Wanna see the fantastic new accessory I acquired just this morning?
Yep, I am sporting my very own, very stylish arm sling as of this morning. I slipped while climbing down the small but steep bank of the neighborhood creek, yesterday. I landed hard on my left arm. (Talk about tender mercies--it wasn't my right!) I thought at first that I was going to be okay, but then it started to hurt. Really, really hurt. Enough that I almost said words out loud that I normally wouldn't even think. So, this morning I went to the doctor and came home with a sling.
It's a good thing I've had children, because I've had lots of practice doing things with one hand. Unfortunately, this kind of puts a damper on all the sewing and painting projects I had lined up for this week. You know, though, maybe my sling can double as a purse! Or maybe I can figure out how to make my own slings out of really cute fabric, and then people won't wonder what happened to my arm, they'll just wonder where I got that fabulous, new accessory.
Anyone have any good tips for carrying on as usual with one less arm?
