Bet you never thought there'd be a connection between those two items. But there is:
Toilet Paper Rolls
Once it's hanging on the wall, you won't be able to tell the difference. I'm hoping.
I made that, in case you were wondering.
I know--two crafts in less than two weeks! I'm amazing!
I've been saving up the toilet paper rolls for months for this one. And now that I have to stay off of my feet as much as possible, it seemed like the perfect time. It was a pretty quick and easy task. I actually pieced it all together while nursing. That's how easy it was!
And I'm pretty proud of it. And since we have toilet paper rolls as a result of other needs (ahem) and the spray paint was from a craft years ago, this technically cost me nothing! Sweet!
Also, I swam this morning. My podiatrist wasn't sure that would be okay because the kicking motion might bother my fracture. As long as I didn't really kick with my right leg, I was fine. I swam for almost 30 minutes! It was so fun and so great and a relief to know that I can still get in some form of exercise over the next few weeks.
And what a reminder about how much of a workout swimming really is!
Multiple people have reached out since I began posting about my therapy with questions, support, encouragement, and kind words. Thank you to all of you. I really appreciate the support system you provide for me here. I appreciate those who let me know they are benefiting from my (sometimes painful and challenging) honesty here. I appreciate knowing that I'm not alone.
