I’m not afraid to tell you that these past few weeks of recovery have been some of my most challenging times ever!!
Dealing with the big, ugly air cast is one thing…but having both hands occupied with crutches makes absolutely everything sooo much more difficult to do; unless I’m sitting down, I can’t even hold my own Starbucks cup for goodness sake!! And I’ve certainly never had to give quite as much forethought to my outfit planning as I do right now; getting dressed has become a true “event” all by itself, rather than something that’s more or less a means to an end (i.e. heading out to enjoy the day!!)
Still, it’s been really important to me to “keep up appearances,” as the saying goes…as fans of fashion and style, we all know that looking good plays a really big part in actually feeling good, as well.
And so, dear readers, I will continue to “fight the good fight”…and temper those moments of frustration and impatience (yes, they happen – just ask my poor husband!) with some tricks of camouflage; whether it’s a literal interpretation like pairing today’s shirt-worn-as-a-jacket (remember seeing it in my “Boy versus girl” post?) with a sheer floral maxi-dress, or some other outfit creation that I hope will help keep my mind off my woes – and keep other’s eyes off my toes (funny, right?!)
The battle continues!!
