Top 10 Good Things About Having A Broken Wrist

10. Pity. I take it when I can get it.

9. Pain medicine. Vicodin is a beautiful thing.

8. Your other arm gets a big workout. Bye, bye underarm flab!

7. Free food. I've gotten all this wonderful homemade stuff from people. My faves? Homemade veggie soup and homemade mac and cheese.

6. Sleeping as long as you want (see #9).

5. Flowers. I got two beautiful pink and purple arrangements.

4. It sure beats a broken leg.

3. No pretenses. Showering and make-up can take a back burner.

2. No one can blame you for not getting that knitting done in time for their birthday.

And the number 1 Good Thing about having a broken wrist?

1. Visitors. So many wonderful people have stopped by to check on me (in person, by phone, text message, and e-mail) since I got home Thursday, and I've got my mother here over the weekend. I am so grateful to everyone. I'm feeling very blessed by my friends--all of you. Thanks. :-)
