When Meredith was little, I could give her a small pack of gummy bears and she would entertain herself by playing with them and making up stories about them. I just saw these adorable twig chairs thanks to whip-up's list of links; I can't imagine how much fun Mere would have making these! (As it turns out, she just told me she did make twig chairs, although not quite as sturdy as these are.)
I'm really starting to dread my foot surgery. I just spoke with my cousin who told me that orthopedic surgeries are some of the most painful type. Reading this article didn't exactly ease my concerns either. I am going to have the surgery on a Friday, and then I have to be off my foot for at least the following work week, a total of ten days. I'm hoping I can channel some of my daughter's ability to entertain herself, but I feel I'm out of practice. I know I have reading, knitting, the internet, and dvds, which should be plenty of entertainment, but I don't know if I can do it for that long without going crazy. Isn't it funny how one always thinks, "if I only had the time. . . ." and then when we do have the time, we complain about it? Or is that just me?
