It's been three weeks for today since I felt this sciatica pain! I can hardly believe it!
I felt a little better, today. I still can't stand for long, but, I was able to make myself a cup of tea in the morning while daughter slept in and I managed to get myself a few snacks from time to time. I also managed to scrub the toilet in the afternoon! I felt such a sense of accomplishment! I never thought I could get so excited about cleaning the toilet! LOL.
I couldn't quite manage to make the evening tea by myself, however. I put the water to boil, but, daughter had to pour the boiling water and keep the tea to steep for me. Then, I went back to the kitchen to add the sugar and milk. Baby steps!
I spent most of the afternoon knitting. I finished knitting the front of the sweater I am making for my daughter and started on the first sleeve. I might not be able to do housework or gardening, but, I can take this time of enforced rest to knit! I will still be accomplishing something!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Feeling a little better
- The little tasks I was able to accomplish
- Access to the internet
- Phone calls and emails with family and friends
- My daughter's help
Today's joyful activity was...scrubbing the toilet! Yes! Really! LOL! It made me feel so good to be able to do that one small household task! Followed closely by knitting, of course.
No plans for tomorrow as I am taking things one day at a time. Hopefully, hopefully, I will continue to feel better, please. Most probably I will continue with the knitting.
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for the rest of this long weekend?
