I can't be a mom and be on disability. REALLY??? I can't do that. It's like saying, oh, you need a take a couple weeks off WORK and rest your foot. Well, I WORK in my home. I take care of my children. I'm a mom and I'm their teacher, too, so they are here ALL day.
So can a mother really be out on disability? I guess so, but it is not fair to the family. :( The kids are helping me so much. I know they are supposed to help and do chores anyway, but I hate having them fetch me things! I hate not being able to do everything. Maybe this is good for me because I never knew what a control freak I was until I became a mother. It is hard to let go of control!
I am on "disability" because I just went to my foot doctor this morning and he ordered me to take it easy for two weeks because I am having a nerve problem in my foot now as a result of overdoing it from my plantar fasciitis surgery. At least it is not a bunion forming and my doctor said I would get over this. I told him, "I'm not ready for bunions!" Oh, the 40s have not been kind to me so far. Hopefully I will even out here in the next couple of years and get my act together!
So the knee scooter has been resurrected.
So I may or may not have overdone it...
For example, I may or may not have played tennis too soon. I may or may not have walked over half mile to the metro yesterday in DC. I may or may not have done too much in the kitchen.
I have already heard like 4 friends and family say to me today, "Yeah, I was worried you were overdoing it." UGH! Could you guys have had an intervention or something? Maybe hired a live-in maid and cook? Or hired a nanny?
Never mind, I know I am an adult and I should know better. OK, I'm not mad anymore.
I am going to just keep blogging, ignoring my children and eating fudge grahams.
Sigh. Have a nice weekend.
Ugh, I'm out of fudge grahams. Well, at least I can't get up and get more.
