Change is as Good as.....
Since scenery is the only thing I can change right now, I thought I'd go for a new look on my blog. At least I've been occupied for a couple of hours getting to understand a few of the newer blog templates and gadgets, thus taking my mind off my miserable right knee.
I never knew there were so many things one could do to a blog, but not being too tech minded, I've stuck to a couple of basics and will explore others in my spare time ......of which I have plenty!
I looked at all the gadgets and now I want to put up a sliding picture show but I can't get the Slideshow gadget thing to work! I've tried numerous ways suggested on Blogger Help but no success so far. Any help would be appreciated! In the meantime I'll keep trying......if at first you don't succeed etc. etc..
While I was waiting for sleep last night I mentally started making a list of all the things I can't do now while my knee is so painful; it's an exercise in self-pity, I know, but here it is:
Things that matter but which I'm unable to do:
I can't run
I can't jog
I can't walk
I can't drive the car
I can't do the gardening
I can't sleep well
I can't lie on my side
I can't go up steps
I can't go down steps
I can't sit down...I crash!
I can't get up after sitting...I lead with my head!
While I'm awake now it's only fair, I suppose, to list the things I can still do! But.....
I can think of very few! This is real bad news, but here it is:
I can use a walking stick
I can read
I can watch television
I can think....even if it's only about the things on the ever- expanding list of the things I can't do!
