This weekend was nothing short of uneventful. Friday, we stayed in and watched a marathon of The Bridge, a series on FX that we got two episodes into and then forgot about.
Saturday we slept half the day away then went to the river on the new boat, climbing rapid. If you've ever gone kayaking then you know that going down rapids can be a little scary, but going up them is a whole different story. I was worried we would get turned sideways and capsize, but thankfully we didn't.

Sunday was a lazy, do things around the house day and not much else. All weekend I exercised my arm, working on getting my range of motion back. There are so many things, having two fully functioning arms, that I take for granted. Sure there are the big things, like getting dressed and driving a car, but there are little things too:
Brushing my hair
Drying off after a shower
Typing (I can use both hands now, but if I go for too long my arm starts to hurt)
Braiding my hair
Washing my hair
(pretty much anything to do with hair)
putting makeup on
...and the list goes on
Since "breaking" it, I've become pretty grateful for this ole left arm of mine. The first few days were tough but every day I'm getting stronger and able to do more things. Each day I try to do something new. Friday I could put my hair in a ponytail by myself. Saturday, I could open my car door without any pain. Sunday I could do a side braid (my arm still won't bend the right way to braid straight down the back of my head). Today will be my first day back in the gym (don't worry I'm taking it easy) so wish me luck!
