Please tell me at least i'm burning more calories...

i just showered. Did the whole routine--shoe on the cast, wrap a towel around the cast, giant black garbage bag over the whole thing. As soon as i stepped into the water, i felt it running down inside the bag. Plan B, balance aforementioned casted/shoe-ed/toweled/bagged foot on the edge of the tub, precariously. By the time i'd washed and conditioned my hair, scrubbed my body, and scraped the stubble from underarms and one leg with a dull razor, i was exhausted. Huffing and puffing like i was three times my already generous size... Ready to move on with the day? i don't THINK so--more like "ready for a nap."

So, please tell me i'm at least burning more calories than usual...

Julie, you are no doubt burning more calories than usual. I commend you for still being able to smile so much while confined to your house. If my family weren't here I would be taking you out every day! I do know what it's like to be stuck like that. It drives me crazy...

Well, when my family "takes off" I'll be at your disposal. (By the by, isn't that a funny expression? Does that mean you can dispose of me?)

See you soon neighbor,
adina

oh my! I hate to hear about your broken toe. It sounds like the pain of living with the cast is worse than the pain of breaking the toe! I agree the shower sounds like quite the workout. If you're not burning more calories, there's got to be something wrong with the math!

Adina Paulina, i would NEVER throw you away!! Then who would take me to Target when i can't drive?

And Tersie, thank you so much for feeling my pain--there's nothing better than a good gripe-fest, except a good gripe-fest with a sympathetic listener! ;-)
