I have to trick myself into sitting still and into believing that healing is the task at hand.
I've been coloring, embroidering & watching documentaries. All in the attempt to keep myself still and allow the inner knee ligament time to heal. It is only Week #2 and already, I am tired of sitting around.
I discovered that my bag of crayons is really 8 boxes of 8 gathered together to look like they are a box of 64. A few of the same colors are missing from each box. Because some are older, papers look different and even colors look different. I pull out a blue and it is the same blue I just used, as are the greens, reds, yellows, oranges and pinks.
I am so frustrated that I want to throw them all away, but then would be without. That is a pretty grown-up response. They will be replaced as soon as I feel good enough to shop. Meanwhile, I shop from my closet, even with crayons.
And I am resting my knee.
