Typing today is difficult, literally. I had an elbow surgery last week, and am still in a splint, which is supposed to come off tomorrow (can you hear me yell CAN’T WAIT!!!), but I’ve been down to one hand when it comes to typing, doing dishes, putting on makeup, and all the other things you do with two hands.
Here is the list of things I miss doing with my left hand/arm the most:
- Doing my hair and makeup.
- Wearing my wedding rings.
- Cooking and cleaning.
- Knitting and crocheting.
- Carrying stuff.
- Opening a jar.
- Being able to hug Sam and scratch Mason at the same time when I sit between the two of them on the couch.
Over the past two weeks I had an amazing opportunity to travel to Milwaukee and Seattle for job interviews. And this story, unlike the trip and fall has a happy ending. I have a job lined up after college. It’s still surreal and I sometimes have to pinch myself, but I am beyond excited.
Milwaukee was unbelievably warm at 70 F when we landed on Thursday. A strange mix between St Paul and Chicago, it was captivating. I couldn’t stop exploring, and may have ended up barefoot in the streets, because I couldn’t take my heels any longer. But it’s all snapchat history now.
Seattle was amazing. I’ve never been to the West Coast before, and it was beautiful with all it’s rain, water and mountains. There is a Russian place called Piroshky Piroshky, and even though they didn’t have the Vatrushka I wanted, I got my Russian pastry fix and a discount on top of that. I also got to meet a lot of amazing people and see one of the fastest growing companies that has been making a lot of news from the inside.
I will be back more often now, I promise. I think I’ve promised it at the end of every post lately, but I will be, I am going to try!
