Life with a peach cast – take two

First, let me update something: my pretty peach cast has been replaced with boring brown…

Today, I want to talk about chaos. What happens when the only person who lifts a finger in the house ends up with only half the amount of fingers to lift? Big, ginormous, super-duper mess! That’s what happens! And the worst part is, everybody seems to be completely oblivious to it. I am actually questioning: is it real? Or am I imagining the pile of dishes in the sink, the papers all over the floor, the dirty clothes in every bedroom? Could they just be the product of my imagination? It would seem so… Whenever I look annoyed because I just tripped on a pair of shoes left in the middle of the corridor, the kids look at me with surprise. “What? What have we done?”

I tell you, sympathy wore off pretty quickly after I came back from the hospital last week. One thing for sure, this experience helped me assess my relationship with all living things under my roof. Here is how it goes:

1 Dog: top of the list. Good guy. Genuinely concerned for my well being. Does not leave my sight anymore, although he will snap my tendon again if he does not stop sitting on me at every occasion. Does not know better poor guy… Would love to  lick my wounds to help me heal. Aaaawwwww, so disgusting, yet so cute!

2. Kids: feel sorry for me on occasions.  But rarely and never for more than one minute. Don’t mind helping as long as not in the middle of video game. Obviously, financial incentives are well received (note to self: kids are too old to be emotionally blackmailed!)

2b. Daughter: does not feel sorry for me. Not one bit. Nope…

3. Husband: Who? What tendon? Really? Oh well, s@&t happens…

4. Cat: grrrrrr, I swear, she has noticed that I am weaker and she thinks that she now has the upper hand. She attempts to trip me off, or stuff her head inside my cast when I am asleep. That cat has got an evil mind, I must be on my guards…

5 Fish: I can’t say too much because the investigation is on-going so I am not allowed to go public, until they are convicted for attempting to kill me! Quite understandably, they are my worst enemies but I can’t be obvious about it, otherwise I am going to look vengeful and bitter, which I totally am. Some might say, “What goes around comes around”, i.e. I was endangering their survival by not taking care of their tank, and in a twisted turn of events, I am the one who got in deep trouble. But those who think like that will rank even lower on my list.
