We're getting our Christmas tree later this week and I want to have packages to put under it. I've wrapped some, but I need to do more. My right arm is feeling almost normal and my left one has come a long way, but the right one is going to have to carry the load. I can see it now: cut, fold, stick tape dispenser under left arm to hold it, pull with right hand, tape and hope for the best. Wish me luck.
I always knew that I threaded my sewing machine needle with my left hand, but I thought that was it, that the rest of the time it was just along for the ride. Not true.
Things I didn't know that I did with my left hand:
Turns out I tear off tape with my left hand
I do the button on my jeans with my left hand
I wrap the scrunchie around my pony tail with my left hand
I tear open packets with my left hand
I hold my book or Kindle in my left hand when I'm reading.
My left hand helps sweep the floor
I hold pans with my left hand while stirring
I unscrew the toothpaste with my left hand
I squeeze the toothpaste with my left hand
And may I point out, don't do any of these things with a sore left arm, it hurts like the dickens.
