1 part negative, 2 parts positive

I'm "borrowing" today's post theme {high-low} from Taylor at Goings On In Texas. The idea is to write out your recent high and low points. Who doesn't need a personal day every now and then? 
Am I right, or am I right?
+With my recent injury {broken ankle, surgery} I am unable to drive, travel for work, or any other normal day to day activity. Can you just imagine how that makes me feel? BLAH
+There are some other things that have gotten complicated with work as a result of my injury. Too much to get into, but enough to stress me the eff out.
+Feeling unsatisfied. That is all.
+Finding out my friends are planning a ski trip for the end of the year. That'll be real fun in a cast, no?
+Reading Erin's post. Trust me, you'll want to read this. It made me feel 10,000,000 times better about myself.{Secrets Anonymous}
+Ryan has been AMAZING since my injury. Even though it's his busiest time of the year with work, he still comes home to take care of me, cook dinner, and clean {what I can't do each day}. 
And he never complains. 
+I've made it through one week in my cast. That's one week closer to not being in a cast!
+My friends have been amazing over the last week or so. Random visits are my favorite.
+I've received lots of love from the blog world this week too.
+Our families have ALSO been amazing this week. I just can't even tell you how lucky we are to have awesome parents! {And my momma will be here this weekend just to 'keep me company'}
+My future SIL (and pretty much already a sister) sent me a get well package. Encouraging words, candy, silly socks, and GAK=The perfect feel better combo.
Like Taylor, I ended on the highs...being positive can help you turn your day/week around. Plus, typing this all out made me feel a lot better about everything. 

Speaking of turning my week are a few things that have put a smile on my face this week.
Out to lunch with a good friend :)
Cuddles are 
Just a friendly reminder...
One of my new favorite snacks--whipped peanut butter on grahams. 
Parts of the super sweet care package I got today.
Because I can't get any of my jeans over this cast, I now live in yoga pants.
This was ok the first week--not so great now. I'm really trying to keep my hair and makeup
at the normal level so I will feel like a regular human being through my recovery.
