Things I have learned to do laying down
« on: October 14, 2015 at 09:50 PM »
Alright mommas, time to share the things you've learned to do laying down that you never thought you'd do while on bed rest! I'll start :D

1. Fold clean towels and clothes
2. Make posters for my church's fall festival
3. Shave my legs (on the couch laying on a beach towel! lol)

Anyone else learned any new tricks?

Whoa, #3 is impressive!!!

I got nothing. My proudest skills are the things I can do with my feet!

I folded the laundry last weekend! I have to learn how to shave my legs like that. It's bad...

Jralex, it's an art form lol! I had my husband get a beach towel and lay it out on the couch and I used aloe gel for my "shaving cream" and just winged it from there! Hard work, but gosh did it feel better when I was done!  :)

I've learned to put my makeup on laying down, write thank you cards laying on my side & paint my nails...though I've spilled a few times and made quite a mess including ruining one of my favorite shirts ????

You ladies crack me up!! Yep I have a new respect for my toes. I can pick up anything, from a dropped toothpick to a pillow :-)

Wow Jensine, a toothpick is pretty impressive  :P I think I could get a pillow or throw blanket, but picking up a toothpick with my toes must be something that comes after I hit veteran-bed-rester status!  :D

It required both feet. One to hold it in place and the other to grab. I doubt I could replicate the maneuver :-)
