Take a look at this picture and tell me what you see…
Yes, Jim is sweaty and grimy and fixed a leak in the water supply line to our house a couple of days ago, but that’s not it…OK, remember this from mid-August?
Hooray, the blue cast is finally gone!! Jim actually got it off two weeks ago, and we were surprised at how painful his hand has been. The doc actually says the posture of his thumb is good, and he’s been going through physical therapy to work on regaining full use of his hand. Jim claims that his physical therapist, Irma, is mean…no offense, Irma 🙂 Actually, he says that she is very good, but a lot of the stuff she has him do really hurts – hence, the “mean”.
At least, the cast seems to have done the trick, and hopefully he has avoided surgery on this – that’s always good news! So, Jim’s back in action with the renovation. Fixing the water supply leak wasn’t exactly “renovation”, but just one of those maintenance items that seems to go along with owning a 28-year-old house. He did an expert job, and when I asked him how he knew what to do he said, “I watched Richard Trethewey do it on “This Old House”.” Amazing. I could not watch someone do something on TV and then do it myself to save my life! I love being married to a handy guy 🙂
