… it becomes remarkably satisfying to remember how to do said thing (and no, I'm not about to talk about bicycle riding. At this stage I kind of doubt that I'll ride my bike until after I get back from my next trip and/or the one after, but hopefully soon!). Today's small victory was doing a very shabby French braid with my long hair (yep it's long again if you hadn't already noticed). I'm not really sure what I want to do with my hair at the moment… I know that it needs a trim as it's been well over a year since my last haircut (which, by the way, is partially my being too lazy and also just WAY too long to go without a haircut by the way). Still, I like being able to do stuff with my hair so there's that. And it's summer-like outside these days so that's a good excuse to tie my hair up or let it air dry nicely.
The downside of said French braid hair adventure is that I realized just how painful my arms were being at the time. It's easy enough to ignore them when they're at rest or even in a neutral position but when they're being THAT uncomfortable while trying to do something that takes a certain degree of dexterity, it's rather disconcerting. I really truly look forward to a time when my arms aren't a liability again. Someday I'll get some medical answers, I hope, but in the meantime I'm going to go on living my life and trying not to let them get in my way of being productive and having a good time.
