I wish I had an epic story for you about doing a 360 on my snowboard... but this is a tragic tale of falling backward while going about 1 mile per hour. So now I am stuck typing like my mom does, with one finger.

As I wait for surgery to put a plate in my wrist, I keep thinking about all the things I can not do with a broken wrist and will have to wait for at a later date.

1. Compete in an Olympic sport

It's not like I was going to anyway, but the commercials got me hyped up! Last weekend I cruised down those bunny hills thinking maybe if I started snowboarding when I was four that dream could have come true.

2. Text on an iPhone Plus.

Okay, I can do it, but it takes some serious elbow grease to balance that big boy.

3. Workout anything but legs.

Being a workout junkie makes this a moment I have never wanted to arrive.

4. Open tightly closed water bottles.

Who invented these? And why did they make it so hard for the one handed to open? Should I buy this jar opener on Amazon?

5. Put your hair up in a ponytail.

If you have long hair, this is what nightmares are made of.

I only have about six more weeks to go. So grateful for all the help from my family, friends, and coworkers who continuously put my hair up for me.
