    can't go into detail, but i'm on lay up for the forseeable future suggestions on keeping my sanity?

    I broke my foot in November. Did some one-footed yoga, tried to catch up on work, but also spent lots of time reading novels and catching up on TV shows that I never watch. We don't have a TV so I downloaded.

    Good luck and hope you feel better soon!

    Depends on the details of your layup. Are you flat on your back or just non weight bearing?

    I survived 11 weeks NWB thanks to a rented electric scooter. I did a fair amount of sewing and reading....I have a limited tolerance for TV. That was several years ago. Now I would hope or something like a Kindle Fire or iPad. Also sorted out a LOT of digital photos.
    If I have the hardware removed from my ankle it will be at least 6 weeks NWB....I plan to work on my Spanish and search out my family history
