Alix do you have other animals that live on the property? If not, try surrounding the garden with moth balls.

You could also go to a sports good store and get skunk oil or some other animal urine to spread around. Fox, or any animal that is meant to hunt vermin.

Cut myself shaving left-handed this morning. Showering is a laugh riot. I've found I can dry off by laying in bed and turning the ceiling fan to 'high'. It's faster to let SO help.

Seems you need an electric shaver while you are incapacitated. No helpful hints aside from letting SO help.

Time for an electric razor.

Hope your arm gets better soon and lets you get on with your life without having to hop through hoops to do everyday stuff.

I hate electric shavers. I'd rather risk cutting myself. Besides I only shave a couple of times a week.

SO has been helping a lot. She tries to act tough but it's a lie. The morning after the surgery, she announced I had 24 hours of her being nice to me then the pity party would be over. I have to fight her off so I can do stuff myself. I remind her I still have one good arm. I try to save her for the stuff that's really a bother to do myself.

I remember when I wrecked the elbow on my dominant arm it took me a while to figure out how to use my other hand to use the TP! Don't let SO help you with THAT Andy! Brushing teeth was tough with a non dominant hand as well. Doing up my jeans, putting on socks...the list was endless.

Wishing you a speedy recovery my friend. I sympathize and wish I could help in some way other than listening to your vents. Gentle hug Andy.

Thanks Alex using the TP was the first thing I practiced left-handed. Brushing my teeth is easier because I use an electric toothbrush so all I really have to do is kind of point it in the right direction.

Truth be told, most of the stuff is doable left-handed, it just takes longer and it's kind of frustrating because it's something you don't even think about the rest of the time.

... And trust me there's no way I could've gotten SO to help me with the TP. She already told me should be happy to throw out my underwear buy me new ones.
