Skirts, as it turns out, can be handy thing. I personally do not like to wear them. They seem a little too girly for me. I remember one year in high school I tried to go the entire year without wearing it and I chose to wear one on my boyfriend's (now my husband's) birthday -- I thought it would make it a "special occasion". But, I am going to be wearing a skirt everyday for the next two weeks. You see I have found that using crutches and going to the bathroom can be a challenge. Pulling shorts down while balancing on one leg then figuring out how to sit is rather complicated. So, it seems to me that a skirt is the way to go. I can pull it up and tuck it down the front of my shirt to hold it in place. Who knew I would find such a good use for a skirt? Now I sort of wish I owned more. :) I am sure my friends will think me crazy as they see me on crutches in my skirts given I am rarely wearing them in the first place! Another thing crosses my mind... these skirts that I am wearing also have elastic waist bands which as it turns out are comfortable... perhaps I need to rethink the "girly" factor and just wear skirts more often -- after all I am a homeschooler... I should be wearing denim jumpers all the time anyway!
