Default NSV--Fingers Across the Tummy

This is not a mini-goal that I actually set, but one I noticed last night and then it got me going on a giggling fit.

A lot of the time, I sleep on my back. My arms are at my side, but across my upper tummy area. Well, last night, I noticed that I've evidently lost enough there that my fingers can now touch when I'm lying that way. I was so excited about it that I started doing a little finger dance and thus the giggles.

This is one of those NSVs that only the people on this forum would understand!

Thanks for the support. Like I said, only the people on 3FC would understand being happy about your fingers touching across your tummy.

LOL I love it! That is similar to one of my favorite successes. When I lie in bed on my side my bottom arm can wrap way up over my shoulder... and I used to have to put my top arm on a pillow to keep it from hanging loosely down. Now when I try that I crack up laughing, as my arm is "way up there."

Fun, isn't it?

Good job betsy! Just more power for the course, right?

And, I totally do those little finger dances too. It's great when people around you long enough pick up on those social cues and do them with you!

Great job and keep up the good work!
