Well I broke my ankle and dislocated my knee so I was on bed rest for quite a while. I have to admit I got really bored after a while. But I read a lot, watched TV or movies, used my laptop to play games on Facebook and spend time on Cafe Mom. I don't crochet or anything but I know some women really enjoy it. And there are always word puzzle books and things like that. Hopefully someone can give you more answers. My best to you.
