A little bit of this and that...

Not much stitching got done this past week. Early in the week when I finally got my stitching mojo back, I cut my index finger while making dinner. I was trying to get that stupid plastic thingy off the potato bag and it must have had a nice sharp edge. Nice deep slice; good thing I wasn't handling the food at that point. That very same night (or should I say early morning) around 3:00 a.m. Logan woke me up needing a diaper change. OMG! I do hate middle of the night stinky diaper blow outs! LOL I was trying to open the wipes and somehow sliced my middle finger (of the same hand) on the stupid container. Oh what fun that diaper change was let me tell you!

The next day when I was awake (after a gallon of coffee as neither of us could fall back to sleep before 5:00 and I had to get up at 6:30) and ready to stitch. Hmmm, a little too sore to do it without a bandaide. You know, you really can't stitch with bandaides on your fingers because they keep snagging on the thread. Not only could I not stitch but typing was just as painful; what a crappy way to start the week! I did get to read a good book though so I guess all was not completely lost. The new novel by Stephenie Meyer called The Host was extremely good. Of course, I loved her other Twilight series so I thought why not give it a try?!?! Totally different from that series but just as entertaining.

DH was sick on top of all that fun so it's not like I would have been able to get much stitching done anyway. Poor baby never gets sick but when he does WOW! He's starting to feel almost human this week but with the weather not making up it's mind he may just end up getting it again or dealing with some really fun allergies. Stay away from the kids PLEASE!! LOL So far (knock on wood!) the kids are all doing fine, a few allergies acting up but nothing major.

Ryan is loving school and actually walking to class now. His best little buddy was out most of last week with strep throat. I have NO IDEA how he managed not to get it. Another poor little guy had the stomach flu and ended up in the hospital from dehydration. We've been there done that so I'm SO THANKFUL that stayed away from him this time. He was so happy to see Tristen this morning. He ran right over to him and sat down and started chatting at him. He'd realize that Katie and I were still there and run back for a minute for a quick hug then right back to his buddy. Too cute!

Logan lost another tooth last night. Little bugger wouldn't let me near his mouth. He'd run giggling away from me until I captured him to check out his mouth. Poor tooth fairy! Not getting the tooth again this time unless she'd like to dig for it when he decides to "release it". UGH! Second one that I was unable to snag. To be totally fair, I didn't realize he was dealing with a loose tooth because he's been fine. No major screaming fits other than the normal stuff so I had absolutely no idea it was loose. It took me a few minutes to figure out that the stupid thing was even missing. I only noticed it when he grinned at me before taking off running away from me. Hmm, that hole in his smile wasn't there a little while ago. LOL

Ouchy! I sliced a finger a couple of years ago helping dh cut a board - it slipped and cut my finger. I was done stitching until it healed, because you're right, you can't stitch with a bandage. Enjoy your book!

Sorry about your finger Terri, I hope you can stitch now! xxx

Yes, I know exactly what those sliced up fingers are like when trying to stitch!!! I am a bit of a clutz, so I understand! Hope DH is feeling better and glad that the little one did not get sick!

Goodness Terry, your poor fingers. Those cuts can be the worst! Hope you can stitch again soon.

Two slices on the same hand in the same day? Oy! Ouchie.

How old is Logan that he's swallowing teeth? LOL

Carolyn NC said...

Ouch - hate those kinds of cuts! Hope you heal quickly. Nice news on everyone.

Wow, what a week you had! Hope that your finger is better and that you can stitch again. I cut myself like that here a while ago and trying to do a lot of things is more difficult than you can imagine. Take care!
