Today was such a good day! My friend Steve stopped by to say hi, I learned I’m getting a new niece or nephew in October (YAY Steve and Daisha!), got to eat at my fav food truck, AND I finished painting the interior!
Friend Steve …
I was SO excited to have finished painting that I went down to the Home Depot and bought a router. This tool I have to have to cut out the wood I put over the windows (so I could paint). I was stoked that I even knew what tool to get (due to previous research and scouting)…you can imagine my excitement when I got back home and there was daylight left!
But in the middle of opening up the router-bit clamshell package that is designed to survive Armageddon, something slipped.
I looked down and saw this…
That was nothing compared to the crime scene that was now on my hand.
Annoyed that I couldn’t finish the windows, I walked over to the spigot to wash off the torrent of red and see how deep this cut really was. After about a minute of thorough flushing, I still couldn’t tell.
I had to go in to the main house for a second opinion: Stitches…or No?
When we finally got the bleeding to stop, this is what it looked like…
Not amused ^
Pretty clean, right?
My friend Lisbet and I decided that it could probably go either way with the Urgent Care and the stitches. I could go wait for hours and pay several hundred dollars for stitches, or I could butterfly it at home. Also, we have wine at home.
Can you guess which one I chose? 🙂
The kitchen ER ^
The butterfly ^
The “I’m Super Excited About This” face, also the “I Can Feel My Heartbeat in My Finger” face ^
The paint turned out really well though so at least there’s that… I’d explain more but it kind of hurts to type and 3-finger typing is weird.
Lessons for the day:
- Rent paint sprayers. They are worth the money when you can finish painting in 15 minutes.
- Gallons of paint are expensive. Be prepared.
- Routers are cool.
- Router bits are rat bastards.
- Kitchen ERs are far superior to other ERs .
- Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly.
Dang. I could really use some chocolate.
