Blood, Tears, Stiches and a Tetanus Shot

Oh my GOODNESS what a day I had today. I got off work earlier that my usual "Early Friday" (our office shuts down at noon on Fridays  so I normally leave at 2 or 2:30 but today left at noon) to get my house ready for Facials tomorrow.

So I clean my pretty messy house (wash the dishes, do the laundry, clean the bathroom, scrub the floors, vacuum, etc.). Somehow in the mix of cleaning I decided to eat an avocado and in the middle of pitting it ( have always  pitted avocados by sticking the knife directly into the pit and twisting it out and never once have I cut myself!! ) and the knife slips off the pit and goes through the avocado and into my hand.

RECAP:
Knife
Avocado
Hand

My hand was bleeding profusely and my first instinct was to call T because, well he's a  Corpsman. So I call and he tells me to wash it off and tell him how deep it is. I wash it off and it immediately fills with blood so I can't tell. So he tells me to go to the hospital because he is in the field he couldn't take me =[. My last effort before the hospital was to stop by the neighbors house (T's friends who are all corpsman) to see if anyone was home, no luck there. So off to the hospital I went and almost 3 hours later I walk out with 3 stitches, a wrapped/numb hand and a very painful tetanus shot.   


Now I am sitting in my big hass bed alone, watching Going the Distance (which I kind of don't like, it's pretty vulgar)and letting my stitches "air out" and they are starting to hurt more and more. I would post a picture but looking at my stiches makes me want to barf so I highly doubt you want to see it either.

Today just totally sucked. So I am going to leave you with a few more engagement photos, they bring me joy.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about your hand! That would totally suck and I'm always fearful of cutting myself when I'm cooking. But those engagement pictures are adorable! Those definitely would make your day better :)
