Stainless steel-1:: Puja-327 bazillion

Things are mostly getting back on my normal fall schedule. Only one thing seems to be throwing me off…

I managed to gash myself badly with a knife on Friday. I hadn’t planned on visiting a doctor… I assumed the wound would heal itself. Boy, was I glad I went! 3 hours, 10 stitches, 1 tied ulnar artery, and 5 syringes of lidocane later, I’m at least not gushing blood everywhere.

The healing process is now underway and my left forearm/hand is confined to a cast of sorts. Mostly, this is all just some nuisance to me. I never realized how much I really use my left thumb! Buttoning clothes, tying my hair, closing the car door, and typing all take much longer for me to do and require intense thought.

Anyway, my 9 other fingernails have pink glittery color on them. While at CVS I picked up a pack of Sally Hansen Salon Effects on clearance and thought I’d try them out. I’ve been a nail biter much of my life, and have tried everything under the sun to quit (applying acrylic nails, applying an unappetizing deterrent, chewing gum, keeping a stress ball around) and nothing has worked. I believe these stick on polishes may have done the trick! Even though I’m utterly useless around the house (even typing hurts), I get a smile on my face seeing pink glitter. Now that is something even I can’t bite off!

    1. Thanks Mel! My thumb is doing much better… almost fully functioning!
      Hopefully it stops looking gross given some time… and hopefully we can have another high tea soon!
