Looking on the Bright Side!


I would rather that it not have happened but if I must look on the bright side then that bright side would have to be NO dishes for 2 weeks. Yahoo!!!!


The one chore that I most despise is doing dishes. A task that gets done in our home usually twice a day will now be turned over to the man and lil men of our home.


Yesterday morning as I was washing dishes a glass broke and cut the side of my pinky. I called for back-up. (I am fine helping others that are hurt but when I am the victim then I tend to get queasy.) We got it wrapped and I sat for an hour with it above my head to stop the bleeding. Then all was fine, or so I thought.

My husband came home from work and said that I really needed it looked at. My SIL, who is a RN stopped over and said the same thing.

Needless to say, a short while later we were headed to the ER.
Several hours later we were discharged with a splinted finger, 8 stitches and a 2 week REPRIEVE from dishes.
Now I'm just hoping that we don't get the FLU because the ER was full of patients with flu-like symptoms.
I guess you have to take the bad with the good !
Or in my case a little of the bad to get the good! (i.e. NO DiSHES) :0)
Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

We have been to the ER three times in the past few months. My husband wrecked the 4 wheeler & hurt his back, Katie broke her arm on the swingset and now this. This had better be the last trip for quite some time.

Take care of youself, Jessica, and enjoy the break from cleaning!

Olde Dame Penniwig said...

Well I'd say with all those stitches that you have earned that 2-week break from dishes!

Hope the flu bug stays away from you and yours. Yes, the ER is a scary place to have to wait during flu season especially!!!
