After one of the busiest weekends I've had in quite a while, this morning I woke up early.
Today we had a pounding at church for our new youth minister and his wife. I love a pounding. It's a chance for the church members to bring household items for the couple. Mostly food and cleaning supplies, or money. A pounding is one of my favorite ways for a church to show its love!
Anyway.... I had to get up early to make 2 dozen sandwiches and guacamole. Because not only were we pounding them, we were also providing lunch for the church. I just love a church get together!
Anyway.... While making the guacamole early this morning, I was having trouble getting the seed (or is it called a pit?) out of the guacamole. So, instead of hitting it horizontally with the knife I hit it vertically and the knife went straight through the seed and into my hand.
I yelled for Stephen. He came and put pressure on it while I tried not to throw up. For some reason it made me nauseous. After the bleeding stopped and we made sure I had feeling in all of my fingers I finished the guacamole and preceded to get every one's clothes pressed and myself dressed for church.
We talked with a nurse at church and she said it wouldn't need stitches. And then I got an ex-paramedic to put clean it and put some steri-strips on it to close the wound. ( I really wanted to use gaping as an adjective but decided to keep it real instead!)
Can I just tell you that my hand hurts?? It hurts, and its been over 12 hours. But, if you don't know me, you don't know that my pain tolerance isn't very high(no comments Daddy!) My fingers are swollen and I think they maybe a little purple!
But don't panic. Everything is just as it is supposed to be. I can still move them and I am typing this with both hands. Its just that this is my blog and I decided to tell you how it really is. And it really hurts!!!
Ok! Enough of that. So, have you ever cut yourself with a knife? My sister has, I'll have to tell her to post that one on the sisters blog!
