Kitchen Danger Zone

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Well, I messed up the back of my thumb yesterday...was replacing the big fruit-vegetable drawer on the refrigerator (it's a separate compartment which has its own place above the freezer drawer) and caught the thumb as the drawer was falling back into place. It tore the skin off and started bleeding pretty well. After going through two regular bandages, I put a gauze pad over it and didn't see any more blood coming through. This morning when I woke up the dressing was gone (fell off during sleep) and fortunately the wound is now hardened ...sorry, this is getting gross. I'd better stop the descriptions!

On a better note, yesterday I finally started an idea on the "NaNoWrMo" project. That's "National November Writing Month" which challenges you to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. I don't think I'll make the deadline but at least maybe I'll have a start on something I've always wanted to do--write a novel.

Excuse me, got to get dressed and go back to my writing! And practicing piano...and exercising of course.

    next time try putting pressure on your wound for about 5-10 minutes, this will stop the bleeding. I'm glad it is all better now though! I like to write too! Maybe one day in the future i can try writing a book, who knows! good luck, may the creative juices flow your way haha
