Just call me Stitch!

What an evening! Nicole invited me over for dinner after work. We were having chicken enchiladas, guacamole, refried beans & salsa. She came over to mow my yard for me today, so she took Sissy home with her, along with my new food processor I got to make salsa with. She was running to Reasors for 1 last minute thing when I got there, & the enchiladas were almost done, so I said I'd start on the salsa.

I was washing the new food processor and trying to be so careful with the blade to NOT get cut, when it slipped and spun around on me just as I was putting it in the soapy water. It nearly sliced the tip off on my right ring finger!  Clay helped me get a couple of bandaids on it and I left for Urgent Care just as Nicole got home to take the enchiladas out of the oven!

It was gushing blood so badly that I didn't even have to sit in the waiting room, which was full of people waiting to be seen! They took me straight back and started fixing me up. The 2 shots on either side of it HURT LIKE H..L! to get it numbed. After that I felt nothing. I watched the Dr. put 4 stitches in it.

Now I have a HUGE bandage (thanks to Katie's friend, Rae, who works there). :o) I have to keep it dry for 2 days and the big bandage on it, then I should be able to wear a bandaid for the next 10-12 days, 'til my stitches come out. I also can't go back to work until Tuesday.

The anesthetic is starting to wear off and it's starting to hurt. Gonna have to take some Motrin, and quit trying to type.  :o)

Go Pirates!

I went to my grandson, Tony's, football game tonight. Sperry beat Verdigris 28-8! Yay! Go Pirates! I don't know the first thing about football, so I sat there asking Kiamitia questions during the entire game. I told her for Christmas I need a book called "Football For Dummies"! LOL! She said she'd try to find me one!

No Show Osmonds

I went to Branson, MO this weekend with the rest of the Golden Osgirls. We were so excited to be going to see the Osmonds again, and all 6 of us together for the first time! We were almost there when Pam posted a comment on her Facebook page about the trip, and a friend replied to it telling us the guys had cancelled the show for Saturday night! What a letdown!

Lesa had class on Saturday, and wasn't able to leave until 4:30pm, so she drove separately and made it there with 20 minutes to spare before showtime. We didn't tell her about the cancellation until we met her at the theater. She thought we were joking at first, but said she did notice there weren't many cars in the parking lot!

We ended up going to see the movie "The Town" at the IMAX theater. It wasn't a bad movie, I just didn't like hearing the "f word" constantly throughout the entire movie. We got a cake at Walmart and went back to the motel to have a belated birthday party for Pam.

Sunday we took a pic of all 6 of us in our "Hot Flashing For Donny" t-shirts in the parking lot of the motel. That was a hoot! I'll post it as soon as I get a copy from Pam, since we used her camera. We shopped for awhile then headed home.

I guess I won't be seeing the Osmonds this year. The last time I saw them was last November.
