I had such good intentions of blogging more in the new year and staying on track with all my loyal readers. Thanks to everyone who commented or sent me a message about my blog. I really appreciate all the nice thoughts. I wrote that year in review post last Monday. On Thursday afternoon, while prepping some squash for dinner, I cut off the tip of my middle finger. The funny (or not so funny) thing is that I was using my brand new knives that I got as a Christmas present from my dear husband. The doctors and nurses in the emergency room thought that was hilarious and made sure to bid me a Merry Christmas! as we left. Anyway, I haven't been posting because, well, I can't type very well. The nurse that cleaned me up and dressed my finger did a really good job and it took me three hours yesterday to get the bandage off my wound. Now that I am sporting some antibiotic cream and a fancy Dora the Explorer bandage, it is much easier to type. Although, I am going to blame any typos and misspellings on my finger. Just a note, don't cut off the tip of your finger. It hurts really bad, the bleeding doesn't stop and waiting in the emergency room during flu season is really unpleasant. Sooo, I am now back and planning to post more.
The kids are doing well and enjoyed the delayed start from school this morning. We woke up to a nice pretty snow this morning. Life is good around here, aside from said finger-lobbing :)
