Digit drama - redux

You know you've had a renewing, energizing and excellent getaway from day to day life when you're excited and ready to get back into your usual routines.  At least I know!  After feeling so sick and tired of "running on empty" about work for the last month, I was actually excited to come back this morning, see people and catch up with what went on during my brief time off.

 It's hard for me to type right now because I had yet another finger incident in the kitchen this morning!  Recall me cutting the crap out of my thumb last Sunday while slicing apples, to the tune of it taking over 2 1/2 hours to stop bleeding.  Well, today I went to rinse my coffee pot and when I pulled the lid off, the pot tapped gently, or so I thought, against the inside of the sink.  As I went to pick it up, my right index finger went straight into a jagged edge of the pot where a tiny piece of glass had popped out that I hadn't realized was there.  Yep - blood everywhere, long deep gash across the tip of the finger,so I had to drop everything and put pressure on it, wrap a tight gauze and tape around it just so i could get a shower and ready for work.  I haven';t peeked under the bulky bandaging yet, but it's probably slowed or stopped by now.  I really don't want to even check it yet.  I'm typing with my middle finger only on the right hand, and I keep making typos and tryiong to catch them!  So this will be pretty brief.  For your edification, I'm including visual aids :) .

My usual oatmeal and breakfast were aborted, but I'll be having some TJoe's Greek yogurt in a little while.  I wanted to report that my food was good over the 3 days in Atlanta - no restricting, absolutely no bingeing or food sneaking when I was driving alone(a historical MO of mine when in Atlanta).  However, yesterday I did have some stuiff way off plan - not in binge mode.  Something about flying home after a trip always sort of unleashes a bit of food wackiness for me.  I don't normallyon't eat a large Butterfinger candy bar during the day, about 20 ginger snaps, nor have grilled cheese with plenty of butter on the bread for dinner.  Today I'm back on track and am not going to weigh untiul Friday.  I may participate in a 2 week challenge Tammy told me about that I haven't looked at yet, just to augment my Hot 100 endeavor.  But my clothes are feeling a bit looser than 2 weeks ago for suire, so I'm feeling pretty optimistic.

I'll put up pics of Tammy's and my meet and greet along with a few other Atlanta photos tomorrow when my finger can be dressed in just a bandaid rather than an attractive over sized pressure dressing.  Have a good Monday!

  2. Just tell people you are practicing your mummy costume for Halloween! I'm a klutz in the kitchen, so I get it.

    Glad you are back and had fun in Atlanta.

  3. So sorry about your finger! Be careful!

    I share your return trip food wackiness. It's the darnest thing - I can be spot on all during any trip, only to have it crumble on the return home. My return trip this weekend was no exception. Don't know if it is tired, boredom or what. If you figure it out, let me know.

  10. Yowza! I think you need a persona chef for your own protection!

    So weird, but I tend to do the same thing on the return leg of vacations. My rule is that once I cross back over the county line, all eating must be back to normal, so I guess it's that last-ditch splurge? Any case, sounds like you had a great time and that's what's important! :)
