So, with all the power tools going around here, the heavy lifting, the occasional splintered wood... it was bound to happen. Just a matter of time before somebody (aka ME) got hurt :)
Funny thing is, though, when I ended up in the urgent care today to get stitches, it wasn't because of anything furniture-related.
I cut the #*^@ out of my hand with a pair of very sharp scissors. While volunteering at the kids' school. Our fabulous nurse patched me up but warned me I might need more serious attention and unfortunately she was right.
Don't worry, I took these iphone pictures very carefully so that you don't have to see the gore of the inch-wide and very-deep divot I cut out of my hand. With scissors.
Lesson learned: when cutting stubborn objects (I was cutting the backs off of some metal brads, don't even ask why), DO NOT place the object in the palm of your hand, and then get distracted by the adorable children doing their Thanksgiving poems. Blood & pain will ensue.
In other, MUCH more exciting news, the stereo cabinet is finished!!!!! But I couldn't bear to put it into a post with stitches & lidocaine. It deserves much better than that.
So, I'll be back this weekend at some point to share. And I'll eventually share the project that my friend Juliette & I have been working on for weeks ~ it is a class project that will be auctioned off at the school gala in the spring. We've been in the classroom more hours than I care to count but have enjoyed every minute of it. Here's a sneak peek...
Oh, and once I get all the vicodin out of my system, we'll be doing the great give-away!
Have a great weekend, everyone! Stay safe :)
