Ok, just to get it out of the way up front – OUCH!! My thumb is freaking killing me! Saturday Kim went to work and left me home alone with the baby. Which is fine.. except for to entertain myself between taking care of Sawyer I decided to break down a couple of boxes that had been hanging around in our garage not being recycled for several weeks. To do this I was using scissors.. but that wasn’t fast enough. So I opened them up all the way and tried to used them like a box cutter.. something that I had foolishly done many times in the past. This time, however, my guardian angel was on a smoke break or something.. and *SLASH* right through my thumb!! I didn’t freak out until I saw the inside of my thumb and all the blood and white stuff (fat?). So I called my folks to watch Sawyer and take me to the emergency room. Eight hours later (not joking) I’m home with 9 stitches holding my thumb print on. The nurse who sewed me up said that I didn’t hit any tendons or anything.. so I guess I’m lucky there. I think that this is the first time I’ve ever really hurt myself this badly.. perhaps I am not invincible after all!


¬†Ok, on to some REAL news: Kim may be pregnant again! Woohoo! We’ll know for sure after Friday when she goes to see her doctor.
