I am no hand model but I do rely on my hand to paint!
Last night trying to get everyone out the door for Curling and Ice Skating I got my finger caught underneath the microwave and ripped half of my fingernail out of place-OOOOOOUCH.
I will not show you that photo.
So needless to say we ended up at the Doctor's office because the bottom part of the nail was on top of the cuticle.  They numbed the area then tried to push the nail back in place so that a new nail will follow the track and grow back in the right place.
It took two Nurse Practitioners about 6 times to try this and the Novocaine kept wearing off.  Can we all say THROBBING pain!!  Now I cannot get this wet for three to four days-yea no washing the dishes!!
By 10:30 we were finally home...the funniest part of all of this was that I was not charged money for the swear jar and just yesterday I received two huge custom orders!?!
Enjoy your weekend-I see sleep and a pain pill in mine.


  1. Not laughing at your pain, Barb, but I AM your post!! Yay for the 'freeforall' on the Swear Jar!! BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  2. Oh my gosh Barb you know I know that pain, my hands take a beating and seems I am always doing something BAD to them!!

    bless your heart, throbbing is nice way to put it. LOL on that swear jar!! mine would of been full by the time that was over with.

    Big Hugs hope it feels all better soon!!


  3. Ouch indeed Barb! Doesn't sound pleasant at all. Well here's to your finger getting better, will... not to soon, not having to do dishes sounds great. lol Take care of yourself and watch out for those darn microwaves!

  4. Oh, Barb, I am so sorry about your sounds very painful! I'll be praying that it will heal quickly so you can get to your orders. Take care.

  5. Yikes,oh the pain! I'm so sorry you are dealing with this! Nap a lot and take those meds!

  6. Oh no! OUCH!! Goodness sakes, that hurt my finger just reading about it! We don't realize how much we take for granted until it's taken away from us... it's gonna be a long few days for you girl! Take it easy and try not to do too much.

  7. Barb,

    Ouch is right! You really need to figure out a less painful way to get out of doing the dishes! Hope your finger heals fast.


  8. OMG! That must hurt so bad, Barb. I got
    squeamish just imagining it. The good
    part is no dish washing. I don't know
    how you're going to paint, though...

  9. Ouch! I think you and Brenda over at the Rusty Thimble are in competition for finger injuries! Heal soon! ~*~Lisa

  10. Just reading this post....OUCH!!!! Well, that's one way of getting out of doing dishes. Hope it heals fast!!

  11. Oh no! You're not a hand model, but you could have your hands insured, because you are an artist and need them for your profession, including nursing.
    I know practioners gotta start somewhere, but OMGosh the pain they can cause us. I've had a few just learning how to find a vein... ouchie!

  12. Ooooh, I am sitting here cringing just thinking about what you are going through. Hope it heals quickly. I don't know what's worse, the pain, or not being able to do anything.

  13. Oh Yikes! I know that has to be truly painful. Sending healing thoughts and prayers your way.


Thanks for taking the time to share your commments!!
Enjoy your day,
