What I realized from this whole experience, was that I really need my thumb. I couldn't turn on or off the lights in my car with my left hand. I had to reach over with my right hand to do it. And even now as I type this post, the difficulty is phenomenal. I have no idea how I am going to do my hair tomorrow, that is the hand I hold the curling brush in. As soon as it heals, I am going to be so grateful for my thumb. (Please feel free to use this message in your next talk)

You Don't Know What You Got Until It's Gone
You go about your day as usual, taking for granted how easy some things come. Then BAM!! It's not so easy anymore. I now know how it feels. Tonight I suffered a severe trauma. I was at mutual. We were doing humanitarian stuff....quilting, making hair ties, and this coloring packet thing. All very important. I started out at the quilting station, but after about the 10th time I pricked my precious fingers, I made the decision to move to another location. (I was just glad Edward wasn't around) So, on I went over to the hair tie station. I had to take these plastic flowers, and hot glue rubber bands and ribbon onto it. Simple enough... I thought the glue gun was out of glue, it wasn't coming out so fast. So I began to put in a new stick, but then some super hot glue dropped out onto my thumb. The pain was excruciating (Morgan's all know what I mean) I immediately pulled off the glue, only it wasn't glue, it was my skin that had melted from the heat. I tried to suffer through the pain, but alas I could no longer. I made a trip to Wal-Greens (sorry I forgot the trivia game, I had other things on my mind) and I got some first aid necessities. As you can clearly see from the picture, it is pretty serious.
