So, I had a really rough morning today. I woke up at the crack of dawn to make spaghetti for our friends Jennifer and Mark, since they just had a baby and that’s what you do (plus, something tells me they’re a little too busy to cook right now!). While opening a can of tomato sauce, I cut my finger pretty badly and was bleeding everywhere, for 25 minutes. Chad was alseep (he stayed over), so I woke him up to see if he would open the rest of the cans of sauce, since I couldn’t use my left hand at the moment.
Bless his heart, he was really groggy. He didn’t understand why I needed him to help me (apparently the “I’m bleeding profusely” comment didn’t sink in), so he was cranky (his word, not mine). Somehow, the can of tomato sauce exploded all over him, the kitchen counter, the window, the floor and everything else within a 3-foot radius. Lovely. Chad was covered in tomato sauce from head to toe, as was my kitchen. I couldn’t help but laugh at our misfortune.
So, we got everything cleaned up and Chad finally noticed the blood soaked paper towels around my left index finger. He was like OH MY GOD WE NEED TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL AND GET YOU STITCHES! After assuring him it was just a puncture wound in a place that has my pulse racing through it, we got a band-aid and Chad went blissfully back to sleep.
After getting everything finally ready to go, I was out the door. Without my coffee. SIGH. And of course, because of all the ruckus, it was too late for me to stop at Starbucks or any other coffee shop. WAH WAH.
Of course, there are 9,000 things going on at work, including the huge major gigantic super important debut of our company’s new internal newsletter – something I’ve been working on for MONTHS. Needless to say, my fuse was short today, so when my co-worker sneezed 800 times in a row, I snapped at her. Sorry, Tara.
However, the day has picked up since then, and I’m very much looking forward to the weekend! Chad and I are going to see Mark and Jennifer’s new baby tonight, and Lindsay will be here tomorrow afternoon for a weekend full of BESTIE time. LOVE!!!!!
