Be Careful Washing dishes

Wow. It has been a while since I have posted here. Busy!! But I wanted to drop in a quickie to say be very careful washing glass cups by hand. Especially the cheap crap we are forced to buy (unless we look higher and lower than ever before - hard to do out here in the rural areas) from China.

I won't be buying anymore cheap crap from China anyway. I'm sick of it. Another story for another day but suffice it to say I threw away (or at least designated them for a different use) all these cheap crap drinking glasses. Probably will be used for candles or something. I can't seem to throw anything away. But they will NOT be used as drinking glasses. And actually, now that I think about it, they might be too cheap to even have a candle sitting in them. Ok, maybe out on the deck only. Sheesh.

Why? Because while I'm washing one it breaks in my hands. Just like that. And just like that I'm in the process of scrubbing and it cut the holy heck out of my hand. I thought my whole thumb was severed off. Scared the bejabbers out of me. What a stupid and so unnecessary accident. >:(

I had to go to the emergency room (thanks to a sweet heart neighbor) to get sewn up. 4 stitches (probably should have been 5) I can't do dishes and can barely type. Amazing how much your wound and actually the whole area aches after something like that. Weird.

But that really was stupid. And of course it's the one day my husband has to drive to work and I don't have the car. See how weird this can get if you are not careful? LOL.

Anyway, it is prudent to be as careful as you can when living way out in the rurals like we do. Stupid and fully unexpected accidents can and do happen.

Will hopefully be posting some of our newest goings on that I have been unable to get to these last few weeks. Lots to share!

My hand is sore, enough typing for now.
