Had a bad day

Did you ever have a day that wasn't going so well, and you couldn't really put your finger on what was wrong until the end of the day, when you finally figured it out?

Yesterday was one of those days.

I just wasn't feeling right all day: kind of logy and tired, couldn't concentrate, couldn't really get anything done in spite of the fact that my husband and son were out of the house most of the day.

Around 6 pm, I started to make dinner. I defrosted some chicken, and was cutting it with a knife, exactly as I'd done 1000 times before.... and I cut my thumb. Pretty bad. Pretty deep. Was bleeding pretty bad. After a while, got the bleeding to stop. Finished making dinner.

Suffice to say we had an after-dinner visit to the local ER, where the doc there washed my "laceration" and put it back together with glue. It's really not that bad, but I'm feeling pretty annoyed with myself,and sorry for myself. And I'm favoring my other hand, and finding it hard to do things that I usually do. Poor me.

Ouch, I feel for you! I'm klutzy and have cut myself a "few" times :) Once I was busy pruning in the garden, with shears and nearly cut the tip of my baby finger right off.
I also know the feeling of being in sort of a twilight zone, just a bit out of it. Maybe that's our body's way of getting some away time from a busy life.
Next time you feel that way, order dinner in and relax in a bubble bath. :)
