This is the pinky on my left hand. It has four stitches in it and you do not want to know the gory details. Suffice it to say that I am glad my neighbor was home and could put multiple bandaids on my finger. Unfortunately, it was not enough.
I was hoping not to have to go to the urgent care place a few blocks away because I was expecting the service person to fix my leaking ice machine to arrive between 1 and 4 this afternoon and it was already after 1:00. Alas, I had to go. The good news is that my neighbor was able to let in the service guy, who then called me on my cell while I was waiting for the stitches. By the time all was well and I got home, the service guy was long gone but I could not get into my driveway because the roofing people had parked in front of my driveway, blocking it. Don't even ask about that.
My neighbor told me that the GE guy ordered 2 parts and will be back next Friday, but that he heard gurgling in the drain and I needed to call a plumber to check that out. oh, joy. THEN she said that my carpet in the basement was soaked, so down I went. Indeed!
A little spot of water damage to the ceiling but the whole carpet wet. Called the insurance company. I need the mold prevention guys with fans here. Am waiting for a call from the adjuster. The plumber can wait till Monday, when my brother from Pittsburgh and his brood arrive to stay. Uh - the downstairs guest room is soaked. Sigh...
Can't wait to see what the rest of the almost-over day brings. I had planned to spend today working at home. So much for THAT!
I am left dominant, although there are some things I cannot do with my left and can only do with my right hand. Using knife and scissors are the top two. I also drink/dial the phone (or whatever you call it these days) and iron. Go figure. I am a crackerjack typist, at least 80 wpm -- but today, I am typing using my left index finger instead of my pinky, so there might be typos.
Maybe I should order takeout tonight. I was going to cook, but not while my finger is in pain and I can't get it wet. I don't have anything I can even microwave -- so I might as well call Athena's Greek Kitchen and relax.
RELAX?? What is that? I was planning to spend the day in the dye studio tomorrow - uh - nope. never a dull moment. I think I will read tonight and let the chips fall where they may, which they will do, anyway.
