    Hey, Jay!!

    How are you?


    Yep, tried Nexcare bandages. Tried paper tape, tried everything. Nothing works.

    AC cetainly is having fun at my expense today.

    Yeah, I'm bummed about the tattoo. These things happen, I guess.

    We finally have a great warmish day! No jacket required, so I'm doing pretty good.

    Hey, Lil! I'm doing good, all things considered. Thanks!

    That sucks that nothing works. What do you do if you cut yourself? Just... bleed all over the place?

    Yep. Sometimes shit happens.

    Jay. I wrap gauze around the wound and then secure the gauze to itself with medical tape. If possible.

    Or yeah, bleed everywhere.

    After surgery last April, I had four incisions that were closed with "butterfly" bandages. I could not remove them (they would fall off once the wound had healed). Worst. Thing. EVER!!

    The worst are Opsite and other surgical dressings. I usually warn people they're signing up for a free Brazilian waxing at the end.

    Ugh! That sounds like no fun at all.

    When I was in the hospital last year, I had to negotiate with the nursing staff for them to allow ME to take the dressings around the IV line off myself. I had them snip the dressing so they could remove the line, and then I carefully got the dressing off my skin by myself - otherwise my arm would have been a hell of a mess.

    I had special signs in my room and on my ID bracelet and a big sticker on my gown so they wouldn't put anything adhesive on my while I was unconscious after surgery. Lol

    Good evening, reppers. The first day of spring was certainly a busy one for me. I'm beat and sore!

    Lil - sorry to hear about your son's breakup. Trust me, I know all too well how much they suck. The best way I dealt with it was to distract myself with socializing, but everyone is different. Also, sorry about the cancelled tat appointment. I really want to see the finished product.

    LadyV - I feel your pain. When you work with plants, spring is always uber-busy!

    Is very jealous. I so need a new chair for my desk. Soon. I've been promised. Soon, I can have a new chair!

    Great to hear that you're doing awesome with the writing too!

    I'm on my last scene with the UF. Hoping to get it finished today. Then I'll let it rest for a few days before going over the whole thing once prior to sending it to my lovely beta.

    Did my exercise today too! Just about to go up on the treadmill for a bit. How's your exercising going?

    Um. Does eating count as exercise?

    Maybe I'll do something before bed? Dunno.

    Congrats on the writing!

    LOL No, I don't think eating counts as exercise.

    I do my 'floor' exercises as soon as I get up, because I know if it put it off until later, I won't do it. Also, I can't exercise after I've eaten cause it makes me want to puke. I try to treadmill before I have lunch.

    Thanks! We'll see if I actually get it finished today - I am making dinner today too.

    Editing is good too. Keeps the brain thinking words.

    I gotta have my dinner by 6pm at the latest, or I don't eat.
