...to keep yourself from crying.
I laugh at myself a lot.
Especially today, when I managed to walk around the grocery store for over an hour with a rip in the back side of my jeans. Kiddo was kind enough to point it out to me when we got home, and I checked in the mirror and discovered my backside hanging out.
*Attention HEB shoppers!*
Ah well, like I said, sometimes you just have to laugh.
Port took a tumble out of a chair last night and managed to wind up under my office chair. He skinned up a knuckle, bit a hole in his bottom lip and busted his chin wide open. So, I guess this is going to be his first real scar. He still has a little one where Kiddo nailed him on the forehead with a rock, but that is covered by hair. This cut is about a quarter of an inch long and just under his chin. Thankfully it shouldn't be too noticeable. Kiddo was a little short of 2 years old when he busted his face open for the first time. He still has a scar under his right eye from it.
I did learn a great tip from a surgeon friend of mine - super glue. According to him, your common, every day generic super glue is the same as the dermabond they use in the ER. It would have worked perfectly, except Hubby was gone on a photo shoot and there was no way I was able to hold Port still while I glued his face. After gluing myself to the tube and then the tube to something else, I gave up. But next time, and there *will* be a next time I am sure, I will be prepared.
So today it is pretty crusted over and he won't let me anywhere near it. So I guess it's just going to have to heal that way. Oh well.
Something has been wrong with my left eye today too. It feels like something is in there, but I don't think there is. It must be scratched somewhere. It has been hurting and watering and going blurry off and on throughout the day.
Tonight I had a senior session that actually went pretty well. I was afraid that my day's bad luck would follow me, but thankfully there were no big snags. I thought we might miss out on the railroad tracks I wanted to use, because the access road was closed off for a few minutes, and we did ultimately miss the sunset, but we still got to use the tracks. So I am ok with that.
One big highlight of the day - the grande peppermint mocha frappuccino I got at Starbucks. Oh yeah.
