Starting the New Year off Right

 This year has started off great if not hilariously. Yesterday I was cutting up some old t-shirts to make a quilt. I was using Libby's rotary blade and cutting board and in a moment of recklessness my finger got sliced. It took the fingernail too. I didn't think that it was a big deal so I bandaged it and went back to cutting, and making sure to be careful and keep my hands out of the path of the blade. Mom, of course, was freaking out about it and asked to see it. When she saw it she said it was time to go to InstaCare. When at InstaCare they told me that I had only capped my finger, I had completely removed the epidermis and had nicked the dermis.
 So I didn't get any stitches because there was nothing to stitch. What I got was a Tetanus shot and a couple of numbing shots in my finger and this beautiful, big, purple bandage.
It's really a stupid story, but quite hilarious if you ask me. But most of all it was a great way to start the New Year.

Now lets go over my New Years Resolutions:
  • Graduate from SUU, which is happening in May if anyone wants to come, I'm sure ya'll be there to see Libby get hers, but don't forget that I'm also graduating.
  • Travel outside of the U.S. I'm planning on doing a London Study abroad in May in England and Scotland.
  • Start my Career. In June I'll be moving in with my friend and I'm hoping that I will be able to get a job at the new Dixie College library. If not I will have Tuacahn to turn to for a while.
  • Watch less TV and movies and read A LOT more. I love to read but netflix cab definitely waste lots of time.
 That's all for now. I hope everyone has a great year full of fun and plenty of achievements.

I tried calling you at midnight to see how you were doing. I should've told you to BE CAREFUL WITH THE BLADE!!! Well, as I student teach a sewing class this semester I will use your finger as example of WHAT NOT TO DO!!!!

Great Resolutions. I'm jealous you get to go to London...but I hope things work out so I can go to Europe with Libby Sr. :)

Don't worry I pulled away before any blood was spilled on your precious blade. I can't believe you would be more worried about your blade than your own sister ;) The t-shirts are safe as well, if you're worried ;)

Well, rotary blades are kind of expensive...That huge bandage really makes it look like you did serious damage to your finger.

Great resolutions! I hope they all turn out even better than you anticipate!
