No bike ride today :(

Remember last week when I broke a bottle of nail polish and glass got all over the place? I cleaned everything up really well, or so I thought.

Last night I was searching for a certain color of nail polish and couldn't find it so I dumped my whole nail polish tote onto my bed to find it. I found the polish, put everything back into the tote, painted my nails and went to bed.

I was happily sleeping at 5:00 this morning when I slid my foot down to the end of the bed and felt a sharp pain in my big toe. It was still dark but I felt my foot and it was wet with blood. I hobbled into the bathroom, turned on the light and it was like a crime scene in there. I was standing in a pool of blood and had left a trail of blood through the bedroom.

I called for Shawn and got a wet washcloth to try to clean up my foot and I could see that there was a huge gash in my toe, probably about an inch and a half long. It was bleeding like crazy and I was worried I was going to have to go get stitches, which I REALLY didn't want to do. I sat there for a bit and kept pressure on it and it eventually stopped bleeding enough that we got it all cleaned up and wrapped it with gauze. I don't think it needs stitches, thank goodness.

Shawn was a trooper at 5am scrubbing blood out of the carpet. I felt bad to get him up early on his day off, but he's always good in a crisis.

So now my big toe is wrapped in gauze and I'm skipping my bike ride today. I want to give it at least one day to heal up before I put it in a shoe or anything. I don't want it to open back up.

After we got everything cleaned up I searched around the bottom of my bed to figure out what I cut myself on, and there was a little shard of glass from the nail polish bottle. It must have fallen out of my nail polish tote last night when I dumped everything out.

So that may change our year of adventure plans today. We were going to go to the aquarium this morning. I may send Shawn and the boys without me or maybe we'll go tomorrow. We do still have the movie screen to finish up and I can probably hobble around a bit and help with that.

Stupid broken fingernail polish. Oh, well, I guess being stuck at home all day gives me more time to sit around and paint my nails, lol.
