So last night my toe was having issues, it basically wouldn’t stop leaking blood. Band-aids were pointless because the pressure of them just caused it to bleed and soak the band-aid. I couldn’t go to bed with it uncovered as I risked destroying the sheets should it bleed everywhere. I settled on a liquid bandage, which did the trick.
Unfortunately I learned today this might not have been the best idea. The liquid bandage, shall we say, trapped everything in the toe. Needless to say when I removed the liquid bandage and applied a bit of pressure to nail, a fountain of blood erupted from my toe. It was nasty as you can imagine. I had considered taking a picture of my toe and posting it, but I think I’ve disgusted you as is.
Tomorrow I am calling the doctor in the morning to make sure I don’t need to be worried about infection and fungus setting in. I’m sure they’ll want me to come in. My friend Shannan has already prepared me for the worst, if they think the nail will fall off eventually they will want to pull it out . . . . with pliers! Just kill me now.
I did not clean any rooms in the house today. I took the day off. I shall recommence with the cleaning of the downstairs guest bedroom tomorrow, followed by the living room areas and finally the upstairs guest bedroom. Before Keith comes this weekend I’ll do a final vacuum and swiffer the floors. All should be clean by then. Oh I’ve forgotten the bathroom, damn!
In other news, the giant tree spiders have returned. Every year in the late summer early fall the house is set upon by these giant spiders. They especially like coming out after storms or on humid nights. They spin these giant webs in the trees around the house, which make walking the dogs oh so fun should you walk into one of them. These webs reach from the lowest tree branches to the ground, it’s insane. Right now one has spun a web across the entire front steps of the porch between the openings of the porch railing. I shall try and photograph them if I get a chance.
