Nick left and I took off my wedding band

We’ve been married for thirty-four years and in all that time I’ve never once taken off my wedding band. It’s had to come off a time or two for surgery, but Nick’s always removed it and put it back on.


So why would I take it off myself after all this time? Because Nick’s not here to take care of me this weekend. He’s golfing and I managed to spill scalding broth on my hand. I was right by the sink and started running cold water over it at once. It wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been, but I was worried that there would be swelling so I very reluctantly removed my ring. I kept the cool water flowing for a long time. It’s red, but there hasn’t been much swelling and no blistering.

It’s not been my best two days. Thursday, I broke a tooth, and of course my dentist is on vacation. He’s supposed to be back Tuesday, so I hope I can get in then. I’m going to be very careful the rest of the weekend. Sitting quietly reading or writing sounds good.

If it’s hot where you are you should stay in and read. For those who have never read a Cassie book, I have a snippet up from the first book up over at the Reading Room.

PK! Don't scare us like that. Take it easy and no paper cuts while you sit there quietly reading. ;) Amy

Oh gosh PK, you have been in the wars, poor you! Use some burn cream just in case, even if it looks ok. I hope you can get straight into the dentist. Take care!

PK,
I was not worried from reading the title of this post. That man adores you. I guess I will just worry about you when Nick leaves town.

This sounds like another good reason for you to stay out of the kitchen. Also sounds like a damn good reason to eat a big bowl of Ben and Jerry's.

Hugs From Ella

PK, I hope the scalded finger is healing well and you're having a quiet weekend. Ella's suggestion sounds a good idea!

So far so good on the fingers. Could have been really bad if I'd been too far from water. I'm hoping to hear from the dentist tomorrow.

I'm about ready to see Nick for sure.

Fingers and hand seem fine, I put my ring back on.

The kitchen has never been my room and I doubt that will ever change.

You have suggested what I do best. I'll take your advice.

Ice cream, reading and writing - now that's a good weekend.

Hi PK! :) I'm sorry that you had such a tough week! I hope that your burn is on the mend. How those can hurt!!! I hope that you were a very good girl this weekend, and stayed quiet and out of trouble! Ice cream sounded like an excellent idea! I bet that you were glad to see Nick home! Hope that you get a swift appointment at the dentist this week. Feel good! Many hugs,

<3 Katie
