Saturdays and Staples
As anyone who works Saturdays knows when you get to finally have one off, it is a big celebration and there are usually a million things to do. Last Saturday I had one of those rare days until Maggie came screaming up the stairs that her head was really bleeding and yes it really was. Once we got the matted hair away from the most bloody area we (Jay and I) both shook are heads and said yes it needed stitches. This resulted in another blood curdling scream and we were off to Primary's. On the way up while I was trying to console her, I said " Hey it's ok we haven't had to make a trip up here in almost two years(no wildly infected cat scratches or hatchett cuts or anything)". Her response was, "I was trying to make it three." After a record setting hour and a half she had three staples in the back of her head and we were on our way home. Not bad for a Saturday. I still had time to feel guilty about not doing anything on my Saturday off. I took some pictures but my printer is on strike so I can't load them. I'll try to update later.
