I NEARLY DIED - and other wild exaggerations

Today is Saturday.  I nearly didn't see Saturday this week.  As you can tell from my title, I nearly died this week.  As you can also probably tell from my title, that isn't exactly true!

It all started on a peaceful Friday afternoon.  I was putting fabric and ribbon on my walls (more about that later) when all of a sudden, out of no where, a ream of black card attacked me and cut my finger open!!
Ok so it wasn't peaceful, but the rest of the story is true!  I got the WORST paper cut on my thumb yesterday.  I wont show you a pic, because this is a G rated blog, and well, blood and guts are gross.  But really, think 10 pieces of thick card, all slicing down the side of your thumbnail, and you have the worst papercut known to man.  It bled everywhere and kept me awake most of the night with throbbing pain!!

I don't actually have any other wild exaggerations, but I will make up 4 more, just so I can link up with Doodle Bugs 5 for Friday.  

2 - I saved MILLIONS of dollars in the shops today.  I went to have a look around my favourite places, and didn't buy anything!! Well that last part isn't quite true, but I did leave pretty much everything I wanted in the store!  Go me.  Chalk that one up to self control.  I did get this super cute each bag (that I'm pretty sure will be my teacher bag this year) for a mere $7!!  AWESOME.  You American's have totally converted me to liking chevron by the way.

3 - My class is taking FOREVER to set up.  That isn't an exaggeration.  It really is.  No pictures yet though, I will do a reveal post this time next week.

4 - I can't remember how to plan.  Only slightly an exaggeration.  6 weeks of no planning and I feel like a beginning teacher again!! How does this work again?

5 - I have a million and one things on my to do list before school starts on the 3rd of Feb.  Again, only a slight exaggeration.  If anything, an understatement!

Might take a nap now, my thumb is hurting again.  Hopefully it doesn't fall off in my sleep!!

  1. Paper cuts are SO painful. Yours sounds ten times worse than normal. Hope it gets better soon!

  2. My daughter would love your bag! Too bad about your cut. If it's throbbing it probably needs some sort of antibacterial ointment. Hope it gets better soon. : )

  3. This sounds like a post I would write:). Too funny! Sorry about your monster paper cut! They are the worst.

  4. Paper cuts and stubbed toes are the WORST pains and such minor incidents. You have my sympathy! Also... I love that bag!!!

  5. Hope your cut is feeling better!! Beware of the chevron addiction ;)
