Good morning friends! I ended up with a day a home yesterday due to the weather... no school AND I had to cancel my WW meeting again. Nice to have a day relaxing at home, but if I don't work, I don't get paid! Today is a 2 hour delay for school, so I'll be heading in about 9:30 am (I'm working in the office this week so I want to get there early)..... and it looks like tomorrow will be another snow day.... and probably another cancelled WW meeting!
So Sunday I was coming upstairs with a fresh hot cup of tea in my hand and I tripped on the stairs and ended up splashing my face and arm with the scalding hot tea.... burned myself pretty well, I must say. I immediately put cool water and then ice on it (apparently ice isn't recommended, but I didn't know that). I kept a cold washcloth on my face for about the next 3 hours.... it hurt really bad. I was finally able to get past the pain and put some aloe gel on it and go to sleep. Didn't really look at it when I got up to shower, but apparently it blistered during the night and I broke the blisters when I washed my face and hair. The blisters have continued to develop and break and ooze (sounds delightful, right?). Woke up today with a swollen eyelid (there is a blister on it) and will probably end up skipping most of my make-up today. I'm sure it will heal over time, but for now it is really icky. I was so concerned about my face that after the first few minutes I forgot about my arm and of course, the burn there is still nice and red.... but at least it didn't blister much.
Sorry.... that was just a lament and rant and desperate desire for some sympathy.... nothing to do with our subject here!
Lots and LOTS of crazy weather going on around the country.... tornadoes, flooding, snowstorms... you name it! Praying that everyone is safe! I need to get my breakfast and get ready for work.... I'll try to pop on during the day today!........P
I hope it gets better quickly. That sounds awful. From the first aid classes I had to take when I worked at the daycare , cold water or ice on a burn can turn the burn into frost bit without you knowing. I had to yell at my husband about a week ago when he burnt his had cooking. He put ice on it too even after I told him not too.
