- Wedding: August 2012
To start off, I’d like to vent about my day yesterday. Now that it’s done and over with, I can reflect back and face it with some humor.
Yesterday was supposed to be a wonderful day. I ordered our marriage license on Monday and was told to pick them up on Thursday. Yay! I woke up, took my FI to work, showered, and heading downtown to pick them up at the courthouse of the new city we moved to.
I parked in a parking garage and learned that there isn’t a courthouse here, there are like, 4 courthouses. I didn’t bring the info with me as to where I needed to pick them up, as I assumed I’d enter one building and see signs directing me where to go.
I entered the first building I saw and was directed to a building a half a block away. No prob, it was a nice little walk. I entered that building, waited in line 15 minutes, and was told to head back to where I had come from, as I needed a different building.
When I finally found the right building, I picked up our marriage lisence (woo hoo!) and headed back to my car.
As I was walking, a stone flipped up into my sandal and I stepped down on it, causing my heel to GUSH BLOOD (slight exaggeration, but seriously, there was so much blood it was leaking over the side of my sandal). Despite the other errands I needed to run, I decided to head home.
Traffic was crazy, so instead of taking a left out of the parking garage, I took a right thinking I could drive a block and turn the way I needed, except that there were no roads to turn down, they were all dead ends. I ended up getting lost (I don’t have a GPS or smart phone), called my bff (who lives 2.5 hours away), and thank goodness, she google-mapped where I was and directed me home.
Upon returning home, I went to open our closet (which has these stupid, tiny shallow holes to put your finger in to slide open), stuck my thumb in the hole, tugged to slide the door, and it was stuck on something. My thumbnail just about came off.
WHICH is where my question comes in: My thumbnail ripped, horizontally, half way down my nail to the center of the nail (yeah, ouch). I tried painting over it with polish to strengthen it, since I can’t just clip it that far down, but it hasn’t worked. I’m trying super-glue now, but it’s uncomfortable and ugly. Do you happen to have any other suggestions (other than just leaving a band-aid on it) to keep it from snagging on things and ripping the rest of the way off?
Thanks for bearing with me. Needed to get that hilariously awful day off my chest. 😉
