Thanks for all the well wishes on the hand. I have to say, when Guy wrote that post for me the other night, I was laying on the couch with him, hand wrapped in ice, crying my little eyes out. It was hours past the incident, and I could still feel my hand burning whenever I took the cold away from it.

I just knew I would have blisters on every fingertip, all down the insides of my fingers, and spread across my palm. This would be bad for anyone, but I was thinking as a pianist. A pianist with upcoming, well paying, scheduled over a year ago, gigs.

The next morning, I woke up after a not so great night's sleep. I stripped off the glove that Guy had put my hand in after slathering it with aloe and squinted at the hand to survey the damage.

Nothing.

Not one blister.

There were red spots and tenderness. I couldn't wash my hair or do dishes or anything else that made it come into contact with heat, but for all practical purposes, my hand was fine.

So this turns into yet another post where you have to hear me talk about how amazingly fantastic Guy is, and how I'm the luckiest woman in the world.

Sorry about that. What's true is true. Annoying as it may be.

I'll be back later today with more talk about boobs. Because it's the second most annoying thing I won't shut up about.

I'm so glad the burn wasn't that bad.

Blame the thoughts on the hormones. What good is pregnancy if it can't be an excuse? ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Clifford DATE:Thursday, September 27, 2007 at 3:05:00 PM EDT I think there's a strong need for more testosterone in your blog, C. This "sweetest guy" stuff is way too sensitive. How about "it's great that my hand isn't as burned. Now I can spike the football after our nightly family game of tackle, plus hold my own beer while doing so." I'd then like some intuitive commentary on the pros and cons of the new Monday Night Football crew, such as whether Jaws or Theismann did the chalkboard graphics better. Better yet, how many elbows to the face it'd take for Tony Kornheiser to shut his piehole.

Talk about boobs is always okay, though. Unless it involves best places to buy bras and then it's no good. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Jennifer, Playgroups Are No Place For Children DATE:Thursday, September 27, 2007 at 3:12:00 PM EDT Guy sounds pretty terrific!

Glad your hand was blister-free. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Kathy's Surprise Party DATE:Thursday, September 27, 2007 at 4:07:00 PM EDT Yay. Glad you are better and seemingly recovered from the burn. I won't go there about the boots. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous WhyMommy DATE:Thursday, September 27, 2007 at 5:51:00 PM EDT Whoo-hoo! So glad you're better today! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Candygirlflies DATE:Thursday, September 27, 2007 at 7:27:00 PM EDT Yay!! So glad you're better! I was about to start emailing you ice cream recipes...

That caring husband of yours must be a fantastic father, too... Your s-daughter and Little Bird are certainly luuuucky to have the two of you for parents!

I'm doing the boob-talk thing over at my blog today, too!

i didn't know you were a pianist...? ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous gail DATE:Thursday, September 27, 2007 at 9:51:00 PM EDT Boobs are fun, right? ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Heather, Queen of Shake Shake DATE:Friday, September 28, 2007 at 6:12:00 AM EDT I'm glad no blisters!

What a great Guy! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Lisa DATE:Friday, September 28, 2007 at 1:08:00 PM EDT Oh my gosh, your hubby is SO SWEET for posting for you. And so happy to hear that the burn is healing fast.

As for the favorite shoe store... Think of the mark-downs. Think of the "but these are dear shoes will soon be homeless. Can't we give them a forever HOME, Guy?" You might get away with buying a bunch of pairs as a result! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous slackermommy DATE:Friday, September 28, 2007 at 1:37:00 PM EDT I think it's very sweet. We should all love our guys as much as you love your Guy. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Ally DATE:Saturday, September 29, 2007 at 11:16:00 PM EDT Hooray that your hand is better. Glad you can still play piano. ----- --------
