Do You Want Ice With That?

It's been a busy weekend.

[audience] How busy was it?

Well, let's see...

I asked my doctor to burn off an unsightly wart off my left hand which then grew into this huge red and purple boil-esque thingy that hurt like...that throbbed like...it was bad and probably deserves it's own postal code (or zip code for you Americans). And has since been covered up by many many band aids.

I hit my ass on the shower facet leaving a bruise the size of a grapefruit and making it difficult to sit at the best of times. And forget about wearing a thong - it makes me look like a crack-whore whose been booty shooting heroin.

I wiped out on my kitchen floor on a slippery unknown liquid-y substance, bruising both of my knees while racing to answer the door. Was horrified that the sound of my body crashing could make such a loud sound. Am starting diet this week.

I contracted the flu and just like Vegas, it ain't pretty.

And then I forgot to wash the conditioner out of my hair while debating whether or not to call in sick to work. Realized why my hair was flat, and my scalp was itching and casting off flakes into the stratosphere.

Yes, it's going to be another one of "those" weeks.

well, at least the flu will help jumpstart the diet, right? sorry to hear about all of your less-than-graceful moments! hope you're a quick healer!

just blog surfing and wanted to let you know for future reference that instead of doing the burning thing for warts try this:
get organic apple cider vinegar
soak a piece of cotton ball in it relative to the size of the wart
place a bandaid on top of cotton ball to secure it to the wart every night until it disappears.

My 8 year old daughter had 2 warts on her hand and 3 on her foot and this got rid of all of them and they haven't reappeared yet - it is almost like it eats it away and there is no scar

just thought I would share
