No Skin

I managed to twist off the skin on my thumb today doing quarterly maintenance on the hottub.

I was trying to remove all 39 jets from the hot tub shell so I could clean and do maintenance on them as well and two of them would not come off. I even put on rubber gloves to try to get some better grip.

It didn't start to hurt until later when I was doing dishes and trying to make dinner. Somehow, no matter how I hurt myself, it ends up being the one thing I use the most...how is that possible?

It seems that each day I am being able to get a few things done off my list since school has been over, and that has been gratifying even if a bit painful...

Ugh! Those types of injuries are the worst! And I always seem to be cooking something with lemon immediately to enhance the pain to the umpteenth level!

I do that at the start of every gardening season. I feel your skinless pain!
