Ow

My poor body is taking a beating lately. Today, it was my left thumb. I broke the nail on it at the library today - not an uncommon occurrence, in spite of keeping my nails very short. It was no big deal at that point.

Then, when I was peeling carrots for dinner tonight, I decided to peel that same nail. I peeled down to the bed on almost half the nail. It's wrapped up in a bandaid, due to the slightly heavy bleeding, and it hurts like hell. I've been icing it on and off all night which helps. But it's going to have to stay wrapped up for a few weeks while the nail grows back.
