Want to know what smart little Megan did today? Burned myself at work. Again. EXACTLY THE SAME WAY AS LAST TIME.
For those that don’t know a few months ago I burned my right hand really bad at work. Was second degree burns. I was out of work for two or more weeks. How did I do that? Brewing the iced tea. The stupid filter thing didn’t drain the water and when I pulled it out it splashed all over my hand and arm. It hurt bad. I was bawling.
Well, today the same damn thing happened. Except it was my left and luckily only a little bit hit it. And no skin came off thankfully. I went and ran it under cold water right away and after doing that for a while put some burn cream on. Shortly after I went home. When I got home put some other cream I had that I used with my other burn.
I really gotta learn not to touch that thing when it does that. It has done it a few times, but I like to be stupid. Hopefully the owner doesn’t get mad. Pretty soon they won’t let me touch that either. Honestly I don’t even want to. From now on I’ll double check if the filter thing looks full. If it is. NO TOUCH. I really hate my life sometimes. 😩
Luckily its a mildish burn. Not any marks at all, just sore there. So lucked out there. Thank God for that! 😭 I just feel so stupid…and I suppose I am with this stuff a bit.
Well, I’m back to work. 😩 Worked Friday and today so far. It went okay I guess. So didn’t miss it. 😆
They did cut hours, but that’s okay. Usually this time of year they do. And honestly I could use the break. Plus its annoying cause when I go out I have to wear a bandage while my hand/arm still heals. Just on the wrist/arm area. But it gets so sweaty and today the tape didn’t want to stay. Gonna try some velco tab that came with it instead tomorrow. But literally after I get out I rip it off. 🤪 Its sooo annoying.
Not a lot else going on. I spent half the day sleeping. I was so tired. 😴 Honestly don’t feel like doing much today. All I really did was laundry. Finally nearly caught up. Had a big pile. 😜
Probably should go to bed soon.
Should head to bed (its like 3 am), but meh. I will in a bit likely.
Been kind of bored honestly. Just been fiddling on the computer tonight. I was at least productive finally and did some chores. Finished most of my ones for the week. Just have loads of laundry to do. 😓 What happens when I put it off for…a long time. 🤣
My hand is doing much better. The redness has faded quite a bit, most of the dead skin is gone, and it doesn’t itch as much. 🙂
Today, or yesterday (take your pick) went in to work to let them know I was good to come back next week. Slight confusion there. My doctor’s note said I was out through the 4th. They thought it meant I was to come back the 4th. I think it really was supposed to be after. But they tend to word these things weird. Anyway, they asked if I wanted to work Friday. I didn’t really want to (didn’t want to till Monday), but did since I figured it was best to. Working 8 AM – 1 PM. She said after that my shedule should be normal next week, which is usually 5 AM – 1 PM. Ah well. Least its a short shift. I have been off for a long time. Since the 19th (well I did technically work that day, but that was the day I burned myself. I really only worked like 15 minutes that day 🤪). It was a nice little vacation. 😆 Just lazed about, played online, and played lots of CrossCode for the Switch (which is awesome!).
Anyway, I guess I’ll stop here. Night! 😴
