{Today's Letters}

Tuesday, January 22, 2013


Dear Husband, yesterday we made an offer on a house. One word: HOLLYSH%TBALLS. Ps- love you more than a 105 year old creaky hardwoods. Dear Monday Nights, making hand thrown mugs, check. Bean Boots for easy cleaning, check. Dixie cup full of cab, check. You are quickly becoming the highlight of my week. Dear River, you now have 7 stitches and get to wear a lampshade on your head. Pretty sure you're the cutest pup I've ever seen. Dear Timothy James, FREEEEEEEDOM! So proud of you for finishing up your last ER shift in Dallas. Praying for tight lines as you fish your way to Kentucky!

Happy Tuesday, brave ones! Have you ever had stitches before? I'm convinced it's a right of passage. Kind of like your first armpit hair or first speeding ticket.

I have only had stitches from surgery, not from any cool stories. Though it's pretty impressive that someone as clumsy as me has survived this long with out them. Knock on wood...

This is one of your best letters!! I'm seriously so proud of you--you put an offer on a ballin house, you took care of your sweet pup at 6am, you sling clay like nobody's business, & you make the best sweet pots I've ever tasted EVER!

I got stitches in 4th grade when my older brother hit me in the head with a golf club (accidentally). Ouch!

Stitches are a right of passage...I have had them 3 times (2 accidents and 1 surgery). I have also had lots of staples - although I do not recommend :) Congrats on the house buying process...that made me so sick with both excitement and nervousness!

First and last stiches: five of them when I was a seven year old in Togo, W. Africa. A glass Coke bottle jumped from our little refrigerator and the rest is history... But I can't tell you how many times I have watched my Dr. Dad stitch one of us (or himself!) up on the kitchen table! :)

My first stitches were at 3- I bonked my chin on a toy that was floating in the pool. I got two stitches, and I was very proud. Then, two months before my wedding, I had a ice machine incident and cut my nose (on the bridge, right between my eyes)... so I had a lovely, still-healing scar on my wedding day. Sigh.

Learning to throw pottery has been something I've been wanting to do for years and your pictures and videos are inspiring me! I refer to it as one of my 'accessible life goals' since it's something that is totally possible for me to learn and not at all unrealistic. Thank you for sharing your experiences!

I got stitches in 3rd grade. Our demon pup bit my cheek and I needed 26 stitches! Yikes! People are always shocked when I tell them because my scars are very faint...I had a great doctor stitching me up!

I've never had stitches - I nearly had to have them when I cracked open my head on a window at school when I was about 11. My bestie and me had a massive falling out the day before and we'd made up - I ducked under a window but didn't duck far enough and came up catching my head on the window. My head bled everywhere! My white school shirt was a nice shade of pink :(

Most of the times I've been to A&E is to take other people. Once was in the back of a police car - now that was the funny point in the not so nice day.

Loerkes! Exciting news today...love it! Praying for you to be in your biscuit in your very own home ASAP!

I admit that I have escaped most escapades without stitches...except for the two times I proudly wore them after my c-sections (and I think those were staples!)

Blessings upon blessing to all 3 of you!!

oh no what happened to River?? Hope he is ok!!

yes, I had stitches in my leg from falling through the draw bridge in the school play ground playing Gladiators when I was 10 y-o. Now i live with a pretty cool scar! :)

About 2 years ago I dropped a bread knife, and it cut my big toe wide open. Had to get a few stitches. Such a weird story--seems surreal now.
