I did my cranberry/tangerine relish yesterday.

Today is usually prep day.

BUT there is a water line break somewhere in my neighborhood. Which means the water is coming out VERY slow and I don't really trust using it. The water will probably eventually be turned off for HOURS!!

All I have done is my relish.

I didn't want to be up all night but I guess I will be.

I think I would go out and buy several gallons of bottled water, just in case.

Darn the luck, msmofet! Hope they're able to fix it quickly! Bottled water is probably a good idea.

Bummer MsM. I would probably buy bottled water, if it happened to me.

I have a splint on it to help the pain of me bumpiong my finger on stuff .. any idea how many times a day your finger bumps things .. the answer is a LOT LOL So there is my petty vrent for the day whixh should hold me until well passed then end of the year.
Aw geez MrsLMB! Hope you heal quick. Maybe you could just point to what you need done with that bandaged finger and get someone else to do the work? Maybe steaks on the grill for Thanksgiving? Some turkey somewhere will be grateful.

LOL CG I'm not allowed to finger point as someone in my house can't see well enough to know which finger I am pointing with

Hope you have a great turkey day CG !!!

I know I wasn't the least bit jealous about MrsLMB's finger, but I managed to cut mine pretty bad while slicing shallots for Thanksgiving dinner. I haven't seen Himself move so fast since I said "I think my water broke" years ago. I've been sporting 2 bandaids all day and haven't looked at my finger yet. I cleaned it, applied pressure, and raised my hand up all in a matter of about 2 minutes after the "OWWWWW" and I'm guessing my boo-boo is minor league compared to the Mrs's. And yes, typing is a bee-och but I really hate typos.

People must have really been cooking with band-aids and stitches involved

Oh nooooooooooooooooooooo ... ah geez CG .. that's no good at all. I'm glad you got to forgo the visit to the emergency room.

Good on you for being so good with typing.

How is it feeling now? Hope you get better super quick ! Mine is coming along quite nicely. I am no longer wearing the splint thingy and my bandaid no longer looks like a catcher's mitt - it's a normal bandaid now !

Yeah and we need some cool bandaids ... maybe some with little toasters or pots and pans on them

Well, I should have driven my car home from BIL's. DH said he'd drive, and while he was messing around with the visor, he couldn't figure it out as he didn't have his bifocals....When I tried to help, he accidently took the skin off my thumb by slamming it in the visor. Luckily, not too much blood.

Thankfully, the cooking had already been finished.

Perhaps we need a support group for the finger-injured.
