The Day After - aka Day of Awesome  
So, the day after WW, I had a very eventful and mostly good day.

It started with going into work to face my GIANT pile of work and emails, but happily, one of those emails was from the Feds, telling me that my 2012 Formulary had finally passed the approval process and had conditional approval. Of course, that was immediately followed by a message saying I was now eligible for an update window, so now I need to address the variety of changes and additions since I constructed the formulary in February and get THOSE changes approved, but hey, it's a start and a good one.

A few hours later, I got a call from the ER doc in Boscobel - it seems that my index finger IS broken. He had the "OMG. don't sue me" voice, but I wasn't really upset, just dug out the splint again. I needed to sand the edges, though, since it had actually cut my middle finger while at WW... That had been sort of a shock - On Friday, I had covered the splint with a piece of white fabric to hide the modern splint, but at one point I looked down to find it bloody. o.O Apparently part of the side was sharp and sliced open the finger next to the one it was protecting. *sigh* Anyway, I can take it off for typing and such, but need to wear it/be extrasoopercareful the rest of the time - it luckily was a non-displaced fracture, but I could still damage myself if I am not careful. :P

Later in the evening, I went to dinner with gflower  at the Melting Pot, a local fondue restaurant. we proceeded to have a 2.5 hour dinner and gab session, which was the perfect way to debrief after the event. The super tasty food and the ginger-lemon-rosemary drink sure as heck didn't hurt either. :D

On my way out to the car, I checked my mail to find that the online sewing contest I had entered on facebook had announced the winners and, despite my voting block all being at the event for four days, I managed to scoop up one of the second prizes and earn $100 of free linen. Happiness!

Once home, I caught up on some essentials around the house, composed some necessary emails, and called my mommy, but crashed early and hard, my car still packed with crap from the weekend, but it will wait...

In all, a very good day. :)~

Being the sort who also soldiers on in the face of possibly-damaging injuries, be prudent with that finger and don't make it worse! (Am currently recovering from something myself but went back to work after two days and probably ought not to have been that dumb.)

And if you'd like a recipe for rosemary lemonade, I just made some that came out well.
