Attacked by the Glue Gun Monster

Last night was a craft extravaganza at my house.  I was working on some Valentine decorations for the house.  Logan was working on his valentine box for school.  And Jack just had to make a valentine box too just like Bubba.

Everything went downhill when I was attacked by the dreaded Glue Gun Monster.  I was wrapping fabric around a heart shaped wreath form and that fabric got a hold of a hunk of hot glue and wrapped itself around my hand.  I did the "I'm burning my flesh off" dance over to the sink and put it under some water.

Man that sucker hurt for the longest time, and I think I have a pretty high pain tolerance.  I sprayed some Dermoplast on there and took some Advil and went to bed to sleep off the pain.  Today I'm rewarded with big nasty blister on the side of my middle finger.  The crazy part is that I'm still itching to finish that project but I'm a little gun shy(pun intended).  So we'll see if Mike can pull it off for me tonight...with my excellent tutalage of course.
