Pinching ones thumb in the doorjam to ones room both requires a lot of talent and sets a very bad tone for the rest of the day. It also leaves one grumpy and prone to meltdowns, especially when a certain two year old decides to throw things at Mommy's sore thumb. Then one might have a meltdown.
Later, after apologizing for said meltdown, ones husband might decide that his wife REALLY REALLY REALLY needs to get out of the house. So this wonderful man might ask his parents if they would babysit and his equally wonderful parents might agree. In the end, one still has a very sore thumb and may very well lose the nail, but one feels much more human again. *happy sigh*
