I'm pretty sure...

I'm pretty sure I managed to give myself a concussion yesterday. How did I do that? Well, I was over at my parents house, using their computer, and I had put my flash drive in their computer tower which is under the desk. We were getting ready to take off to run errands, so I bent over to pull out my jump drive, and smacked my head hard enough that I thought for a moment I was seeing stars! Tears sprang instantly to my eyes and I doubled over with my hand pressed tight to my head.

The general consensus is that the result was a concussion, considering I was dizzy, sick to my stomach, and had blurred vision, all on top of a blinding headache, I'd say it's probably a good guess. There's a reason why my family calls me the queen of klutzes, and my brother says that my super-hero power is the ability to hurt myself in new and entertaining ways... My husband certainly kept laughing the mental image of my banging my head against the table like a headbanger at a rock concert!

Despite the massive headache I still managed to get some beading done last night! I'm currently working on weaving my project for the November Team BDC challenge. Obviously, I'm running a bit late, but I'm determined to catch up! I'm having a lot of fun with the project. I took a pattern I was already comfortable with, and adjusted played with it based on a necklace I saw once. So far - it's working! I can't wait to see how it looks when it's done :) No previews of the project I'm working on, you'll just have to wait to see the final project! I'm so mean aren't I? I was going to show you a picture of my new workspace, but I completely forgot to snap a picture of it before I left the house. So instead I'll leave you with a picture and link to a piece of jewelry by Lauren, of The ChainMaille Lady. Tune in to http://blockheadradiolive.com Thursday at 12pm EST to hear her live interview!

Sorry to hear about your headbanging experience. Trouble with hubby's theory is that there are other things at a rock concert to make the headbanging not hurt so bad! Anyway, can't wait to see what you create!

And if you're like me... it still didn't knock any sense into ya :) I banged my noggin pretty good on the dresser last week so I sympathize. What a clumsy pair we make!

Can't wait to see what you've been working on!

OUCH! we match...but you got it much worse than me...I skipped the nausea - trunk of my car, wasn't all the way up when I stood up after loading.
SO can we be like a super hero duo? Klutz Girl and Stumble Sister? We can start a league.
