Thank you all for your lovely (and horrified) comments following my post about The Great Big Valentine’s Day Concussion of 2013.
On the one hand, I’m doing better.
On the other hand, I severely underestimated how long it takes to fully recover from a concussion.
Particularly when you add the fact that, four days after the first fall, faint, and memory lapse, I kind of maybe slightly let’s-not-dwell-on-this-for-too-long-eh? fell down part of the stairs again and, um, kind of maybe let’s-not-dwell-on-this-for-too-long-eh? fainted again. But this time, the fainting was purely the result of my absolute terror and frustration at myself, and one of my housemates was there to catch me so that I didn’t smack my head again.
It’s quite funny, really, if you think about it.
All is well, but I do need to keep making myself take it easy. Except for, you know, going to work, because I love it there and wild concussion horses couldn’t keep me away.
If you’d like to see a bit of what I’ve been up to at work this past week (when I haven’t been resting wrapped up in blankets like a sad baby llama on the couch, that is), then feel free to take a gander at the following:
9 creative indoor forts - Words cannot express the glee I felt while creating and writing this gallery of nine different indoor forts. Best. Job. Ever.
9 gluten-free (but not taste-free) desserts - A whole gallery of gluten-free (and also nut-free, dairy-free, and vegan) desserts from this very blog! The joy! The joy!
Will we ever stop needing our parents to tell us everything’s OK? – My very first piece for the Today’s Parent On Our Minds blog. Best. Job. Ever. Still.
Until next time, magical ones!
