Exciting 1st day & 3 stitches later ...

Well, like I mentioned earlier we have arrived in BC. I can't think of a better way to start off our time here than a visit to the medi centre!!
It wasn't the kids though ... it was me!!

I was doing laundry and had a load of towels to wash. I bent down to pick up the pile of towels but as I came up (with full force too!) my head hit the corner of the wall on the wainscoating (it juts out) and I sliced my head open in 2 places. I didn't know that I had cut myself ... I was just sitting there holding my head in the towel moaning 'cause it hurt so badly. My dad finally heard me and what I did. He looked at my head and quickly said "oh yes" you're bleeding!! I quietly freaked for a brief moment - especially when I looked in the mirror and saw my hair was all covered in blood!!!
I didn't realize at the time that I had been cut in 2 places until I was getting stitches. Oh well, what's life without a bit of excitement huh? So 3 stitches later I'm doing ok. Just taking it easy today.

I want to say a big congrats to my friend and fellow DT'er for Canadian Scrapbooker, Kathy Thompson, because she is now on the American Crafts Design Team. I'm so excited for because they are such a perfect fit!! (I'd add links but I'm on a different computer right now and it'll take me some time to figure it out - so I'm just being lazy.)

I think that's it for exciting news and updates. Have a great weekend.

  2. OUCH!! Cari, that sounds nasty!! Glad you got there safely and thanks so much for the congrats, you're too sweet :)

  3. Oh no, Cari! That sounds awful! I hope you didn't have too bad of a headache afterwards. YIKES!

    And I agree, Kathy is such a perfect fit for AC! I can't wait to see all the awesome things she does with their goodies!

  4. Oh Cari, I am so sorry! That's a rough way to start out! I hope you are feeling better soon. :)
