WOYWW #3 - It's All in the Details

Another week already? Just glad the last one has passed! Last week Little Man had a concussion and I was rear-ended in a parking lot. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt in either incident. Both victims suffered a few bumps. lol

(If you're looking for the WOYWW pictures scroll down! What's WOYWW? Check it out HERE!)

I had just arrived at work when I received a call from the school nurse. She informed me that Little Man had had an accident on the playground before school. She had checked him and thought he was fine, so she sent him to class. Not long after his teacher sent him back to the nurse telling her that he was not himself. She asked me to pick him up.

When I arrived, he was not the Bonnie Boy that grandma had so aptly nicknamed. He seemed kind of woozy and complained of a headache. There were no bumps, just a small abrasion on his scalp. He didn't show any signs that seemed like red flags, so I figured a day of just hanging out might do the trick.

As the day progressed Little Man complained that his headache was getting worse and he still didn't seem quite right. I decided to pick up the girls and take him in just to be sure.

I did the usual and parked in the queue at the school in the parking lot. The kids had just gotten in the car when I noticed the guy behind me starting to back up. No problem. People leave the queue as they pick up their kids. Well, it wasn't a problem until I heard the crunch and my car rocked!

The guy got out of his car and came over to the window. I asked him how bad the damage was and he said, "It's really just a scratch."

I got out to see for myself. Uh...yeah, it's a little bit more than a scratch. We exchanged info and then I called my insurance company, completely clueless about what to do next. (Love the agents at USAA. Every agent I spoke to was helpful!)

Finally got to the hospital and the doc ordered a cat scan. Little Man was pretty content at this point watching Transformers while we waited. The medical staff was great! Little Man asked the tech that came to get him what a cat scan was and I heard her explaining what they were going to do as they wheeled him out the door.

When Little Man came back he was super excited! After the scan, they allowed him to see all the pictures on the computer and explained to him what they told the doctor (and that he was fine)...and then they told him he could even get copies of the scans!

I'm thinking that those scans blown up as wall art would make great bedroom decor for a budding scientist...edited, of course, with some labels and definitions...

No pictures of the boy, but here's what the guy that hit me said was a bit of a scratch...

Hmmm...I'm no expert, but that didn't look like a scratch!

Okay, enough about last's my desk this week. Working on a few things.

The flowers and lace are for some classes that I will be teaching at Simple Pleasures in the next few months. Stop by the store February 4th to see the samples!

The box was a great end of holiday find! Hobby Lobby was having a 90% off all Christmas sale, so I stopped by and found a great deal on these boxes! Originally 14.99...I picked up 12 boxes for just over the price of one! I'm thinking this will be a fall class. Maybe box and album...maybe Twilight themed? The box is resting on Tim Holtz's Foundations - great feet for anything with corners! The ideas are rolling...

Hoping to have some time to post pictures of actual finished projects soon...

This has been quite the if you're still reading you deserve another picture of the puppy!

Say hello to Lil' Dude and Box of Rocks (names have been changed to protect the innocent...) Doesn't Lil' Dude look like he's pouting? He probably is! He wouldn't stay still long enough to take a picture with Box of Rocks, so we had to snag him for a quick picture!

Happy hugs!

  5. Yeah that's not a scratch. I realise it's not life threatening but don't you hate it when they play it down. So glad that your boy is OK, he must have taken quite a hit huh! Your desk looks fab, love the talk of ideas rolling around - what about the red frame - that looks great - don't tell me it's intrinsic to the box?!
