You know how there are those days when you start out good, you’re looking forward to something and then something else comes along to mess it all up? Well I had that kind of day a couple of weeks ago. I was looking forward to a magic crayon creation class, however while I was setting up a patron came in complaining that they were dizzy. The long and the short of it is that I managed to get them to the floor before they had what appeared to be a petite mal seizure that they recovered instantly from, and I have what is either a shifted bone in my wrist or a mild sprain. The doctors cannot agree which it is. It also turns out that it takes about 3-6 months to heal from a sprain. Yay, I’m in a brace until about March and we now have several new policies at the library.
I told you that to tell you this, I will not be doing much knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, or crafting in general until my wrist is out of the brace. Fortunately for me, writing in my bullet journal is a one handed activity, it was my left wrist ( I am right handed) and the fingers are free so I can do washi tapes and such. I am also going to use this time to consolidate my stash and get my house in something resembling order.
Frankly, I am a bit angry but I cannot be too sad about this. The outcome could have been so much worse, the person that fell into me is very solid, however I am solid enough that they did not knock me over like they may have some of my more petite colleagues. I could have been hurt much worse, there might have been bystander injuries, and so many other scenarios. I’m teaching a class on creating a metal tree of life, I have a colleague that has volunteered to help, and the entire experience should be fun.
I also believe that I have some serious chances at a full-time job in the new year. This is going to be a good opportunity for me to adjust my priorities and figure out what I want to be doing without the distraction of…well fun. Remember to Live Life a Little More Abstract!
