Yeah, so who knew that freak-falling mahogany lamps shaped like a pineapple could be so painful? I know now. Last night when I was at my in-laws we were looking at pictures on their computer. All of a sudden it felt like someone had come up behind me and swung something extremely hard over the top of my head. I screamed. I thought something crashed through the window and was attacking me! It was a lamp. Not just any ordinary lamp, mind you. A heavy wooden lamp. I felt the poky “skin” indent my head and my brain felt rattled. My head hurt so much, and yet we were laughing. Laughing at the craziness of such a strange mishap, and at the probability of a pineapple lamp falling on one’s head. I did worry that I had a concussion when I started getting tired, and my left ear was ringing, but didn’t know whether that was because it was approaching 10pm. I had to drive home and thankfully talked to Matthew on the phone the whole way. I feel fine this morning. We’ll laugh about it soon!
In other news, we recently had a fun family gathering. Here’s just a nugget of the cuteness that afternoon!
Then, earlier this week we went creek rambling with my sister and friend and all our kids for a grand total count of 13 children.
I made enough pasta salad for a small army. Unfortunately the small army never showed, and the salad is still in my fridge!
We found an amazingly fun spot to play for a couple hours. The rocks became ships, the woods great lands undiscovered.
