An afternoon of firsts

Have you ever thought to yourself when someone says they had a sewing machine needle go through their finger " how the heck is that possible?" Well that's what i've always thought. But today.... it happened. I guess i should have expected it. But anyways here is a really bad picture of it. I think it only broke through my nail and part of my finger.



The thing is though, it really didn't hurt that bad. It was more of a shock than anything. So after realizing what happened i ran to the bathroom to put my finger under water. I've never been upset when i've hurt myself before. I've handled it with no problem, but for some reason i began to feel really dizzy. So i went down on my knees while still running my finger under cold water. All the while thinking about how stupid this story will be when i tell it. So the next thing i knew i was dreaming the story. It was really nice until i realized i was laying on the bathroom floor having this dream. Which means it was the first time i've ever fainted as well. I guess the two things had to happen some time, so why not have it happen in the same day, right? Sorry if i threw this story up at you. I'm still a little confused and queasy, so i'm not really thinking straight....

Now that i look at my picture, i can't really see anything worth fainting over. I've had worst. But if you can't see the damage, it's on the right side of my finger.

oh poor baby:) I mean that. I've fainted once and I've gotten my finger several times under the needle and around the foot area(one of them being the other night when we sewed togther) Consider yourself a real sewer now. AT least that's whatI tell myself when it happens:) What were you sewing????? oh, glad you didn't hit your head when you fell. Scary!

Oh Katelyn, I'm so sorry! Hope you're feeling less woozy, but make sure to milk that excuse in order to get out of doing things. "Mom, I can't do the dishes, what if I faint again??!?" That kind of thing.

Oh goodness, that must have sucked. It's a good thing that you had already gone to your knees when you fainted, so you didn't have to fall as far. I've fainted too. A few times actually, and it really does suck. (the worst was when I fainted when trying to go down stairs...) I felt really stupid when I woke up. Like, "really? did I just do that?" Anyway, I'm glad that you're ok. :)

Oh my goodness this had me laughing! I've done both and they both suck! You're really lucky you didn't hit you head I did last time and it took weeks and weeks for the swelling and tenderness to go down... (and I was sitting on the ground when I passed out) just remember that feeling and next time lay down the minute you feel it! Sorry for laughing...
