Freak Flag Fridays

Yes, it's Saturday and I'm writing my Freak Flag Friday post now. I've been looking forward to writing this post all week, but as you know life can be messy and throw you a curve ball.

On Tuesday my husband got a bad concussion when he slipped and fell on the ice while out running. He couldn't remember how he got home (about 20 minutes of lost time)! He's not been himself since and the doc assures us this is normal. The CT scan looks fine, but it's really odd to have someone you know not seem like themselves. He looks like a lost little boy most of the time even though he's trooping off to work.

Our brains are at once so delicate and resilient.

On Monday I was excited about Friday, but then Friday arrived and I was so discombobulated by the week that I couldn't get the post done. So here I am on Saturday night writing while my husband is asleep and the kids are watching a movie.

Next Friday I'll explain how Freak Flag Friday came about - I promise.

I hope you have a good weekend.


  1. I didn't know it was so serious! I completely understand how that is--having someone you love not be themselves. My dad had a stroke in August and he's never been and never will be the same again. Lucky for you that's not the case!

  2. Gosh, that's a huge loss Katie. I can't imagine how disorienting and sad it must be to see your father as a completely different man. How wonderful that he is still with you though. I did wonder if he had a stroke from your pictures of him on IG with an eye patch on. Thanks for your comments. Good to hear from you.
