Wire wrapped Nautilus

My muse has gone from disappeared to overdrive! I forced myself to sit down and start creating jewelry yesterday. Not only did I finish that bracelet I had on hold for 2 weeks, but I also created this wire wrapped nautilus pendant. Who knows what I'll create today. I think my muse has returned!

New Bracelet!

Well, Keith of is doing a 365 day art project. IN other words, he's creating a new art project every day for a year.
He has inspired me, and I don't know if I'll finish something every day, but I'd like to try. Today I finished a bracelet I had been putting off finishing for two weeks. I feel good about this accomplishment! :)

There was a bird trapped in our attic

We have no idea how he got there. My daughter was outside and walked by the window and saw him frantically flying from window to window to try to get out.
We went up there to open a window, and that's when we found out they're all nailed shut. Did I mention we live in a 200 year old house?
I was on my way to go get a hammer when my daughter said she was going to try to catch him. She was able to and walked down the steep attic stairs with him clutching her fingers, and took out to the front porch and let him go.
I couldn't of done it! I panicked when he flew to the window I was at and he got caught in my hair a little.

Backwards Thyroid

My thyroid has been underactive for 10 years. I've been on varying levels of synthroid during that time. Well, the first two years my doctor put put me on unithroid which really didn't work.
For the past 6 months or so, I was getting symptoms of overactive without realizing it. I went to the doctor, she lowered my dose, but I was still getting symptoms of overactive so I stopped taking it. She fussed me out, put me back on meds, and now I'm heart racy, nervous, jittery, crying, and my leg muscles are so weak and wobbly I can't walk at times.
She sent me for a thyroid ultrasound yesterday, after visiting her, but I can't get to the endocrinologist for 2 weeks, because there is only one in my small area. In the meantime, she wants me to stay on the synthroid, and I can't. It's making my symptoms much worse. Even though I'm reading low now, my symptoms scream high, other than the 35 pounds I've gained in 6 months...
Just want some sympathy! /sniff
