One Day I Will Rule the World

World Domination, Babies and Middle Eastern Dance

August 19, 2012



Sunday morning, darning rips in my sheets.

I’m feeling very domestic, and farm-wifey, and frugal and sustainable.

Also, recollecting my pattern of work when I sustainably and frugally darned my sock-heels as a teenager, I should probably soak up this virtuous feeling while I’ve got it. I am not likely to do this more than once ever again in my life.

    It’s all fun and games until someone pokes their eye with a beading needle.

  2. Sigh. Yep. You’ll be happy to know that other than a killer headache throughout my eye-socket, right sinus, right temple and ear, I seem to be back to normal.

    I’d forgotten I even blogged this. And now I’m thinking it’s definitely good I reveled in the feeling of virtue while I had it. After jabbing myself in the eye, I threw down that sheet in the corner as I ran up to the bathroom to check on my eye and I doubt I’ll even be able to contemplate picking it up again for a couple of weeks.

    Oh well. At least I’d finished saving one sheet before all the drama.

    Well, watch it carefully for signs of infection. You know that, of course. This is definitely one of those incidents that makes me cringe whenever I think about it.

    Who would expect to injure themselves darning sheets?
