Anywho...as I posted previously, Jacob was the recipient of a GINORMOUS nerf dart gun. Well. The other night, Doug was messing around (as usual....seriously, I have 2 children), and shooting Jacob, and Jacob was shooting back. I was clear across the room cleaning my trach. Now, cleaning my trach requires the sticking of Q-tips into the trach tube to clean it out. Yup.
So I glance up at the
Well I might as well have said "fire when ready", because he PULLED THE TRIGGER, and a nerf dart flew 20 feet and nailed me right in the neck. About 1/2 inch from my trach. Oh. My. Gosh. I was ready to bludgeon him. It left a mark and everything. Ug.
Then, two days ago I was trying to make this gorgeous necklace by gluing a bead cap/bail on the end of a smoky quartz tumbled rock that we tumbled and polished ourselves...It was going to be SO beautiful. Well, the first step requires gluing in a headpin to make a loop for the chain to go through so you can make a necklace. (Think of a very thin long straight pin.) So I put the glue in there, put the headpin in, and all of the sudden, I've got 3 fingers stuck together. And I mean STUCK.
Doug and Jacob were gone, so it was just me and the dogs. I couldn't really call anyone for help because I only had one hand....can't hold the phone, dial, talk, etc. with just one hand. So I used about 1/2 bottle of nail polish remover because I had no idea where the paint thinner was, and I was determined to fix this myself. Mmmm-hm.
About 30 minutes later, half stoned from acetone fumes, I am finally free from the dreaded headpin and have all my digits, including all their skin! I still had superglue on my fingertips though (briefly concluded that if I committed a crime that day I wouldn't leave fingerprints....) but there again, like I have the cajones to commit a crime. I'd probably pee my pants. Wait, I do that anyway with the MG...
Anywho. About 17 washes and scrubs with Lava soap and I was mostly glue free. And so it goes....
What have YOU been up to??
