Because I needed a kick in the head...

I've been meaning to get a post up about the FABULOUS reading I went to for Pat Wood's Lottery. (Post coming soon!)

However... I was putting my two year old to bed that night...
and she tends to thrash...
and she kicked me in the eye...
and I saw a bright flash of light...
and then for two days everything looked like I'd uploaded it to my Photoshop program and clicked "negative".

Finally, I called a doctor and apparently you can dislodge the insides of your eyeball, thus tugging on your retina, and making the whole world purple and gold. (Great if you're a UW Husky - not so great if you're trying to type).

Fortunately, I don't need laser surgery. You can all breathe a collective sigh of relief for me! I'd much rather go through labor (which I'm of course going to do soon) than have surgery on my eye. I can't even put in a contact lens! But I have to watch it for the next little while. Any jolt to the head could tear the retina. Sadly, this is going to have to limit the aggressive vacuuming I've been doing. So sad....

Thank you for the good thoughts everyone - it worked! The eye is healing! Apparently that cleaning vacation did the trick. ;)
