Seriously, I am the one who has always prided herself in being able to maneuver safely through this entire house in the dark. I always knew where I was and never hit one stick of furniture. Gleefully walking with such a sense of pride, I always found the door way on first try, never stubbed my toes, always found what I needed in the dark, well, those days seem to be over.
Has the Earth's axis tilted or are there gremlins in my house moving things just enough to make me run into them??
My poor second toe has really suffered. It is not longer than my first but does seem to stick out a lot recently. It can fit under tables that have no under, it finds all doors and items that were not there in the daylight. For the health of this poor digit I need to center my dark universe once again or at least figure out where the light switch is.
I am in the country, there are no street lights, no night lights and man, when you turn the lights out it is truly dark.
I go by feel in the dark of night and by memory. I guess this is some misplaced sense of protecting those who live with me. If I do not need a light then I will not jerk them out of a sound sleep by turning on an atomic emergency beacon right in their faces.
Tonight I thought I was doing better. I spot the digital clock and I am able to know the location of every piece in the room in relationship to the clock...NOT! Well, not any more anyway. Tonight the toe was spared and my right eye met with the corner of something rather sharply. I remember thinking, shit, that hurt! Even with that said I still did not know where I was!
Any one know where I can get radar installed?
