Folding bed sheets

You know what’s not fun? Smashing your hand and breaking your nail off in the middle of the nail bed. It looks something like this after it’s bandaged:

I managed to do this while getting frustrated with attempting to fold a fitted bed sheet. I’ve never actually folded one before at all. I’ve just crumpled them in a ball, or left them to sit in my desk chair until it was time to use them again. This time I was determined to fold them properly!

It took me I think 1 entire hour to actually get it done, along with the matching flat sheet and pillowcases. Here is the final result (this picture is more pink than the sheets really are):

Looks good, right? Well, the stack is about twice as large as the packages these come in, and it didn’t quite fit all the way on the shelf, the way it should have. I followed some Youtube tutorials, but I’m not sure if they were meant for twin sheets instead of queen or king. I’ll try folding them a bit differently next time and see if it comes out the right size. Maybe I’ll even take some photos or videos along the way so that I’m able to repeat it later! But this is still better than crumpled in a ball, right?

After my fit of rage at the sheet’s lack of cooperation, and my resulting injury, dinner was simple. Delicious, nutritious, frozen fish sticks! With gummy, medium-grain rice. I guess that’s a risotto rice? I thought risotto rice was short grain rice. In any case, it was gummier than I would enjoy, but it was ok. At least it featured homemade tartar sauce!

As I was writing this, Chopstick started eating some tape off of a box, which is one of her all-time favorite activities and “foods”. She kept making crazy faces as she chewed up the tape, here is the best shot I could get from across the room:
