All week long I have continually either forgot to do something or forgot something. I have felt out of whack all week. When this happens, I really feel like I've been in outerspace or something...lol Yesterday at Collin's class we walk in and they're painting shirts. Okay, I don't remember anyone mentioning to bring a shirt this week! I searched my brain because usually I'm not this bad at remembering, but it came to me that no one did tell me to bring a shirt. Okay, so now I didn't feel so bad. Collin wants nothing to do with the arts & crafts part of the class anyway. WHAT, I say??? Are you my child??? All kids and especially my Marisa love arts & crafts. Not Collin :( Give him a train, plane, car, or anything else that goes fast and he's in heaven.
This week has been Lutheran Schools week at Marisa's school. Each day has been some new way to dress. I have forgotten to take pictures of the last two days because of course we have run late. Today is dress like the 50's. Oh, she was so darn mad that I didn't have poodle skirt for her to wear. Oh, yeah, sure Marisa we'll just go out and buy one or better yet I'll sew one for you --- UH NOOOOOO!! I made her wear a pair of jean capris that had a rolled up cuff, a white shirt with a cute little scarf around her neck and a high ponie with a scarf around that. Maybe she won't be all
dirty after school and I'll get her to pose for me -- that won't be a problem..lol
Guess what? I had to go for an eye exam last week because my eyes, especially the right one was turning pink and itching and burning. I knew it wasn't pink eye because first off there was no gook oozing out (yuk!) and it would come and go. So off to the eye place where the doctor proceeds to do an eye exam. I didn't go for that but what the hey my insurance covers one exam a year free. Guess what he tells me? Yep, I need glasses. I have an astigmatism in both eyes. Oh, I'm feeling old!! My eyes are now failing me, too!!! The itchy pink eye is from my eyes drying out -- what I kind of figured! This happened to me last year, too.
So my insurance covers one pair of glasses a year, but of course they want me to get a pair of reading glasses too. She starts rambling off this and that and I say WHOA!!! Wait a minute! How much is this going to cost me? $200 more dollars in addition to what the insurance is covering and that's just for one pair. Uh, no, just give me the plain-jane glasses please. I don't know if I will wear them anyway. I'll get the reading glasses from the dollar store...lol
Why is it when you get glasses they take a while to get used to? I feel more awkward and out of balance with these things on, but I do notice they help with reading the computer screen.
Well, enough of my ramblings. Here's a layout I did for a journaling challenge at my beloved Just4Keeps. It was a Q&A style of journaling. This layout is way out of my norm, but that's what the paper called for I believe. It's the new BG Urban Couture -- really pretty flowing stuff! Can you believe Marisa took this picture of me? Well, I did crop it and touch it up using Photo Shop. I even printed this on my printer -- I can't believe it printed so well! I don't really have a mole on my upper lip. I think something was on the scanner bed. I had to laugh when I saw that!
