Hallelujah for fickle kids.
Booalujah for moms that have to put up with them.
*Kirk met me at the eye doctor this afternoon. Both of us were WAY overdue for our eye exams. I got the lecture from the doc about wearing my contacts too long. It's the same speech I get every time I see him. But, he doesn't get me. I leave my laundry in the washer until it sours, I leave the dishes in the dishwasher because I hate unloading it, and my family's dressers and closets are purely decorative because we live out of laundry baskets and suitcases that don't get unpacked. So why would he think that I would change out my contacts regularly? And he has a medical degree. Ha.
*I did get some awesome new glasses though. Like super cute glasses. I went for trendy....probably not the smartest idea ever...but I just couldn't resist brown and white stripes. I wanted the turquoise and chocolate ones, but Kirk scrunched up his nose at those. And since he was dropping $800 on our visit today, I decided to spare him the extra stress. But, gosh, they were cute. Like pedicured feet in flip flops cute.
*Kirk got new glasses, too. The glasses lady informed him that his face wasn't made for glasses. I'm not sure how you are supposed to take a comment like that. I don't think he took it very well, because he didn't find all my "Dog" jokes funny when he ended up with a pair from the Randy Jackson line of eyewear. Party pooper. I should have gotten the turquoise glasses.
*I think that I might be the only person in the blogosphere that is not a fan of the Google Reader. (Except for Lori....she agreed with me!) I get that the Reader is all about ease and speed and blah blah blah. BUT....it feels all sterile and operating roomish to me. Too white. Way too white. I like your headers. And your sidebars. And your cutesy fonts and colors. Some of you paid good money for those blog layouts....so, by golly, they should be seen. So...blog friends, know that I am a traveler to your actual site every day. Sometimes several times a day. Because I like seeing you....outside of the Google.
*Tomorrow night is Girls' Night Out!! Woo Hoo! I'm in much need of an estrogen fix. Don't know what we're going to do, and don't care. As long as no boys are invited or present.
*I'm still knee-deep in Darcy love. And I'm swooning. But not over the weird illustrations that are in my book. Because they make Mr. Darcy look like a very ugly transsexual. And there is nothing swoon-worthy about that. *I am dumping my stuff in a yard sale next weekend. Steph, Lisa, and I (along with some others) are pawning our junk off on others once again! I'm all for ridding my house of old crocheted placemats and the funky presents that are too weird to regift.....but, I despise getting ready for them. I can't stand cleaning out toy boxes, sorting through old clothes, and digging in the attic for out-dated Christmas decorations. It makes me nauseous just thinking about it. But so goes my schedule for tomorrow. Ick. That and the twelvity thousand loads of laundry that are taking over my laundry room. I can't even see my washer anymore, because it is hiding behind a large pile of dirty towels that I'm thinking may actually eat the children if left for one more day. I need a Tums.
*I've got another give-away up my sleeve. Because I'm a giver. And I had so much darn fun the last time, it is so time to do it again! But this time it is bigger. And better. Stay tuned....
So, I'm off to go to sleep. Just to wake up extra early in the morning. Wide eyed and bushy tailed. Only because it is the one day that I can sleep in.
Because so goes my life.
