Old Lady Eyes

I have 20/20 vision. I can read an eye chart all the way to the last line. A couple of years ago my opthamologist told me that by the age of 42 I would need readers. Bingo. I just broke down and bought a pair. Actually 3 pairs. The lowest they had was +1.50. They give me a headache but at least I can read tiny print on pill bottles and such. I still don't need them for actual reading. I can still read books, magazines and newpapers ok. But I don't think that will last much longer. I hate getting old!

Another Party!

Brain Fart

For some reason, I thought today was Father's Day! Just ignore my previous post and come back and read it next week! :-)

Happy Father's Day

Every single time that this commercial runs on TV, I am transported back to when I was a kid. I didn't know why. It was kind of a Déjà vu type of thing, but I couldn't put my finger on it. I asked my girls if this is a new song. Or if it's an old song. Or maybe a remake. They didn't know.

I finally remembered to google it. I find out that it is an old song. Almost as old as me. A song called Tuesday Afternoon by The Moody Blues that I heard quite a bit when I was just a toddler because my dad would listen to it frequently. This one and Nights in White Satin.

I don't think that I have heard Tuesday Afternoon since I was a kid and the commercial just triggered a memory.

It always amazes me how a song can take you back. Whether you realize it or not. With some songs, I can even remember a day, a place or what I was wearing. This is from someone who sometimes can't remember what I did the day before!

So this song takes me back to my dad. A dad that I only had for 14 years, 5 months and 9 days. A dad that I managed to learn a great deal from in the short time that I did have him. A dad that lived and breathed for us. A dad who was rich beyond words but not in the monetary sense. A dad that had a gazillion friends that loved and admired him for the person that he was. A dad that set the standard for the qualities that I would later look for in a husband. He would be happy to know that my girls have that type of dad. Just like him.

How fitting is it that the commercial is about a girl and her dad?

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads!

I strayed!

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that I LOVE Target. About 3 or 4 times a year, I cheat and enter another big box retailer. The funny thing is, that I really do not like that other retailer at all! But when they double coupons up to TWO dollars, I can't restrain myself. So today, I dragged D to (gasp) K-mart and got myself $110 worth of stuff for $35! Yay me!

What a gossip!

I told my deepest, darkest secrets to a friend. She then goes off and blabs it to the world! She even posted a video online. Since it's already out there, I will share it on here. If you listen closely, you will even figure out the juiciest secret of all! I'm so embarrassed!

I thought that the video was embeded. I guess it's not working. If you wan't to see it go here
