Didn't know I was so blind?!

Just picked up the new lenses in my old frames. Bifocals! When did I get old enough for these? I was shocked at how much clearer distance was but HOLY COW, they make me dizzy! It is going to take some getting used to. John gets his eyes checked tomorrow. He was trying on glasses tonight so he would know which to order. (BIG SMILE RIGHT NOW!) He has a rather large head and apparently a crooked face. They all looked lopsided on him. BOY, am I going to hear about this little entry!

Juls was down today but I did not get to see her. She called me a couple of times and had to laugh over the fact she knew what that ring sounded like and how inappropriate it is in most situations. I really need to turn my phone down at work. Alrighty then, time to call it a night! Catch you all later!

My alarm clock.

Bright and early, at 6:45am this little critter came and jumped up on my bed (the couch). Dad spent the morning catching up on some zzzz's with miss Ruby! Aren't they cute?! I have too many photos to deal with. Good times go to fast!

Rules for Home

I am once again trying to find my table. Tessa had another of her jewels laying there. Just random words written on paper. She called it Rules for home and here is what she thinks they are. For every half hour I do chores: that is 45 minutes of computer, video games, friends, DS.

And, if I do chores for 2 hours in one DAY... I get i sleepover! (in the summer) These are her words NOT mine.

She did not have school today and everytime I saw her she was in her pj's on the computer. GRRR! Her dad will be home with her while I work for part of the day. I am hoping the weather does NOT mess up our plans. Everyone have a HAPPY EASTER!

While looking at the ground

The past two days while walking home from work for lunch, I have found little treasures. I have to assume that someone lost a bit of cash sometime during the winter and the snow blower or something found it. Yesterday, I found one complete very dirty dollar bill. Today I found this chewed up partial. Can my life get anymore boring? Just kidding!

March 16, 2008

Apparently the Gerber Daisy that Alicia gave me three years ago has 4 blooms on it right now. John has the photo and I am shocked. I usually think it is on it's last legs, but for some reason it is doing well. I will be so relieved when I can put them all outside once it warms up.

Tessa played at a friends house all afternoon and is happy that she was able to eat Mac and Cheese instead of my Corned Beef and Cabbage. I do NOT understand her taste buds. I enjoy this quiet afternoon so much. I could sit and cross stitch, while sitting in the sun. The only bad thing was that I was so lost in my music I did NOT notice John and that Darn Camera AGAIN! He was standing there grinning like a monkey, just a clicking away!

I usually feel bummed that a weekend goes so fast. I know that when I left work on Friday they had run out of disc space so that I could NOT index and might not be able till Tuesday. I was shown how to key in journal entries. Pretty easy! I am just sitting here minding my own business and I hear a click and a flash of light, for pete sake, do you have to take a photo of me sitting here trying to think of something to write? Time to close out, hope you all have a great week!

LET ME IN!

Max was here yesterday. This is a moment that seems to say LET ME IN! The pinkish color to the right is my reflection in the window of my backdoor. He jumps and scratches to let you know he wants in or out. He has such a sweet face.

The Other Half

John had posted a photo on Facebook that he called dueling cameras. This is from my side of that duel. He was just starting to take a few shots after removing it from the box. Do you think his hands were shaking?

Briefly

The sun popped out briefly Saturday about noon, and melted the snow off the deck before it hid again. Nakita had to be out with me. There are 2 steps under all the snow she is standing on.

Something I am going to regret

John has been busy taking photos to see how different settings work. So basically just messing around. I made the mistake and as soon as I did, I knew I would regret it. When will I ever learn to NOT make faces at people holding cameras? Brenna has this photo of me that I soo hate but it is quite funny. John just captured another one like that. He just sent it to me and now I live in fear he will post it. Tessa is threatening to post if he doesn't. TIme to relax and enjoy an evening at home. What about you?

Ole of Duluth

I was sent this while at work today, I have to say I could not help but laugh out loud. I sent it on to John and he shared it with a friend that lives in New York. He had never heard an Ole joke, HOW CAN THAT BE?


A doctor in Duluth wanted to get off work and go hunting,
so he approached his assistant. "Ole, I am goin huntin tomorrow
and don't want to close the clinic. I want you to take care of
the clinic and take care of all me patients".

"Yes, sir!" answers Ole.
The doctor goes hunting and returns the following day
and asks: "So, Ole, how was your day?"

Ole told him that he took care of three patients.

"The first one had a headache so I gave him TYLENOL."

"Bravo, Mate, and the second one?" asks the doctor.

"The second one had stomach burning and I gave him
MAALOX, sir," says Ole.

"Bravo, bravo!

You're good at this and what about the third one?" asks
the doctor.

"Sir, I was sitting here and suddenly the door opens and a
woman enters. Like a flame, she undresses herself, taking
off everything including her bra and her panties and lies
down on the table and shouts:

'HELP ME! For five years I have not seen any man!"

"Tunderin' Lard Jayzus, Ole, what did you do?" he asks.

"I put drops in her eyes."

Ear Infection

Mom STOP! Some humor only!

They always ask at the doctor's office why you are here, and you have to answer in front of others what's wrong and sometimes it is embarrassing. There's nothing worse than a Doctor's Receptionist who insists that you tell her what is wrong with you in a room full of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this old guy handled it.

An 86 year old man walked into a crowded waiting room and approached the desk.... The Receptionist said, 'Yes sir, what are you seeing the Doctor for today?' 'There's something wrong with my dick', he replied.

The receptionist became irritated and said, 'you shouldn't come into a crowded waiting room and say things like that.' 'Why not, you asked me what was wrong and I told you,' he said. The Receptionist replied; 'Now you've caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and discussed the problem further with the Doctor in private.' The man replied, 'You shouldn't ask people questions in a roomful of strangers, if the answer could embarrass anyone.'

The man walked out, waited several minutes and then re-entered. The Receptionist smiled smugly and asked, 'Yes??' 'There's something wrong with my ear', he stated. The Receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice. 'And what is wrong with your ear, Sir?' 'I can't piss out of it,' he replied. The waiting room erupted in laughter. Mess with seniors and you're going to Lose!

March 5, 2008

Tessa stayed home today with a sore throat. I really think she almost enjoyed it. I was not there to chase her off the computers and she could put sugar on her cereal. I am sitting here now, feeling rather numb, tired something. This is usually the day I get to be with Alicia and Mariah over the supper hour, going to rather miss it. Hopefully John will not be working to late and we can still run out and do a couple of errands as we are out of milk! How are all of you?

All together again

This has been a really strange weekend. John covered most of what happened yesterday. I did not realize how freaked out he was when he heard that Brenna went in the ditch. I am usually the one that gets all worked up. Mariah thought that was an awfully fun roller coaster ride and wanted to do it again. HAHAHA! I guess it is a relief she will think of this as a bad memory.

Today we are hoping to look at a few dresses to get ideas for the bridesmaid. It looks like Tessa is going to be one of them. She says she can do it as long as no one makes her say anything. I guess I should be getting off here soon. The date has been set at 8-2-08 and it will be in Bismarck. I took a photo of her ring, and will get in here eventually. HAVE A GREAT DAY!
