It's Friday! I missed this last week, and this week I really, truly need to re-focus on my contentment quest, so I'm with VikLit of Scribblings of an Aspiring Author in this inspiring hop. These are so fun to read. Happy posts. Grateful people. I highly recommend joining.
I FINALLY GOT NEW GLASSES!
I've been needing new glasses for four years, as in the ones that I use for emergencies, since I wear contacts, and then reading glasses, were four prescriptions ago. I just really couldn't see with them anymore.
These are the best though. (Nice mug, eh?) These are bifocal reading glasses. Picture this. You're a writer. You're looking at your notes, or are texting on your cell phone, etc. Close up. Strong reading glasses. Then you glance up at your computer. Blurry. Switch to reading glasses that are three levels less strong to see computer. Repeat all day. Totally annoying, but necessary. UNLESS, you have these magic glasses which are tuned for BOTH computer and reading. No more switching! Bliss.
OYT MADE DINNER
I called his bluff. He didn't want what I said we were having, so I flippantly said, "Well then YOU make dinner!" He said, "Ok, can I make chicken nuggets, mashed potatoes and my favorite veggie mix?" Totally surprised mom. "Um, sure." I ended up taking my work into the kitchen and giving advice, but he did it all! He's no stranger to the kitchen since he's an excellent baker, but he's never made a whole meal. Add to that the friend he had over was staying for dinner, so extra pressure. It was great! (OYT is Our Youngest Teen, 14, for all you new followers! Hi! I appreciate you!)
I GET TO MEET A BLOGGING FRIEND NEXT WEEK!
I get to meet AJ of Naturally Sweet! She was my minion during last year's A-Z Challenge, and this year she's a co-host. She's going to be in my town for work and we're going out for coffee! It will be the first time I meet a friend I met online. I'm so excited!
What are you celebrating this week?
