FRIDAY UPDATE: Rainy Days and Mondays don't get me down (it's raining now), but the snow forecasted for tomorrow is not a pleasant thought for our scheduled soccer game and track meet (believe it or not, I used to run sprints in high school). Doesn't Mother Nature realize it's May already?! The goodie bag that Market Leverage sent me will come in handy.
MICE UPDATE: I made a friend of mine go with me (yes, I was too chicken to do it alone) to check out the cable box supposedly full of mice in my backyard. But the box was locked. He kicked the box and threw down a tool acting like it was mouse to see my reaction. He seemed to think it was quite funny that I jumped and screamed. And although I never actually saw any mice, I dumped out instant mashed potatoes all around, and put traps in my garage. I'll really scream if I catch anything.
EYE UPDATE: I had my eye doctor appointment today. I told him I haven't been driving at night because my vision is so poor. He basically said I should be not driving during the day either, as my eyes have gotten that bad! Yes, I'm one of those drivers that gives 40-county a bad name. So, I'm scheduled for a Lasik eye enhancement surgery next month, on Friday the 13th. Good thing I'm not superstitious. Tarot cards don't count.
The doctor said a lot people in their mid-thirties start to lose their close up vision and need reading glasses. But a study has shown that people in their mid-thirties who spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen (definitely me), are becoming more near-sighted. So, I'm just having surgery on my dominant eye, cuz if I have both done, I may lose my ability to see close up. Hope I get some Valium or something, as I remember last time being nervous that a cart would crash causing my eyes to twitch while being lasered and totally effing up my vision.
IMPERTINENT UPDATE: I saw this graphic on one of my MySpace friend's page that I can totally relate to. I'll type out the words as it is a bit blurry to read (or maybe it's just my dilated eyes)…
I want a guy who calls me beautiful instead of hot. Who calls me back when I hang up on him accident or not. Who will stay awake just to watch me sleep. A guy who will kiss me on the forehead and shows me off to the world. Who will hold my hand in front of his friends. A guy who thinks I'm pretty with or without make up. The one who is constantly reminding me of how much he cares about me and how lucky he is to have me.
I think I'll add that to my Date Requirement List. Along with Punctuality. Is it too much to ask to call if you're gonna be late?
I was gonna link to the Trisha Walsh Smith Video where she bashed her soon-to-be Ex-husband, but it “has been removed by the user.” My ex should be glad youtube wasn't around when we got divorced.
