Friday Fragments - Stuff

Mommy's Idea

Don't forget to check out the home of glorious Fragments( Mrs. 4444)

*****
My glasses broke yesterday. Not just the screw part - the plastic elbow.

Has anyone ever caught that "Twilight Zone" where the earth was pretty much crumbling and a librarian, who had been in the bowels of the shelves in the building while this was happening - came out to discover that no one was alive - except him. And that was all he needed - himself and all those books. And then he tripped, his glasses fell off and they shattered. The world became a huge blur.

Sing it with me: "Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo"... Yeah, deep doo-doo's.

That's what I felt like.

I krazy glued it, but now am a little concerned. I don't have a spare (except an old pair of "Mrs. Beasley" looking vintage, which are pretty beat up by chlorine from swimming lessons with the kids), and only about 3 pairs of disposable contacts left.

I've been putting off going to the optometrist (well, not putting it off, just couldn't find the time and didn't want to admit that I couldn't really see too close or too far anymore...DANG the small text on children's medication!!!), but now I can't.

I need new glasses, and fast. I can't afford a twilight zone moment after next week when I'm travelling again.

Doo-doo-doo-doo...

*****

Costco is evil. I said it before, and I'll say it again.

Does a family of 4 really need this:



to finish off in 3 days? 15 for the price of a dozen?

Apparently yes.

8 microwaved seconds to paradise each and every time.

*****

Why, it's a soccer-game free weekend - yippeee!!!! Only Sunday, Monday, Wednesday practice this week. Rejoice, (well, until Friday when it's back to back with Saturday).

Those Rum and Cokes that hubs has been making have helped.

Speaking of travel, isn't this lovely?

Have you ever contemplated eating right from a pan - just so you have one less dish to wash? Not a small pan - like a friggin' wok?

The depths that I have sunk to...

That's all she wrote for now. Neither quality or quantity today, but c'est la vie...

I always eat right out the pan!!! And here I thought I was the only one.

Kripy Kremes are of the devil. But in a good way....

Go get some funky new glasses girl, you will feel great!

Kami's Khlopchyk said...

Or Krispy. Kripy ones well who knows!

EmptyNester said...

I just gave in and set up an eye appointment for December 1...hate spending my time there. And nuked Krispy Cremes??? Anyone who says they can pass those up is lying through their teeth!

Oh my gosh! We're 8 seconds in the microwave twins. Oh, and I haven't had time to go to the optometrist and can't see either.
Let's get on it!

Just get you eyes , I went to TLC at Yonge & York Mills.. I did for my 40th and it was the best present ever. So glad the nearest Costco is an hour and a half away, I could never resist anything there.

Eternal Instants said...

Hi Meg... A rum and coke sounds good RIGHT now! Glad you have a soccer free weekend... Enjoy!

Most people who say they have never eaten right out of the pan are lying... And if they aren't they probably are "stuffy" company anyway, I say go for it!

15 Krispy Kreme donuts wouldn't last 3 minutes in my house let alone three days.

Good luck with the glasses. I know if I broke mine I couldn't find my way out of bed. Hmmm...

Jen said...

your date above scared me... twilight zone!

Tooje said...

*hand raised* Guilty. Pan eating. Should we start some sort of anonymous group to cope?

Aside from the fun traveling and the really great position you apparently hold at your job, our lives seem eerily alike. The struggles, the great kids, the constant work life/home life suckage.....

Oh, and we're both born on the same date. That part is awesome.

OHmommy said...

I love soccer free weekends filled with donuts!

Knatolee said...

Hope you get some new glasses in a speedy fashion! I just got a new pair for the first time in six years (yeesh!)

I got a bag of homemade doughnuts at the local farmers' market yesterday. What a mistake THAT was! :)

My fear of nuclear war is that...my glasses wouldn't last, and I wouldn't have contacts for long. I seriously consider lazik surgery for just this reason. I'm seriously afraid, though, because of the chance that we'll have an earthquake right when the lazer is on my eye. I know.

Unknown Mami said...

May you find the perfect pair of glasses.

Any vacation sounds nice right now (except to the Mexican/American border, which I've heard/read too much about in the last couple of days to ever want to go there).

I'm sticking to contacts and mono-vision, simply because I'm up to tri-focals, and there is NO way...
