It happens! I panic.
I try not to be vain; that’s my brain talking, because I do like to look decent and “young”. (At my age who doesn’t?) So my real glasses are not worn all the time.
Definition of Real glasses: bifocals – for distance and reading that should be worn ALL THE TIME. And I do wear them – when I drive, ride the Harley, and watch TV. Without problems, I pull on a cheap pair of magnifies for close work – otherwise I can see just fine. I lost my real glasses!!! For almost 2 days!! P A N I C !!!!
Joe always says I’m a mess and … he is right. We were enjoying a “Snow-cation”. You know – a vacation because of snow! Our work was shut down Thursday, and we were allowed to take a day of leave on Friday; on top of that it was a 3 day week-end! Woo Woo! Five days off with only 1 day of leave charged! “Snow-cation”!
We were having a great time – not leaving the house. He played his on-line game uninterrupted and I created uninterrupted! Wonderful! Creating – completing many projects that were in different stages:
Piles of boxes in different stages
Decorating storage boxes – several steps – finding the right papers, applying to boxes with modge podge, letting them dry. Now, time to cut envelopes – which papers to use? What did they match? Gluing together.
Boxes ready for next coat of modge podge. Deciding on what to add for embellishments to the boxes – latches to make – holes to drill for feet – beads for …
Time to assemble the topiaries – stain dowels, cut to length, which pot to use, add Spanish moss. And what about that idea I had seen last week for a new banner to cut – check online.
We have to eat and it is great to sit down and talk a little – afterward time to relax and watch a show we have DVRed on TV. Good, I can work on a “blooming book” while watching TV. Perfect. But my glasses are missing. Well, since I am making large flowers I can use the magnifiers if I need them. The TV is a little out of focus.
Day 2 and more of the above activities!!! I did shower and put on clean clothes daily even though I never left the house – that is important because after the 2nd night of no real glasses I was panicked! Yes, I had checked every pile and stash of stuff; even my trash basket! I had retraced my steps, I had looked and looked. Those glasses had to be here – somewhere. I HADN’T LEFT THE HOUSE! A very restless night followed. Then it came to me – sometime in the night! My bathrobe pocket! I thought about getting up right then and checking. That was crazy talk; I wasn’t getting out of my nice warm bed.
Joe is right! I AM a mess! The largest thing I create is a MESS! In my defense, I did get many projects completed, and I even made new kitchen curtains! (The toile reign is over) And I did clean up a few of those messes.
“Snow-cation” was a relaxing success! We loved it! I can see to drive to work!
