An Eye Full

So today was a full day of running around.
First off I dropped off Patch for his hair and nail cut appointment.
Then I came home (attempted to clean but didn't).
Ran back to pick him up and run him by the house.
At which time I then had to run to the school grab both kids for their first eye visit.

First off I am not a slacker when it comes to getting things checked but I have paid attention to my children and Prissy has always seemed to have great vision.
It wasn't until this year that G'man started complaining about seeing the board at school.
Then he started getting closer and closer to the TV to watch it.
After talking with his teacher I made an appointment for both of them.

No surprise Prissy has 20/20 vision.
G'man is nearsighted,
but he also has astigmatism in his left eye.
Which can cause blurry vision, tired eyes and cause further damage if left to struggle on.
The good thing is that he will only need to wear the glasses at school.
For sports, summer and around the house he will hand them over to me to take care of.

So the above has a photo of the glasses we ordered and will be here shortly.
I have to say that I LOVE our Shopko eye center!
Our Dr. Broadbend was amazing with G'man. 
Talked him through everything, calmed him down about what was going to happen and was amazingly patient!

He is so cute!

Sunny Day Picnic

I know I haven't been blogging lately - I wish I could say I was very busy - saving the world - something fun.
In truth though I have been done with the cold crappy weather. I lacked ambition. Focus.

Today, however, the sun came out! It was actually warm and dry!
The kids decided to celebrate by spending most the day outside - including begging for a picnic lunch outside.

A few months ago (my southwest Miche party) I bought 120 nacho bowls. (and yes that was the smallest amount I could buy at a time!)
Now I have been finding tons of fun uses for these containers around the house.
Today was another great day!
I made their sandwiches (turkey for G'man & PB&J for Prissy) in the cheese area I added some chips.

Yesterday we ran to IKEA, my hubby has a chair. A very special chair. The only chair.
You see a few years ago hubby had back surgery. This makes it very hard for him to bend, or move up and down.
Thus he can not have a soft, plushy, squishy chair. It needs to be firm. Supportive.
This is a chair we bought a few years ago at Ikea. Then the kids got a hold of it and... well after a few years of my children trying to climb the chair and their papa, it broke.
As this is the ONLY recliner we have ever found (5 years searching) that does not hurt his back, we went and got him a new one! This is his b-day, valentines day & fathers day all rolled into one.

I have lots of fun news I will be posting this week so I will be back! and soon!
