A few weeks ago I heard Joan Jett singing on the radio and sadly, because I’m the mother of boys, my first thought was, “It’s the Sunday Night Football song!”
I knew that couldn’t be true but I was forced to look it up and it was actually Jett’s song, “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” instead (on which the SNF song is based). Either way, it’s a great song! And I guess there’s just too much testosterone in my house, LOL…
Gosh, I scare myself with that picture! I’ve been makeup free for three weeks now. My ophthalmologist is adorable. He told me that, speaking as a guy, men are shallow and think women look great without makeup. We laughed a little and then I told him, A, I never wear makeup because of a guy and B, I have mirrors in my house!
So we agreed that today, a week after my second eye surgery, I can carefully start wearing eye makeup again. I’m unnaturally excited to get started LOL.
Other than that, I’m going to Costco and to get a pedicure this afternoon. So that’s my fun-filled Friday. But I’m doing it all with perfect vision!
Here’s an update with minimal makeup!
And don’t tell me there’s no difference. Remember I have a mirror and 20/20 vision now lol!
I posted this back in 2015, but it’s just as relevant today…
I was at home watching Oprah when a special report broke in saying the first tower in New York had been hit by a plane. Like many others, I’m sure, I thought it was an air traffic control problem at first or some horrible accident — no one would have thought terrorism back then.
And then my phone started ringing — my sister, my mom, my husband. One son was away at college and one was still in middle school and I remember wanting them home with me right then.
It was all anyone could talk or think about for days, the shock and horror of it all. Even now, it still can fill me with sadness for the senseless deaths and injuries that day.
Do you remember where you were on 9/11/01 and how it affected you?
