A New Outlook

It was frustrating. My eyesight kept getting worse and worse. Would you believe, I was using "readers" over my bifocals in order to enjoy reading?!
All that has changed since I had cataract surgery. I am now the owner of two IOL's (intra-ocular lenses).... multi-focal ones, even. What a difference this had made in my life!
When I wake up in the middle of the night, I can see the clock on the dresser. Heck, I can even see the dresser. At work I'm tempted to show off a little bit, reading the tiniest print on the tiniest vials (did you know that some medications are actually made in the USA?). One of the first places I really appreciated my new-found visual prowess was in the shower; no more squinting to tell which bottle contains the shampoo. Wow! Good-bye glasses. I won't miss you a bit.
Now, excuse me while I go put shower cleaner on my shopping list.

Ha Ha, Fooled You

Madison was visiting me this morning and started singing, "Ha, ha, fooled you! I'm so mean."
She said she learned it from Mommy and Daddy.
I couldn't wait to hear about this from KB, who laughed and said, "It's not quite right, Madison."
Here's the song (Reiley brought it home from Kindergarten):
"Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Ha, ha, fooled you!
I'm a submarine."
