Just a few thoughts of this and that tonight. I went to the eye doctor earlier in the week, and he said that I should try contacts . . . I've tried them before, and they are great, but they make my eyes so dry. I have Glaucoma, and the Dr. is concerned that I'm not wearing sunglasses enough. So, he gave me a weeks worth of daily contacts to try. My poor eyes are pretty irritated tonight, I'm not sure what the verdict will be. Contacts would be really nice for photographing, glasses are a pain, when you are trying to take a picture. What do you think, should I give it a shot? My eyes look bloodshot, and very tired tonight.
Another stray thought . . . I miss having little ones around. I think if I did it all over again, I would be such a different kind of mother. I was talking to my daughter on the phone tonight, when she walked into the bathroom and found her youngest, little, sitting on the sink washing the mirror with hand soap. When I was her age, I would have been stern, and given him a talking to. This is what she did . . .
She took his picture, and told him that the mirror really did need to be washed, but that he needed to let mommy help him next time. so cute! He did get a little bit of a lecture about climbing on the cupboards. Oh, we must treasure every moment, they go by so quickly :0)
Another thought. Years ago, when I was a working girl. I had a cassette tape of Linda Ronstadt, singing lullaby's. I used to listen to it on my way home from work to de-stress. I loved it and think of it often when I am with my little's. She has such a beautiful voice. My favorite song on the tape was, We will Rock You. I was so happy when I found it, give it a listen!
More thought on motherhood . . . This beautiful woman, Alice, is like a mother to my sweet little grands. She loves them so much and is so good to them. She also loves my daughter, and is like a second mother to her. I can always depend on her, as I am 30 miles away, and she is just around the corner! I always say, a woman can NEVER have too many moms. I love her too, she is a wonderful friend, and such a good influence on my grands and my daughter.
More randomness! I love to draw, and my favorite subjects are, American Indians. They are so beautiful, and have the most wonderful features. A few years ago, (and when I say that, I mean 35 years ago) I drew this picture . . .
This is one I'd like to draw to go with it . . . so beautiful and proud!
Well, my eyes hurt, and I'm tired because I've been listening to lullaby's! Good night all, or good morning to some!
