busy and can't see....

I am having company for supper today. Second daughter heard that first daughter invited herself for spaghetti dinner, so second daughter and family are coming today at noon for, you guessed it, spaghetti dinner. Along with my sister (Aunt Cupcake), who second daughter invited and maybe a couple of surprise guests if they ever decide to answer their cell phone.

I'm telling you, hubby's spaghetti is famous around these parts!!

Yesterday morning, hubby and I were headed off to a "meeting" around 9am. We drove right through the little town where my eye doctor is and as we were driving by, I used my cell phone to call them and make an appointment for Monday. I am starting to have symptoms of that horrible ocular herpes I had at the beginning of this year. Well, we got about 10 miles away and they called me back. "Um"...the girl says... "the Dr. doesn't want to wait to see you until Monday." "Can you come in today?" So, we turned around and went back to the eye doctor (missed the meeting AND the $50 GCard for attending) and Yea, I have once again aggravated myself and have ocular herpes. Dang it...
This could get expensive. The meds alone were over 100 bucks and that's with insurance. There goes any fabric shopping in the next week or so.

So I can't do any sewing, no applique, no stitching. I should be able to machine sew by tomorrow night. I don't have an ulcer on my eye ball this time. I caught it before it got that bad, so I am hoping it will be cured just as fast. It's exactly in the same place I had it before which is good, because that means it followed the same nerve and I only have one affected and not a new one. You know how you always get a cold sore on your mouth in the same place? That's because the virus follows the nerve to that spot. Same thing.

So I thought I would leave you with this funny video.



Tonight is Homecoming at the Rock Star's high school. I have asked and asked and he says you don't give the girlfriend a corsage. You just take a bouquet of flowers which he will pick up in town at the local discount store. (if he remembers).. Since I have the boy end of the deal, I won't get photos. And he is wearing jeans and a polo. Guess they don't dress up anymore?

Not sure what kind of dance your son is going to, but we always dressed up at our dances. Even if it was just church cloths...Sounds to me like you really enjoy having all the people over for dinner. Enjoy the time you have with them...Looking forward to more of your quilts. Hang in there girl.
