How was I to know???8:26 AM
Remember my eye problems, being on the computer too much has given me eye strain and thenI was having this problem where I would wake up in the morning and my eyes were really red and remained that way all day long.
I finally stopped last night and decided to think back to when this started and if there was anything different that I had done. Then it hit me.....about 2 weeks ago I bought new make up, new mascara and eye liner. The minute I started using those is when my eyes started getting red and itchy. You would have thought that I could make the connection straight away but I didn't, so I continued wearing it everyday and I admit..............one or two nights I completely forgot to remove it.
I guess I'm allergic to whatever was in that make up, I removed it all yesterday afternoon and instantly saw an improvement. I've kept it off and I'm going make up-less today........which means wearing sunglasses everytime I step out the house, I refuse to traumatize the little kids at school or any adult that comes into contact with my bare face. LOL
Chances are, I will get sidetracked along the way or lazy and they will end up being put aside until NEXT christmas.
I've been keeping up to date on my house cleaning, since cutting back computer time I get so much more done. I've decided that computers are wonderful but also addictive in a bad bad way. If you find yourself sitting at the computer desk for half a day or more, you know something is wrong.
Yesterday I got all the bed linens changed and washed, I swept the whole house and mopped, finished all the laundry and put it away, hung up my kitchen curtains and did my menus for next week.
Today I have some more laundry to do, I intend to stay on top of it so it doesn't accumulate, I need to make the grocery list for friday and I also want to go through my crafting supplies and fabrics etc and see exactly what I have and what I need. Should keep me busy for a while.
Get this, the housing at this base is privatized. The houses are NOT fenced in, so the back yards are wide open, something that bothers me because I can't let the dogs out without being on a leash, or let the kids just go play unless one of us is out there. I just called to find out about getting a fence and aside from paperwork it will cost us about $12 a month or more depending on what we want.........I only have one thing to say "WHAT the HECK?"
Now we have to measure the pros and cons, the pros of not having a fence is that they come in and mow all the lawn, water, do the landscaping etc.....obviously the con is the kids and dogs.
Now do we want a fence bad enough to pay $12 a month or more and mow ourselves etc......or do we just continue to take the dogs out on a leash, let the kids play outside with us there watching and let the housing people do all the work???? I am lazy, I'm kinda leaning towards letting them do it all LOL
What would YOU bloggers do???
I posted a recipe on my food blog, for a Blender pie. It's one of those easy desserts that you throw in a couple ingredients and VOILA, great custardy pie.
Now doesn't that look tempting??? It literally only takes a couple ingredients, dump them all into a blender, mix it up, pour it in a pie dish and bake it....it can't get any easier than that can it???
I'm keeping this one short, I have things to do and eyes to cure....doesn't that sound wonderful??? LOL
Besides, I just took a sip of my coffee without realizing it's gone ice cold, it's just nasty nasty nasty, this means I need a refill so I'm out of here. Have a great day everyone and please don't forget the Slow Cooking Thursday tomorrow.
Before I leave though, go on over to Mari's blog, her Works For Me Wednesday tip for today is about the Slow Cooking Thursday......she's a genius I tell ya. Go on and check it out.
