down, but not out

Didn't I just brag the other day about keeping up with daily blogs? Man! Well, the last few days have been quite eventful and although my blog has been 'down' for a bit, I'm back. Let's see, it's been three days...

Wednesday night...

'For external use only'

Hmm, I wasn't going to share this one but I guess we should all get a laugh at our own expense, once in awhile. Wednesday night I got home from a long day at work and naturally wanted to wash my face and freshen up for my evening with Da Vinci. I normally put on a bit of makeup before work but this particular day I thought I would go all out. I didn't have anymore mascara, so I moved to plan B. Waterproof mascara (which I always have for those special occasions, in which I might cry-yes, this is all planned out). Anyway, when the occasion requires, I have some eye makeup remover that takes off the waterproof mascara at the end of the day. I should only be so lucky. I didn't realize it but I was also out of mascara remover, so I moved to plan C.

I quickly racked my brain and vaguely remembered hearing as a young girl that Vasaline removed eye makeup. Wouldn't this be a great idea if I actually had some Vasaline. No worries, we moved to plan D. Suddenly it hit me that Neosporin has a very similar consistency (and sometimes use) as Vasaline. Do you see where we're going? What can I say, I'm a nursing major-I improvise. We should all take this moment to appreciate 'for external use only' labels. I put a glob of Neosporin over each set of eyelids. I really did think this was going to work. Not only did my eyelashes clump together, but I lost several and got Neosporin in my eyes.


'Little visitors'

little visitors

Thursday was truly a great day. Every year, my mom and I plan a beach trip and this was it. We don't have an adgenda while we're there; we usually bring books and lunch, and 'play it by ear.' To our great pleasure, Joleen and her charge joined us. We didn't get as much reading done but we still had a great time. It was the little one's first time on the beach and in the water. It was a blast watching her and taking pictures of her with Joleen. We had dinner together and walked along the shore, before calling it a day. In addition to Joleen and the babe, the little critter pictured above, joined us shortly after we arrived.
