Next week is hectic. Concerts, milestone birthday celebrations that require overnight stays, out-of-town dinners, family reunions – They all fall in the same week. Yes, it’s exciting but it’s also exhausting.
In an attempt to make the week peaceful (ha!) without anxiety (double ha!), I have made a list.
The wardrobe is planned. Nothing is worse than wearing a dress you haven’t worn in a while only to find out the wardrobe fairy altered it. (Dang that fairy!) Or even worse (as if an uncomfortable outfit isn’t enough) there is a big margarita spot on the front.
The cat sitter is coming to serve breakfast because I am sure my cats would die without one meal. (So who is more neurotic here, me or the cats?)
Since my digestive system is…umm…let’s say delicate…I have medications to soothe it from every possible angle. Check!
Things are going smoothly. What can go wrong?
This morning I woke up to an annoying irritation on the edge of my eyelid. Oh no! Nothing is there yet but it could be the beginning of a sty. I rarely get them. Rarely like once a decade. It must be on my schedule for this week. Boogers!
At this point I can’t do anything but hope and of course look in the mirror every half hour to see if something is emerging.
There are meds for it and compresses and margaritas (you put those in the mouth not on the eye).
One good thing about having older friends is that they can’t see so well especially in dark or dim lighting.
If you see pictures of the Moody Blues concert, I am the one with the big booger on the eye lid waving her hands over her head and singing out of tune!
Note to family: The chance of strudel at the reunion is slight to none!
Note of aggravation: I can’t upload video from YouTube. I used to be able to do that. Now I get a restriction notice. If anyone knows anything that will help, I would appreciate it.
