Let me start by saying that I went to the doctor this morning to get my eyes checked. I have pink eye in both eyes. For anyone who doesn't know what that is, it's a highly contagious eye infection that makes your eyes itchy and goopy. Once you start the drops, the contagion decreases quickly. The doc said I could go to work, so I did. BUT, I also know how paranoid folks are about pink eye, so I told my boss.
He comes over and says I can't tell you what to do (he's the boss, he can tell me what to do) but, isn't that really contagious? LOL! I took the hint, finished a couple of quick things and left. I got my prescription and headed home. Once I got home, I curled up with my book, a blanket, and some tea. Before long, I fell asleep! Man I like naps! The good news is that my eyes weren't goopy when I woke up!!
On a separate note, the kids got the Mario Kart game for the Wii today. Told them they had to read and do their chores before they could play. The boy decided that he didn't want to read. But, it was okay to behave like a baby when his sister did her stuff and was allowed to play. I'm ready to send him to bed. Or better yet, send me to bed! LOL!
At this rate, I think our Friday morning project is going to turn into an all-day, work until you drop marathon! Maybe an attitude adjustment will come out of it. Wish me luck!

Okay I'll admit it. I was smug. About two weeks ago, the guy who sits next to me in my cube came in with a horrible cold. Everyone around us was getting sick. But not me!! I eat right. I exercise. I'm healthy! There's no way I'm going to get sick. That's what I kept telling myself anyway. Here I am sitting here with a cold and two eyes infected with pink eye! Not fair! (Yes, Michelle, I'm going to the doc tomorrow for drops.) I guess it goes to show you that if it's your turn, you're getting sick!
On a semi-positive note, it looks like my computer might be fixed! Brought it home and started using it. Within five minutes, it went kaput. I took it back to the lady today and she said she knows the fix. I should have it back tomorrow. If I go to work that is. Otherwise I'll have it back by Thursday! Yippee!!
Okay, time for bed. Have to get up early to get me some eye drops.

My local university had engineering day for the family. It was free and since I just graduated from the University, with a degree, I decided it would be fun to take the kids show them what it was about. We got there fairly early in the morning and there wasn't very much of a crowd. we went to the wind tunnel first, something my son was very much looking forward to. He thought it was very cool. Then we talked for materials scientists and that was some pretty cool stuff. Later we went to make catapults. We had a blast making catapults and then testing out on pyramids of cups.
We only made it to three of the buildings and there at least one more to go to. But by then, it was noon and I still had to go grocery shopping and get laundry done. Maybe next year we'll plan on spending the whole day there. Now it's time to go to bed. Night night Sparkers.

in two weeks. I mean the gym. Did I mention how much I hate the new year?It brings out all the sometimes exercisers who take over my machines! This may be a good time to mention that I don't share very well! LOL! That (public) gym is really for my own personal use and others use it at my behest! And I didn't behest anyone!! LOL!!
Tonight, every single elliptical was being used! I ended up on a treadmill for 45 minutes (plus five minutes cool down), but I didn't hardly even work up a sweat. Lesson learned...I need to run on the treadmill, not walk.
As I was stretching and wiping off the machine, I swear that one of the newbies was staring at me! No, I was not sending "get out of my gym" vibes. Honest! I decided she was jealous of how good I look! Okay, so she probably wasn't even looking at me, and if she was, she probably wasn't thinking that. But, hey, a girl can dream...even if it's a witchy dream! LOL!!
