It has been a busy week. The phone has been ringing off the hook..Far Guy refuses to answer it because it is always for me. We are nearing a major fundraiser for the museum this weekend. I have all my “stuff” lined up and ready to go. Other people are slower with their responsibilities.. and panicky. So somewhere along the line it is my job to hold their hands and calm their fears. What time should they show up..heck ..whatever it takes to get the job done.
I am tired this week. I got a shingles vaccination ..do you suppose that would make me tired? We got a Newsletter from our Insurance Company and they recommended it for everyone over 60 and would cover the cost of the vaccination which has a going price of $232 according to a Nurse at the Clinic. Far Guy got one too. I know several people who have had the shingles and it is not something I care to get. Now at least if I get them it will only be half as bad..at least that is what my Dr. said. If you live to be 80 years old you have a 50% chance of getting the shingles. My Dad had them…and last summer we had a friend that had shingles in his eye..luckily his eyesight was not affected but it was worrisome.
I did some online shopping.. I ordered a pair of red crocs and found a couple of pairs of Dr Scholl's Penny Loafers for Far Guy..I think they are phasing out his favorite shoe. He has scoured our entire area looking for his penny loafers. So I ordered him a black pair and a brown pair when I found them online.
Paige our youngest granddaughter said the other day “Justin Bieber’s spots on his face make a heart.” …and then she almost swooned! ( Far Guy and I laughed a long time after that remark.) She is saving her birthday money for JB Concert Tickets if he ever goes on tour.
Maddie is saving her birthday money to go shopping at a Hollister Store ( I have not heard of this store until now)..I asked her if they had cool clothes..she said yes..and expensive. Apparently they have Southern Cali styles and you can shop at “The Dudes” or “The Bettys”..sometimes you can learn much from a Grandkid:)
