what's happening

TheOldMan pointed out that despite the title of the last blog "why don't i ever blog anymore", I didn't really blog. I just posted a picture.
So here you go. I am not leading a very exciting life so I will just sum up what's up.
I've not been sleeping well. Bouts of insomnia are uncool.
I'm trying contacts again and getting some fancy new glasses. I'm going to have my tear ducts plugged because I have dry eyes. (Thanks mom!)
We rearranged the living room. My house needs cleaning fairies.
Speaking of the fancy new glasses, let me explain our medical spending situation.
TheOldMan has a benefits card that we use as a credit card for medical expenses (copays etc.)
It automatically comes out of his pay and is tax free and all that.
We accidentally used it improperly at the beginning of the year and they suspended us from using it until we paid them back. That just happened this week. So, we have a years worth of money to spend in a short amount of time. So we've made eye doctor appointments and may make some dentist appointments. We are going nuts on the medical care. It is a good thing TheOldMan is going to the eye doctor. His glasses (which he never wears) are round and big and ugly. Plus, the squinting at the tv is killing me. He's driving me nuts. So, I am going with him to make sure he gets nice glasses that he will wear. And since we have an slightly excessive amount of money to spend, I picked out some stupidly expensive frames for myself. He couldnt believe it when I told him how much they were. Needlesstosay, I will have no problem spending this money. If we don't spend it, we lose it forever so I don't feel bad about treating myself.
What else. Oh, Snickerdoodle is going to be a Frog Prince for Halloween. Gramma made his costume and it is adorable. Tomorrow night he's going trick or treating for the first time. He's going with his girlfriends who are dressing like princesses. It'll be supercute. I'll post lots of pictures. And YAY! I get to leave town this weekend. (This town is painfully dull so even if I have to sit in the car for hours, which I hate, it is better than sitting around here all weekend)
Well there is a blog. I am hungry now which is too bad because we have not shopped for groceries and I have no idea what to feed myself.

I'm glad you blogged. It's nice to know what is going on at your house. I'm also glad the oldman is getting glasses. We've known him for almost 9 years (can that be correct?!?) and have NEVER seen the glasses on his face.
Glad you are going to be with us this weekend. Sorry it involves lots o time in cars.
love you,

In my defense... and backed up by the great state of Illinois... I don't need glasses. Squinting has done me fine for a long time now. If people don't like it, then they should stop looking so fuzzy!
