Happy random Friday! I am off today because a co-worker needed to swap some days. It means I'm working a 15 hour shift next Friday, but it's her son's pumpkin patch field trip, so how could I say no?
This week I did something stupid. A dear friend had a little baby girl, and she has been diagnosed with micropthalmia. One eye is smaller than the other and will remain so throughout her life. She may also have a coloboma although it is small enough that her ophthalmologist is actually unsure. I make all my friends' babies' handmade gifts, so I started a little teddy for her. You know where this is heading. Of course the bear's eyes turned out different sizes. Crap. I am now in the processes of making a safe little sweater.
This morning I did something more stupid. I flushed the toilet while changing the paper, and dropped the holder down the toilet. It flushed. It's gone. I'm flabbergasted. Should I call a plumber? How did that hunk of plastic fit down my 1902 pipes?
I'm thinking about running this marathon. The reason is silly - I don't want to "waste" those long runs I put in. If I'm already kind of trained, this is half the work! What do you guys think? It's November 27th, and the only reports I've heard about this race is that it is really, really, really boring and no spectators. I just ran a race with no spectators and I think I can deal with that, but is it worth it?
And now for your viewing pleasure, me in my old hometown at the old cemetery, making a funny face. We used to roller-skate on this road, and once we were cutting up loudly and throwing acorns at each other - then we came around the corner and straight into a funeral. Ah! Stupidity haunts me!
