I know...where the hell have I been?

Or did you even notice? (smirk)

One thing leads to another and before you know it, I get a text from my BFF that said..."OMG, you haven't blogged for a month...you must be really busy"

Mmmmm....yeah. Alright, I've been really busy? (scratching head...deciding on this for my answer).

It really started with my father in law visiting and practically took my laptop as if it was his Hawaiian mistress.

If we all were at home, he and my laptop were inseparable. Plus, I was the entertainer/arranger of things to do/the buffer for all to get along....so trying to step away in to private mode was out of the question. And by the time my father in law was wiped out by my daughter in law-ee ways, I could barely wipe my own butt.

Flash forward a month later...

And...I have to tell you...having this blog has paid off in more ways than I could have ever thought. I really made some 'friends' that get another side of me. Have given advice, pumped me up, told me my writing skills are actually worth coming back for...you get it.

Well, fate stepped in one day when I had to choose between getting my contact lenses or eyeglasses. Well, my old self said...duh, get the contacts, maybe you can upgrade your grandma glasses later on in the year.

Later that same day, someone actually emailed ME, The Rambler, to review THEM (GlassesUSA.com). You say what? Me? No friggin way.

So...I said what the hell...I'll get some prescription eyeglasses and see what happens. I poked around the site which yes, was user friendly and since it had been a while, was surprised to see the prices were extremely more affordable than my own doctors office. (shhhh...I heart him so...our little secret). Sigh...but the true test is when I get them in my hands and onto my face.

I gotta tell you...I didn't expect what happened. I've had them for almost 2 months and barely take them off. The eyeglass frames I chose apparently really 'complimented' my face. Because I looked 'smarter', 'intelligent-er', 'sassy sexy school teacherish' , 'beautifulrific' from strangers, female friends and my younger male staff (eh, my 34 year old self felt a little cougarish with my 21 something year old making comments...wait what makes you a cougar? How old do I have to be?). I believe I even inspired a girl to buy fake glasses to see if it made her more tips at her tables. (It does, surprisingly)

So go over there...if you need glasses but don't want to break the bank. Glassesusa.com. I might have a 5% coupon code for you if you like...(Mommy5).

Okay so to recap my return after a long long time away...cause you all know 1 day equals 1 week. So 29 days is almost a half a year right?...(get back on point Rambler)...you learned that my father in law took my laptop mistress hostage and I look farking sexy in my new eyes. (Smirk, but sexy...)

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, I didn't notice you were gone.


"he and my laptop were inseparable"

Fathers and father-in-laws are TERRIBLE with computers.

People moan about the way these days we are always texting, online, constantly on the go using some "social network" and blah blah blah but really most of us are fairly good at getting the right balance.

Apart from our fathers, who for some reason just don't get it!

Oh, you have made my day!! I miss you so, and often wondered where you were (like I am one to talk!).
Hawaii tsunami threat: you were my first thought (regardless of the fact that I don't even know where exactly on the islands you live). I kept watching the news, CERTAIN, that you would be interviewed and set all of your loyal blog reader's minds at ease, lol. Missed ya my friend.

Shorty said...

Of course I noticed you were in absentia! And I was wondering when you'd be back. So glad to hear from you!!! Now I need a pic of you in these super sexy glasses. I want to look super sexy too!!!!!!!!!!

Sweet Tea said...

Glad to know your "hiatus" has not altered your sense of humor. "Still Crazy After All These Years" Do you know that song?...I'm heading over to look at the glasses on that site.

No more excused absences for you, Missy!

My father hijacks the laptop, too, and he messes up all the settings and ARGHHHH it makes me want to do unspeakable things.
