Turning 40 was not so eventful for me. I am not a big party girl and just celebrated with hubby, Little Guy and CL (+current girlfriend). Nothing to wild, yummy shrimp at the local Seafood restaurant and a chance later that night to go scrapbooking at the local Scrap store.
I ate my Jumbo Shrimp plate and left with my van filled to the gills with what is so dear to my heart.
(my husband calls it scrap crap)
I entered the store and the first thing I always do is browse the new scrap mags. I love those pictures,
Especially Basic Grey! Another cropper was standing near by and we started chatting. I told her how much I enjoyed the scrap magazine called Simple but I wish they had stop making the pictures smaller because I could no longer read the by-lines or the words on the scrapbook pages.
She looked at me funny and said. ” Pam, have you had your eyes checked lately?” Me: No, why? “Girl, you need glasses… that print is the same as it has always been.”
My duh light went on… and a week later I was sporting my first pair of ” OMG, I can read again” spectacles.
And this is how my forties began…. I gained one year, another decade and an extra pair of eyes.
Have you had your eyes check lately?
