Sunday Social {1.14.2018}

If we were meeting for coffee these are the things I would be telling you about today...

1. 2018 so far has been rough. Griffin fell asleep early with a high fever on New Years Eve night. He was sick from NYE Sunday until Friday, 1/5. It was NOT a fun week and very stressful and trying at times.

2. With Griffin being sick I was at work for a total of 2 days last week. Ugh. That pretty much put me behind for this week. Never fun playing catch up. I am thankful for the Hubs and his willingness to stay home a couple of days, too, so I didn't have to be the only one.

3. As of today's posting I still have my Christmas tree up. Technically, it's still January, so we're OK, right? I am just so unmotivated to take it down and put away all my Christmas decor.

4. Wayne is in Memphis, TN on a work trip, which means I am solo parenting. He left early Thursday morning and comes back this afternoon. And let me tell you, I MISS HIM SO DANG MUCH!! He is very rarely ever gone for an extended period of time, but when he is, it is NOTICED in this house.

5. I am riding the struggle bus today. I have about 5 loads of laundry that need to be sorted, folded and put away. No joke. 5!! I have poop in the backyard that desperately needs to be picked up, and as said above, I need to take down our tree, put Christmas away and get our house back to normal.

6. And last but not least, if you follow me on any sort of social media (which you should), you already know that Hailey was acknowledged at her school for a few awards. One for being an all around great leader in her classroom, one from her P.E. teacher and a third from her library teacher. We are so very proud of her.

Hope everyone has a great weekend, especially if you have Monday off!!

New Specs

So with the start of the new year I decided to purchase glasses that filter out the blue light from the computer. I sit and look at a computer all day at my full-time job and then if I do any work in the evenings at home with the blog or just general computer browsing, that is additional time in front of the screen everyday.

I do get frequent headaches and occasionally suffer from aura migraines. If you ever have had an aura migraine, you know that they are not fun.

I have been thinking about getting some version of these glasses for quite sometime as I have always worked in front of the computer, but I just hadn't pulled the trigger yet.

Until the New Year.

I had been seeing a lot about them recently. A few people I follow on social media and a few bloggers have them and have had great reviews. They are not expensive at all ($20 from Amazon) and they are super cute. So I pulled the trigger and ordered them.

I've only had them for a few days, so it will take some time to figure out if they really work for me or not, but it can't hurt trying right? Especially when they're this cute? I'll keep you updated.

Thanks for reading friends!

Happy 92nd Birthday Grandma Kleene!

Today is my Mom's Mom's 92nd Birthday. 92 years!!!! I would only be so lucky to live to 92 years. I shouldn't be surprised though because her Mom, whom my middle name comes from, Antina, lived to be 101 years old.

Since my Mom had me at such a young age, my Grandma Kleene helped raise me. I will be forever indebted to her and love and cherish her so very much.

Happy 92nd Birthday Grandma! I love you so much!
