I was do for an eye check and finally set up an appointment. I decided to try a different clinic this time. They were very helpful. I don't think I have ever had my eyes dilated to the point they were. My husband was so surprised when he saw me that he thought he needed to take a picture of me that way. Glasses can be hard to find. Decisions Decisions..... Persol glasses have a lot to offer. It's picking out that style that compliments you as an individual. I'm glad I have that all done for another year.


Our grandson Emry recently had his 4th Birthday! His momma made such a cute cake! Emry loves robots so she came up with this idea. Pretty cool huh?!

Model Kits

Growing up I can remember watching my brothers work on model cars. I always thought they looked so neat. The detail was so great! When I met my husband he also had an interest in that. So our son's grew, we exposed them to different model kits. The detail has come a long way today. The vehicles can turn out looking so awesome!

Will I ever have my credit card paid off?

Thanks to Roman May

Has your credit card bill ever just snuck up on you? Recently, I have felt like I keep paying and paying on mine, and the balance falls ever so slightly. I have made up my mind that I am NOT putting anything on the credit card anymore, unless it is an emergency. I feel like I have been paying on it so long, I have forgotten what I put on the credit card in the first place. I really think that my balance stays at one thousand dollars every month even though I have been trying to pay as much on it as I can. I used to put everything on the credit card: groceries, electrcity rates bill, cable, and gas. I thought that I was doing good, because I was getting rewards points. The rewards points that I have earned by putting things on the credit card are definitely NOT worth the amount of interest that I have ended up paying. I really just don’t know how the credit card got out of hand. I was good about paying it off every month. Now, I feel like I am drowning in debt. I should have listened to my mother and not used it unless it was absolutely necessary!

New Car

We have never owned a brand new car. We have always purchased good used vehicles with lower miles on them. Some have even had warranty left on them. I know some people buy new cars but I just don't think it is worth the extra money. I guess it is good that we have different ideas. I think we will continue to buy used.

Beginner guitar lessons

Isn't it interesting how different children can be. In raising three ourselves, we watched each one of them follow their individual dreams. Our youngest son enjoyed cars and music. He took a great interest in guitars. From beginner guitar lessons to wanting to make his own guitar, it was fun to watch. He taught himself much of what he knows today.

Welding Cable

A few years ago my husband's father passed away. He owned a gas station and plumbing business at the time. While cleaning out things we ran across a very old welding machine. It even had welding cable with it. My youngest son was very fascinated by it. At the time he was taking some tool and dye classes and felt it could fit into what he was doing. It's was good to know that you could purchase items for a welder.

Old Movies

I think we all have favorite movies. I enjoy some of the old time movies. We have many great movies in a couple large cases and every once in awhile we pull one out to watch. Some of them we have watched many times. We have family and friends that borrow them too. There are many great newer movies too but some of my favorites are the old ones.
