Hurricane and Eye Ready | Mommy and Me Monday | 396th ed


Never would I have imagined that a hurricane would hit our family in Houston, and then within the same a month, an hurricane would come through our city. We ended up very lucky (just like our family) because we weren’t impacted much at all. We had a few gusts of wind, but really nothing more. However, everything closed Monday (school and the Y included). BUT, our instructors are so awesome that they live streamed workouts for us.

Family Zumba before dinner? Sure, why not! We also did a 9/11 timed work out before.

Monday, we did pretty good together. But, by Tuesday we were all anxious to get out of the house. I had a LASIK pre-op appointment and was threatening to crash the office if it got cancelled. I wan’t wearing my glasses for no reason! Thankfully, it didn’t get cancelled.

And, my phone has been acting up. I can’t use the screen or I have to whack it hard or restart it. Which is terrible timing after an announcement for new phones because EVERYBODY is going to get their current phones repaired. I thought I outsmarted things. I didn’t.

So, while we were next door to an fro-yo place, we grabbed ourselves a little treat. Fro-yo and sorbet fix all of the things!

They decided they needed a little break from me for a meeting of the minds. My phone only reset twice trying to grab this picture!

B is my latest to become a LipSense-aholic. She wants to put it on her hands just like mommy…and make silly faces. I’m down with this nonsense.

I decided to try a new color, too (Plumeria) because it matches my post-op eyes. I guess I’ll keep her!

It’s been another one of those weeks. I don’t know what day it is or where I’m supposed to be half of the time, but we are getting through it and surviving!

What did you do this week?

GET IN THE PICTURE WITH YOUR KIDS! Who cares what you look like? Who cares how you appear? Who cares what you are wearing? JUST DO IT! Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.  Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friend’s husband.

  1. Glad you all are okay. This has been a wild hurricane season. And, I hear you on the craziness of life and not knowing what day it is. That’s been my last month. Ready for life to return to boring.

  2. What do you think of Lip sense? I got 1 to do a review on. I don’t like the taste of it. How are your eyes since lasik? I had it done 4 years ago (an older version called prk), but my eyes got worse, so I’m back to wearing glasses all the time. I miss my contacts. Jose is heading near us now. So we’ll be getting rain & wind the next few days.

    1. I actually love LipSense and I wear it pretty much every day. I haven’t noticed a taste to it at all. Did you get a gloss, too and use that?

      I’m still in recovery mode, but I think they are doing well.

      PRK actually is still around and the dr that did my LASIK actually prefers PRK. My husband had it done 6 years ago and is good. I don’t know that I’ll get 6 years, but I hope I do!

      Hopefully Jose takes it easy on you all.
