I did not decorate much for Halloween but I did pull out my black cat, tinsel spiders, and the skull. When I push the magic button, the eyes on the skull light up and it makes a spooky noise. It turns itself off—too quickly in my opinion.
I'll never forget the year I bought the skull. Jack was 2 or 3 and it scared him—a lot. He looked at me as if I had betrayed him! I had to hide it until he got older. At 5.99 years old, he can take it now. Bear is only 7 months old, but I am not showing it to him. (Bear pulled himself up to a standing position yesterday, at my house! That's new.)
In other news, I'm showing this photo today because of the eyes on the skull. Tomorrow I am having a new tear duct drilled from my right eye to my sinus. Those of you who have been reading the blog for a while might know that I've had surgery to open my lacrimal duct 3 times. For whatever reason, this very standard way to treat a blocked tear duct has not worked on me. The next step is for an oculoplastic surgeon to drill me a new one. I do hope it works because the next step is not easy.
Why do I need the duct to be open? Because my eye makes tears and they don't drain. They wash down my face. It's not only annoying, it makes the skin around my eye feel bad. And I get a lot of eye infections (that's not good at all.) It's gotten to the point where I can no longer wear eye makeup… and you know, that's not all bad. I can't foof (phoof? pfoof?) up as well, but it saves a huge amount of time. And washing my face is lots easier. But still… I just bought new mascara and it's just sitting there.
If I don't post for a few days, that's my excuse. It's not supposed to keep me down for more than a day or two but I might stretch it and watch Netflix for an extra day :-). I want to see Orange Is The New Black…
PS—If you don't get the newsletter, I did put up a new video on how to use the Clover yo yo maker. If you don't know how to use it, you should watch this. It's a really cool tool!
