A little more nostalgia
I'm not going to be writing too much about Nursing and medical stuff for a bit. Simply because I'm out of school and all the medico-babble in my head is temporarily on vacation.
In other news:
Yesterday, Ari and I had our annual Christmas cookie get together at Jenni's. I made Buckeyes (peanut butter balls in chocolate), Church windows (marshmallows in chocolate), and Christmas wreaths (cornflakes in green marshmallows). If anyone wants a recipe, let me know. I've got these practically memorized. Jenni made gingerbread cookies and the traditional cut-out sugar cookies to decorate. My mom used to make these and more every year when I was a kid. It's a past time I want to continue with Ari, which is why me and Jen started our cookie party tradition.

We exchanged gifts and Jenni got me a blast from the past. Remember in the 80s when Swatch watches were a big thing? She got me one! Do you remember those gaudy rubber swatch guards? In the 80's I had a pink one (which was used from a friend) and I wore purple and yellow swatch guards on it. They've much improved, this one's really nice. I love the butterflies. I'm glad the guards aren't real big right now, they weren't pretty.
I'm wearing glasses now. Reading ones anyway. I've actually have had reading glasses since junior high school, but I'm bad about wearing them. Just very mild far-sightedness with an irregular astigmatism. I recently had a check up and picked up some retro looking frames this time. My eyes have worsened with age I'm afraid. I like these frames and they look good on my model as well.
My little intellectual
Mike would have hated these, he hated these type of glasses. Reminded him of some old preschool teacher who was mean to him. They were too cute to resist though...had to get them.
