Right In Front of My Nose

I have had contacts since grade 8. I am quite blind without them, as my husband can tell you. I have always had gas permeable contacts. While they are more expensive from the get go, they can last a long time and the slow down the changes in your eye. I have had my current pair for over a year and a half.

The only thing that can be bad about these contacts is that you can lose them. Since they are pretty small and hard, they can bounce and fall into very small places. And since they are a bit expensive, you really don't want to replace them any more often then you need too.

Last night, after I put Joash down for bed, I went to the bathroom to take out my contacts. I closed the drain on the sink (you don't want to lose a contact down the drain) and got everything ready to go. The right eye contact came out no problem. I took the left eye contact out and my hair brushed over my hand and the contact was gone.

I didn't hear it hit anything, so I quickly examined my hair and my sleeve. No luck. I got my glasses and put them on and carefully stepped off of the rug on to the tile floor. I got down on my hands and knees and felt the rug. I stood up again, picked up both rugs in the bathroom and carefully shook them out. I took off my sweater ( a button up style) and shook it out. I brushed my pants off, took off my slippers and shook them out. No contact to be found.

I was getting frustrated, because I knew that in order to get a new contact, I would have to go to an eye doctor here and go through all of that rigmarole, which I really didn't want to do right now. So, as I was gearing up for an intense search of the drawer that was open and my make-up bag, I happened to glance in the mirror.

And there was my contact perched on the side of my nose.

How it managed to stay on through my entire search, I really do not know, but I am certainly glad I found it.

That has to be the best "lost" contact story I have ever heard! I am so happy that you found it.

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!


Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.

What's Going On?

So I have been really bad at blogging lately. Anyway, here are some highlights from the last little bit.




And the biggest news is that Joash's other front tooth fell out. He was pretty excited about this and now has a pretty big hole in his mouth.
