Who knew that blogging would become a self esteem issue...

I just feel that I don't have anything that important to say that it needs to be in a blog.

This is just a small piece of the entire puzzle that when put together usually says "You just don't like yourself much do you?"

So I am going to just REALLY randomize, and post whatever in the heck I feel like.

Getting Old Stinks Update:

OK, I'm not THAT old, no matter what my 19 year old says.  I did NOT create dirt.  Recently, my 1.25 readers just aren't cutting it in the reading novels department.  I wanted to make sure it wasn't a complication of diabetes, so off to the Optometrist I go.  Turns out I haven't been in two years, so it's a good thing I went.

He said everything looks real good, my distance vision is spot on.  Yes, I need to go up in strength for reading glasses.  Good news, my vision coverage pays for a pair of glasses a year!  So I'll be going once a year for sure.  Ended up picking a nice pair of metal burgundy colored specs, with nice dainty scroll work on the sides.

One pair I tried on looked cool, but I think my students would be upset from the shift in congruity if I wore glasses with hearts on them.  I am very proud that I am NOT "The nicest teacher" in the building.  I don't do "nice."  It is my motto that if you haven't ticked off one teenager a day if you work at a high school, you are NOT doing your job properly.  Take off your hoodie, get your hair out of your eyes when I'm talking to you, please sit up so you don't sleep out of habit, blah, blah, blah.

So in the end...

Good News - no diabetes complications in my eyes.  I am very relieved.

Bad News - Congratulations Iris, you're getting older.  (My hair colorist and I beg to differ)

Goodbye for today Interwebs.

Happy New Year!

Just like a lot of things in my life, I started this with great intentions and then let it slip away.

I'm still going to the workout group, and will post some new workouts soon.  It's only for the winter, so I will be taking what I learned and applying it to the local gym or just do it at home.

At this time of resolutions and new beginnings, I wish everyone a Happy New Year.

Hopefully this year I'll have some more to say on my blog!
