The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, and The Just-Plain-STUPID

Happy Day-After-Your-Birthday, Jax!!  Love you and miss you... See you in December!!
Remember WAY back when Jaden scratched my eye??  Well, my eye is "scratched" again.  I have no idea how it happened.  I was laying in bed waiting for Mike to get home last night and I fell asleep.  He woke me up when he got home and as we were talking, I felt like I had something in my eye.  I got out of bed to go look and there was nothing there... nothing except EXCRUTIATING PAIN!!!  It hurt so bad, I almost vomited.  If you have never experienced a torn retina (lucky you!), trust me when I say that it is the WORST pain I have ever felt in my LIFE!  Yea for me, I got to feel it again when I woke up this morning!  I looked for the drops that the doctor gave me the first time Jaden scratched me.  I had two bottles of drops... one was for the scratch and one was for an eye infection.  I couldn't remember which was which so I just picked one and dropped it in my eye... OOWWWW!!!  I brought the drops to work and a friend looked them up on WebMD.  Guess what?!?!  I brought the wrong ones... So, I'm stuck squinting and trying not to blink all day.  Let's just hope it is better by the time Grey's is on tonight :o)
Scary stuff happened last night...  Mike and I were watching TV when his cell phone rang.  He didn't recognize the number so he didn't answer it.  After listening to his voice mail, he finds out that his store was robbed.  Lewis had called to tell him.  The first time Mike's store was robbed, he and Lewis were both there.  Luckily for us, Mike wasn't there last night but Lewis was.  The robbers had guns and took the employees' wallets, purses, and keys.  They emptied the safe and took some game systems too.  They told the employees that if anything happened, they knew where they lived.  Mike had to go in last night while they changed the store locks and figured out what to do next.  If you see Mike, try not to bring it up as he is pretty shaken up by the whole thing.  I guess we can just be thankful that he wasn't there and hope that there will never be a third time.
On a lighter note... Can anyone tell me why on earth Cloris is still on Dancing with the Stars???  It is absolutely ridiculous that Toni Braxton was voted off before her... What do you think about it, Gramps??

wow! I like your background! How did you do that?
But can you make your text darker? it is a bit hard to read.

Why IS Cloris still on DWTS? Probably the same reason that DJ/rapper guy was on for so long and doesn't have a rhythmic bone in his body - this is a DANCE competition, not a comedy routine. DON'T VOTE FOR CLORIS AMERICA! IT'S GETTING OLD! Amen sister!

By the way, LOVE your new background. Willing to share where you made it? I promise not to copy (exactly)!
