I must be crazy. Mousey's story

On Saturday I found a baby mouse in our garage. His eyes weren't even open yet. I ended up putting him in our old hermit crab's cage. I've been feeding him goats milk with a dropper. I feel a bit crazy, but he's adorable. Not sure if we'll be able to let him go when he's a bit older. It would probably be best for him.

Cure EB

There is a local girl that has a horrible disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa, (EB), is a devastating connective tissue disorder that affects 1 in 50,000 live births. It is a rare genetic skin disease that causes the skin to be so fragile that the slightest friction can cause mild to severe blistering, both inside and outside the body due to a lack of proteins found in the skin. The "glue" is weakened or missing from between the layers of skin. Today there is NO CURE. Severe forms of EB cause patients to live with constant pain and scarring. The worst forms of EB lead to eventual disfigurement, disability and possibly early death.There are many patients who are diagnosed with milder forms, which, while they can be extremely difficult to live with, are non-disfiguring and non-lethal. The only treatment for EB is daily wound care and bandaging. With skin as fragile as a butterfly wing, EB patients are often called "Butterfly Children”. On the outside, physical wounds prevent them from normal daily activities enjoyed by other children. On the inside, their dreams are the same as any child who plays, learns and grows despite the pain and challenges caused by their disease. Check out the website to find out more or how you can donate. Cure Eb I recently got a cute purple bracelet with a butterfly on it & the $ goes towards eb. They also have pretty purple t-shirts.

Thinking about:

Bermuda (where we got married)
Our anniversary at the end of May. I can't believe it's been 7 years. It's always such a happy time of year for us. Also Anthony will be shaving his go-tee for the Summer. woohoo.
Feeling: Creative & productive. Cleaning up my office & trying to get caught up in some snail mail letters.

Don't be Tardy. Love Kim she's so ridiculous, but I think she's funny. The Real Housewives of Orange County. I love this Housewives show. So glad it's back on.
Reading: Trying to catch up on some magazines. Family circle, Better Homes & Gardens & Self.
Looking forward to: This Summer. I'm starting to think about all the fun things we'll do. I'm going to work on my to-do list tomorrow.
Making me Happy: The warm weather & sun. It's been such a long Winter.

Summer goals

This is a list of my Summer goals. Not my usual Summer to-do list. These are just some fun goals that I would like to do before September 1st. That gives me plenty of time to accomplish them.

*Read 1 book
*Get a mani or pedi
*Make fondue
*Get a pair of Toms shoes (I've never had a pair & everytime I try on a pair of flat cute little shoes, they don't fit right. I have wide feet & they always gap open on the back).
*Do a vlog (I hate being on video. I have a fear of it, but my 5 & 1/2 vlogs & she inspired me to try it. If I hate it I don't have to post it.).
*Try a bun in my hair (I don't wear buns, but I thought it might be fun. I saw a really cute bun flower wrap online. I'm also thinking of getting a tattoo on my neck under my hair line, so that would show it off).

This is my new addiction. Every morning I have a bowl of this cereal with my chai tea. What a great way to start the day.

Today is the day

Photo via Pinterest
I'm posting this ahead of time because I will be going to have tests done today to see if I qualify for Lasik surgery. I'm going back to where I use to live & to the eye place that I use to go to. I'm planning on going there early & going to the Container store (never been in 1 before, so I'm pretty excited) & also want to go in my old mall. I'm nervous about the tests. I hate eye exams. I can't see good, so I can never read the letters. I hate having my eyes poked & lights flashed in them. I also hate having my eyes dialated. I'll have to drive home 45 minutes or so with dialated eyes. Wish me luck.

Boston you're my Home

I'm from the Boston area. I grew up about 15 minutes away. I lived in MA for 37 years. It will always be my home. I heard about the news & it made me so sad & angry. My hometown was being attacked. Some of my friends & family were there at the marathon (as far as I know they are all fine). A few days ago we were talking about going to Boston this Summer. Bringing Tara to the Museum of Science, Hard Rock Cafe & Faneuil Hall. Tara loves Boston. I was trying to watch the news a bit yesterday & Tara kept coming in my office. I told her what had happened, but later on wondered if I should have told her about it. Will she be afraid to go to Boston now? I'm hoping she'll kind of forget about it & won't be afraid to go there. We will be going there this Summer.

Yum of the day

When I went away last weekend we all brought food. 1 of my friends brought French Vanilla Stonyfield yogurt & another brought Wild Harvest Natural Blueberry flax granola cereal. They are now my fave snack/lunch. I buy the lowfat yogurt though. I'm trying to eat healthier & these are the perfect snacks.
