On our way over on the scooter I may have discovered why having larger American eyes aren’t an asset all the time. Riding on the scooter I have not found a way to avoid the wind blowing debris into my eyes, I have a helmet with a face shield and glasses, I get just as much dust and dirt in my eyes with them as without them. Today I just had my glasses on and I got dirt (most likely from construction) in my eye and we fortunately stopped for ice cream next door to a pharmacy so after we ate I went in and got some eye drops, not a bad purchase since I am almost out of mine from the states. The eye drops soothed my eyes and they are pretty and pink too! On our way home we stopped by a store and got this amazing candy that I got a few days ago that Nate loves. The outside is made of milk candy and the center is a jellied filling that is sweet but not overly sweet.
We rode home after all of this adventure and the afternoon was nice, I just wish my husband had been able to not reply to his texts and spend the time with us as a family. Even when we are home eating dinner he is answering text messages. I have taken to answering messages while we eat too and I’m sorry, meal time should be a time for us to connect as a family, not for me to glare at my clueless husband. Really, today the day set aside to honor mother’s you think he could have spent the time with us and present not answering his cell phone messages. Those aren’t in your face the people you are with are.
I’m off my soapbox now.
