It is that time of year that not only are the animals getting yearly shots and checkups this Farmer’s Wife is doing the same. I recently went to the optometrist to get my eyes checked for what I thought would be just a routine check with no changes made in my prescriptions, when to my disbelief my right eye was weaker and a new prescription was handed to me.
On the way home of course I was trying to justify why I didn’t need my new prescription and that sometimes I really didn’t need to wear my old glasses when I was driving, which in response Tim gave me That Look, I don’t even need to explain the look because every wife knows that look. Anyway after justifying all the way home and even stating a few medical facts Tim replied to just think about it, you don’t need to go get the new ones for a few days.
At the sink I was thinking about our conversation while washing dishes. I looked out into the woods behind our house and saw my handsome cat Boss, at first I thought he was just rolling his beautiful white fur into the dirt but somehow it looked like he was trying to get something off of him. Thinking maybe he got stung I went out the back door and headed into the woods walking nearly right up on him, to my horror there stood a beautiful yet stinky white skunk. Who thankfully just walked off like he didn’t even see me.
Well I thought as I walked back into the house I will be getting my new glasses, I told Tim what had happened he started laughing saying don’t you remember me telling you about him the other day I was out hunting? Are you getting a little forgetful now? This comment did not even make me mad because what I was really thinking was I have got to pay more attention to what he is saying when he comes in from hunting and less attention on watching The HouseWives!
