Do you remember being a kid with dirty glasses?
Then she smartened up in High School and started using dish soap to wash her eyeglasses.
Finding a sink and soap is not very convenient on the fly – so dievca moved on to lens wipes.
Too bad they aren’t environmentally friendly…
- one use
Something of use that lessens the environmental impact, isn’t as messy as soap/water, can be carried in a bag and offers the cleanest vision dievca has found:
Wal-Mart’s Equate Lens Cleaner at $2.88.
This brand is dievca’s favorite. The solution is good for glasses, camera lenses, phone screens/lenses, computer screens, etc. – all at an excellent price.
An 8 oz. bottle lasted dievca about a year with a clean rag/towel doing the wiping.
Argh – dievca is out~
dievca will have to make a trip to New Jersey to visit a Wal-Mart…there’s none in Manhattan.
As soon as it gets dark tonight, look to the southwest. In the gathering twilight, you’ll watch the bright planet Venus become visible with a crescent moon barely six degrees below and to the left, as seen from the Northern Hemisphere.
If you miss the kiss this evening. Another opportunity will occur in a month, on March 28th, 2020.
Coffee and a Sweater.
It was a day before 10 am.
Dad hadn’t a movement in 8 days….with softners, prunes and trying to get him to drink as much water as possible, etc..
It took an Army.
Daughter, Caregiver, Nurse, Home Aid – suppository, prune juice & butter, manipulations, tummy rubbing, squat positioning being held up.
All while two people maneuvered Mom into the bathtub.
Then the arguing about taking a shower began – 5 weeks of Sponge Baths in a row doesn’t cut it.
It was a hell of a Birthday for Dad – but he’s loose and clean!
We ALL needed a drink by Noon.
Mom and Dad just took a nap~
New gates at LaGuardia (LGA) – quite a nice view!
Everyone gets their own chargers – now if they could add a cup holder~
We moved into this:
The low-pressure system dopped 5 inches over 3+ hours. dievca had a
shitty umm, not so great – midsize rental for the 1-hour drive (it took 2). To upgrade the car would have been $38-$76 per day. She passed on the upgrade and drove carefully.
After helping the caregiver shovel the driveway, dievca moved on to
What her Sister-In-Law left for her:
Always desperate for good coffee at my Parents’,
M. gave me a coffee packet for the trip.
The name made me laugh like heck!
We’ll see how those caramel notes soothe stressed nerves.
Big February Birthdays!
Dad, he’s still hanging on.
Brother? It’s a big one.
(But in all honesty…dievca is dreading the trip.)
