I am loving the answers so far !!!!

Well I had such plans for this morning
We left and went to breakfast then I had planned to stop at Home Depot then the idea came to me to go to Bed bath & Beyond to look for a new toaster oven
When we left BB&B it started raining **surprise** so we ended coming home where I discovered somehow 2 birds had gotten into the screenroom
I wish you had seem hubby and I trying to get them out

Home Depot

lol What are the chances any of your list will get done ?

Well today looks like a wash out so that takes the outside things off the list but maybe tomorrow after breakfast we can make it to home depot

Bonus Question:

Do you wear bifocals ?
Yes

If so do you have the lined or no lined lenses ? tried the no line ones never quite got the "follow your nose" concept so they went back and I got lines

I use to tease a couple friends when they would hold things out at arms lenght to be able to read them. Right before I turned 40 my eye DR said " Don't be surprised when you turn 40 that you will notice your arms will seem as if they have gotten shorter"

He called it, when I turned 40 I realized I could no longer see anything close with my distance glasses on
I was so upset about having to get the dual glasses I went out and bought myself a very nice piece of jewelry to feel better .

- actually I only skipped 1 class ever it was the week before we graduated and there was "the hill" where we would all sit outside when the weather was nice
I was out there for "study hall" and decided to not go back in for the class before lunch
If you see a penny on the ground will you pick it up ? - heads up yes tail up will pick it up and give it away then it makes it lucky
Other than change, have you ever found money on the ground? - yes
How many different kinds of Pickles are in your fridge ? - hubby has a jar of the little round sliced ones that I think are sweet . I really really don't like pickles not even the smell so he has to serve himself if he wants any
Have you ever worn a "Tiara" ?
um lol when I turned 40 my sister threw me a surprise party at a kids play place - they had laser tag, go carts and they put the birthday crown/tiara on the birthday person
When we left the kids place and proceeded to start the bar hopping( lol we planned on hitting each bar all the way to the beach ) I over heard one friend bet with another friend how long till I lost the crown/tiara.
4 bars later I still had it on

Yes. Put our house up for sale, sell it in a day and move out of this awful city and back to Wisconsin.

Zip. Though houses will go up for sale and sell in about 2 weeks here. 2 on our block just did this.

I guess since kindergarten, that's when I started wearing glasses. That was 35 years ago.
