Greek, glasses and good music.

Whoohoooooo!

Home by 4:45
Had a short Friday as the Nashville office of NFIB closed at 3 yesterday to give us a head start on the weekend. Even though we were supposed to leave at 3, I stayed until about 4:15 or so. When no one is there I can get more done! HA. Made some progress on my usability testing plan.

Greek...Yummy in my tummy...tabouleh.
For lunch, I visited my friend Linda who is home getting well after having some surgery this week. We ate some Greek and visited...and I took more than an hour for lunch! Can I get another "whoohooooo!" Anyway, she's on the mend and hopes to be back at work on Tuesday.

Glasses
I've been meaning to take care of getting my eyes checked and seeing if my glasses perscription needs to be updated. Of course, as per usual, I've put that off for almost two years. (And, I could tell that my eyes had changed...my right eye kept getting really tired and throbby.) So, with the extra time last night, I went to Lenscrafters in Cool Springs (my vision insurance covers Lenscrafters doctor visits and 2/3 of the cost to get new glasses.) Got my eyes checked and sure enough...my perscription had decreased by quite a bit, believe it or not.

That means...you guessed it!...I got new glasses. Again, I tried really hard to buy some pretty, conservative, practical frames. I'd even found the perfect normal pair for me and was this close to buying them. Then I was told that because the frames were partially rimless...they would have to be sent away to complete...which would take 7 - 10 days. However, if I could find something I liked just as well or better that had a full frame I could get my glasses done within the hour. So, I decided to see if they had anything...and BLAM...there they were in the Chanel section of the display. I hadn't even looked there because I thought they would be too expensive and they were under lock and key. As I looked more closely I realized that they were NOT expensive and I tried them on. They were so funky and cool...I LOVED THEM. So...now here I am, typing this entry in my blog with my funky new glasses.

Good Music
Once I had my funky glasses...I couldn't stay home! So, I met some friends at 3rd to take in some blues. Mike Henderson and his band were playing. It was GREAT. So good in fact, that when I got home at 12:30 I was in the mood to write some songs. At 3 a.m. I finally went to bed. Thankfully, I was able to sleep in until 10 a.m. so I'm not tired today.

Johnny the Clock Plays Miami
Sounds like the BMT gig went well in Miami last night. John said he thinks they picked up a few more fans and sold a few more CDs. Whoohooooo. They played until 2:30 a.m. tore down and then didn't get back to the hotel until 5 a.m. Needless to say, they are a little tired. He's hoping they'll be able to take a quick nap before they have to be at the venue for soundcheck today. As I type this...they are on their way to Orlando for their debut at the House of Blues. Should be a very cool way to wrap up the Florida tour. BMT isn't listed on the events calendar...I think they may be playing a second stage there. More details tomorrow!

Yard work.
Right now...I've got to get going. There's clothes to wash and garden / flower beds to weed! Then, tonight I'm going over to my friend Donna's for a spell and may end up at 3rd & Lindsley to see Buddy & Julie Miller.

Sunday: Happy 4th!
AM: Church
Post-church: BBQ at Gwen's house
Post-Gwen's: Writing appointment w/Steve C
Post-writing: More yard work / cleaning
Should be a full and fun day.

Hope you have a PERFECT day today.
Catch you tomorrow.

XOXOXO,
BB
