Lipstick Junkie ...

I really love these new VIVIDS lipsticks. I'm not really a Maybelline person, although I do like some of their mascaras. Mostly, I wear Cover Girl for just about everything. However, these VIVIDS are awesome. I bought the orange the other day and picked up the pink today. Check out the link here to see the other shades. They're really cool. I'm totally into super bright lipstick at the moment, for some reason. They look good enough to eat. Probably not a good idea.

Today has been an interesting day. It started off normal with Rick leaving the house about 6:30am. However, not much after he shut the door, I heard a loud thunk. He slipped on some ice on the third to last step of our front stairway. He said he hit his head and shoulder, but insisted he was okay enough to go to work. I had a noon appointment to get my teeth cleaned, which meant I had to take the boys with me. I was totally paranoid about them going down the stairs, but they did okay. Then right by the car — BAM! Neil's feet flew right out from under him. Fortunately, he was okay, so I was thankful for that.

By the time we were driving up to the dentist (it's an hour away), Rick said he was hurting pretty bad and was going in for x-rays. Turns out nothing is broken, but he might have done something to his shoulder rotary cuff. They x-rayed it and are sending the films to be looked at closer. He's home now resting, but also has a splint to keep it immobilized for awhile.

Anyway, I stopped on my way home to get Rick some ibuprofen. To my delight, I also saw that locally grown honeycrisp apples were on sale for $1.99 per pound. I've totally been craving apples lately, and most of the other markets haven't had any honeycrisps since the fall. So, today has been very unusual. We haven't gotten any school done, but I guess we can catch up with that tomorrow. I just hope the rest of the week goes by smoothly.


  1. Hope everyone is okay. My favorite apple is golden delicious, I have some in the fridge now.

    1. I haven't had a golden delicious in a long, long time. Need to give them a try soon. :)

  2. Hope Rick is okay. My husband tore a rotator cuff skiing and it bothered him for at least a year. Hope it's not that.

    Fingers X'd

  3. Oh no! Hope he heals fast. We love apples here--all kinds!

  4. Hope Rick is feeling better soon!
