I love Reader’s Digest and the fact that they are putting out this wonderful monthly publication in large print. I have noticed that it is beginning to get harder for me to read small print, even though I wear glasses, which I find to be a real pain in the rear, so I don’t wear them as often as I should, but I always wear them while I’m driving.
Yesterday I was in a waiting room that had a March 2011 issue of Reader’s Digest in large print, so I picked it up and started flipping pages to find something interesting to read for the short time that I was left waiting for my turn to be seen. I was overwhelmed with surprise and was delighted to find that I had no trouble reading a single word the whole time I was reading it. So I am going to look into a subscription of the large print editions and start enjoying reading this well known and well established publication without straining my eyes any more. I don’t know if there is an extra charge for the large print, but I’ll be finding out soon with the help of the good old Internet. In fact I think I’ll look into it as soon as I sign off of here tonight.
I think that it is great that people in the medical field are now allowed to wear a wider variety of medical uniforms instead of the old starched white uniforms like they were made to wear in previous years. From what I understand you can now even order custom made scrubs ordered at sites such as to offer men and women alike.
I know what it is like having to wear a “uniform” to work day after day, it does get stale after just a short time, so I really think it is cool that there is now such a great selection of these medical uniforms for all of medical professionals that work so hard on some of the craziest schedules that you can imagine. Feeling good about what you are wearing can make a big difference in your attitude and your work effort, am I right? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this subject, so feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email about medical uniforms.
I spent my birthday weekend at my best friends house and had a wonderful time. We went out to dinner at the Golden Corral and then saw the newly released movie Foot Loose which has been a favorite of mine for a good long time. Unfortunately there was some type of bug going around in her house and of course I caught it and now I’m sick as a dog and hating life.
I have always had a smaller than average pair of feet and that can be a real pain in the rear at times when trying to find a decent pair of shoes. I have to admit that they are getting a bit better at helping women in my position but they still have a long way to go in order to make a big difference for us.
The one good thing that comes out of this is that many times I end up wearing girls shoes and they tend to be a bit cheaper then women’s shoes. Right now is a good time to buy girls flip flops, dirt cheap since summer is way over and winter is right around the corner. I just picked up several pairs of girls flip flops on clearance for $1.50 a piece, the same ones in women’s sizes were going for $2.50, so I was happy for having small feet right then I can tell you that!
The only thing worse than having smaller than average feet would be having larger than average feet. I can’t see any thing good coming out of that situation, but not having to deal with that I really wouldn’t know. They say that will all bad there is good and with all good there is bad!
A friend at work gave me a delicious recipe that I want to try – a pumpkin roll that was stuffed with cream cheese. Well this morning I went grocery shopping for the ingredients and I could not find a single can of pumpkin! I tried canned fruit aisle. I tried canned veggie aisle. And I tried the aisle where they sell sugar and flour and canned pie fillings. Nothing! Nada! Zip! Zilch! Zero! What a bummer…..
