Jealous is not a word I usually use to describe myself. I normally don’t find that adjective attractive or useful.

But today, I AM JEALOUS!

Not of a cute young thing lusting after my husband, not of someone with a better house or car, and not even of someone who can eat to their hearts content and never gain weight.

No, today, I’m jealous of Kristi and her amazing talent.

I was flabbergasted last Sunday, when she sat down at our table in the ski lodge and proceeded to, with NO mirrors mind you, effortlessly take her contacts out, clean them, and put them back in FIRST TRY! I’m still trying to get over it.

That image kept flashing in my brain as I tried, and I kid you not, 23 times to put in my right contact this morning. Three times it dropped in the sink. But I kept pushing through it. Each time trying to channel Kristi’s talent.

“I WILL DO THIS! I CAN DO THIS! CRAP! How did she do that? KEEP TRYING! CRAP!” And on and on…..

Pretty sure if my brain had a stats page like my blog, the crap word graph would be peaking this morning.

But now, after 36 minutes of trying and both contacts in, I’d like to formally change the descriptive adjective to describe myself from jealous to adjectives like determined, successful and most likely…



But at least I can see!!!!!!
