paraskevidekatriaphobia

Good morning, it is Friday...the 13th. Yikes!

Do you have paraskevidekatriaphobia? According to Wikipedia, this is the fear of Friday the 13th. I don't have this fear, but I am generally just a little more cautious on this day. When walking to work I will eyeball the cars coming in my direction just a little longer and just little stuff like that...maybe that is how the downward cycle into superstition begins? Shake it off Slane.

Yesterday was eye appointment day for the kids. We showed up at Dr. Koznoski's Fairwood clinic 15 minutes late yesterday, but they still treated us great. Lillie had her first ever real eye check up, which meant eye drops to relax her eyes...the rest of the evening she could not see up close. Kind of freaked her out at first, but when she realized it was only for a little while, no problem. She was reading in her bed last night just fine. Preston and Lillie have perfect eyes for their ages, Hansen needs stronger lenses to be put in his glasses.

Well, snow is now creeping into our weather forecasts. We will see if anything actually happens in that department or if it will stay in the mountains.

See you tomorrow.

I am a little superstitious. This morning (Sat.) I was relieved to turn the calendar page at the reference desk because it's no longer Friday the 13th. love, susanna
