My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

2 for 2

I walked in the door from teaching a a Relief Society lesson and was talking to Steve, (He had left before me to another meeting) and he had to deliver the sad news to me that I had addressed oh 40 ladies with a spot on my sweater :<. He tried to tell me it probably wasn't noticeable. It was right in the front so I think he's being nice. Yesterday this happened after I had met with my afternoon clients. Again, I hoped that perhaps they were busy with sharing their story and not noticing that their therapist had a spill on the front of her shirt!

Often Steve is here to give me a visual check before I walk out the door. The mirror is just not helpful to me anymore. Help me out -- share your skills/techniques (blind or not) if you have any! I apparently need a refresher course, fast!

Cycling Today: 23 miles around our loop. Hot and sunny. Love it.

Unfortunately I have no advice. I've just come to not care if I have a stain. Someone at Saavi once told me it's perfectly acceptable to make a mess. If I have a stain, oh well. I'm freakin blind; I think I have a pass haha. Though, for a professional setting, it might matter more. But I think people aren't going to a judge a blind girl with a spot on her shirt. It's just something I've had to let go because I don't have a solution. I'm sure I've got plenty of coffee spots on some of my stuff. I try not to wear white.

Wearing something that is multi-coloured might help - the stain or mark wouldn't be as obvious!

Just a thought ...

Oh I hate it when that sort of thing happens. I ALWAYS end up with "something" in my teeth when we go out to eat. so I have made it my husbands STRICT responsibility to tell me if he see's something, cause nothing worse then talking to someone with a pepper stuck in your teeth like some redneck.

Well, Becky... a bib always works for me! JK... I'm sure no one noticed. How could they notice while listening to your lesson? I'm sure it was awesome and you look absolutely beautiful too!
