Yesterday I dusted the surfaces and moved most of the furniture away from the wall and mopped underneath.
Wednesday I have my first cataract surgery. They said it was very important that afterward I was not near any dirt for awhile. I figured this probably also goes for dust.
Dirt comes in our windows here. I have blinds and curtains pulled to keep it contained. I guess it’s coming in around the windows.
The man next door who’s moving in a week or so has a terrible time of it sweeping it all the time. Because his wife has COPD.
My eyes itch after dusting and mopping. It makes me miserable even with eye drops and allergy medication.
This morning I am washing the bedding. I want to have the chores done and the place clean so I’ll have a few days to rest my ankle and get the dust out of my eyes.
Last night while reading my current book, the main protagonist, who is a paralegal, was working on a case for one of the lawyers regarding a botched cataract surgery.
I thought no, no, no I don’t want to read about this right now. Luckily they just skimmed over that case. But it’s still in the back of my mind.
I worked outside for awhile yesterday cutting out dead vines. As I worked, at one point I heard birds overhead. I looked up and saw a couple of birds flying high.
Why don’t you come down here? I wanted to ask them.
I haven’t seen the hawk again. That doesn’t mean it isn’t still around. I watch Charlie very carefully when we’re on the patio.
I think today Charlie will get a bath in the kitchen sink. He hates a bath, so I do it as quickly as possible, dry him with a towel, and let him down to run around and shake it off.
Yesterday I also applied leather softener/conditioner to my living room couch and chair.
My furniture isn’t real leather, but it’s what I was given when I bought the furniture a few years ago to soften it.
It should be a calm Saturday around here I hope. I have a few more things I want to get done. Another load of laundry.
I have to sit at the table and read over all the instructions. I think you begin the eye drops two days before surgery. I have about 5-6 little boxes of drops setting there. As well as wipes for my eye lashes.
I often get instructions confused (because I’m so literal) so I need to read it over several times or more to make sure I understand it correctly.
I’m just curious. Does your eyes itch for days after you dust your furniture?
