Much of yesterday it was overcast. I kept thinking it was going to rain but it didn’t.
I keep seeing that same black and clear dragonfly outside. I wonder what is going on with all the dragonflies this year?
I lay awake last night going through what I need to get done before Wednesday’s cataract surgery. Someone mentioned I shouldn’t be bending over.
I’ve emailed my daughter about this, because I don’t think she could stay through the day. I believe she has to be at Andrew’s school enrollment.
But in feeding Charlie and watering my flowers (the spigot is about a foot off the ground) maybe I could have her go back and forth that first day.
I start the eye drops tomorrow and already have a paper binder on the kitchen table to write down and set up the times to check off as I do them.
The other worry niggling at me is that this laptop seems to be getting worse by the day. What’s on the screen moves around from time to time and I can’t use the cursor until it stops moving.
This mostly happens when the laptop has been moved in any way. Like setting it down when I get up. Then I have to shake it gently to try to get the screen to settle when I sit back down and pick it up again.
I sure don’t want to have surgery and then have to go out and buy another computer to write my posts. I don’t want to go out and make a big purchase until I have to either. I’m trying to eke all I can out of this one.
So things would be less stressful if I wasn’t having problems with the very thing I use to make money at the same time I’m facing surgery.
But we deal the cards we’re dealt. We have no other choice really. That is day to day reality. So I will just take things as they come.
I was reading this morning that if you already have dry, itchy and burning eyes your recovery might be a but impeded. I’ve always had dry eyes. But this past week I’ve had all of those other symptoms.
Today I have told myself I’m not going outside to cut vines or tend to plants, because maybe that is one of the irritants.
I tend to go outside with Charlie and then I suddenly see something that needs to be done, and without really thinking, I go do it.
So I’ll have to watch myself today about curbing those impulses.
I’m a planner. So tomorrow morning I will get groceries. I didn’t want to go before then because of getting fresh produce. So once I get that done and start the eye drops, I should be mostly ready for this procedure.
You’re probably getting a bit tired of me writing about this. But as you know what I’m thinking is what I write.
As with most things, this too shall pass.
