Well, it already feels like it’s been a full day and it isn’t even noon as I begin writing this post.
I had a 9 a.m. appointment with my optometrist, Dr. Vincent. I have the same numbers on the left eye one day after surgery I had for my right eye. My eye acuity is 20/25 in the left eye and 20/20 in my right eye. Hopefully, like the right eye, within a week I could have perfect vision. Yea!
I’m doing great. I’ve had no pain. No scratchiness in the eye.
It’s raining outside, so maybe that’s tamping down the allergies that irritate my eyes.
Then I went by the vet’s office that is near there and took them a plastic sack of dog chews that Charlie can’t chew so they can give them to the dogs there.
While I was talking to Mary, I told her that I need to know what is wrong with Charlie. That we just keep getting antibiotics for this. He did have the cells that indicated urinary infection, but there must be a reason this has been happening for months.
This started five days after Abi died. I told her I need to know if we’re going to do tests or surgery or what. Because the not knowing is hard on my Charlie boy and it’s hell on my nerves.
She said she’d talk to Dr. Poteet when he was back in the office and get back to me. Maybe there isn’t anything else we can do now, but I want to know.
Then I stopped by Hobby Lobby on the way home. I know many of you are boycotting Hobby Lobby. And I certainly understand and respect that.
So the way I look at it is this: Hobby Lobby, which was started in nearby Oklahoma City, has the right by current law to set their own rules about birth control via their religious beliefs. I don’t agree with it. I’m not even religious.
I don’t like to bring this type of thing up. But every time I go to Hobby Lobby, someone comments about my shopping there, reminding me of why they’re boycotting this chain of stores.
So if that is your inclination, please don’t tell me you think I’m wrong to shop there. Their store has what I need for the right price, and it is only about a mile from my home.
Also, yesterday afternoon I was on the phone with Triad where I had eye surgery. They check up on you after you leave. I’m standing at the patio door looking out as we converse.
Suddenly there is the shimmery hummingbird I’ve been so anxious to photograph. It pauses, flitting those magical wings so fast I could barely see them, right in front of me.
And I’m on the phone!
I hurried off the phone and grabbed my camera, which I keep near the door. But it was too late. The hummingbird had flown away.
I was so disappointed.
And lastly, I’m working on a new project. I’ve carving out room for a small office area in my living room.
Because well, when you work from home, you kind of need an office space, whatever you can fit into your home. I’m always keeping something I know I’ll need, papers I may need come tax time perhaps.
And then I can’t find it because I can’t recall where I placed it. So I need an organized space for this.
I’ve given this a great deal of thought. It’s what I’ve been working on in my imagination for weeks, since before the first eye surgery. It’s given me something to focus on and think about.
I pretty much have all the components I need now. So I’ll be working on this project and hopefully I’ll be able to show it to you soon. This is just a little teaser as to my latest project around here.
