Eyeballs and TV
I had an eye appointment with my laser surgeon today and I did a bad thing - drove myself home with very wonky vision. I also have to go back next month for more surgery - bummer. The laser surgery is nothing - quick and almost painless. What I hate is the ruined day, I can't read or use the computer-something to do with the screen makes it pulse through my enlarged pupils. I can't even shop because I have these horrible clip on lenses that go over my glasses. Between the strange glasses and fumbling with my bank card and wallet, sales people think I'm crazy.
So, all I could do this afternoon was watch TV. Haven't watched daytime in ages but I caught up on at least four soaps, Oprah, Dr. Phil who had a guy on who weighed 1000lbs!!, Rachel Raye and Martha Stewart. I love Martha Stewart, even her show is pretty. And Dr Phil is skating close to the Jerry Springer mentality.
The writing got off to a great start on Monday but went down hill quickly from there with household emergencies, kid stuff and well drillers looking over my yard and giving me quotes on having a new well drilled - expensive but probably worth it not to run out of water in August. I also had to complete a very boring accounting class for my Professional Development requirements. Hard to believe I spent years studying that stuff. How in the world did I get through it? I had to force myself to read all the material.
I'm going to be doing something a little more fun tomorrow - looking at flooring and bathtubs.
My exercise and writing went by the wayside too, so it's back to both of them this weekend to make up a for a little of the slacker week.
