Sparkly Lights

Took care of a few things today.
First thing I did was work.
The difference was that I stayed home and worked over the internet.

I actually think I accomplished what I intended, although I did not get as far as I had hoped on my project.
But, I was able to better set aside answering every e-mail that came my way, and certainly all of the walk-in requests. I wish I could do this tomorrow, but alas, I must go in.

One of the reasons that I thought today would be a good day to work from home was that I had a doctor’s appointment. Instead of leaving an hour early from work, I could leave after work hours from home.

Nothing major, just an eye exam.
It has been more than two years.
And for the first time in many years – my prescription did not change!

This does not mean that I can suddenly see, but that I have “stabilized.”
At least for the time being.

So I just had my glasses tightened up, and ordered a new pair of sunglasses – with full prescription this time instead of just medium vision. So – when I get to the cabin this summer, it had better be sunny so I can wear them while I read books on the beach.

While I was at the eye center, they kept asking me if I had brought any sunglasses, since they dilated my eyes. Since the sun was going to be down when I was driving home, I had dismissed that idea. However, the drive home was one of bright stars and sparkly lights. I almost think headlights are more of a hazard than the sun.

And yes, these were the most exciting things that happened to me today.

    As I recall, last time you bought new glasses you had problems seeing the new frames on your face because you couldn’t have them on and your old glasses at the same time. Duh. Well, how ’bout the modern trick of taking a picture of yourself in possible frames, then putting on your glasses and looking at the picture in the playback display (in focus). Works with phone-cams or just cameras.

      Too true about the camera trick. And my phone was in my pocket. And the woman who was helping me said, “We should get a digital camera.” (The store that is.) And I still find’t think of my camera, nestled in my pocket.

    I never get my eyes dilated these days because I can’t drive, or even see for many, many hours. (one eye goes back to normal quickly but the other one doesn’t) It makes me nauseated! When did glasses get so expensive and complicated?
