Saw the eye doc today. My eyes have gotten a good deal worse than my last exam back in '07. I have a 6 month follow up with him. Because of the meds I'm taking, they dry my eyes out (ok, they dry everything out. Trying to get blood from me takes either a very skilled phlebotomist or 3 jabs, whichever comes first =-) Dry eyes mean that my (or anyone's) cornea dries out and wrinkles which cause blurring. It also affects how much fluid is in the eyeball and therefore the eyeball shape, making the astigmatism worse, as well. It was a very educational visit. I opted to keep my same frames and just get new lenses put it. Might as well save myself $100, right? Looks like I'll be wearing my glasses most of the time for now on, though. It's going to be a weird change having to put them on in the mornings, instead of just when I was driving (not that I did much of that either) or staring at the screen (tv, computer, movie, etc).
Other than that, not much to report. I saw Mr. P today who used to date my mom. He's a super nice guy and things are going well for him. We talked about orchestral rock music like Three Dog Night and I mentioned he might like Dream Theater. It was good to see him. I liked Mr. P ("Rob" as I call him). He was one of the few boyfriends my mom ever had that was interested in me as a person. He even helped Demented and I move into out first apartment way back in February '97)
Knitted some, watched some videos, played Civilization on the Xbox and generally was a lump. The boys (J&J) were down for a little while today too. Big J is really into one of The Reverend's video games, Mirror's Edge. Little J played WoW for a little bit. Little J is currently the one who's being brattiest, but that will change. Over all they're good kids, they just have their moments.
as an aside: Medical retirement sucks.
