Warmer, windy, possibility of rain here. Didn’t get rain per se yesterday and the sun came out later. 84F at one point… sure felt like spring. We’re on the edge of rain and storms for the next three days according to the national forecast. That usually means we don’t get rained on.
Spent yesterday at home, nursing my back. Felt ok, right on the edge of bad for most of the day with occasionally solid pain. Took some pain reliever before bed again. Don’t want to lose control of this and end up hurting for a week.
Saw the Optometrist yesterday. I’ve got a long and varied medical history with my eyes. Not good things either.* Most Drs are surprised I can see at all, let alone in the 20/20 to 20/40 range when they go through my medical history. Since I was there with the kid, and she had an appointment open, I figured I’d just get checked. And it was good. Some of the really old stuff has healed to the point you can’t even tell. She wrote a prescription if I want to get some actual glasses and correct the mild astig in one eye, but otherwise they’re close enough to each other, and the diopter is close enough to OTC cheaters, I can keep using inexpensive reading glasses. That is great news as I’ve been stocking up on cheaters in the auctions. I buy the ones Costco sells. The metal rimmed glasses are pretty good quality. I’ve got a decent stock for a couple of years anyway.
Today I’ll do a pickup or two, then head over to my client to finish up some notes. That should fill the day.
Stacking money is good too, and I’m working on it.
Things are getting weirder, quicker. I think the pebbles are starting to roll and pick up speed. Stack it high and deep.
*traumatic flap cut in cornea- resulting in scarring and ‘bubbles’, arc flash damage from welding, massive arc flash damage from an electrical accident, chemical burns from laundry soap, laser burn from an industrial accident, LASIK before it was FDA approved, ulcer on cornea that wouldn’t heal for decades (now healed), PRK to correct astigmatism, deep corneal abrasion from poking my eye with my safety glasses (the one she’s most concerned about), infection from dirty contacts, sensitivity to flicker, and eye saccadic movement issues. I am a firm believer in using safety glasses.
