First, an apology for the long silence.
Next, a rant about aging. Specifially about eyesight. This may be just about my least favorite part of getting older -- (other than my expanded waistline, that is. I always used to have a waist, no matter how big my butt was!)
I always had "perfect" vision, unlike every other member of my family. My dad and one brother were/are practically blind without glasses; my sister has had RK and still needs glasses. Not me... until I crossed the "40" threshhold. Then my distance vision got wobbly and I ended up with glasses for driving and movies.
Fast forward a few years. I'm taking classes at night that involve looking at slides projected on a screen across the room, and at my notes -- can't see either! Yuck -- bifocals. (I tried the progressive lenses but they just made me dizzy.)
Now, at the age of 55, my distance vision has miraculously corrected itself, but I have about 10 pairs of drugstore reading glasses scattered around my house, my car, my purse, the offices I work in... and I still can't find a pair when I need them -- which is almost always. On top of that, now the computer screen is blurry but the reading glasses don't help because it's too far away. I have an eye checkup on Saturday -- first one in about 4 years) and I know I'm going to end up with more glasses...
No quilty content today, but I promise to take some pictures of things I'm working on and post them soon.
Bloxorz update: stuck on level 30. forever. maybe new glasses will help?
