So I woke up yesterday to what looks to be a blood vessel that had popped in my eye. Lovely. Had a nice druggie look to it. It was more towards the corner near my nose. All day long both eyes felt strained, dry and just nasty. I thought they were going to pop out of my head.
Today now, I woke up to see that the lovely red streak/blob has moved closer to the center of my eye. Does that sound right to you all, to have this thing move? I have never experienced this before. Today, they feel the same. The marked one is a bit watery and painful, but I don't think its pink eye. I've had that plenty of times and this looks completely different. I am going to keep an eye on it (hardy, hardy) and prays it gets better. I REALLY don't want to have to go through the work of going to the doc.
I took my mentee geocaching yesterday. We went with the full mentor group over this past weekend and it went well. Yeah, that should of been a sign. We headed out yesterday to a different huge forest park and got going. After making a wrong turn to start, we have to literally climb up this hill, which is beyond tall to get there. Then, 20 minutes later, we realized the cache we were hunting was in a field with seriously huge grass. NO THANK YOU. Mosquitoes are horrible in this area right now, so we killed that one.
On to the next!
Four more wrong turns I finally got a feeling of where it was. A huge tree that was surronded by prickly bushes. Lovely. E stayed there while I headed in, with only shorts on. My fault. But after cutting up my legs and being annoyed, I FOUND IT! Victory! We tried to hunt another one down, but realizing that too was covered in bushes, we axed the whole thing. By this time, we wasted an hour and she was spent. Kept telling me so was dying of dehydration. Drama queen ;)
Seriously, why are they so hard!? I have been wanting to get into geocaching since my co-worker started and I don't think she had as nearly as many problems. Why can't they be in easier areas?! Grr. I plan to try again one day, but maybe just by myself. Meh, least I got a workout in.
No running til my eye gets better, hopefully Saturday. I should say no reading either, but this Fifty Shades of Grey series is killing me. Damn those authors.
