Just wanted to let you know that I'm here just laying a little bit low. As most of you know, eye surgery is imminent for me - as in November 30th. To be honest, it can't come soon enough. My vision has deteriorated considerably. It takes me a good deal of effort to do any reading or computer work. Driving... well, let's just say it's stressful. I don't feel like I'm being unsafe at all; but I'm certainly being extra cautious and avoid driving all together if it's dark. DH has been wonderful in taking me places when it's difficult for me to drive. It's really hard for me though because I love cars and I love to drive. It's like cutting an arm off for me.
Anyway, I had to prepare a presentation yesterday and spent the day in the lab today so all the squinting has left me with quite a headache. Sorry if I haven't been bopping around and commenting as much. It's not that I don't care or am not interested. It's just really hard for me. So I hope you all are well! I'll be catching up again soon as long as all goes well on the 30th. Things should be looking much brighter then.... quite literally!
The good news and I'm counting this as one big 'ole NSV for me... I've refrained from any kind of stress eating and have been pretty good about exercise. I don't think I would be saying the same thing if this had happened same time last year. Woo hoo! I think that's worth a little happy dance!
Spark on my friends! Catch you later!
