Trying Tuesday


Tuesday, August 20, 2013

OK a medical day today, nearly no exercise, though we did walk around the large Walmart parking lot while we got the tire fixed...so not a total waste. Went to dh's eye doc, and she didn't say anything about the Visual Field Test he had done last week. But the pressures are down to 10 and 12 from 45 and 52.....so awesome improvement and she said he should be able to retain the little sight he has left if he complies and continues to take the meds. Excellent report... just late in coming.... finally a doc who isn't taking his passive aggressive atitude but telling it the way it needs to be told.

Food was all eaten out today, and you all know how much I dislike that. We had Subway for lunch (yes, with the cookies this time) and then Tender Tuesday chicken and taters for supper... So, though not expensive, not healthy either.... Stopped at a few shops in Sydney, and then went and got Buddy his license.....only $10 a year.... he's got his own record and dog tag now... he makes noise every time he walks...

And I got a platform rocking chair today at Value Village at Senior's Discount for $14.... I finally have a chair I can sit on.... and the guy helped us to get it in the car, after much finangling we did it...

Still working on my book, page 240, still another 150 pages to the end....

I got a nice letter back from the coordinator where I had backed out on the training. She says she hopes to have the next session here in Sydney, so more people can be involved, so still possibilities.

Thank you to all who are there to support me when I have used all my strengths and need to rely on my friends....

    Glad to hear the good news about your dh. A good doctor can make such a difference.
Eating out can be challenging - I cringe when my dh decides to go to McDonald's - the salad I eat there really doesn't satisfy me.
Don't worry tomorrow will be easier! emoticon

    Sometimes knowing there is someone out there who believes in us and is offering support is all it takes to take another step forward!

Have a blessed day!

    It could have been a worse day. While the food choice weren't the greatest, they were not choice totally out there .

for a day away from home it was not totally lost, tomorrow will be better!

You are keeping incredibly busy. Sorry you ate out all day. Sometimes that can be boring.

Glad your dh has a good eye Dr. Rest well. Hug!!
