How did that happen – I was rearranging my “stuff.” Something had to go in order to have space for something else. I tossed out my collection of shoulder pads. (Stop laughing! I loved the ‘80s!) I always hoped they would come back but alas, they never did. I wonder what other “gems” I have stashed away. Having a house with a lot of closets only means you accumulate too much junk. Seriously the ‘80s were a long time ago!
Such a pleasure – I had visit with one of my new docs this week. He is 2 or 3 years out of residency. He is so passionate about his field. We are looking at new treatments for dry eye and his excitement was contagious. I told him not to change. Too many times after too many years and too many patients, doctors seem to lose some of that vibrancy. On the flip side, I hope he stays. I can see him moving to a practice that handles more complicated, challenging cases. It’s the old saying “if you do something you like, you’ll never work a day in your life!”
I hate computers! – I don’t really but you know the frustration. Something updated overnight. When I opened up everything looked different. I couldn’t read my emails. At first I thought I was going blind. Then I realized the font was too small. As it turns out Outlook reverted to factory settings. It took me a while to reset everything. Boogers!
Seasonal transition – We are easing into fall. Temperatures are fluctuating between low 70s and low 80s. Nights are cool. I cleaned up the garden, pulling the remaining plants. So sad. I still had tomatoes but the weather wasn’t warm enough for them to ripen and the ones that did were no longer sweet. Fall is a beautiful time of year but it doesn’t have the “hope” and “rebirth” that spring carries.
Speaking of fall – One of the things I look forward to is less yard work. No constant watering although that wasn’t a problem this year. Less weeds. In a few weeks all the planters and pond will be “winterized.” It’s easing into the hibernation of winter.
So how was your week?
