Today is the best day of the rest of your life – I was reminded of that this week. I’ve been doing small house projects – repairing dinged woodwork and repainting worn areas. In my younger days I was a whiz at painting. I had a very steady hand and could free form cut in. Those days are gone. I don’t have tremors but my hand is not steady anymore. Climbing ladders and doing a lot of stairs (because I always forget something) is tiring. I don’t think there is anything I can do to regain that dexterity and find a fountain of energy. #poncedeleonwhereareyou
Flipping the switch – As I was removing the bird feeder for a refill, it slipped out of my hand and fell on my nose. It was a direct hit. I have a nice bobble between my cheeks. I could have sworn but instead I thought “Thank God I didn’t break my nose!” Switching from negative to positive makes a difference. #gladnotglad
Speaking of which – We are getting the huge storm that was moving across the country. Many places got lots of snow. We are getting lots of rain. Lots. So glad it’s not snow. I’d be snowed in for sure. Maybe without my mocha latte. #nosnow
Opportunity – The rain is good for washing the salt off of my car from last week’s minor snow. I parked my car outside for a good soak. #cheapcarwash
It strikes again – This time of year is bad for dry eye. I had a flare up this week. Paint fumes and dry heat will do that as will extensive research on the computer. My eyes were like coarse sandpaper and I was having trouble seeing clearly out of my left eye. True to form, I thought I was going blind. It was the end of the world! Soonest appointment I could get was next Wednesday. I started putting drops in every hour and doing warm compresses. It improved greatly in 24 hours. (Que me singing a song from Sound of Music while skipping through a field. Yes, I was that happy.) I can cancel my appointment. #hypochondriacentral
So how was your week?
