Done! – Over the past nine months I’ve been getting treatments for dry eye. I have the severe kind, not the kind every person over 50 has (so don’t tell me you have dry eye too unless you actively doctoring for it). The kind that feels like someone put battery acid in there. It’s painful and annoying and the eyes are very hard to rest. This nosy Rosy uses her eyeballs all the time! I had three different kinds of treatments plus medications and I’m at a much better place. It will never go away. One of my treatments SHOULD include living on an island with good humidity (humidity is my friend!) and moderate weather. A Tiki bar nearby would be good too but it’s not absolutely necessary for my eyes.
Getting into it – I’ve been playing Mahjong for the past six months or so. I have started to do some exercises at home. That means having the tiles on a card table. Yesterday, my cat Morgan hopped up to help me. Before I knew it, there were tiles on the floor and a very pleased cat congratulating herself for winning her first game.
Ouch! – This week the beloved husband gets one of his wisdom teeth removed (or as I like to say “yanked out”). Neither of us have had an extraction so we are not sure what to expect. If it was me there would be tons of soup and mochas in my future. We’ll see!
This has never happened before! – One of the step kids (aged 50ish but we’ll always call them kids) visited this past week for a few days. I had bought some chicken to have on hand. It was in the coldest spot in the refrigerator. We never used it so after she left I opened the package to break it down into smaller packages. Ewwww! It stank so badly. Crime scene decomp stink. It didn’t look different. I wasn’t sure if it was the cryovac packaging or it had gone bad. I consulted Dr. Google. He said it was bad. It was within the use by date so I’m not sure what happened, but I wasn’t happy to throw away the equivalent of five meals.
A snowless January? – We are close to the end of January and the weather forecasters are predicting the possibility of a snowless January. That hasn’t happened before. Latest first snow date on record for our area is January 20th. Long range forecast is too warm for snow although we may have flurries. The beloved husband is taking credit for this phenomenon. He bought a new snow shovel in November. It’s a sure way to beat off storms.
So how was your week?
