This past week was full of appointments .... and rain. I already told you about the trip to the cardiologist and the wet state of my affairs.
The very next day we had an appointment with the optometrist. Since it has rained every single day, I located another umbrella and dispatched HeWho to stash it in the car, since I would not be sharing mine ever again with him.
The morning was bright and sunny. The soggy ground and the tall grass telling the tale of much rain. Of course, as soon as we were on our way the skies opened and rain was falling in heavy sheets. I saw some cars that were actually pulled off on the side of the interstate waiting for respite. We could only go 45 mph. The rain finally let up and the sky was clear as we made our way to the office.
I have a pair of rimless glasses and I was determined to get new frames that could easily be seen when I laid them down. The rimless ones seem to just disappear and I need glasses to find my glasses. I don't want contacts, never liking anything on my eyeball anyway. I had two pair at my disposal until Mr. BoJangles made his appearance in our lives. He seemed to like my glasses and he customized both sets. I gave up trying to fix one pair, as it would fall apart at the most inopportune times. The pair I am currently wearing have to donned gingerly, lest I stab my face or ear with the sharp point left from his chewing.
I am looking forward to the arrival of the new glasses. I knew my prescription was no longer strong enough as I was having trouble seeing, even with the glasses. Same for HeWho totally lost his glasses. I asked Bo if he knew anything about the missing glasses, but he just looked at me and tilted his cute little head. I often wonder what secrets lurk in that head of his. None of the other canines have ever shown interest in our eyewear. I think they will show up when we least expect them to.
I was seen first and had already finished my transaction for my two pair of glasses when HeWho was seated there. He chose one frame for his two pair. The man has no sense of adventure! I got two entirely different frames, one red, one blue. I can now match my mood to my glasses! Well, I can one day next week when they get here.
I knew my vision had become quite blurry, but I found out that I have cataracts. My first thought was that I can't possibly have cataracts, I am not old enough! But, of course I am! They are already at stage 3 and I am seeing surgery in my future when things slow down here. No wonder I have blurry vision! That will be my excuse for any mistakes you might notice in this forum!
