Eye see

I got contact lenses when I was home in November and have worn than without any problems. I love being able to pick up a book and read to the grand-babies without having to hunt for my glasses.

One eye of the prescription is a bifocal, the other not. Of course, the bifocal contact costs twice what the other does. The day before Christmas Eve I had my contacts in after not wearing them for a few days. As the day went on, it seems like I was seeing less and less, but I attributed it to not having worn them for a few days and having worn my old glasses during that time. Well, finally came time to take them out for the night, and what to my wondering eye, no contact in the bifocal eye. No wonder I could not read! So, since this was also the first day I had in a new contact I was a bit put out ($$$ down the tube) , but the next day I put in a new one. Now I'm one short in my six month supply.

Yesterday, I went to the library and had problems seeing again; I thought it was their new monitors, and came back to office and checked in the mirror - and oh oh, no contact. Return to boat and put in a new one - now I am down two! ($$$$$$ Twice amount of money down the tube).

To make this short, I called my doctor and they are going to replace the two I lost, I think at no charge, due to Blink-Out! Well, that's a new one on me. I told her it might be operator error, but she said it could just as easily be defective lenses. Since I had gone so long without problems I hope it is the latter.

Christmas came day before yesterday - an Amazon order! I received Shrek 2, and The collector edition of Lord of the Rings, Return of the King. I aLso received a knitting pattern book and the newest Atkins book published, Essential to Kick Start your Atkins.

We watched Shrek 2 two nights ago and laughed and laughed, especially at Puss-In-Boots, who resembles our Silly kitty in manners to a T. One moment an innocent feline with big eyes, and the next second attacking. Of course she only does this to Eric, and I think it is all a game!

No more new news -

Jobanna, another 50++ waves hello back. I am pleasantly surprised to be able to read a knitting blog from someone in my age bracket. Although I enjoy reading the young ones' blogs, I could truly empathize with your issues. For example, the other night I went to bet at 8:30 am the next day!!! This is after about a week of having 3-4 hours of sleep per night. I just look at it as more knitting and reading time!
