All systems go!

I allowed myself – plenty of time to get to my 8:50 appointment this morning, and wouldn’t you know I hit all the lights green with very little traffic. Fortunately they were able to get me in to see Dr. G. within just a few minutes. He is well satisfied with my progress, and at my request wrote me a prescription for glasses. They are for the no-line bifocals which I hate to go back to wearing again. I will though, because I can’t read the speedometer very well, nor see any of the important gauges on the dashboard. That is partly because of the distance – not close enough to see without glasses but too close to fit my distance vision – but also because of the awful gauges on the 2002 Ford F-350. It looks like they made the numbers and tick marks is a light gray paint color, rather than bright white that could be easier seen. I guess they never figured an old lady would be driving such a vehicle and need to read the dials.

I stopped to fuel up on the way home, and made a stop at the grocery where I bought a lot of sinful snacks! To go on my Wheat Thins I actually purchased a can of deviled ham! I haven’t had that for a long time, and I refuse to read the ingredients or nutritional statement. My arteries probably won’t like me for a while. To balance out the bad-for-me stuff I am taking bananas, grapes and cherries as well.

So I’m taking off tomorrow morning early, hopefully before the little girls wake up. I couldn’t bear to say goodbye to them and then drive off, so I’ll say my “see ya later” tonight.

Coming back from the eye surgeon’s office I started to feel like the luckiest woman alive, and am so grateful for my life – past, present and future. I’ve made tons of mistakes, both huge and small, loved and lost, and then loved again. I am blessed with beautiful children and grandchildren, and have had relatively good health all my life. I think this is where the last part is starting to wander off though, and there are a couple of health issues that I will have to deal with. Soon enough though. I’m planning to live til I die!

    Nice to hear that you are able to leave on schedule. Hopefully you will have a great time. Bon voyage and I am looking forward to your trip reports.

  3. And if you had left with just enough time to get to the doctor, you would have hit every red light and had a traffic accident that you had to sit and wait to be cleared out. Don't ya just love it. I am almost as excited as you are about your trip. Can hardly wait to read about it. Be safe.
