Still Here

I'm fine.  I've been battling a bit of depression and not getting much of the right things done.  No knitting, little cleaning, or working out, or hiking.  I have gone to the Casinos a lot.  I'm working on it.

I did go to Seaside, OR last weekend.  I reconnected with a high school friend who I thought was still in California.  Turns out she's a couple of hours south of me in Oregon.  So, I drove down and we spent about 24 hours trying to catch up almost 20 years of events.  It was fun.  I also was introduced to Oregon coast salt water taffy.  I'll be heading down again for some more talk and taffy.

I also got contacts last week.  Today is day 4.  I am on the last hour of my first 10 hour day.  I am ready to take them out.  I was ready yesterday a little before the end of the 8 hours I was to have them in that day.  I'm getting better at putting them in.  I'll find out in a few minutes if I'm also getting better at taking them out.  I'm a bit disappointed in how well I see, or rather don't see.  The whole reading glasses thing is a pain.  I also need to get some sun glasses for the first time in a few decades.  I'm glad I'm trying these contacts out so that if I get Lasik surgery I'll know ahead of time what I'm getting into.  Had I discovered all this (how fuzzy more than just 'reading distance' things are still) after going through the expense of an non-reversible surgery I'd be upset.

I am still sorting paperwork.  Also, Lori and I had a 'skirt day' at work.  Took me 3 tries to find a dress I could still get buttoned, and it was tight.  Several things are going in the donate pile from that experience.  When I lose this 10 pounds I've put on, the things will still be out of style.  Slowly I'm making headway in my pursuit of less stuff.

  1. Hang in there.

    It must have been a delight to catch up with an old friend.
