The newest news is that I am ow wearing contacts (again). I needed new glasses, so decided to try contacts as well. I'm in multifocal lenses, which means that I can read as well as see distance without glasses. In a perfect world I would have clear vision 'at all distances' as the marketing writeups claim. It is a work in progress, but these lenses are pretty close. Now to see how much I can get glasses for on-line. I mentioned in an earlier post that I did go to Mexico for glasses, but didn't like any of the frames. I haven't liked any of the frames around here, either. So, I'll see what I can find in the world wide web.
Getting a clean bill of health, especially for my back, has left me with no excuse to not exercise. I have not been back to the gym as that was what seemed to accelerate the pain issues in my back. I am trying to remember to do the Step 1 of the Convict Conditioning exercises to start getting my core stronger. It does tend to involve a lot of watching the videos of the guys demonstrating the exercises on YouTube. They seem nice.
With yesterday's rain the triple digit temperatures seems to finally be gone. I've started cleaning the massive amount of dust off of things on the screened porch, and even swept my walks and carport. I continue to get rid of a few things here and there, and hope to get the piles of papers scanned and/or shredded. Staying home on weekends until the first weekend in November when I go to Las Vegas again.
That is most of what is going on. Mom is fine, the cats are healthy and happy. Work is... challenging. Less said about it the better.
