Hooray!....my eyes are in great shape and I'm told I shouldn't have to worry about cataracts for another 5 or 10 years (I have the very beginnings of them on both eyes). So I get to go another year without worry. My vision is still 20/20 and, although I have some astigmatism in my right eye, its minor. Not bad for a broad my age (which I'm not telling).
Because my eyes were dilated I didn't get much done yesterday afternoon except some knitting. Nothing which would make me re-focus quickly. Something that is difficult to do when your eyes are chemically dilated by the eye doctor. One time they were dilated so bad I had to go home from work because I couldn't focus. I ended up with the curtains drawn and slept for over 12 hours. Needless to say I became cautious about having that done again, but the Dr. I go to uses a different chemical that doesn't have such an effect.
I did get some of the holiday stuff put back in boxes and plan to finish it up today. Then it's on to getting the stuff off the back porch and back in place while sifting through it to see if there's anything that I no longer want or need (yarn excepted...one can never have too much yarn....or fabric). I'm in the mood to get rid of that which I no longer want or need or haven't used in a gazillion years. I have too much stuff! I need to organize! Maybe then I'll be able to find things when I look for them. It's going to take a good while to accomplish because just thinking about it is daunting. One area at a time, girl. That's what I have to tell myself.....one area at a time. And isn't amazing what you come across that you don't remember you had?
I'm off to...........

Good luck on getting organized...!

Yup, I'm glad for it. Being a diabetic means certain things have to be checked every year. Yes, do get your eyes checked. And good luck when you do.
The organization is sloooooowwwwly happening.
