Today looks blessedly boring. At least as far as I can see into it today. I have my swim class and then my weekly work conference call. And that's it so far. Nice.

One thing I think I am going to start research on today is cataract surgery. My vision has deteriorated in the past few months. There's a clock at the pool that was easy to see last fall and now not nearly so easy. I really need my glasses way more than I used to. Last year, no glasses, I used to be able to prop my phone up on the dining table and read it easily. Now I can't even read the Fire tablet that easily from that far.

Plus, I've already cleared my insurance deductible. So it seems like a good idea. The clinic where my cute doctor is has an ophthalmologist who's webpage says she does cataract surgery so I'll start there. I went to her several years ago and was not impressed but that was for glasses/contact lenses and I should have been going to an optometrist anyway. I like the idea of staying in the clinic for stuff - billing/etc wise.

My insurance for glasses/lenses vision check does not kick in again until May 1 so I probably won't do anything serious til then so I won't have to worry about the possibles. But today I'll make the initial call to find out what the first step will be.


It's weird to have the computers in different places. Several times I've sat down at the desktop and really felt disoriented about working on it. Usually my mind is rock solid about what is on which computer and what each's proclivities are but now that they are in different places my mind is all confused. I do not like it. BUT, it will be that way for at least another month and it will get worse before it gets better so I need to get off my tuffet and deal.

Now I think I'm going to get off my tuffet and get another cup of coffee.

I think I'll stop at the market on the way to the pool - I need JOC - juice, oil and cheese. My Mom used to do that - make an acronym out of a short list. It always worked for her. It works for me about half the time.
Since there's a break in the work action, I think I'll head out a little early and get some time in the pool before class.

Crap on a giant pogo stick. No swimming of any kind for 3 weeks after cataract surgery. That bites the gynormous big one.

The cataract news is mainly good. Apparently, a cataract has to be a certain stage to come out and that stage just might not correlate to my insurance deductible. Sigh.

But the real good news is that the whole shebang, including the initial visit/total eye exam can be called pre-cataract surgery visit and so charged to my medical insurance and not my vision insurance. So, I don't have to wait until May.

She only does cataracts on Tuesdays - specifically every other Tuesday.
There will be two visits before surgery.
One the day after.
3 weeks - no doing anything much and no swimming. (this just sucks)

So, the first thing to do is make an appointment for the exam evaluation.

I was going to do that today but, I decided to wait. I want to make sure my cute doctor is fine with it. I'm sure he will be fine with it but I figure since I'm going anyway, I'll ask him first.

Also neighbor Ann is in mad love with the place where she had hers done. So I might go there or at least call and inquire.


Ann came by today. Their phone and internet was out from last Wednesday until today when they got a new, replacement modem. They hooked it up and all was back working again.

Meanwhile, they got a cellphone. She said they were going to the Verizon store when they passed an AT&T store and decided to investigate. The woman there sold them the perfect phone and plan for them. Simple, cheap and perfect.

She brought the phone to me to make sure she knew how to turn it off for movies.

Nothing was said about my upbrading of her husband. She did note that the customer support person who finally figured out they needed a new modem was in the Philippines. She didn't say anything more about it and neither did I.


I got a pile of work today which is quite nice. I'm pretty sure I can finish it off tomorrow.

Amira just called like the promised she would and says she will be here about 3 pm tomorrow to pick up this desk and hutch. Yeah!!! and Whew.

Amira just called back. She said they would be here at 5. I had told her before and I told her again, they have to be finished by 5 - condo rules.

This is not going to happen but there will be many phone calls and promises broken before it does not.

Arugh. Crap.

Amira called back. They will be here at 4 and finished by 5. Tomorrow.

I would love to have it all gone tomorrow. I am not hopeful.
