Day 2 of new contacts. And I’m a wee bit dyslexic with left and right…

I read the labels carefully, overthought it, was way careful, and put them in the wrong eyes. Scratch one pair of disposable contacts. Went to another, and much happier.

But probably due to a half year of wearing a ‘wrong’ prescription, I have the world alternately focusing clear and fuzzy, one eye fighting the other, and while I cope ok in a quiet, static environment, I went with Jane to get a couple of 6″ cylinders for the sprinkling system–and that meant Lowe’s. And to take back an item at Freddie Myers, and that meant another mega-store and a 10 mile drive. I don’t get motion sick easily, but I was feeling queasy walking around the big stores, and hungry, which didn’t help, so we went to a local rice-bowl type place and had lunch, and we got things done. I’m still having just a little trouble coping. But it’s getting better.

Don’t let a prescription go because it ‘almost’ works. It means this sort of thing trying to get fixed.

    Does yours sell “white paint” in gallons, as in house paint? I tried to buy some last September–new siding needed painting fast! All they could show me was “pastel tinting base” and “dark tinting base”. The ding-a-ling kids, who obviously has never painted a house, said “This is white.” It’s not the same! That “unwhite” paint needs recoating this summer–it doesn’t have enough Titanium Dioxide to reflect UV and shade the lower film! (Yesterday I found some at Bimart, a local chain of small discount stores. 🙂 )

    Truer words were never spoke! I went four plus years without a new prescription; it took almost a year to get straightened out!

    The rose photos Jane posted are wonderful!
