Today-my eyes


I had an eye doctor appt this morning-just a yearly check up. I planned to continue on to the fabric store afterward, 35 miles farther down the road. Well, I forgot that the Dr was going to dilate my eyes for the exam. When I walked out-mind you it was a cloudy day- I wasn't sure I could find my car. My sunglasses helped a little. I was getting a head ache from squinting so I found my husband's sunglasses in the console and put them on over my own sunglasses. I'm sure it looked really strange but I couldn't see anyone well enough to know if they were looking at the blind lady. I managed to stay on the road even though every time the sun peeked out from behind the clouds it was like someone shining a flashlight in my eyes. Nothing was going to deter me from going to the fabric store. I had been wanting to go for weeks but with gas prices I had to wait until I needed to go to several places in the area. By the time I got there my eyes had cleared enough for me to enjoy myself and the memorial day sale.

Oh, my God! I can't imagine driving like that! I could hardly grope my way to my husband's office after having that done one time. And "my way" was through what we call Plus Fifteens.... a long set of corridors 15 feet off the ground that connect the downtown buildings here in Calgary.
