Jeannie, Donald and the girls picked me up this afternoon because they knew I needed to go to Costco to get some eyedrops. I went to the pharmacy and then to look for them. I could swear I saw Donald pushing a cart with a couple of kids, and he was going so fast I couldn't catch up with him. I kept following him and even called out a couple of times. The guy seemed to go faster when I did that. When I eventually got close enough to see it wasn't Donald I was so embarrassed I just turned around and split. When I finally found my family I told them they should keep an eye on me.
The eyedrops were for my "good" eye, and they didn't have them. I'll have to go back to Costco again on Monday or Tuesday, so I hope I will be ok for driving by then. This has been a very long ordeal for me, nearly a year since my second cataract operation. Patience isn't my strong suit, but I'm trying.
I am gratified by the response from some of the readers who have said they are organ donors. Like Jeannie of Where's Eldo I have the organ donor designation on my driver's license, and just hope there is something usable by the time I expire!
I sure wish Lady didn't aggravate me like she does. When we go out in pouring rain she inevitably has to sniff longer and in more spots than usual, or she sees another dog in the distance and completely forgets what she's out there for. I'm probably not as nice to her as I should be, but I just can't stand around in the cold wind and rain. I notice I feel the cold much more lately than I normally do. Maybe it has something to do with having surgery, but whatever it is, she is stuck with me for now.
I bought two new pair of sandals to wear with all those capris I bought last summer - that is, if it ever gets warm enough to wear capris. The sandals are made by a company in Buford, GA called Okabashi, and were delivered yesterday. They have tons of flip flops plus sandals, (also men's sandals) and supposedly they are reflexology based, supportive footbed, 100% recyclable (in fact you can send them back to the company and they will take care of the recycling). They are anti-microbial, slip resistant, and dishwasher safe. I never thought of putting a pair of sandals in the dishwasher, but I guess you could. They are inexpensive, $15 for 1 pair and the other was on sale for $10. I think I'm going to love them, and the best part is that they are made in the USA!
