I spent a few hours yesterday with my grandson Liam, who is about 2-1/2. We played in his room with trains, building blocks, and legos; read books; and he put together several jigsaw puzzles which he excels at. He mainly wanted to play in his room rather than in the living room where I could sit properly, and kept wanting me to get down on the floor with him. I was up and down, and up and down, and knew I would feel it later.
When I tried to get out of my recliner in the evening I realized my legs were feeling the activity of the day and thought it would be a good idea to try the Bengay with the vanishing scent. Well, let me tell you in case you want to try it, you won't want to go out in public after using it, scent or no scent. I can't notice it this morning, so I guess it does vanish overnight.
I loved being with Liam though, and it was worth the aching muscles. He is a very bright kid and talks up a storm. I couldn't help but crash when I got home, exhausted even though I really didn't do much, other than crawling around on the floor. These are precious time to me.
I'm having a real problem with reading blogs lately. I can enlarge the print if needed, but it's the color and sharpness of the print that gets me. Honestly, most of it looks like a white background with light gray print. I sometimes find that with books as well except that I can turn so that the light hits the book exactly right. I've tried every setting I can find that adjusts the contrast on my screen, but it doesn't really help. My eyes are getting worse, fast!
I need to make a trip to the dreaded Walmart this morning to get my glasses adjusted. They've held up pretty well considering the rough treatment they get. I didn't want to have to go into the main part of the store, but need more of the I-Caps I take for my aging eyes. I also have a book or two on hold at the library, so I might just take care of that also.
I'd better finish my coffee (which tastes so good this morning) and get moving before the traffic gets too bad.
Later: I made it to Walmart without too much grief, and my glasses sure fit better after being adjusted. Now I can sit comfortably and not worry about having to go back out again.
I just checked my gmail account and found 4 spams: 2 of them were entitled "Can't wait to see you" and "I wait for you"; one was for watches and handbags, but the last one takes the prize: "We guarantee you get laid".
