Life is Pain…

We are getting ready to take Jake and his friend Andrew to camp.  They are doing iD Tech Camps’ Film Academy, which is at McGill University in Montreal.  I can’t tell you how I’d like to stay and do the camp with them…  The drive should take between seven and eight hours depending on traffic and stops along the way.  Eliz, of course, is driving the entire 450+ miles.  Yet one more thing that I cannot help her do (and as you can tell, it bothers me.)  I think we are all looking forward to the trip.

I am a bit sore this morning.  My right wrist has been bothering me the last day or two.  I’ve had a few days of walking into things on my right side; door jams, shelving at the store (,) and a variety of other things.  It is very frustrating.  In general, it has been a bad week of seeing — or not seeing, I guess.  My left eye (the one that matters) has been watering more than usual and I’ve had a slight pain off and on the last few days.  If it continues, I’ll have it checked once we get back on Tuesday.

By the way, the title of this post is a quote from one of my favorite movies, The Princess Bride.


Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all!  We celebrated the same way we have for the last five or six years: dinner out – this year we went to PF Changs, then watched a movie with the kids that we paused to watch the ball drop.  We watched Hancock, which we saw in the movies over the summer.  We have always watched Dick Clark, but it is so sad to him that way.  That is not how I would want to be remembered.

I haven’t noticed much improvement in my vision over the last few days.  I am looking forward to my post-op appointment next week to see how things look from the doctor’s perspective.  I would also like to see how long I have to wait to get new glasses.  I try my “old” glasses (we purchased them last March,) but since the surgery I cannot see clearly through them.
