As if I needed A Reminder!
Ok, yesterday I went to get my eyes checked. I can't see with my glasses anymore and I need to be able to draw up insulin for my patients. We usually use pens now a days, but sometimes I need to use a syringe. So being able to see is important in my job.
I realize I am getting older. One only has to look in the mirror for the eventable fact to be plainly clear. Also I am fairly certain, if my memory doesn't fail me, young people don't have this much problem with arthritis and aches and pains in the morning....if they are lucky and I surely hope they are.
So anyway.....back to my eye exam. The darn doc tells me I am starting to get cataracts! What! At my age! Gee. I surely didn't expect this for at least 7 years. Surely you have to be at least 60 or older to get cataracts! I am just a young pup.
Now younger then my beloved dog who has passed me in age and yes....she has cataracts but she is OLD enough to have them. She earned them. I am just a young goddess of a thing. I can't be getting them. WAAAAAAAAAAAA. Where did my youth go?
It was just yesterday I was skinny dipping in the river. Bronze tight skin with the water running off it. My body making grown men grow taunt with lust.
Now I have cateracts! Sob. I could show my naked body to a bunch of men with really bad cateracts and probably still get the same reaction....if they forget to take their blood pressure meds that day or don't fall asleep in front of the TV.
Ok, with that depressing news in hand I went shopping after we got the last of my MIL's, ( yes the last!) clothes donated. A close out sell. 60% off. Sure to make me feel better and it did. I bought a wonderful new teapot and matching cookie jar to go in my kitchen with my chicken theme. I will take pictures tomorrow and show you. A 60% off sale.....almost, but not quite as good as sex.
