always got time for new friends

Yesterday (and the glow is filtering into today too) was a great day. For two weeks I’ve been flirting with the guards for my parking lot because I kept forgetting to get my pass. BUT yesterday I went and got it! *does a little dance* I like the guards for our parking but I’m glad it’s over.

Then the freeway was PACKED and had horrible traffic and we were more than 15 minutes late to my appointment. Bear was a sweetheart who waited for me while I was with the doctor.

I went to get my eyes checked and get contacts and new glasses!!! Because Bear was waiting, while we were waiting for my eyes to dilate, Bear picked out some rimless frames for me. Mr Dr thinks there are some contacts that will work with the astigmatism and farsightedness I’ve got in my right eye. He’s the kind of Dr that tells you shit instead of just saying, well, this is your prescription and here’s your options. He explained why my options were limited and figured out why I’d had trouble with contacts in the past and why I hate my current glasses more than usual. He adjusted my prescription back to what it was about five years ago and said that even if we can’t get the contacts to work out that the glasses shouldn’t be as irritating.

Then we went home. Getting your eyes dilated is trippy. You think you can see, and you can, but it’s a bitch to focus. But I could drive home. We were really close. So its still sunny and about 80 degrees at 7pm, so we break out the brand new lawnmower (that runs on PROPANE, I can’t tell you how much shit Bear has gotten for that). Bear proceeds to mow the lawn that is about 4 weeks overgrown. I hung out and weeded and pruned as best as I could what with the whole not being able to focus. The lawnmower stalled out a few times with the super high grass. At one point I asked him if he wanted a break and I’d mow for a bit. He responded that mowing was a man’s job. I didn’t really want to mow so I told him sure, it absolutely was and he looked very manly. I started to walk away and he starts sputtering behind me. He should know better. After 9 years together, I don’t fall for much of his bs.

Then we got dinner, watched about half of Legion and passed out. Tomorrow we have the neighborhood get together and we’ve gotta get the raised beds for my tomatoes because they were shipped on Wednesday and should get here today or tomorrow. Sunday we think we might rearrange the furniture around the house to try something out.

    how are the contacts?

  • emmy

    Haven’t gotten them yet. Mr Dr is getting me trial contacts for astigmatism. If those are good, then we’ll stick with them, if they aren’t, we’ll try some other kind. He said we’ll keep doing that until we find something that works.

    Why master p?
