Christmas Dervish

I fee like I haven't stopped!

Since booking my laser eye surgery I have been in serious panic mode. I've done most of my baking, wrapped most of the gifts (I ran out of wrapping paper so the rest will have to go in bags), my cards are sent and most of my treats are ready to go. I know that in the end I will be so glad to have a deadline that is well before Christmas and since I will be forced to relax, I will be able to appreciate that everything Christmas-related will be done on the 19th.

I just have to get there first.

I saw Dr. Nora yesterday and she was so happy to hear how great I'm feeling. She reduced the dosage of the herbs that I take in the afternoon and she added red clover to help boost my low estrogen. I'm going to take it for 30 days and see how it affects my levels. It can't hurt. She didn't have any new ideas about why I'm bleeding post-Peak, but one theory was implantation bleeding.

Yeah right.

I start my antibiotic drops and eyelid wipes tomorrow. I can't believe that this time next week I won't have glasses anymore! It definitely is a good distraction to IF!

I need to go to bed. I cooked up another batch of treats and I need to get them packed up so I can get some shut eye!

  7. I am enjoying my mental image of the Christmas dervish - sort of like the Tasmanian Devil in the Looney Tunes, except tangled in strings of Christmas lights and garland, leaving bits of shredded wrapping paper in its wake, spinning in a hovering cloud of cinnamon and powdered sugar.

  8. I can't deal with the glasses, so I wind up asking dh to tell me what the program on the tv says. I only really have to get them out when I drive, but still, I don't like how much closer the fuzzy part of the world has gotten to me in recent years - wishing you all the best for your surgery and much enjoyment of a future without glasses!

  9. Wow, you are inspiring! But you can do IT!!!! I can't wait to hear about your life after glasses - I can't envision anything like that (ha!). Yes, I wear glasses full time...contacts were a no go - with my astigmatism. Ugh!
