I Can See! I Can See! I Think…

Well, the first of my two pairs of glasses arrived this afternoon. It’s what I’m calling the “public” pair that arrived today as opposed to the ones adapted more for computer use. So, given I’m only starting work again next Monday, these are the ones I wanted first, anyway.

The last time I wore glasses was for reading only, while I was at university. These are progressives, which is definitely taking some getting used to. If I focus in the right spot for what I’m to see, then it’s true that I feel like I have supervision. It’s as if I had gotten used to looking through slightly dirty windows but now all the windows have been cleaned. The best part, however, is that so far I’m no longer feeling my right eye straining.

Meanwhile, Le Maître said yesterday that, in a worse-case scenario, my official status could change by early next spring. Aside from visiting Lucy early tomorrow afternoon and REALLY cleaning up the apartment, there are only three “noises” or projects to start before next Monday, although there’s one in particular that I may comfortably delay. With things seemingly falling together favorably, I may use the cold winter months for a bit of austerity — financially and nutritionally — so that I may look forward to a cool (or hot) spring/summer 2012.

A bit of time and patience…
