The ongoing saga or insanity of my family, writing, and the world in general...I'd spend all my time writing if LIFE didn't get in the way.

"I Can See!" Says the Almost Blind Woman
I awoke today with my vision almost restored to normal. I'm still way sensitive to bright lights like sunshine, but regular house lighting doesn't cause pain anymore. The past two days have been filled with boredom! Two whole days of drops in the eye, a darkened room, pizza deliveries, and antibiotics worked! I found out my husband's kindle will actually read text to me so that helped. I can actually see the letters I'm typing on my 27" monitor...so it's back to work. My pile of chapters to be read and edited have grown to a small mountain on my desk.
I expect the eyestrain of trying to read, but at least I can read. While listening to books is interesting, I've done it while traveling long distances often, it isn't the same as reading the printed word. I've gained a whole new appreciation for my eyesight.
