Eye troubles and a bad cold

Eye troubles and a bad cold.

I don't think I can do better on this post than to copy and paste this email I sent to my friend today. Those of you who know me, know I am completely self-conscious about wearing glasses and not having makeup on, even when I go to the grocery store. I haven't had to wear glasses for 2-3 weeks straight since I was 14 in 1984. About the same time I got involved with my long-term relationship with mascara, eyeliner, and eyeshadow.

Hi Karen,

Hope your week got a little better this week!!! Bet you're glad it's Friday.

We have our sales meeting beginning Sunday so it's been busy, but oddly not as crazy as usual. I think we have it down!

My cold got really really bad on Tuesday and then on Wed morning my left eye swelled shut and sealed up with goop. So, Wed so I went to the doctor thinking I had strep or a sinus infection or something. She told me I had a bad cold. Great. And to stop taking the cold medicine 'cause that's what was making my face and throat so sore. Even better. Then she sent me to the eye doctor about my eye. They poked and prodded and dilated it and told me I have a viral infection in my eye and to put goop in it twice a day and not wear my contacts for 2-3 weeks. Good thing I got the glasses last year! Of course this was on the brightest day of the year so my drive home was a treat with dilated pupils. I went to lenscrafters and got prescription sunglasses that day too, which is why it's been cloudy the last two days and will rain tomorrow.

That's my excitement. Feeling a bit better. People keep telling me I look smart in my glasses. (Did I look dumb before??) And I can't see behind me when I turn around to pull out into the street.

I feel for you. I did have a love afair with eyeliner as well but I lost it about four years ago and I am still looking for it. :)

Hope you are all better by this point (it's Tuesday the 20th).

Dropped by to say that if our streak was going to end, I'm glad it ended exactly the way it did!
