I am so looking forward to mountain hikes to clear my mind this weekend. Nature therapy. Mountains. Cheese and onion sammiches and sunshine.
Spent hours in the mediclinic last night after a dinner at his parents because J got something in his eye that wouldn't come out (it actually scratched his cornea a bit) and so he had to get it cleaned out - it was quite painful. Other than supper not a great evening really. He has eye ointment now for a week. What fun...guess who is putting it in? Yes. Whee. It doesn't hurt as much this morning and should be healed up in a few days...but annoying. It was such a relief when the doc froze it to clean it. We were the last person of the evening in the clinic...the poor doctor was exhausted. I went to the closest clinic thinking it would be faster...could have just gone to our regular clinic since the wait was like an hour and a half anyways, but it had to be done. Poor doc had stitched up a screaming kid prior to us and just looked haggard... I just wanted to give him a bottle of wine and a hug. Clinic docs do not get enough respect.
Sooooo....didn't get home until 1130. Not asleep until almost 1. Not a great evening with a husband in pain being grumpy mcgrumpface. At least it's on the mend.
But -today is new. I am at work. It's sunny. There is a good free live show tonight by Delhi to Dublin for the local Jazz Festival that I hope to get out for with a few friends.There's also all the little things to cheer me up too- at the recommendation of a friend I've been listening to the My Dad Wrote a Porno podcast and laughing my face off on my morning walks. When life is dreary it's good to have a laugh to start your day with. Crude and funny and helps me crack a grin when I need one. Just gotta keep swimming until the weekend.
