Boy life sure does tend to get busy all the time, which leaves no extra time for writing. I hate that but I know things won’t be like this forever.
Luckily, we aren’t working seven days a week now so that’s a good thing, although short-lived most likely, as the holidays aren’t even here yet when we seem to live at our place of employment. As bad as it is holiday decorations are up all over now. Xmas stuff showed up the end of September. This is so disgusting to me. It seems Thanksgiving is left out entirely most of the time. Don’t people celebrate this day anymore? Instead the isles are crammed with Halloween costumes and decorations and Xmas trees, ornaments and gift wrap.

Hubby had cataract surgery last week and still has to do the other eye in another week. His are spread two weeks apart, which I’m sure is because of Columbus Day coming up on Monday. His experience has been different than mine. He saw red lights and then white lights during his surgery. Now is the stage when glasses aren’t really helping much at all (okay for one eye, but not the other one). But this doesn’t keep him off the computer, or from watching TV.

This is the amino acid for circulation. I'm hoping it works.
In other news, car problems are an issue again. I now need new shocks on the back of my car and the suspension system has to be serviced and straightened. (I have to say this is original though and has never been replaced.) This problem is wearing the inside of my back tires bald. This repair is over $1.000, so my mechanic suggested I just buy new tires every year instead of doing this repair to a twenty-year-old car. Tires aren’t cheap either at about $200 a piece, but I can afford to drive the car a while longer this way. He said I may be able to go longer before replacing tires because I don’t put many miles on the car. This is still in the thinking stage so hopefully the car will cooperate a bit longer before I have to replace the worst back tire.

Here's Jamie from Outlander. What a hunk of man and so brave and chivalrous.
