Not a huge problem but I was pretty much a no show on Friday. Felt strange as I've not taken a day off like that in a long time. I could say my cat ate my paper (post) but it was actually a little different than that.
I've worn glasses since I was 4 years old. I have unusual vision with one very farsighted eye and one very nearsighted eye. I can stumble around OK without my specs, but cannot drive, have trouble with the computer, and sometimes make mistakes due to poor vision. Well, I'm learning the Purrmeister will need to be watched much more carefully and I will need to be more thoughtful about where I put things....
Purrmeister has developed a love of picking things up in his mouth and carrying them around. I thought it was cute. Mostly, it's a piece of rope, a cat toy, a strand of beads--pretty normal for a cat. Then, I could not find my glasses. I turned the house upside down and was totally flummoxed. There really are only a couple of places I put them and so I'm pulling out furniture, emptying garbage cans, kind of freaking out. I eventually gave up and got out a pre-bifocals old pair, which helped a little...until I started getting a headache.
Then, I happened to notice Purrmeister laying on the couch in a room I don't use very much. Luckily, I wandered over to see him, and there, beside him on the couch, were my glasses. Oh dear, they have been roughed up some and have a few pretty bad new scratches on one lens, but hey, when custom lenses cost over $300 (and the frame is extra), I was just overjoyed to find them!! So OK, Purrmeister is learning to jump up higher and higher as he gets bigger. Soon, no counter, desk or dresser top will be safe...guess I'd better learn to deal with it! Somehow, the vision of him carrying around my glasses in his mouth would have been worth seeing...right before I freaked out, though.
Late breaking news of a new treasury!
Rose, the artist behind the wonderful blog and Etsy shop-each called "Random Creative"--curated it. She loves leaves and that is the theme that pulls this collection all together!
