Cee’s SYW questions and my answers.
If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts? Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?
My vision has been changing slowly. I had tried contact lenses, but since I have been wearing glasses for many years. I prefer the look of wearing glasses.
After having a vision test at the ophthalmologist’s office, the result showed that I had a large blind spot in the pupil area of my right eye. In fact, I almost had an accident because I didn’t see a car coming from my right when I made a left turn. As a result of the vision test, I had both eyelids lifted as a medical procedure.
Are you more of a dog person or a cat person?
I am neither a dog person nor a cat person. We had a dog and a cat for our daughter. The cat got old and lost a lot of weight toward the end because she didn’t eat for many days. One day, a dog from across the street darting over at her and got her scared. Later, we found her passed away in the backyard. She might have had a heart attack. We also had a black puddle. My daughter had fun with him. One morning, we got up and looked out at our backyard, and found Pierre had been bitten and killed by a coyote. We let our daughter see it before she went to school.
Our daughter waited for a while before she got another cat.
If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top three items on your wish list?
We bought a new house twenty-eight years ago. The house had the three things I liked. Half of the house had the second floor. The second level had the master bedroom on one end, the kids’ bedrooms on the other end, and was connected by a “bridge.” The house had a large living room with high ceiling. We could stand on the “bridge” to look down to the living room. It also had floor to ceiling windows on one side of the living room with lots of light coming into the house.
It took two and a half hours each way for me to drive work. For practical reason, we moved to our current home which had reduced the driving time by half.
What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Last week, I learned to say, “This is all I can do for today. I’ll continue tomorrow.” I’m retired so I could afford to say that.
