Besides it being a typical Monday. I had to make a stop at the Pitt clinic on my way to work. I woke up and my eye was so swollen and puffy. It was a little red in the corner. I bet it was from all the make up I wore over the weekend.
After I was seen they determined it was just a sty and it will go away in couple days. I am to put warm compresses on my eye 4-5 times through the day until it breaks open on it’s own, gross!
My eye was bothersome throughout the day, but I made it through. I wanted to get out of class, but I decided to suck it up and go. I was glad I made it through.
This morning, we had a chiropractor appointment, then we ate breakfast at Kings. After breakfast, we went to Walmart, then he dropped me off at home and went to to the grocery store. We are making burgers and dogs tonight.
While he was at the grocery store, I started bring up some fall decorations from the garage. I am trying to bring. It out little by little (pictures to follow).
When Drew got home, I helped him put groceries away, and sorted through my homework. I need to do some reading by next Monday. Maybe I will do some tomorrow.
Now we are watching the Pitt game. We look good. Even though it is only the first game! That’s a Pitt panther touch down! Roar!
I think I am going to start the macaroni salad. I hope everyone is having a safe and relaxing Labor Day weekend!
After work today, I went with Anthony to the gym. He didn’t get home until about 7pm. I was dressed for the gym, but laying on the couch. I thought seriously about not going. I drove to his house, and then parked my car. I got into his car and we drove to the gym.
On the way, we talked about work, my grad classes, the group paper and he gave me some advice, this guy he is talking to, and etc.
When we arrived to the gym, we played some basketball for a bit, then went towards the cardio machines. I was just not into it. I was so tired and ready to go home. We waved to Drew, who was in the weight room lifting weights. Then, we hopped onto the elliptical. I typically treadmill it up before I do the elliptical.
While we were on the elliptical, we watched John McCain’s casket arrive at St. Andrew’s base. We watch them transport the casket, into the motorcade. It is so sad for his family. Megan McCain couldn’t stop crying it seemed. Cindy McCain, looked stone faced. I can’t imagine loosing my husband, or burying my dad. Anthony had me laughing for bit.
At one point, Drew came over to say hi. He said to me, “I haven’t seen you smile this big, at the gym ever before.” I agree with him. Typically, I am not a happy camper at the gym. It is nice to have Anthony there with me someone to talk and laugh with while working out.
After we finished the elliptical, we did some strength training, then it was time to go. We drove back to his house, and I got into my car and drove home. When I got home, I was happy to see Drew. He could tell that I was just ready for bed. We hung out for a bit, then I went up to get a shower and lay down. We try to go to bed at the same time, but I am usually in bed and asleep before him. Tomorrow was Friday and it was about to be Labor Day weekend!
This morning Andrew and I had an eye appt. We went to Lens Crafters in the mall. When we arrived they took us back right away. Andrew was first. He wanted to get new sunglasses today.
After Andrew, they took me back into the room and they tested my distance, and shot a puff of air in my eye for glaucoma. All went well there. Then they took me back into a second room, where they had me look down into this machine, that was going to take a picture of each of my eye balls, so crazy. Then they took me in to the actual examining room.
When the eye doctor came in, and shook my hand and asked how I was doing. I told him well. I had no complaints about my vision. He said, that is great. He brought down the Sweeney Todd looking machine over my eyes. He had me read some letters all the wall and I read the very bottom row of letters perfectly each time. He said, great you have 20/20. Then he tested my vision when I read. I read the very bottom line with both eyes. he said, “perfect.” One thing he did recommend is blue light lenses. I would wear them when I am on the computer or looking at my phone to protect my eyes against the blue light, which can cause cataracts.
After the examination, he lead me out to the shop area, where Andrew was looking at Sunglasses. I told him him how the eye exam went and helped him pick out glasses. The sales woman also talked to us about the blue light lenses for me. I tried on some glasses, and Andrew I think is getting them for me next month. I picked out Burberry frames. Of course, they are going to cost us 134.00. The frames are what we would pay for, the lenses are covered under our insurance. Andrew bought a pair of Oakleys with polarized prescription lenses.
After the mall, we went home. That afternoon, I went to the mall to get some last minute things, and Drew went to the grocery store. I had to get a couple things for us for school. We were both back to school on Monday!
