THE CONTACT SAGA

I did go and get another contact for my left eye.  Never did find the one that I lost.

I haven't tried to put them in again this morning

I am going to wait and set things up first so I won't lose another one.

I would be to embarrassed to go back and say that I had lost yet another one!!!

I'll let ..."my one reader".. know how it goes.

OLD LADY AND CONTACTS

I am trying contacts for the first time.

I had to buy drug store glasses to see close up.

One contact is for close up and the other for distance.

I can get the right eye contact in on the first try but ohhhh, the left eye !

This morning, while trying for the 100 time to put in the left contact..It flew across the room. I have searched and searched but no contact.

Now, I will have to go back and ask for another pair.

I am on a trial period for 2 weeks to see if I like wearing them.

I hate to go back because the girl that fitted me was barely 20 years old and remarked when I was trying to put them in that.... It was great that someone "of my age" would try something new!!!!!

Now, I must go back and face the young one and ask her to check a see if the left contact is still in my eye or in a grave on my carpet!

Humbling experience!

I bet they were taking bets that the old lady couldn't wear them! Ha.

I will suck up my pride and go back to ask for another pair.

I am determined to wear them!

Old Lady signing off!

GETTIN OLD

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising.

 I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over

--- Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman: "And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?" the reporter asked. She simply replied,
"No peer pressure."

--- The nice thing about being senile is you can hide your own Easter eggs
.

--- I've sure gotten old.! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip
replacement, new knees. Fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine. I take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts.

Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.

Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But,
thank God, I still have my driver's license.

---My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

---I've tried to find a suitable exercise video for women my age, but they haven't made one called "Buns of Putty."

---Don't think of it as getting hot flashes. Think of it as your inner child playing with matches.

THE YEARLY PHYSICAL

 

A woman goes to the doctor for her yearly physical.
The nurse starts with certain basic items.
"How much do you weigh?" she asks.
"115," she says.
The nurse puts her on the scale.
It turns out her weight is 140.

The nurse asks, "Your height?"
"5 foot 8," she says.
The nurse checks and sees that she only measures 5' 5".

She then takes her blood pressure
And tells the woman it is very high.
"Of course it's high!" she screams,
"When I came in here I was tall and slender!
Now I'm short and fat!"

TINNITUS PART 2

Well, it's still here folks.

The sirens in my head.

Not sure why it came but I am willing it to leave.

I am trying several different things to help but so far...nothing.

I was driving yesterday and actually looked in my rear view mirror to see if the police were chasing me!

It's that loud.

Night time is the worse time.

Just got to deal with it.

I even bought a supplement for tinnitus but it said it would take 3 to 6 months if it works at all.

I see my Doc on Thursday for my yearly physical.

Maybe he knows of a break through.

Later,

TINNITUS

This constant sound in my ears is hard to live with, especially at night.

It is as if I have 100 sirens going in my ears at the same time.

I see my dentist tomorrow to make sure that I don't have TMJ or a tooth problem that might be causing it.

I want it GONE...right now.

The dentist tomorrow. The knee Doc on Wed.

It is getting sad that my social calendar is going to see Doctors!!! Ha.

I just trying to keep counting my blessing....I just can't hear what I am counting over the loud noises in my ears.

But...

I am putting on my Big girl panties and dealing with it!
