    Sunshine, is that time a little better than usual for 800 yards?

    The 3 blouses that I had to iron are no longer laying on my loveseat here in the office. They are hanging in my closet starched and ironed. I also pressed some dress cotton white slacks. Took about an hour for all of it.

    Today I swam 800yards 22 minutes while my DD was asleep. She awoke midway through the swim. So sweet to have her home. She owns my heart.

    John and I worked all day...fatmers’ Market tomorrow which is our one day to make a week’s pay. But it is so hot and dry. Tough day.

    We are trying to get extra done because Monday John has the first cataract surgery. Frankly I would cancel it. The place we are using really has a conveyor belt setup. At least it feels that way. The staff acts like you should know everything about the whole physical process and I felt as if I was talking to a 12 year old. I was trying to ask about where I would be while he is recovering. She had trouble understanding my question. Duh?

    Anyway, here’s hoping the doc is as good as we were told. So, tomorrow’s market will be excessively hot and wickedly humid and I will barely be able to recover by the time Monday rolls around. Then there is his second eye which is more complicated because of a retinal something..

    I had a detached retina, and the surgeon I had didn't believe in knocking you out for that surgery. But I got through it, and can see fine now.

    Thanks. His retina has some bumps on it (not the word they used)...it creates wavy lines in his vision. I hope John has your result. Anything would be better.

    Linda, is it epi-medral membrane? I had that in my left eye close to the macular. I was scared, but it pulled out on its own, though not all the way. A retina specialist watched me for at least 1 1/2 years if not longer. I hope he does well with the cataract surgery and I hope both of you do well at the Farmer's Market tomorrow, both physically and financially.

    I did my exercising walking today. I know I really need to stay at something that helps me with flexibility a little more than walking does.

    Sunshine, you were right on target with your yards and minutes. So glad your DD is there with you and arrived safely.

    Linda, I've heard so many people say that cataract surgery is a piece of cake that I'm believing it--though I'm not signing up for it yet. I'd need somebody to get me there and back at least twice, probably a few more times for followup visits. And I just don't want surgery if I can avoid it at this time in my life. Hope your husband will be in for a great improvement in vision!

    One friend who had cataract surgery said she hadn't realized how "beige" the whole world had been looking. After the surgery she was amazed at being able to see colors ever so much better.

    I did or tried to do yoga today. It was really hard. I wish I could stretch out and get back to the point that I could decently do it all the time. I was better off doing that than the exercises that the PT gave me. However, when I was doing yoga on a regular basis I was lighter in weight and I did not have the swelling in legs and feet. The edema makes it harder to work the legs.
