It's been one of those days so far

I'm not sure how to think about how this morning went.  First I went to a consultation with a physical therapist due to a range of motion problem with my left hip.  The tentative diagnosis is a hip joint problem and now I have to get a Dr. appointment to get referrals for x-rays and physical therapy. 

Then I went to get my new glasses adjusted as I was having problems with the fit of the frames.  Well, they broke the frames in the process of trying to adjust them correctly.  So, I had to pick out new frames and place an order for replacement glasses.  In the process I found out the new glasses had been ordered without the needed anti-glare coating (I have "baby" cataracts in both eyes which make night driving harder without it) and there are better and more costly lightweight lenses available - an additional $250 later I can now get another pair of new glasses with frames I don't like as much but that will fit better in only 10 to 14 days.

Since I don't want to write the day off completely I have just finished lunch and the dog will soon be the happy recipient of a walk.  The last three days have been too rainy to take her and today is sunny and warm.

The afternoon will be better!!!!!!

Update at end of day: Amazingly I was able to get in to see my Dr. and have the x-rays of my hip this afternoon.  Don't know the results yet by my blood pressure reading was 100 over 68 so that is a happy note!


  1. Great way to end the day!! Even with meds I can't get my BP that low.

    1. Thanks but I do take a very low dose med for something else that helps. I just figured I was so aggravated that it would have spiked LOL.

  2. I hope it isn't anything serious with your hip. Will be thinking of you.

    Isn't it insane how expensive a pair of glasses can be?

  3. Thanks. It is probably arthritis but the physical therapy should fix the current range of motion problem.

My DIL thought the moth that was in my front yard is a Hawk Moth. It is a White-lined Sphinx (or Hawk) moth. That is a new one for me but it...
