Daily Update NaNoWriMo Day 7
Yesterday was a work day in the office. I got a lot accomplished at the office and I’ll have the first of many demos of an application I’m working on. I was fine while in the office even though the two coworkers that showed up (most of us telecommute most of the time) were both mucus filled and there was much coughing and sneezing. I’m normally very resilient to colds so I wasn’t in fear for my life.
I had an eye doctor’s appointment in the afternoon. His office is now next to where the wife works. I think that’s great. It’s a much shorter drive to an easier to get to location. At least for me it is. Anyway, according to the eye doc, my vision hasn’t changed in about 4 years. That’s how long I’ve been going to him. As far as I know it’s been 10 years or better since my vision has changed. He said that’s not normal. Usually in that time he’ll see some variation, but my eyes are healthy inside and out. I got to see the inside images of my eyes. That was pretty cool. My eyes were dilated, but my prescription and I was on my way.
I stopped next door to surprise the wife. She was surprised. I had a growing headache and I had assumed it was due to my eyes being dilated. Things came in and out of focus, there was some light blur, and my eyes just felt weird as they tend to do after dilation. We got dinner as my growing headache suggested to just get food and take it home.
The drive home was interesting and I started to wish the wife could have driven both of us. The headlights were all kinds of blurry. I’ve driven while sick and my eyes dilated and in all sorts of conditions. I know how to look away from the the lights, but this just hurt as I drove. My eyes, obviously were taking in too much light. By the time I got home I had a raging headache and I assumed it was from the light into my eyes.
This morning is rained real good. <sigh> Had I been thinking clearly I would have known it was going to rain and taken my ‘good’ sinus medication. I could have avoided a debilitating headache and actually gotten some words written. As it stands, I wrote no nanowrimo words yesterday. Do I feel bad? No. I was a day ahead already. I probably could have gotten something written, but I feel much better having hit the hay early and woke up with a clear head and the sound of rain on the rooftop.
Today is a new day. I may have missed a day, but I’ll more than make up for it today! BRING IT ON! Woo!
I’m off to get the day job out of the way, then look out!
