I went for my annual eye exam especially since my plans for lasik have been put on hold till later this years. I got my new prescription but what was kinda cool is I’ve decided to go with contacts and reading glasses. The cool part isn’t that, its that he had contacts in my prescription right there. He gave them to me, I popped them in and I could see. I haven’t worn contacts in years now but it was just like riding a bike. plop plop in my eyes they went. I did accidently leave the bag with my solution and old lenses there. I didn’t discover this until later on that evening, after Mike and I had gone for Thai food – mmmm Thai food!!! and I went to go take my new eyes out. I flipped out a bit because I didn’t have any glasses to wear. I’m blind as a blind bat not just your ordinary variety and it freaked me a bit that I wouldn’t have my glasses with me. Fortunately I kept the glasses I used to use and so was able to wear them. I called the doctors office and they had my bag there. I’ll go pick it up later tonight after work.

tomorrow I start working out at the gym I joined last week. I was sick last week and so I didn’t feel up to it. I have a routine now and am looking forward to losing the weight. My goal is to lose 45 pounds total. I’m 6′ now and weigh 247 as of this morning. I’m a big guy but by most accounts I don’t look overweight, husky is the word most often used. Time to wrap things up here.
