My eye exam went well enough. My eyes seem to be in this limbo area of being good enough to not quite need bifocals, but also not being able to see detail well up close, or at a distance, anymore. So I’m getting glasses to see at a distance and maybe in a couple of years I’ll start getting bifocals. In the interim I’m going to have to just use magnification lenses if I’m working on something small. It’s annoying, but that’s just life, I guess. There were not any frames I particularly liked but I got a set that I think will not be too annoying. If they become a problem I have the skills to alter them to suit myself after the fact. Not ideal, but what in this world truly is?
In other news I applied for another credit card because so many retailers have dropped Discover recently. I’ve had a very good time using Discover for quite some time, and would just keep using them exclusively if I could, but my hand has been forced. I don’t particularly care for the business practices of Mastercard or Visa, but they functionally control commerce these days. Since I’m trapped at the house to some degree I need to be able to do business and buy things online. I think it’s fair to say that no company has clean hands anymore, so there is little choice but to give in unless you want to live off the grid like some kind of mountain man.
I’ve almost gone back to being able to sleep normally, so hopefully I can begin working on the actual story again before too much longer. Or at the very least do a better job with what I am doing while I try to put my life back in some kind of order. Things are such an absolute disaster, but if I was sleeping I could at least tackle more of it a day instead of shuffling around like a half awake corpse most of the time.
For now I’m tackling one disaster at a time and improving as much as I can when I can.
Anyway, if you feel like supporting my work please see the links above. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you… Monday, I guess. Unless I see you on social media.
