March 2009: In Brief

Highlights:
The Allergy Shots Are Working!
Yay! Yay! Yay!  The real test comes this April.  Still, it was fantastic having a clear head and plenty of energy in March.

2 Family Dinners–  The good thing about staying in my family’s "home town" is that the more adventurous family members come back frequently.  So I can be a homebody and still have fun family dinners with my dad and sibs.

SCBWI Westminster Conference–  There was the usual helpful/inspiring information, a chance to hang with fun people, and even a presentation on the Library of Congress’s cool website, plus, conference cookies.

Driving Glasses– I read so many books and blogs I’ve changed my distance vision.  So far, my plan to only wear my glasses for driving is working.  Life is eerily clear when I drive and happily misty-and-water-colored when I don’t.  Luckily I don’t drive very often.

  1. That’s awesome news about the allergy shots! *crosses fingers for April*

    Life is eerily clear when I drive and happily misty-and-water-colored when I don’t. Luckily I don’t drive very often.

    Hmmm… maybe I wear my glasses too often. =D

  2. If you continue down the vision path of your younger sister you can have all of life look like an impressionist painting without contact/glasses. Since my vision is only in focus for about 12 inches without correction, I wear contact/glasses most of the time and don’t leave my house without them. Now my close up vision is going too (very unfair). Have more trouble reading in low light and small print, so have broken down and got reading glasses, Pretty much now with out correction I have no good vision now.

    Impressive you made it so long without glasses, even with contact I can no longer get to 20/20 anymore, reading street signs always a struggle. I love the new clear focus feeling, and being able to see better whenever I get my new prescription of contacts. My last upgrade was a said one, I am now out of typical range for vision correction, and they do not keep mine level in stock at the store, they have to be order always now.

    Hope April is a good allergy month.

  3. Big Bang Theory

    I came across this on the little tv on my KLM flight and it looked good. Since it’s got your vote I think I’ll adopt it as my new series. And I’m happy to hear that the allergy shots made a difference! -(Erika)
