Another Shot in the Eye

Yesterday was a wonderful day.  I heard from so many wonderful people and I thank each and every one.  Thanks for the up date, Niki. I enjoyed you day out almost as much as you did.  Holly the flowers are beautiful so I will enjoy those for many days.  Shanti, love my movies- Who needs cable when you have Netflix?  Thank you again.  Now it is back to earth.  Today was Norman’s shot in the eye day.  He has been getting this shot for macular degeneration for 3 or 4 years now but it is not something you ever get used to.  It does take quite a bit out of him and me too.  We left here at 8:45 and never got back home until 12:45.  the drive over to the doctor is about an hour and a half, then there is a hour to hour and a half waiting at the doctor’s for the shot, then the drive back.  Norman does all the driving and I help with the lights on the way so it does take a little longer to come back.  Now he is taking a nap and I will also I guess.  It takes the rest of the week to get back to normal after the shot but it is worth it as long as it is saving the sight in that eye. This after noon I hope to finish Gina’s bed jacket.  Then I can take a picture and show you.  For now I will just wish you a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.

    I hope you and Norman both had a good rest. That still chills me but so good that it saves his sight. No one wants to lose that. A Happy late Birthday to you!

    • Thank you, Rosemary. We have had a good rest and will be ready to go back to work tomorrow. We stopped in to Walmarts on the way home and got three nice looking cabbages. Tomorrow we will make a new batch of sauerkraut. Next year we will plant a lot more cabbages ourselves, I find all the kids love the sauerkraut and I never knew it. Carol
