Let me tell you about a little story that could have ended badly. My mother went to the hospital earlier this week to check her eyes. She went in thinking she had cataracts but when they had another look they told her it was glaucoma. They told her they had to laser her eyes right there! After the proceedure she waited for half hour before she could drive home. The next day she went to work feeling a little pain in the eyes. The pain got worse and she had to leave early. It got so bad by the next day and when she could hardly see, she called the hospital. They told her to come back.
When she got there another doctor looked at her eyes. He then asked if she was taking the drops they gave her. "What drops?" she asked. He asked again in disbelief, "they didn't give you any drops?" "No, nothing and I even asked if there was something I should do after the laser treatment" she said.
***Can you spell LAWSUIT****????? WTF, (I don't even swear but it has to be said) what were they thinking??? It turns out because they neglected to give her the drops she had gotten a major eye infection.
They gave my mother a prescription for drops with steroids in it and thankfully, it has been getting better!
So beware people, always read up a little on whatever they(doctors) say you have so that you have a little knowledge and can ask questions that may REMIND some doctor to treat you right!
***my mom won't sue, but I told her to document everything, I guess I just did that for her***

Okay so those aren't the exact words to the song, and I just butchered it. While most people have gone away camping this week-end (it's a holiday weekend for us Canucks), we found ourselves in our back yard in front of our ghetto fire pit. Watching the fire dance is very mesmerizing and magical. I sat there staring without even speaking. The crackling and hissing were music to my ears.
The fire kept the bugs at bay and the chill off my spine. We would have roasted marshmallows, only I forgot to buy some and the ones we had were rock hard.

Being home today I was finally able to set up my other computer in my new studio via a wireless router connection - whoo hoo!! Anyone that knows me knows I am totally binary when it comes to computers. I may be a phone tech but computers really challenge me. So I'm sitting here in the comfort of my sewing room updating my blog - how cool is that!?!

I seem to be getting these cool looking white things. I was told they are called Milk Glass by a friend who actually collects them - who knew! I love how retro looking they are. I was attracted to the clean lines and the white just seems to pop against whatever colour your put them against. These will be in my new sewing room. I may put soil and plant some grass or Jade in them. Whatever I do they will look awesome against my turquoise blue walls - if they ever get painted by that husband of mine. I can't wait to see what else I find while thrifting.
