Weekend? All days rolled into one long week. I had left eye cataract surgery on the 10th. and I'm forcing myself to behave the way I was told to. Drops, drops, drops.
I go for the right eye today at 11 so it'll just be more drops. for another few weeks. It sure is hard to do nothing. I have a loyal partner that's following the rules by the book so I'm finding it awkward to be myself. I tend to use rules as rough guidelines and make up the rest myself. Whatever feels comfortable. That's just not working right now but that's the programme when you're married to a teacher (retired).

@thomas1389 Way to go. That surgery is one of the miracles of modern medicine. The old operation would have had you tied down with a couple of sandbags to keep your head from moving. Good that the two eyes are being done in succession--sign of a good, conservative surgeon.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Really wonderful that surgery. Knocked out for the first eye, awake for the second (my choice). Now have 20/20 vision in both eyes. So used to wearing glasses for so many years, got me a pair with plain glass in them. Highly recommend the surgery to anyone that should get it.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

For two weekends in a row, I have been at home since I have been busy working for ten hours a day for almost nine months.
During this time I have done some home repairs, finishing several pending woodworking projects, doing a BBQ on Saturday evenings, reading books, actualizing my Non-Destructive Testing skills.
On Sundays, we went to the church in the mornings and drink some spirits in the evening, after 5 PM.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!

First eye,(left) felt like I had an eye full of crushed glass after surgery for a day. Cleared up in a couple of days. They gave me a drip of happy gas, they called it, to take the edge off as he cut. I never realized it would be so easy. I was talking to him as he was working. I never felt a thing and it was all over in a few minutes. The second one(right) was even easier. In and out, just like that. He did fifteen eyes yesterday. I went to his office for a checkup this morning and everything is good. One more visit to check again next week. I'm seeing detail that I haven't seen for a dog's age. This guy does so much and yet there's never a sign of urgency. Smooth operator.

No pain nerved in the eye. All the sensations come from the lid and tissues surrounding the eye. Sometimes I think some MDs wait a little too long to do the surgery and let patients suffer with dimming vision a little too long.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Saturday morning gave my scheduled woodworking class, and afternoon changed the ceiling fan in my wife's office. What a patience test that was ! I had everything done and found the lights were shutting off after a second of being on ? I took everything apart again to check the wires and found them to be OK. Called a friend who could not figure it out either. Finally picked up the instructions and found the trouble shooting section and just said WOW !!! I took it apart fot nothing !!! it was connected right in the first attempt. New technology has safety features such as; if you use more watts than they recommend, they will shut down automatically !!! So from 3 x 100W bulbs, changed to 3 x 60W bulbs and all is well. Sunday I worked on cleaning and maintaining the pool and cut the grass. I will start my summer vacation tomorrow night and be off for 2 weeks, you should see the list I made of projects to do, I will rest when I go back to work on August 5th.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
