The Long Road

It has been quite the week at work! I was fortunate enough to have worked in the southern office on Monday so I missed the theatrics. I wasn’t thrilled that I had to make the drive in the rain but it wasn’t too bad. There were some spots that were breathtaking. The trees along those windy bends and hills are just stunning, even in the rain. It takes me about 45 minutes to get there, which is okay once in a while but I wouldn’t want to make that drive every day. I prefer my 12-15 minute commute.

I called the Master Optician who works with me on Monday and Tuesday to go over a couple of things and he said you could cut the air with a knife in there. The young doctor had text me earlier so I kind of knew what was going on. There was yelling and crying and then there was quitting and then not quitting. It sounded like a hot mess and I’m glad I wasn’t there.

Tuesday morning the local weather had said “the rain is more of a mist and isn’t showing up on the radar.” I had to drive to the South again and I drove through a couple of monsoon spots. It was raining so hard I had my windshield wipers on high…I thought they were going to fly right off. It had lightened up some by the time I got to the windy road with the lovely trees when Big K called. The office in the South had no power so I could turn around and come back to my normal office. I was in the car for more than an hour on Tuesday but the quick drive home at the end of the day made it worth it.

The energy was still wonky on Tuesday but the fit thrower seemed to have calmed down. Work is work again but she will never recover from what happened on Monday. Her behavior showed her true colors and while the big boss might overlook it….Big K hasn’t and I surely won’t and I wasn’t even there. It was bad. I am not interested in any of the drama…ever.

I have been better about wearing my glasses versus contacts the last week or so. With the weather and the drive on Monday and Tuesday I found it easier to just wear my contacts. I didn’t even think twice about wearing my contacts today and it was a struggle. I was busy and it was hard to read the numbers on the frames and I found myself doing the “arm stretch”.

I struggle with the progressive lenses. Currently I am wearing the new Comfort Max and it is the best out of the bunch….yet, I still find myself taking them off to look at my phone when I am home. I have tried four different progressive lenses this year and the distance was great in all of them but I struggled with the reading.  The modified monovision I use with my contacts isn’t cutting it anymore so I have to do something…maybe I just have to wear the glasses more? Eventually I will figure it out. Lucky for me…I work in this optical world.

We have had four days in a row of cloudy, rainy, depressing weather, thankfully the sun is supposed to make an appearance tomorrow. I need more sun in my life…Zia
