Woo Hoo...What a Ride!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well -preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!" I cannot take credit for this quote, but I like it a lot! I wish I had said it, but since I didn't I am going to borrow it and continue to live exactly this way.

To make this ride a little smoother, I hope, I took the plunge yesterday and had a CK (conductive kerotoplasty) on one eye. It's a relatively new procedure for aging eyes that will permit me to get rid of the glasses!!! Even yesterday after the procedure, I was reading things that I couldn't read without glasses just a few minutes before. There was no pain involved, but today has been quite uncomfortable at times. My vision is blurred, but will continue to improve over the next couple of weeks...I hope!! None of this stopped me from going to my golf lesson yesterday afternoon or playing 18 holes today before going to a meeting concerning a bridal shower for which I am a hostess. I had trouble seeing the golf ball today, but the ladies with whom I was playing were very accommodating. I shot a 114, which, for me, is not a bad score. I've done worse!!!
