I'm going to a new optometrist tomorrow because we have new insurance the office I had been going to isn't covered. At the old office, they had a machine they used to check the back of my eyes, but according to the new place's Web site, I'll have my eyes dilated tomorrow. Great, while I'm on deadline. Sigh. Maybe I'll just take a nap when I get home. Sleep is good for one's health, right?
We writers sit in front of computers so much that having to have corrective lenses is almost a given. I'm not sure I know a single writer who doesn't wear glasses or contacts or had corrective surgery. But because we're writers, we also need to take very good care of our eyes as well as the rest of our bodies. So has it been awhile since you've been to the optometrist? Perhaps it's time for a checkup.
Calorie intake: 1,033.5
Exercise: 35 minutes walking
Steps: Alas, 7,005. Probably because I was in front of the computer cranking out 22 pages today. Did I mention I have to finish two projects by Sept. 1?
