As the title suggests, I have had a lot of ups and downs this week.
I have worn glasses since I was about 8 and contacts since I was 13. I have been interested in Lasik for over 10 years. Now that I am finally in a financially stable position to afford it, I decided to take the plunge and scheduled my consultation exam!
I went in on Friday, and after going through all the tests, I was told that I was a good candidate for the procedure, except... there seems to be a small spot of congenital cataracts in the same place, symmetrically, in each of my eyes.
I thought that was kindof odd, since during all the years and years of eye exams I have had, nobody, not once, mentioned anything about cataracts to me. I talked to my mom, though, and she vaguely remembers something from when I was born that they mentioned it was possible. However, at the time, they were more concerned over the heart murmur from the hole in my heart since I was so premature.
So, I can't have Lasik, and I've been depressed all weekend because of it, since it is something I have been looking forward to for so long.
There, now that the depressing sad news is out of the way, I also had a good thing this weekend. I took (and passed) the first exam for a certification I am getting for the day job.
Yes, this first test is the easy one, and the next one will be much much harder, but that's just one more thing out of the way and passed. I have already started studying for this next test, and I have a feeling that studying will take up some (not all, of course) of my stitchy time.
Speaking of stitchy time, let's get back to the reason for my blog. Crafty updates!
I have been working on Candy Cane Christmas a lot more. I'm about 60% through it now, and done with page one!
Here is where I left off last:
