After all the running around I've been doing these last few days I'd been planning on using my new day off (today!) to head to the gym and put in some serious treadmill time. I'm still considering it, but not sure it's a smart thing to do on two hours sleep with unstable blood sugar. On the other hand, it might wake me up and get my digestive track working again.
Today I was originally planning on going to Albuquerque and deal with some more of my son's business. I'm putting that off until Thursday when I have to go in anyway for an appointment with an ophthamologist for Cay. We recently went for eye exams (me a few weeks back, Cay today) and were both referred for more testing. I'm a little put out, because they assumed that because Cay is young that there must be "some other reason" besides focus that she needs bifocals, and wouldn't give her bifocals until she sees a specialist. Of course they are going to start from scratch again (only with MORE testing at MORE cost) because they don't consider records from the PREVIOUS eye doctors. On top of all that, Eye Associates have separate appointments (and billing!) for things that are part of a routine eye exam at our old optometrists at Sandia Vision.
So yesterday we went in for Cay's eye exam (and my peripheral vision exam) and they didn't even look at Cay's near vision adjustment, despite the fact that her wearing bifocals were on her records. After TELLING them, they were going to do the near vision exam with her eyes already dilated (which worsens near vision) then decided not to give her a prescription for glasses until she's seen by a specialist to say why her near vision is bad. She'd already been watched for three years before being given bifocals, and I wore bifocals at her age.
We ended up running out and getting her a $1 pair of reading glasses so she could read her textbooks while waiting (even more) to get glasses.
I am LESS than pleased. And I'm not sure whether to assume that the people we've been seeing most of our lives are incompetent or the ones we saw at Eye Associates are... but I know which way I'm leaning.
(eye exam rant over...)
Today I want to feel powerful, happy and energized... which I feel after a good workout at the gym. Right now I feel tired, overheated, and a little nauseous... which makes it less likely that I'll actually go to the gym. It's another of those days where I wonder if I should just push past it, or give my body a break.
