My eye was a little better this morning and the appointment went good. Some of the things calmed down as I slept so that was a real relief. If I am looking at something at arm’s length I can read somewhat. I came home last night, took my glasses out of my pocket, and I put them in a drawer until I can get them replaced. It will be about a month then I’ll go get a new lens prescription for reading. It is so weird not having glasses on for the last 24 hours. I’ll be curious to see how I see tomorrow morning.

I made a stop at Trader Joe’s while in the area. I had left early in case of traffic so I thought I would swing in and kill a few minutes grabbing some snacks before the appointment. After the appointment I needed to kill a few more minutes since the dog was still getting groomed so I went BACK and got a few frozen things. I think the frozen section is interesting as they have not only a great selection of interesting items, they are also smaller portions and that is a welcomed change. One thing I bought the second trip in was some frozen Hasselbeck potatoes. Thin-sliced potato, crispy on the outside and the inside is oh-so-velvety-smooth. These bad-boys are worth buying in multiples.

TJ’s is a European-owned chain (one of the two Aldi companies owns it) so perhaps that is why the smaller portions/packaging sizes. I like both Aldi and TJ’s but I do wish we had an Aldi close by. I do like smaller physical stores like these two chains have, and along with that is that with the store-branding you are not overwhelmed with choices and it’s not really a bad thing since the items are all really good.

I picked up the dog and I guess he was a bad dog at 4:30 this morning and dealt with the wrath of the groomer lady. I knew he would learn who is boss from her; she’s been doing this a while and don’t take 💩 off of any of the animals. She also had to lay the law down with him when he was getting groomed as well.

It’s been a busy few days recently but I have nothing on the calendar for tomorrow morning so I can hopefully sleep in some. I will probably be calling about storage for the trailer to get that off my to-do list. I’ll be pulling some things out of the trailer since I have nothing else here for kitchen, etc. than what is in the trailer. There is some stuff there so I will see what I need and figure it out. Obviously the less I need to take out the better.

It will be odd having that much room and being in a place again. Things change so it is time to adapt and I need to think about the future and the things going on. I still have Colorado on my mind but I have things here I need to do. It may just end up that I will go back and forth between here and there. Staying put for a bit is fine and it gives me some breathing room for the time being to sort out a few things. I was doing good for a little while, but I think I am now up to 17 or 18 different addresses since 2012. Being fairly stationary the last few years was kind of nice I will say, but I did get to where I was ready to travel and I did take some trips (but you know that).

I just finished watching the series “Long Way Up”. It was just like the other two series but this time it was on electric motorcycles (except the cameraman on a V-twin Harley) and with electric support vehicles. They rode the tip of South America all the way to Los Angeles. It was a good series, but of the three I like “Long Way ’round” the best. It was the first one and they went to some cool places. I think the thing with it was the newness of everything they were trying, especially on a personal level. But in all three series they are going through several foreign countries on one trip, seeing so much and meeting so many along the way. Makes me ready to pack my pack and head to the airport.

I see that the clock says it is now tomorrow so I think I will go to bed. TTFN!
