tired...bummed out... scattered... I keep trying to get here and post stuff but I'm not doing so well. haven't played Sims 2 or FF online... haven't checked email or done my usual round of online friends and sites.... dyed my green streaks in my hair again.... went to an early Halloween party as a Kitty Faerie... got my fancy candle stand and candle in from Kari.... been watching Black Books with Juan.... I've been sitting here in a daze mostly, switching the tv to various comfort programs but not really paying attention... mostly been numbly playing on neopets all day... at least I'm making points at the games....

Well I went to the eye dr Tuesday, and finally think we are bound to make some progress. Now that they've done everything wrong with my contacts, I got them to LISTEN this time when I explained, AGAIN... that my current contacts that more or less fit on my eye so my pupil is covered by the corrective lens ARE INDEED LARGER in diameter than standard!! I told them this at the first visit... and the second... and the third... so finally on the FOURTH visit... they listened... and checked the records... and how about that! I'm right! O-o So the new contacts are an attempt to get the FIT correct only... and then I'll most likely be due for yet another appointment to get the prescription right, if the fit works out. I hope it does!!! Also, since I couldn't see out of my glasses which were made using the FIRST incorrect prescription... they worked with heavy painful old fashioned instruments of torture to manually change out heavy glass lenses layered in huge metal frames... sort of a scary looking contraption! Plus, every time he had to push one of the lenses to get it fitted in it HURT as he was pressing it into my face without regard for the pressure! O-o So I was glad when THAT was over! Also very glad modern glasses are much lighter than that! It seemed to weigh about the same as a two liter... on my FACE! Then we went to Wal-Mart, ad that was where I had my glasses made from the old prescription... and the lady there was wonderful to let us trade in the credit from the old glasses for the new prescription to be filled, even though it was past the 30 day limit of their policy!! ^-^ Plus, she let me KEEP the old glasses till the new ones come in!!! Amazing!! We just have to be sure to bring them in to trade for the new ones.
Juan and I have mostly more or less gotten over the sore throats and near colds we seemed to have come down with this past weekend, which kept us from making it to the Tailgate Party. >-< I feel bad we didn't get to make it to that, didn't get to see Craig, and didn't get to do something social like that with Juan's younger brother who is stand-offish of me. >-<
Tuesday after all the eye care errands we went by the restaraunt and had dinner there, and got lucky and Rick and Mary and our nephews came in for dinner too!! This Sunday is a birthday party for the oldest Nephew, I think he'll be 11! Time flies!! O-o I'm wondering if we can juggle the budget any to get him something Yu-gi-oh! or otherwise Anime related.... ^-^
I got to play Final Fantasy twice this week, which is great since for a while there it was once a week at the most, what with everything else going on! ^-^ I'm working on my first sub-job, so now I'm a Warrior for my main job and Thief is the secondary, and is only set at 1/2 the level of what I've made it to as a Warrior... it's a little confusing for me, but I've made it to level 10 as a Warrior so up to level 5 of my Thief skills are available to me... I think. ^-^ I had quite a time getting to level 10 and then NOT GETTING KILLED and losing the level! I went back down to level 9 three or four times!!! O-o So I'm happy to be about halfway to level 11 now. I headed for the Dunes to start leveling in a party again... and was invited into a party... but the other party member who let me follow him got me KILLED in the Dunes before we got to the rest of the members! >-< I was a good shield for him though, he survived and got away!! So the leader of the party came and stood by my prone body lying senseless in the sand... and he offered anyone money to Raise me... but for a while it looked like no one was around with that skill. Then two Tarutarus showed up, Mowiezowie and Tausa... and suddenly my party leader was being attacked by a gob and HE died too!! O-o The tarutarus survived and raised BOTH of us... they were leading us to find me a place nearby to set my home point... when another party member and I got killed AGAIN! So... they raised us again... led us some more... and I got ANOTHER goblin's interest... so dead again... sigh. So they raised AGAIN... and at that point I'm not sure if I died one more time, just for the fun of it... but after that they started casting TONS of stuff on both me and the other party member who was sticking with me... they even cast Sneak and Invisible on us trying to save us from those pesky goblins and then we RAN like the wind... and stuff tried to attack us as the spells wore off but Tausa attacked the goblins first that time while we ran!! I was NEVER so happy to make it to a home point and get it set!! Juan was laughing with me hysterically as I kept dying on the run, it was ridiculous!!! ^-^ What's funny but sad was, once I set my home point, my original party was scattered, and the other party member found a new party with a couple of the old members, so we said our goodbyes and I went to look for the rest of the party, but they'd filled up with new members too. Then the game server gave a message that it was all about to have an emergency shut down so we all had to log out anyway!
I'm awake WAY too early this morning, I've only had about 4 hours sleep but I can't fall back asleep even lying there almost an hour, so I'm thinking after finally blogging all this I'll read a while and see if I end up staying up all day, or taking a nap. Hopefully I can get a nap in and be up for getting to visit with Celleigh this afternoon, we were trying to get together for a day of Sims Bustin Out so I can see what that's like. She got in on her gameboy and since I have the adapter to play gameboy games on the tv, we can both see what's going on. ^-^ If I like it enough I might try to save up and get it, but I'm also curious as to whether I might like the new Urbz game that's coming out soon for gameboy too.

I just seem to be having a bit of a rough week even though my pain is much better. >-< I got my new contacts, and they STILL do not fit on my eyeball correctly, and I'm STILL seeing horrible blurrs where the corrective part of the lens is not covering my pupil. Now the new ones have a sort of ring of useless clear non corrective plastic around the actual corrective lens area... and the blurring from that is even worse than the first attempt. Why can't they just take the measurments from my OLD contacts I'm wearing?!?! They fit over my eye to cover the pupil!!! Anyway, I've been pretty distressed about that. >-< Also Ember seems to be sick. I woke up to step in both kitty vomit in the hallway outside the bedroom door, and then a stray "present" in the bathroom where it had missed the litterbox. This made me more annoyed that my glasses don't fit on my face so I can't wear them to see these little surprises all over the hallway and bathroom carpet in the mornings. Poor Ember threw up hairballs and then more thin watery vomit in about 9 other locations, including the dining table where I found her when I fed the cats when I woke up about 2pm. I knew something was REALLY wrong when she wouldn't come to the food dish to eat!! O-o So when Juan got off work early and we went to pick up cat food I picked up some of the wet packet cat food so she can get rehydrated some. We went to Wal-Mart to pick up a couple of household things... like carpet cleaner... and then had dinner at The Restaraunt (Juan's mother's restaraunt) and got to visit with LunaCorn and Yusuke and Angel there... and then we helped them close up and went back to Juan's mother's house to watch Man On Fire with them. We had adventures getting all the settings right on the DVD and VCR and TV... turns out the way it was set up was fine, it was just a loose connection in the back of the DVD player! O-o
We gave Yusuke a ride home and now we're home and have fed the cats... we let Ember stay alone in the bedroom while we were out, and fed her the soft food in there... and my plan is to give her a little time after eating before we let her out for the other cats to harrass... sigh....
I'm really worn out and not sure why I'm so exhausted all the time lately. >-< Tonight at the restaraunt I couldn't remember the word for "taco" and was trying to explain what I wanted to eat... "those things with the meat in them, with the foldy.... tortilla...." O-o
