What’s crackin’ kids? Today is gonna be brief.
My posting schedule isn’t quite the consistent five days a week it used to be, and you might have noticed that it sometimes takes me a couple days to respond to comments. You may also have noticed, if you have a blog, that I am not my usual comment-y self. It isn’t from laziness, I assure you.
I think I posted about my wonky eyes once or twice in the past. In a nutshell, the muscles behind my eyes have deteriorated significantly over time, and it has gotten to the point where they are constantly and painfully stressed. So, I have taken to rationing my reading and writing, which is why I’m MIA as a commenter for a week at a time, and then suddenly show up and reply to four posts in a row. As a writer and avid reader, it sucks hard. There are a number of craptastic issues, like having to make sure any driving I have to do happens early in the day, because a minimal amount of computer work makes my eyes so out of whack that I no longer feel comfortable driving. I haven’t posted about it because it sounds whiney and woeful and shit, and while it is a pain in the ass, there are worse things.
Why, then, am I writing about it today? Well, because a) tomorrow I am having surgery on my eye muscles, and b) I want you guys to know I’m not a totally lazy schlub that’s fallen behind on my blogroll. Anyway, I’m taking the rest of the week off to recover, so no more posts this week, and I probably won’t be doing much reading (bummer). I am hella freaked out about having a scalpel anywhere near my eyeballs, however, the prospect of getting my peepers fixed is thus far outweighing my anxiety over the surgeon having a sneezing fit while operating.
I will be back Monday y’all!
