Possible Glasses

I went to the eye doctor yesterday. It had been about a year and a half since I went. I've noticed that it's been more difficult to read things farther away lately. He did the eye exam, and said that I have 20/25 to 20/30 vision. I've read that in order to pass the driving test, your vision has to be 20/40. The doctor did give me a prescription for glasses, although he said I should still be find without them, but they might be helpful when driving at night or when my eyes are acting up. Working on the computer and reading are fine without glasses. I asked about how much they would cost, and a pair would be about $130.00. Not too bad, but I'm going to wait for a while to get any. My eyes are fine otherwise, and like the doctor said, I don't need them for reading or working on the computer, and I can drive without any.

Fertile Soil

Well, come spring the soil in the flower bed around my place should be pretty fertile. It's the only place Bea will potty now with the snow! She'll walk on, lick, and eat the snow, but she won't potty on it! She had been using her puppy pad for a couple of days until last night when she finally went in the flower bed! YEAH! Now if she'd just poo outside! I took her for a long walk the other night when it was warmer, but she didn't want to go on the snow. Grrr...stubborn Dachshunds! :)

And on another note...STUPID DES MOINES REGISTER DELIVERY GUY!!!! This morning I was outside with Bea a little before 6:00. I try to make her stay quiet, and if she barks I tell her no. Well, she heard the delivery guy walking, and barked at him. I told her no, but then the delivery guy started barking back at her! I took her straight inside before he walked past my place. I've talked to him before when he's walked by, but the last time we saw him he started barking, too. It just gets Bea worked up, and I don't want to wake everyone else up! So I decided we'd just go inside until he left. What a MORON!
