The last few days I have been experiencing an eye problem which might be allergy related or something else. Just in one eye but at times the swelling makes the lid hang over the eye and seeing gets a little weird. Strangest thing is no itching although it is red as could be. No discharge so no infection. But every morning is way swollen until I am standing up for awhile.
So my mood has not been great the last few days. And I think the antibiotic makes me tired. But have been busy sorting things. Did you know Staples takes back and recycles electronics. Including old phones etc. Took a trunk load over on Friday.
Grant season is over which is good. Just have to wait for my checks to come in. I really like reviewing the grants. Keeps me up to date on current strategies which I like. Next year I guess I will be doing more grants..
Soon I will be up in my little house which will be wonderful. I love the peace and quiet up there. NO TV allowed. Should be a fine time.
