Seeing What's in Front of My Face
Book Deals and a Survey
By second grade, I was that kid with the thick eyeglasses. The one you either felt sorry for or made fun of.
By sixth grade, I was told I would go blind. Not blind as in blackness all around me, but in so blurry I couldn’t clearly see my hand in front of my face—literally.
Thank goodness I was born in this era. I was put in contacts at twelve, something that rarely happened at the time. That alone changed by world. No heavy glasses! And I could see better than I ever had.
I did eventually go legally blind—way past it, in fact. Ten times past it. But with contacts, I could live my life like everyone else.
Because of my eye condition, I was at risk for early cataracts. And of course, that happened. But while I in no way enjoy surgery, the doctor is using the opportunity to give me a kind of vision I had only dreamt of.
I had the surgery on my left eye last week and just that one newly inserted lens it is amazing! I feel as though I have bionic eyes, like that old show. lol.
Tomorrow is time for the right eye. Nervous? Yes, always when it comes to medical stuff. But TWO NEW EYES!
I’m not sure I can handle the excitement.
The doc said it would be life changing for me. I can only say that was an understatement.
The last survey was: Do you think What Used to be Texas should have more monsters? Or more homesteading?
The results are: More monsters and thrilling things 15%
More homesteading 38%
I like the story the way it is 46%
So most think I’m on the right track, some would like a little more of one or the other. I’m almost done with book 2 What Used to be Arkansas, and it is a more thrilling book. But for book 3, I’ll make sure to stick a little bit more of the homesteading in there. :)
What I’m Reading . . .
Broken Lines by James Hunt
If you haven’t read James Hunt, I highly recommend you do. He has a ton of books and sometimes even partners with other post-apocalyptic writers.
This particular book starts in Pittsburgh with an EMP. The neighborhood quickly turns on each other. Our main family, along with a friend head to their cabin in Ohio. Nothing goes as planned, and they get split up. Some think others are dead. Some major injuries and events happen. It’s all very exciting. Just as a warning, there is violence against women in this book. Most of it is kept off page.
This is a series of 37 books! This is the first one I’ve read, but it seems as if each book is about a different family. Book 1 is $3.99 and is also in Kindle Unlimited.
