Never has a project of this size been attempted and there are so many things to consider and organise. Yes I'm doing more communications work but there's still so much administration work to do and a new person to train (and she's doing an awesome job) but I can still see myself enmeshed in this role for a while to come yet.
Yesterday 25C and the warmest August day on record in Adelaide, today non-stop rain and back to 16C. Crazy days with crazy weather patterns. Wet weather brings out the loons on the road, so my normal 25 minute drive to work this morning took 45 minutes which was a great start to the day - not!
After work I took myself off to the optometrist for an eye check up and to order more contact lenses and all I got for my efforts was a smack on the wrist because my left cornea is swollen and my eyes aren't getting enough oxygen - arrrgggh!
Staring at a computer screen for hours on end and straining my brain trying to work out unknowns is probably not helping. So two days of wearing my glasses and another check up before he'll let me order more contacts. Not happy!
It's days like these when my positive thinking is truly tested and I just want to curl up and sleep for a week. Tomorrow is another day though and the last day of the week, so onward and upward.
When your eyes are tired the world is tired also. When your vision has gone no part of the world can find you. Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognize its own ~ David Whyte
