Since I didn't blog today, I shall Vlog!

Quitting smoking was not an easy task for me and I am sure not for anyone else who has quit. For those of you trying, I would love to offer any encouragement or advice that I can. Trust me, I remember being a smoker and I KNOW it's not that easy.

Also, I had my lovely eye exam this week. Oh, I cannot wait for you to hear about this trip and all the eye make-up I encountered.

Enjoy.

Sounds like those nurses look like they've been attacked by a Ninjabetic!
I HATE ANNUAL EYE DILATION DAY! And that pressure pen, ugh!! Good job on the 2 years of no smoking! Whoo hoo!

Wow! I've never heard of that pressure pen thing. I'm glad you warned us about it - just in case they do that at my next exam. Congratulations on the good eye doctor visit!

Ohmygoodness that's TERRIFYING. A PEN!? George! No!

I love the eye makeup gesticulation, though.

Wonderful, silly and informative, with a Ninja like twist that is just part of the fabulousness of being you!
The pen thingy sounded creepy!

Continue breath free G- Ninja!

Awesome stuff man.

I recently had the "pen" thing too. The doc said it was some sort of ultrasound thing that could actually measure the thickness of the cornea (did I spell that right?) which is factored in to the pressure test stuff...

Sounded like the office was run by a bunch of racoons! LOL!!

Yikes..anything pen like near my eye would freak me the heck out! I usually get the gush of air, which I don't like, but beats a sharp pen like contraption in the eye. That'd bring anyone's pressure up...funny.

Glad the eyes are looking good. I have some read spot on my eye that just cropped up today so I shall call the eye doc on tuesday after the holiday--never fun. maybe a burst blood vessel? I dunno...but it is bothering me a bit. I always get so paranoid about my eyes, but I am happy to hear you are home free for another year!

Thanks for another vlog! :)

Hey George

Good to see you. Thanks about the pen warning. I'll keep an eye out for it! :-;

I just realized the blue light thing is clearly the symbol for World Diabetes Day. That's why it's blue. I should have realized sooner.

Happy back to school week. I hope all the family endures through it (I'm not looking forward to waking the children tomorrow before 6:30)!
