Blindness? Death?

Happy Friday, folks!  This is just a very quick check-in to say that I weighed in today and lost 3 pounds.  This takes me down to a whopping....oh, damn it.  I just still can't write that number!  Instead, I'll leave you with a few pictures from vacation last week.  We were snowshoeing up to a point called Artist's Bluff in Franconia Notch in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  This hike is just enough to get the heart pumping in the spring, summer, and fall...but in the winter on a pair of snowshoes it's WORK!  And it was a great time.  :)

That's pretty much a 45 degree angle.  (I was a physics minor...I'm not exaggerating!)

See that rock up there?  That's the high point, and that's where we eventually ended up.

Hubs took this picture.  Snowshoeing this really was a fun time.

And the view is ALWAYS worth it.  :)

In other news, my eye is STILL blurry.  I went to the ophthalmologist for a follow-up yesterday and he said, "Yeah, that's definitely not a corneal abrasion.  I don't know what it is, but it's definitely not that.  You'll see our corneal specialist next week."

Boy, when someone is talking about your eye, you really don't want to hear them say "I don't know what it is".  LOL  Ah well...nothing to do but wait until Wednesday to see the specialist and hope I don't go blind or die before then.

Enjoy the weekend!!!  :)

How is it that you're actually heavier than me (at least you were back when you were posting your weight!) but you LOOK so much thinner. Must be the age thing ... I'm old enough to be your mamma and haven't exercised in years. I envy your fitness level!

Barbara, I appreciate the compliment, but don't give yourself such a hard time! :)

I've been told I carry my weight well. That expression kind of bugs me, but whatever. The only explanation I have for is it that I've been active my whole life, and I weight trained throughout high school, college, and most of medical school. That's the only thing I can think of that's led to it.

You may be old enough to be my mama, and you may not have exercised in a while, but you can always start again! And you look great for your age! :)

BEAUTIFUL pictures! I would love try snowshoeing sometime soon.

Congrats on losing 3 lbs! That's awesome!

I'm also one of the "lucky" ones who is told I "carry my weight well." I feel the same way about it...

I hope your eye quits acting a fool and they find out what it is so they can fix it!

Well I know exactly what the hell happened to MY own eyes 2 weeks ago... LASIK with a microkeratome came in and sliced off the top of my corneas, julienne-style before the 150 nm Excimer laser came in and did the rest of the job. My vision still has its ins and outs, but things are looking better.

Jesus, I hope you didn't do yourself some great injury--just how fast did you stoop down to adjust your strap when that stick found its way into your ocular cavity?

The view over there in the White Mountains looks wonderful! Glad you could get outdoors to enjoy it! No snow here--ever!
