So back to the eye test. I was very brave (or foolish) to book an eye test appointment at 7am on a vacation day!
I had the test... all is well...no glasses yet!
So on my way home I decided to check that the driveway to the farm that we rent out for our Uncle was accessible. I needed to do this as I had to winterize the farm (not the drive) as we could not find any suitable tenants, hence the driveway of half a mile long was not plowed and the house was frigid as there had been no heat for over 3 months!
I drove down the driveway rather proud of myself in my 4 wheel drive car called Bluebell until I hit the snow drift that of course was not visible to the blind eye...(especially ones that had just been dilated & had blurred vision!)
Needless to say I was stuck & going nowhere.
I had to dig out each wheel and then reverse a little which was exhausting. Oh yes, Mother Nature was there blowing the loose snow all over me & dropping her temperatures rather rapidly the old cow!
I called Sir L who talked me (not wanting to get out of bed as it was only 8.30am!) through the whole procedure.
I have to admit I that did admit defeat at one stage and kicked my poor Bluebell and had a good cry so my vision was even worse!
An hour later I was out, but then I had to go back in an hour to show the house! I parked on the road and walked down the drive this time!
My new name...Survivor Chick!
