The eyeglasses are back with the optician, and a doctor redid the prescription. I wore them yesterday and along with a huge headache the right eye Rx was all wrong. It was like I was cross-eyed when I wore them and the bifocal was set for about six inches in front of my face. I don't know what the first doctor was thinking! I might get them back on Tuesday next week.

The last box for my donation of playbills is being donated today. I need to list the items then take the box up to Special Collections. Last year I didn't have enough deductions to have any savings from my donation (I couldn't top the standard deduction), but this year I can combine last year and this, so hopefully I'll get something back as a refund, or at least not pay taxes. We've lost the kids as deductions on our taxes, now that my son has earned a lot working last summer and will have to file his own taxes. Just in case I'll do the FAFSA form one last time, but he graduates in spring 2014.

Cold weather is coming through again, but I don't think it will freeze till mid-week (just in time for people to drive down for xmas.) Everyone stay warm and safe as you wrap up your preparations for the holidays that you celebrate this time of year!
