I've been missing for a few days... what have I been up to?

I've spent much of my week working on two books for a dear old friend who had a baby of her own AND adopted one at the same time! She just brought the adopted baby back from Vietnam and he is adorable but tiny for being a year old already! I'm creating 2 separate books for them! It's hard for me to do without pictures so I really have to be creative! I'm trying to keep each of them unique! I'd really love to finish them up this weekend and get them shipped off before the boys start school!!!

I just bought study guides for taking the Professional Human Resources (PHR) certification test, so I'm starting to work on that. I will be taking the test sometime in June (I hope). The testing window is from May 1st to June 30th and I still need to schedule the test, but hopefully the later the better! With 20 years of experience, I hope it will work for me when it comes time to test. I'm not very good at these kinds of tests, so hopefully I'll do OK. I tried it 10 years ago and failed and as you can tell, it's taken me that long to try again!

Last week I had laser surgery on my eyes to remove the film that built up on my lenses after my cataract surgery several years ago. I went back to the doctor this week and he confirmed a nice improvement in my right eye (well all relative to being blind) and little improvement in my left eye. Since I'm still struggling with small numbers (I work with them all day long), I asked for stronger reading glasses. I ordered them and hope to see them in the next week or so. I'm still blind (really, I am legally!), but at least don't need a cane - YET!

Last weekend we went skiing yet again - to Beaver Creek! That was day #18 for me this season! It was fun, but we were dealing with "dust on crust"! Unfortunately on Tuesday they got a dumping, which once again we missed. I don't think we're going to go up this weekend - we need a rest. I'm sure we'll get a few more days in this year!

Well, that's my boring life! Back soon with some pictures of my baby albums?!

Glad to hear the surgery was at least partially successful. It is amazing what you do being legally blind! It must be your determination and great attitude.

You've been busy :) I bet you'll do a fantastic job on the test, especially with all that experience you've built up. I bet you can't wait for those new glasses!

I'm glad you've had some success with the surgery. I'd hate for you to go through all that and not see any changes at all!
Would love to see the books when you finish!
Ski season is DONE here - we've hit 50's over the weekend & are expecting mid 60's by Tuesday!
Yeah - it's been a long, long, winter!
