Yesterday I attended a business writing class. I have to say I really enjoyed it! It was kind of a refresher on proper sentence construction and all things grammatical; dangling participles, split infinitives, use of semi-colons versus a colon, idioms versus jargon, singular possessives versus plural. Good stuff. I have always had a fascination with the English language and am always amazed at all the rules then all the exception to the rules. I am a big fan of the ellipses and use them often in my writing and was reminded yesterday they are really only for when material is missing.....oh well!!
I have been struggling the last couple weeks with a stye on my eye. I know I've had them before but the only way I knew I had them was to glimpse them in the mirror. This time for several days before I saw it my eyes gave me grief. Once I saw I had one it seemed to be on the mend but I still visited the eye doctor because I wasn't sure. She gave me a prescription for some ointment to use but I didn't fill the prescription because I thought it was going away. A few days later it was back with a vengeance so I started using the ointment. Thankfully it was only in one eye because the ointment renders you virtually blind. My vision in that eye would be so blurry I couldn't identify a person six feet ahead of me. Let along a computer screen. Last week was quite miserable trying to work with one eye so completely out of focus and then it strains your other eye. Have I mentioned getting old sucks?
On another note, today is the 4th anniversary of my mom's death. Hard to believe. I don't think I'll ever forget that day.
Funny how I just brushed up on my writing skills and then I publish the most disjointed entry ever.
