My eyes were blurry again all day today, and nothing seems to help. Not my new glasses, not eyedrops with antihistimine, not washing them out with water, not even leaving work early and resting them for an hour, though that did seem to help a little. I'm going to have to make an appointment with an eye doctor and see if they can figure out what is causing this and how to stop it. At least I know it isn't diabetes since I had tests done last month to check. This has been happening, on and off, with no apparent cause, for about 7 months. It's really getting to be a drag.

I don't think I'll be able to get an appointment until after the summer, however, since pretty much all of Sweden is on vacation at the moment. I have to make an appointment with the skin doctor again as well because the promised 4-months-of-this-and-your-skin-will-clear-up-forever treatment? Is not living up to its hype. Damn it.

It's funny to give the kids a bath...they still look 'dressed' in their white 'swimsuits'. Tomorrow is their last day of 3 weeks of swim school. Both of them are swimming with ease, diving from the edge and going underwater. Martin has earned a dozen different swim pins, each one for accomplishing some feat such as 100 meter breaststroke. They've had 3 weeks of not very warm, and not very nice, weather, but even in 12C temps and rain they've gone every day, coming home with blue lips and happy smiles.

I've been going through my Books-to-Buy list...it's 5 pages of small, single-spaced type. And there are more on my Amazon Wish List as well though I plan to try and consolidate the two. I suspect that even if I bought them all and read a book a week, it would take me the rest of my life and then some to get through them all, at the rate I keep adding new ones.

Tomorrow is the last day of work before my vacation starts. 3 weeks off, woo hoo! And my brother is coming on August 7th to stay for nearly 3 weeks: BONUS! Though we don't have any big plans to travel anywhere while he's here, we do have my birthday, a trip to the zoo, a baseball game and Malmö Festival on the calendar, among other things.
