While cleaning up and pruning the dead hedges that we lost to hard freezes this winter, a piece of branch flew off and hit me right in the eyeball. My vision got cloudy and I’ve got a very red eye.

David ran me to the «eye doctor», which is just a couple of blocks away, and Dr. Ong was able to see me quickly (and for $30). He checked my eyeball out and fortunately it’s just a bad bruise, no tears or other damage. I have to wear my glasses for a week and use some eyedrops to make sure I don’t get an infection, but I’m none the worse for wear.

I will be buying, however, eye protection goggles at Ace Hardware tomorrow.
