Looking around my house simply depressed me. It was getting so gray! The blue walls had faded a dull bluish-gray. The furniture, TV and everything looked like it had ten layers of dust. I would definitely have to do a “deep cleaning”. But before tackling that task I needed to go to the big city and keep my appointment with the eye doctor to get one of my cataracts removed. Then I could come home and get busy cleaning!
Yesterday my cataract was removed. What a difference a day makes! I went into surgery thinking I had on a gray t-shirt and came out of surgery only to see it had turned purple!! The next day I would keep experimenting with this newfound bright world by covering my newly-operated-on-cataract-free eye and noting how everything had a grayish, dirty pall to it. And, upon uncovering my good eye everything was SO much brighter! Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to get home to see how things would look.
The first things I noticed were the picture on the TV set had vivid colors and my computer had the whitest of white background (before it was a grayish yellow color). As I took everything in with my cataract-free eye, the blue walls, the furniture, my husband (no, only kidding) -all looked unbelievably bright! I am So glad I didn’t start my “deep cleaning” until I had my eye done! But, I think it behooves me to wait a little whiler longer to have my other eye done – who knows, maybe I’ll be able to wait even longer to clean my house! 🙂
