Blind Witch, E-Reader & a chance to get something good!

Monday I was officially diagnosed with a rare eye disorder  which apparently is causing my eyesight to deteriorate rapidly over the next decade to fifteen years. I had 20/20 vision less than 5 years ago but now I have such bad vision that has changed so much in the last 6 months the doctor finally diagnosed me with a genetic disorder. Since I am adopted the docs have been hesitant to diagnose this until I had a few years under my belt of eye loss. (Someone explain the logic in this?)

There was nothing they could do anyway other than giving me guidelines to slow it down or perhaps stop it from going completely till I was a blind witch living in my personal gingerbread cabin…lost somewhere in the woods of Alaska… baking treats for unsuspecting cheechakos … *cackling* umm again I digress.

The actual disorder would be normal if it my eyesight was changing every 2-3 years and if I was 65! NO I am not THAT old! But boy does this scare me! SO, I am trying my best and entering contests because currently my glasses will be costing all the extra money we had saved for my e-reader (which before would have been new shiny thing making  my life easier, but was not necessarily, not like now.  I either go to the library and check out the big print books or I read on an e-reader) and our new car payments because our insurance will not cover the type of lens adjustments I need (rat bastards bureaucrats!) So from now till February 1st, I appeal to all of you! What do you say, take a chance with me (singing Abba for some reason now) to win something even more! If you win, I win a new e-reader. The doctor has forbidden me to read on my iPhone anymore and has limited my computer time to a 5 hours a day!

Now Geoff says it will all be ok because I will be a sexy blind witch and he is just SO ok with that because I will be his blind witch. Now when he says blind witch, I think he is seeing one like the witch from the Gingerbread cottage in this years new ABC hit, Once Upon A Time.

Kriss' Vision of a Blind Witch

I tend to see a witch resembling the one from the first episode with her eyes sewn shut looking like I probably would when I couldn’t see myself to fix the nightmare that my pillows tend to wreck upon me at night while I sleep!

A good friend told me that the power of positive thinking can go a long way, so as long as I am doing that, as long as I keep reading and writing, even if I have to buy Dragonspeak or dictate to the man-beast, I will be fine! SO no worrying, but I had to give you a reason as to why I am sharing this contest with you today. I can assure you this is legitimate. I have followed the hostesses blog for a while, plus I have known folks that have won, so there is no worries on that! SO WHAT do you have to lose!!?? OK, back to your regular program of  bacon, baking, cookies and Alaska!!!

  1. Kriss, your spirit is amazing!

    • awwww Wendi, sniffle… WHAT are you doing up still? This is my status quo, I seem to ALWAYS be up.. THANK YOU.. what else can you do right? IF I do go blind, by the time I do they probably will have some cool think like Jordi wore in Star Trek The Next Gen!

  2. That is so unfair. Your response is so amazing. In awe here. Cathy x
