About a year ago I misplaced my glasses. They were a pretty nice pair, prescribed to me by an eye doctor. Now it seems easy to think I could just call up said doctor, make an appointment and get a new pair, right? Well, I did this and found out upon arrival that the doctor does not take our insurance anymore. Who drops people's insurance? Anyway, I put off finding a new doctor thinking I had plenty of time, meanwhile, squinting my way at the grocery store, reading the backs of food labels, etc. Then I got pregnant and with the funky hormones, etc, figured I should wait until it was over to make sure I got the right prescription glasses. Well, now, I'm too busy and can barely get away for my regular appointments, let alone, trying to find a new eye doctor.
So a few weeks ago, I managed to get out of the house. Where did I go? COSTCO. Yep, my big afternoon out and I went to get food. Oh boy! But, it was great. And while I was shopping I saw this stand of eyeglasses. The makers let you peer into lenses and read words behind each "pair" to help you figure out what strength you need. I selected a pair and now I can finally see all kinds of things. Especially Dear Bebe. Doesn't that sound terrible??? It's not that I am completely blind, because I can see things at a distance, but it sure does help to see your baby up close!
They say when you turn 40 your eyes start to go, but I think this started about 5 years ago. While I can see clearer now... I can also see I am being defined by my latest accessory...reading glasses. Maybe I should get the more popular and fashionable Sarah Palin frames and turn what appears to be a negative into a positive. Either that or a piece of jewelry.
