Reading Glasses

This afternoon I went to the eye doctor for the very first time every. If you remember a few weeks ago I told you all how I have been straining to read reports at work and I have to be closer to signs to read them than I used to be.

Well it seems I do need reading glasses! The doc said they should get rid of all the headaches I've been getting at work and that I should also wear them at night when I'm driving but I don't need to wear them all the time.

It was very weird sitting there picking out a pair of glasses. I have always had problems finding sunglasses that look right but this was 10 times harder. In the end I ended up going with the first pair I tried on and I do like them. They were very comfortable. They are all metal frames with springs in the sides and they seemed to be more sturdy than some of the ones I tried on which is very important since I have two little ones.

So in a week I will be sporting my brand new reading glasses! I promises I will post a picture of me in them so you can all see me.

Why do I feel excited for you? Isn't that the kind of thing that in 7th grade, I would feel miserable along with you? I'm with Em... glasses are cool and HOT! Can't wait to see them. - TIf

Yeah ~ I had this happen to me this fall. I'm in the same boat ... wear them for the computer, reading and driving but don't need them all the time. I mean come on ~ that's pretty much my life in a nut shell.
