So here's a picture of me with my newest accessory. I can't say that I LOVE these 'girls', but they're necessary. I think the frames are cute....they're made by 'Candies' , but.............I'm just so stinkin' blind! When you're as blind as I am, it's so much harder to see well with glasses compared to contacts, which I've worn constantly since I was 12. I have no depth perception, and very little peripheral vision. The other day I pulled into a parking stall at JoAnn's crafts. I thought I did a great job parking, but when I got out of my car, I soon realized the lady next to me had about 4 inches to open her car door to squeeze her baby out. I decided to jump back in my car and try again........didn't do much better the second time! (Normally I'm a pro at parking:)
Anyway, you may wonder why I'm choosing to wear glasses. It's because I'm getting ready to have Lasik surgery done. I am SOOOO excited. I have dreamt about it ever since it has become popular. But it was always a matter of money, and more recently a matter of inconvenience. But I'm doing it this time, and I can hardly wait. For any of you who have never seen Lasik done, I'll post the surgery on my blog. I guess they take a video for you as a keepsake! Yeah. I do feel very lucky that I get to have this done! If there was a house fire, or some other type of emergency, and I didn't have glasses or contacts, I'd be out of luck. There's no way I could see to help me or my family!
So if you live close, and see my van on the street, you may just want to watch out or pull to the side of the road................at least until I get my surgery done!
(This isn't the best pic, our 8 year old is the newest photographer in the family. She got a camera for her birthday, and there's more shots of me taken than I really care for. Me in bed, me first thing in the morning cleaning the kitchen, and lots of my backside. It's tons of fun!)
