In Disbelief


Lately, I have been squinting a lot and having a little eye strain. When needlepointing last weekend, I swear I couldn't see the holes! My jewelry making has been slowed down a bit by my eyes as well, needing to take more frequent breaks. I remembered that my Dad use to leave a pair of glasses in a silver bowl on a shelf in my cottage so when he and my Mom would come back to visit, they always had a pair of glasses there. Well, they officially became mine last weekend and today, I went out and bought my first pair of "readers". I am still in shock. My parents used to buy them at costso and leave them in every room in the house and I used to laugh at how blind they were. Not laughing anymore.

I guess I am getting old. Three weeks ago, I started going to a new dermatologist, this one has a fancy office. She prescribed a new treatment for my skin called Tazorac. It seems like a newer version of Retin-A but with loads of anti-aging components. I can already tell a huge difference in my skin, even though it is still in the mini-peel stage. So in 3 months, my skin will make me look much younger but my readers will still give my age away!!!

KP-- My opto already told me "cheaters" as I call them are in my near future. Don't feel bad friend...I look forward to losing them and finding them on my head for years to come. :)

Check out Eyebobs. They are the coolest readers ever. I have two pair of 'em.

I've been wearing them for awhile, but finally got a pair I feel comfortable doing needlepoint with. My eyes are no longer tired!!!!
