I had to finally admit to myself that I needed new glasses (and progressive lenses at that) as it was getting too frustrating to keep lifting them up to read small or fine print. Luckily, lenses have come a long way since my mother's day when you could see the telltale line going across the middle. When I put on my new glasses, I felt so thankful and grateful. The frames of my old ones had warped so they sat crookedly on my face and the arms were bent out of shape too. It just felt fantastic to have glasses that sat properly and securely and to have the proper prescription too. There was a really good sale at the optometrist's at the time which made the prescription, while still very expensive, not horrifically out of reach. I used the points from my glasses towards getting a pair of sneakers.
Yes, I am finally at an age where comfort trumps fashion! They are my first new pair of sneakers in 15 years. And I have to say, they are incredibly comfortable. It was a bit odd at first walking around in a pair of flat shoes but the ease and comfort have me sold.
And finally, birthday flowers from Monsieur. He is getting a hip implant tomorrow. The first attempt a year ago was a disaster with the surgeon breaking his femur into 5 pieces. The second attempt will be performed by a new surgical team. We are hoping and praying that all goes well. Please send lots of positive thoughts his way! I am going to do my best to keep up with blogging but, if it is a little quiet around here for a while, it will be because I am busy going to the hospital. Otherwise, I will "see" you on the flip side.
