picked up my NEW GLASSES from the eye doctor!!!!!
when i was on vacation my sister & i went to an eyeglasses store so i could get her opinion on new frames since i had a dr. appt. scheduled for when i got back home. i found a pair i really liked that had a star on each side but it had rhinestones circling the star & just looked a little too "hokey"! then the optician told me the frames wouldn't work with my prescription because of how the lenses were in the frame -- sort of "frameless" on the sides. i'm practically BLIND so the edges are pretty thick! all the others i tried on were metal - the plastic ones just didn't look that great.
when i went to my dr., i pulled about 12 frames - all metal except for 2 pair of plastic ones. the one pair didn't look good at all. i narrowed it down to about 3 frames and the 1 plastic pair. i kept coming back to the plastic one!!!!! there was just SOMETHING about it!!! i don't know if it was the turquoise bows or what!!! (i'm in a turquoise sort of mood lately!!!! i painted turquoise on my dining room table, there's turq. in the pillows on my couch, i made a new set of placemats & napkins that have turq. in them, i got a turq. dish drainer mat for the kitchen......i'm thinking of painting my tv cabinet in the living room turquoise!!!!!!!!!)
so finally, after going back & forth & back & forth, i said, "OH HECK! i'm just going to have a mid-life crisis & choose the turquoise plastic ones!!!!" the optician said, "Good for you!!!!! i like them on you!"
so it was done! for 2 weeks i prayed that when they came in (no 1-hour jobby for MY prescription!!!!!), i'd like them because i'm gonna have to wear them for the next 1 to 2 years!!!!!
well, they were ready yesterday after work and i LOVE THEM!!!!!
here's the old ones:
and again the new:
today on facebook my sister said i looked smarter --- i'd say smarter and younger!!!!!
so happy i had a mid-life crisis!!!!!!!!!!!!
