Random Blond Moment

So after spending all of J's naps writing my earlier post, checking my facebook and email, and trying to catch up on all the blogs I read (24!!! I just counted them. Although not all post frequently) I was sitting here thinking "wow, my eyes hurt.  I guess I will zoom in a bit on the internet windows.... 

oh wait.  I have glasses I could wear!"  

About a month or so back I lost my glasses.  Could. Not. Find. Them.  Tore the house apart, searched all over work, texted friends to check their homes.  Nada.

So I bit the big bullet and went to get new glasses.  My prescription was expired which meant I had to get a whole new exam (yay insurance) but the actual glasses would be all on me (stupid insurance doesn't cover materials.  Only the exam).  I tried hard not to buy the most expensive pair, but I didn't want old-lady-ugly glasses either.  Almost $350 later, my new glasses were ordered. 

The following Friday my friend A texted me to tell me she had found my glasses in J's room.  He must have nabbed them and played with them one time when I was visiting.

Well... crap.  Can't get refunds on glasses.  At least I have a back-up pair now.  *sigh*

But the funny thing is, even though I get eye strain/headaches from not wearing my glasses, after being without them for so long.... I kind of forget I HAVE them.

Yes people.  I am a natural blond.


  1. Oy! I couldn't function without my glasses. I actually sleep with them on because I have some anxiety about not being able to see when I open my eyes. But I've worn glasses for 30 years so maybe that's part of it.

  2. I've worn glasses most of my life. I got them sometime in Elementary school and I'm days away from turning 26 so trust me, it should be ingrained. But my prescription isn't very strong. I actually can read and write and function without them (although I get killer headaches) so that's probably the real root of the issue. The fact that I can "get away" without wearing them makes wearing less intensely important?

    -BTW, do you have those flexible frames? I couldn't imagine sleeping on my frames lol!

  3. I do that all the time. I actually had my eyes lazered, so I should be all good, but I never was able to get that touch up portion I needed and they're still waiting for me to come back for it. I technically see 20/20 but it's not equal out of each eye so I need reading glasses. but I've worn them all my life and forget that I dont need them so I end up wearing them around town or the house, but forget about them when I'm at the computer where I actually need them. Gotta love it.

  4. Great to have 2 pairs now... can never have too many :) I lose my glasses all the time too - and I'm a red-head :)) xo

  5. When you said you follow 24 blogs at first I thought, "boy, that's a lot!" but then I realized I'm now following about that many! (Your's being one of them...)
    I also have 2 pair of's nice to switch it up every once in awhile!

  6. Thanks ladies! I put up a picture on my profile of me in the new pair. :)
