I can’t remember where I read it but somewhere something/one said that people with round faces should wear rectangular shaped eye glasses so as to make the face look less round. So for the past 4-5 years I have stuck with that idea. Now, it’s important to note that I have a small face.. in width I mean. My eyes are sort of close set and my face is short. Typically, children’s glasses fit me better than those of the adult variety. And children’s frames it was until the unfortunate time came for trifocals. Lenses in children’s frames just aren’t big enough for trifocals. Bleh.

Back to adult frames… rectangular in shape. Bottom line, what I’m really getting at is that glasses pretty much stick out from the sides of my head. The frames are about 1- 1 1/2 inches too wide – on each side of my face. The effect is stupid. Not slimming or fashionable at all. Just stupid.

I can’t remember for certain but I think I mentioned my visit to the new eye doctor a few weeks back. The one who figured out I don’t actually have glaucoma. The one who spent a great deal of time working at an MS eye research institute. I was blessed to get his name from a friend. Anyhoo…

The new spectacles finally arrived. I love them! First of all, they are NOT rectangles. They are more oval… about the shape of my eyes. They are rimless which is super fabulous. Lightweight frames… those in the flexible category. And I don’t look as if I’m a bug-eyed freak hiding behind huge glasses and shaggy hair –

 (debating bangs or no bangs so for now I have what I like to call curtains hanging over my forehead)

The new spectacles finally arrive. I love them! It’s such a wonderful feeling to see the world clearly again. I’m not sure but I would guess that my clarity is not what true clarity is…but hey, it’s more clear than I can remember things being in a very long time!

Not much else going on in this part of the world. Work, sleep, eat… that’s about it for me. The occasional baseball game but the season is just about kaput… one more game. Poor Coach though. No real break for him. They step right into spring football. It’s really lousy to call it SPRING football however. Spring is long gone down here near the equator.


Naptime for me… hope all is well out there!

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Oh good, you did post a selfie with your new specs. Dahlink, you look mahvelous! Opt for no bangs. It’s too hot for sticky bangs in the Summer. I’m glad that you’re managing your job and the MS so well. Hooray for you!!!
