Getting old sucks!!

Okay I had put it off for more than two years ... getting my eyes checked that is ... using only Walmart "Reading" glasses to get by. But finally I made an appointment and had them checked and today I got my new glasses .... tada ... I can see again!! I am typing this post without having to hold my head backwards while looking through the bifocals and leaning over the computer desk at the same time ... guess the neck kinks will get better now, huh! They are going to take some getting used to, however, cause they are a small frame with bifocals, so depending on how I tilt my head, the vision is totally different. I was told that they would take a week or two to get used to, but if I wore them all the time I would get used to them more quickly ... wow, sewing and crafting is going to be so different now ... whoo hoo ... I can see again!! But I have to admit that facing the fact that I need bifocals is not something I was ready to accept, I guess using the Walmart things didn't make it feel real ... but now I don't look like I have on "Granny" glasses that were perfectly positioned half way down my nose .. but still ... getting old SUCKS!!!

Getting old really does suck! I used to laugh at people who said that when I was young, and wondered why they were complaining. NOW I know too. Reading glasses, achey bad knees, slowing down in everything. I want my old energy packed days back again, running through my day instead of walking, and yes, seeing things without reading glasses and strong daylight-bulbs in work lamps so that I can sew. Ahh, the good old days. Have a great weekend anyway! And, thanks for the post about the free give away. I did check out the winner's Etsy shop and LOVE her dog photography cards, and her flowers. What a nice new addition to the Etsy world!! Deborah
