I can see clearly now (soon)

I'm going to get contacts today. My poor, poor glasses have finally given up the valiant fight after months of battle with a toddler.

It all started in Hawaii. While lounging in a comfy hammock, my glasses were assaulted by ten month old grubby hands. They didn't fair well. In fact, the nose piece and eye piece were separated briefly in combat. Fortunately, my sister is handy with super glue and they were reunited. Unfortunately, the super glue trick was a trade I had to learn since the war waged on after vacation and away from my gluestick wielding sister. I'm not as handy as she is, as evidenced below:

Yes, dear internet, I have been walking around with a glob of super glue in front of my right eye for months now. Months! Talk about trashy, white trash. I have no excuse. But see, I hate to spend money on myself. If it were one of my kids, or my hubs, or even my freakin' dog that needed new glasses or contacts, I would put myself into debt. But for myself, nothing. How else can I play the martyr?

S finally got sick of hearing me bitch (well that and the super glue ran out). He has ordered me to march myself to the doctor, get my prescription, and order some lovely contacts. It's been about six years since I've owned a pair of contacts. Let's hope I remember how to stick my fingers in my eyes.

LOL...Sounds like something I would do! I can't do contacts though, I don't how you people stick that stuff in your eyes... my eyes tear up just thinking about it!

I love my contacts!

The mornings I am home, I try to wear my glasses for a little while, but usually don't make it past 15 minutes when Alyssa is awake. She rips them off and then I am blind.

Yay for your new contacts!

Yeah for the contacts! I couldn't live without mine! We Mommy's sacrifice so much for our kiddos, I feel guilty buying for myself, too! Enjoy!
