For a few months now, I've been brushing off feelings that my glasses weren't strong enough for me. I would look at something off in the distance and my first thought would be "ooh, I need new glasses because it's kind of blurry back there." And then my second thought would be "well, but can anyone really see that far? I'm not wearing binoculars, after all." And I'd go on my merry way.

Then last week Cory and I went to Quizno's and he had to read the menu board for me. That day I made an appointment for the optometrist. (Dr. Seitz!)

When the doc looked at my charts he said "whoa!" Yeah, in the 8 or 9 months since I last saw him my prescription got way stronger. He also told me that I tend to go cross-eyed when I try to focus on something far away. He said "that's not a bad thing, it's just a character thing." Ha.

So anyway, when he was finished looking deep into my eyes, I handed him my old glasses so he could put new lenses into them, and was off.

Fast forward to yesterday. Got the glasses. It was fun to walk around and realize that all those things that were far away and blurry were now far away and sharp. I can read license plates again. And signs. Whee! After I picked the glasses up, I walked back to the car, got in, started it, and backed into the guy parked behind me. Smooth move, girl who can supposedly see better.

Now fast forward to this morning. I put them on (after having them on all yesterday afternoon) and promptly got a headache. I've got a headache still. My poor eyes are having a hard time getting used to these new lenses. It kind of makes me feel nauseous almost. Ow. But they'll be better in a couple of days.

I've got a choir performance on Saturday night and another on Sunday afternoon. Which means I have practice tomorrow night, Friday night, and Saturday morning. And then I get to have dinner with our friends and their newish baby. That's exciting - I love having friends with babies.
