Out of Sight Not Out of Mind

If we were having coffee, I would be drinking herbal tea, and I would tell you I have several pairs of eyeglasses around the house. Some glasses are for reading and others are for watching TV and driving. As I move back and forth between activities, I find that I am constantly looking for the right glasses. I did not want to get bifocals yet. I am wearing my reading glasses as I write this post. It’s been terrible to watch what is happening in Ukraine and listen to the news commentators debating about what we should do about it. At least I can turn it off and take a break. The people in Ukraine can’t do that. But even when I’m not watching, I still think of them.

    I have umpteen pairs all over the place, too. Most fun is what I did when I was working. I’m far-sighted and only need them for reading the computer screen, and I can’t stand walking around in them. So I shove them on my head, like a headband. I have very light plastic frames. One day, at work, I managed to shove FOUR pairs of glasses-headbands before I realized what I had done. 🙂 And on the more somber note, yes, we have the opportunity for turning off the horror of Ukraine…

    Hi Deb,
    I too have multiple sets glasses around the house and unless I’m reading orworking on the computer / driving, I have and wear trifocals because I need 3 different lens to see stuff.
    I talked a friend into trying a pair a while back and she hated them. I guess they’re an acquired taste. The only thing better than my tri’s would be to not need glasses again, but it does not look like that’s going to happen anytime soon.
    I so miss not needing glasses though.
    Thanks for the visit. Hope all is well.
    Don’t watch to much news.
    It’s as bad for you as eating too much dessert or any okra. . . . 😎

      Hi Gary,
      I don’t like wearing glasses all the time. Turns out I probably do wear them most of the time. I don’t wear them when walking outside other than sunglasses. I used to have 20/20 vision. I am trying to pace myself with news.

    Eyeglasses can get complicated. I hope you find a nice balance: staying informed of what’s going on and not let news coverage stress you out. Thank you for your #weekendcoffeeshare.

    I currently only have one pair of glasses with my latest prescription. I actually booked an appointment with my optometrist for an exam early this morning. There were no openings until beginning of April, but I’ll wait. I don’t think my sight have changed any since last year, but I want to get some new prescription sun glasses, and figure it’s wise to have an exam before getting new ones.

    I too think of Ukraine constantly.

    Thank you for the coffee.

    Hi Deborah,
    My glasses drive me crazy. I think I have trifocals. I’m not really sure. However, after spending a fortune on these, I’m taking them off to use my phone and sometimes to read. I’m thinking I need to go back and try and work something better out.
    I hope you have a great week.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena

      Hi Rowena,
      Glasses can be very frustrating and expensive. I am using 2 non-prescription pairs that my optometrist’s office said it was ok to use instead of buying bifocals. I used to have perfect vision when I was younger, so I am not used to wearing glasses all the time. I hope you get a better fit for you.
