I got my glasses yesterday! Hafta say, super weird.
I can see the large thick sides in my peripheral vision and I think I can see the actual shaping of the lense as he had to round it to fit in the frame. I guess that's what bugs me the most. They keep saying I'll get used to it. Which part exactly? The large frame always in the background of my vision or the focusing on things part? I'm sure I'll get used to focusing on things, but those thick sides are always gonna be there. Maybe one day I'll put them on and not even notice them.
Anyways, I don't care if I don't really enjoy them yet. I have them. And I'm excited. I realize I haven't worn glasses, that actually did something for me, for like 4 years. My eyes need to breathe. No wonder they got so bad so fast. Maybe I'll wear glasses more than contacts now. And maybe that would slow down my blindness. That would be cool.
I came home about 9:30PM and Grandma was still up, apparently doing dishes. You have to be careful opening the door when she's in the kitchen at night cuz she can't really hear the door so when it opens she's kinda scared. So I slowly opened the door wide enough to show the entire me and stopped to give her time to process that it was me. She focused on my face and I knew the glasses would throw her off so I waited for some sign of recognizition from her face before I came all the way in. She's a funny lady.
Went to Kara's after getting my glasses. We watched Hostage with Bruce Willis. Heaven forbid we go one night without watching a movie. She comes all the way down here and sits on her butt and watches movies all day and maybe takes a few pictures. She can do that at home. That girl has no sense of adventure. I'm a lil' self concious about my glasses, but when Kara started making fun of me, I kinda got defensive in my head and I concluded I liked them no matter how they make me look or how big they are. They're cute. Wheee.
Ah, but then again my body is trying to bleed again so who knows what I'll think in another week. Love is fickle. And vacation is next week!! Eee! Back to more planning. "I'm so excited, I just can't hide it."
