Getting Contact Lenses

I am old. My eyesight is poor. I need BIFOCALS! AAGGGGHHHHH!!!!

I told dear dh that I wanted to get contacts. I have worn them before, many years ago, in an effort to curb my Myopia (which was lovingly called 'galloping' myopia). My eyesight is about 750 in each eye - not sure what that means - but I guess I am about 20/2400 or something like that. I cannot see without my glasses and now I am beginning that middle age thing where I cannot read things up close.

So I am going to give contacts a try. I will keep you posted on my success.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday - number 43. I am not shy about announcing it and in fact am pretty happy to be the age I am. I was thinking that very thing the other day. I wouldn't want to start over, be a teen again, nor would I want to go back to my 20's or 30's. I am very happy to be in my 40's and feel like I am finally able to just be 'me.'

Happy birthday to my dad!!

My dad's birthday was yesterday and we always have celebrated our birthday's together. But this year my parents are in Indiana at the funeral of my dear Uncle Bob. Doctor Bob as he is known in Berne, Indiana was a beloved family man, country doctor, pilot, and all around great guy. He loved the Lord Jesus without hesitation and served him all his life. He passed away suddenly on Sunday and my folks have gone back to celebrate his life. He will be missed.

Neil Diamond, anyone?

DH took me to see Neil Diamond this week. I never was a huge fan but was looking forward to a night out. We were given the tickets (never turn away free concert tickets) so we went and made it an evening out. The show was great but Neil is losing his voice (mostly the high's and low's). It was still fun to dance and sing along with him and he does put on a great show!
