4 eyes!

I scratched my eye, or something and have inflammation on my cornea...so I have to wear my glasses for a whole week! I have to do eye drops every 4 hours and I am not too happy about it.  I wore glasses for years and years and I hated the way I looked without my glasses. My glasses were like a buffer between me and the world. I felt kind of, less exposed when I had them on.  When I got divorced, I changed a lot of things about myself, one of them was that I got contacts again. I started taking better care of myself and caring more about my appearance.  So, now...I'm having to wear my glasses and it's making me feel things that I don't want to feel.  I feel like the old version of me.  When I look at myself in the mirror, I feel so frumpy and fat! What gives?  I suppose that I just associate the glasses with the previous me.  I did order some new glasses that are a little more fashionable...but they won't be in til next week.  So until then...I'm stuck in the glass lane!

Tonight is senior night at the football game.  I have to take a picture with my son...I would go without my glasses, but then I wouldn't be able to find my way on or off the field.  Oh well, I'm excited about the game either way.

Happy Weekend!
Big Hugs!

I "see" your point! Actually, I really do understand how you felt like your glasses were a buffer....I too felt the same way. However, you are so not that person anymore. Embrace your glasses! Most important, take care of your eyes. Have fun tonight! I can't wait to see you in a few weeks!

Interesting point about the glasses being a buffer. I LOVE my glasses and feel I look weird without them now. Never thought of them as a buffer... but I guess they kind of are.

Hope your eye feels better soon!!

I can't stand wearing glasses either. So when you need to take the photo, just take off the glasses. But that eye looks really sore. I've had the same scratched cornea in the past and be religious about the drops. You are just so good looking anyway, that any little pair of glasses won't change that. Bet you had those great big round ones in the past. Right?
