What a drag it is getting old...

I went from Julie Andrews in my head to Mick Jagger. I couldn't read my Bible in church today. It was too fuzzy to read and this is the Bible with the bigger print. Time for glasses but I'm upset about it. I'm falling apart, getting old. Mick is right, it's a drag. But I'm going to look on the bright side, maybe I'll look smarter and more distinguished with reading glasses.

    If your choice is between readin' glasses and that "little yellow pill", go with the readin' glasses!

    My mother always told me to never hang out with druggies but, you know, many of the women that I know socially have taken anti-depressants and such for years. I struggle with not judging them for that.

    I know many women who take it because their body has a chemical imbalance and if they don't take it they fall into a deep depression. You can see the difference, it's not in their head.

    But I don't have that problem and no, I won't drown my sorrows in a pill or drink because I don't need either, I just want to be able to read again. Since books are my favorite thing :-)

    My hubby is sooooo TICKED about needing them (same reason as this post title). When we were in DC this fall, after a long day of sightseeing, neither of us could read our map that night (low lighting, TIRED eyes). We were laughing, but it really wasn't funny. Personally, I think he's adorable with his readers...he just thinks he looks old (I'm thinking sexy in a vulnerable kinda way, go figure).

    I definitely wouldn't worry about it. It's better to be able to read and see. Plus, there are some really chic frames to choose from. I actually enjoy picking out glasses. I did so for Chelle and for her sister who was really paranoid.

    For me, it's no different than any other accessory.

    The problem isn't the glasses the problem is the aging process.

    I dread going to the eye doctor for my yearly check-up because they keep finding out that they need to increase the power of my contacts. It's a reminder that I'm getting older!
