Today is the day!

Today is the day that I found out I need to wear glasses. I knew this day was out there somewhere in the future - however, I did not think it was going to be today. Even after Sheila tested me and confirmed that my eyes were not 20/20 and I have known for a while that Jeremy could read signs (with his glasses) that I could not, I went into today's eye exam thinking that I still didn't need glasses. Mid- morning, Vince and I went to our Costco eye doctor appointment. I was sitting through the eye exam when I came to the slow realization that I was not able to read the smallest lines of text and in a sudden moment, I understood that I was not going to get out of getting glasses.


I don't think it's a very strong prescription, but when the doctor rigged up a set of lenses that had this prescription and I looked through them - I felt like I was seeing through my 15-year-old eyes. So clear and my eyes felt so relaxed reading text. What a great invention, glasses. I decided to order this pair.

Vince's eyes are fine. They are 30 years younger than mine, so there are a lot fewer miles on them.

Then we had some pizza for lunch. Vince wanted to say that this was the biggest pizza slice ever. Costco. The land of the biggest.
