Today, I got my new pair of prescription glasses. My last pair is two years old and in my world of constantly being online, my eyes are also constantly tired and "abused". I have been seeing squiggly lines and dancing letters. I thought I was just going nuts but it seems like the problem was that my eyeglasses needed to be upgraded. So we trooped to the doctor - my kids and I plus Ethan, and had our eyes refracted. Crap! My eyes need different lenses for nearsightedness, mid-sight and farsightedness. Of course I'd look stupid alternating three glasses as I change my focus so I opted for a progressive lens eyeglasses to encompass all three different grades. So! I had myself fitted with one and wow! It was freaking expensive. I received an set of instructions on how to adjust to my new eyewear. No sweat. However, I found the last step quite funny. It said " If you can't adjust to your new progressive lens within a few days, do no despair. Some take as long as a month or so to adjust."

Okay. I am not despairing for it only took me a few hours to adjust. However, earlier on, Ethan, my son and I were all very careful going down the two flights of stairs coming down from the doctor's clinic. We felt like the ground and the stairs were afloat. But as the instruction sheet said "don't despair" and we did not. We follow instructions to the core.
