I'm Sorry.... Bi-WHAT?

Happy Monday People!
(I could be Lady Gaga and call you my little monsters! But I'm sure someone would not be happy about that!!)

So, Friday I went to the eye dr. A new one... determined, I was determined! I wasn't crazy about my last one...he was a bit dry and the lady at the front desk very snotty and rather brash. (I'm allowed to say this because it's my blog!!) Anyway, I didn't care for them...but I hung in there for 3 years.... until the dr just wouldn't listen to me...and I said "poof, there goes my business"! I even took David with me! So, I begin the search for a new dr.

I like this new dr.... well until he said the dirty word...but I like him! He's young, has some personality...we chatted about photography, internet connections, the hot weather and high elec bills we are all having here, and....wait for it..... about My Texas Rangers!! Woot! How can I not love a dr who will talk about my Texas Rangers with me!

We are talking and he is handing me this little cardboard thing to read... I'm slowly moving it away from my face so I can see it better. He brings down the little cardboard thing from above and says read line blahblah... I have to lean back to see it... yep... he said you are ready for BI-focals! I just looked at him for about 3 seconds...said "oh wait a second".... doubled over in the chair and went NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I looked back up at him and said..."ok, go on" in the saddest voice you can just imagine. Poor man didn't know if he should laugh or hand me a tissue.

Anyway, very long story short... my main purpose for going was to get contacts. I didn't like the kind my last dr had me in...they really bothered me. But now... I don't think I'm liking this either. Evidently, I have a astigmatism...I may even have one in each eye, I just don't know at this point! Which means, I get this different type of contact than what I was getting 3 years ago. PLUS, one contact is to see near and one to see far...and I DON'T LIKE IT! I'm squinting my eyes so bad I swear I look drunk! My BFF says just get the normal ones and use reading glasses to which David says just go get new glasses. I seriously thought about just going back to my old dr... the one I had before I moved here. He understood me..but I probably didn't have the stupid ole 'stigmatism back then!

So now, I feel drunk all day, but without the buzz, which sucks!
I could take my contacts out, but my new dr tells me it will take some getting used to, so I'm trying to give them a chance. And I'm weighing the pros & cons...well that's not true, just the pros. Contacts are a must have for the motorcycle rides... glasses seem to hide the age that has attacked my eye area. 20 years ago I didn't really like the glasses...but now the styles are so cute...and let me tell ya... I rock them puppies!

I really think though.... that I just want my eyes back from when I was in my 20's. They were firmer, no 'stigmatisms, no darkness or lines... and Jessica has them!

Here's another layout that is finished for Kristin's baby book. I've not used naked chipboard really before, but I'm liking it. I have a feeling it might just be showing up in more of my pages. We've got some punching and zinging going on here, along with some layering.  This page was just fun for me!

Ok, time to get some work done, that is if I can see! 
Wishing everyone a wonderful Monday!!

Nice layout!
Meh, supposedly I have astigmatism in at least one eye according to the first eye dr I ever saw 15-ish years ago. Never got any sort of definitive answer from the one I saw 5 years ago. I've been told that I probably *should* wear reading glasses, and wear them when I work on the computer (all day, mind you), when I do any close-up work, and when I drive at night. Psh, 30 isn't "old" enough to have to wear glasses for all that! Neither was 20...
Maybe I should go back for a checkup. Just in case. :)

Lovin' the layout, with all it's curves...and the colours are fabulous!
You're so funny! But seriously, hope you're able to see more clearly soon.

Loving your array of flowers, set amongst the swirlies! And how you put a real bump under the bump! Very cool!

Melissa said...

I hear you on the astigmatism! Luckily though, I only have it in my right eye, and it's supposedly only slight. Sorry to hear about yours. :(

Love how you arranged the title letters around the circle! Very cute layout. Did you use fabric under the yellow piece?
