I had to get bifocals!

I can't remember if I blogged about this or not. Last week I had my appointment to get my eyes examined, and I had to get bifocals! I am not a happy camper. We picked them up today. I am drunk as a skunk. Are skunks drunk? Anyway, the new glasses look better than the last ones and they feel a hell of a lot better, but they are making me a little sick. Bleck.

I got glasses last year, and they are bi-focals, too. I am blind as a bat, but still I will only wear the darn things when I drive, because it is on my license that I have to have them on. To read I put on reading glasses as the bi-focals just don't magnify enough.
I am still not use to mine, you know that line of demarcation in the lens and how it can mess with your vision?

I got the no-line and boy is it making me woozy. The Dr. said I will feel this way for a couple of days, and then I will get used to it. But, I am not so certain I can keep wearing them for two more days. My kids (yes, they are 18 and 16, but still kids to me, lol) will be gone for the rest of this week and I planned on getting my last two orders finished up and mailed off, but I won't be able to do it in these. I may have to switch to the old pair, finish the orders, and then switch to these.

Hehe, I still haven't started on the leather. lol I do have a pattern made and a layout worked out, but no actual cutting yet. I already did the practice on the scraps thing. lol I am going to just have to jump in.

Mine actually don't have the line either. It is hard to explain. They sorta do, but it is not the same kind of line that bi-focals usually have. It is not such a harsh line I guess you could say.
They don't do anything to help me read. But I can tell they work, because I put them on and went driving and I could see buildings, and signs on buildings, and street signs, and cars, and stuff that I coud not see before. Before, I would just see like red, and blue, and black blobs and know they were cars. Now I can see the license plate, too. And I could not see any street signs until I was right up on them, and by then it was usually too late to do me any good.

Maybe you could start small on the leather so you don't wasted too much. My dad had leather stamps, and dyes, and laces, and all sorts of things. He made my mom a wallet and it lasted for about 20 years, but I left our locker at work unlocked by accident and someone stole it.

It's okay you will get used to them. I got my first pair of bi-focals in 5th grade, and my first pair of glasses when I was ten years old.
