Far-Sight 20/20

I had a wonderful Valentines Day with only one minor interruption. Well, two if you want to count work. After work I had an appointment to have my eyes examined. This was not my first time (even though its been ten years). I knew I would need a driver. My husband was more than happy to take me. The exam took an hour and for that whole hour I sat behind some big eye machine answering to either "1 or 2, 2 or 3, 3 or 4"....you get what I'm talking about.

Then the doctor dilates my eye balls and we go through the whole thing again.
The result are in, I am far-sighted, have astigmatism and presbyopia. In other words, I'm getting old and I need reading glasses, but I can see perfectly fine from far away.

Here I am being silly and embarrasing my husband with diposable sunglasses.

After my appointment, my sweet husband surprised me by taking me to Logan's Roadhouse for dinner. I really needed this. I got me a big sour apple Logan's tea and a small steak with potato and salad. It hit the spot. It was pretty funny because my eyes were blurry and could not see good. My husband had fun with that by taking pictures of me with his cell phone and sending them to my daughter. He said he was even making funny faces at me and I did not even notice. Every one walking around me looked like ghost figures but I had no problem eating my dinner. I think I played if off pretty good. After about 2 hours, I was fine. We headed back home to complete our Valentines evening. Oh and did I mention, He did get me candy after all. "Jelly Bellys". I love those things.
