A couple of months ago, I took my glasses off and put them on the couch next to me. Timmie jumped up on the couch and I hear a little ‘crunch’. Yep… that was my glasses. She snapped them right at the point that the arm connects to the front piece. There was no way I could fix it. So I have been without glasses waiting for my 1 year to be up so I could use my insurance again. At long last… I had an appointment Wednesday and selected a new pair of glasses. The arms are completely and totally bendable. The bridge is also bendable although not to the same degree. They are light as crap. I am not sure you could even notice that you were wearing them. This I like very much because I always have a problem with the arms pressing against my head and hurting. This is usually why I end up taking off my glasses all the time and leaving them lying around. These are rimless glasses so they are almost invisible. The frames are a plum colour. Purple is my favourite colour so this is a nice touch. I could have bought a soft gold colour that completely disappeared into my face but I went with purple because it is a little different.
So… will they survive the cat? And does this mean I have to go to Confessional Sunday for the EcoChallenge to confess my expenditure? I really do need to wear glasses to drive if I want to read road signs and drive at night. I think this makes it a necessity and not a luxury. Ok… Ok… I could have bought frames for a 1/3 of the price so they are a bit of a luxury. Hopefully, I will enjoy these frames and they will be with me for years to come. No need to replace the frames if I am happy with them even if my prescription changes. That would make it better than cheap glasses that I hate. Right?
