Feeling Frumpy...

Occasionally, I like to live on the edge.

Like last week when I put my last pair of contacts in without having ordered a new box!
I know, I'm a crazy girl.
Just my luck, the very next day, I tore a contact while taking it out. Without a back-up pair. UGH.

Thank goodness for my cute glasses.

Except for the fact that I don't really care for the way I look in glasses.
They give me a headache from the pressure on my nose and behind the ears
When in rains in Portland (which is often) the glasses get covered in raindrops.
My eyes are really sensitive to the light, and I can't wear sunglasses.

It's been a long week. I usually only wear my glasses late in the evening and in the morning before putting in my contacts. Or when I'm sick and being lazy all day.

So, if you combine feeling really awful all weekend (even losing my voice for a couple of days) and being "forced" to wear my glasses all day, everyday, I've just not been myself.

I've been feeling frumpy.

Then a wonderful UPS man knocked on my door today, delivered my contacts, and saved me from my frumpiness!! (Is that a word?)
I am a new woman!
I have energy, confidence, a skip in my step!
I can see!

My glasses are going back to their rightful place... on my nightstand. :)

I obviously have too much time on my hands if I'm blogging about this.
Maybe I'll go channel some of this new found energy into something productive like vacuuming the house...

Happy Wednesday! :)

Oh, Brooke, I feel your pain! I'm wearing the oldest of old pair of contacts because it is my LAST pair until my appointment next week. They're driving me crazy + allergies and such, but I'm sticking it out to avoid the glasses & lack of sunglasses! Sympathies, my friend!

do you use 1800 contacts?
