As we prepare for the birth of our child. (No she is not having the baby yet) I am reminded of a couple of things. We are in this together with ourselves and our family and friends for support. And we are doing this out of Love. Love is a tenet that our families have lived by and we will be passing that love on to our children. It is the most important thing we can give the baby.

Now if I could only see the baby. Today I snapped one of the arms off of my glasses while cleaning them this morning. I tried putting them back on and balancing them on my nose. It worked until I looked down, which I do to type. I can do some touch typing if I look ahead at what I am going to type and I get my finger on the first letter of the word that I intend to type. I got in trouble for that in typing class in high school, but by the time I got to high school I had typed so much in my own way that I have been unable to break myself of the bad habit. Next I tried some scotch tape because that was all that was available. I felt like Ralphie after he shoot his eye out and broke his glasses.

So today was frustrating to say the least. When I headed out at least I could put on my sunglasses. I went right to th place where I bought my glasses and they informed me that he warranty was up, there was nothing they could do for me. However, the recommended me to a place that could solder them back together. So I am going to try that next week. In the meantime I am going to have to use my one contact. Yeah, I only use one because my left eye had a cataract for so long that I don’t bother trying to use corrective lenses on it. I did have surgery to remove the cataract and that has improved my vision however it isn’t improved enough to warrant buying a tiny lens for that eye. So tonight I decided not to put in the contacts and I have the glasses balanced on my face as I write this. Fun fun.

    I’m so sorry! I don’t have the problems you have, but I know what it’s like to not have any glasses to use. A tip: do NOT use superglue! I did on mine and it actually ate up the glasses so they could not be fixed at all and I had to replace two pair. Tapes are OK.

    Somebody really has to do something about glasses (and not surgery, either) because this is too primitive a thing for the 21st century.

    Well, I’ve had surgery to remove the cataract and it was the weirdest feeling ever. I’ve had many surgeries in my lifetime and that was the most interesting because I could see as they worked on my eye. Very fascinating.

  3. You need to come up with names and start using them. Just pick a name for the child and use it you can change it when it gets here but It must be annoying to have to write future child over and over again

    We have names and will use them when the baby gets here, however I didn’t write future child in this post.The names will be seen soon. Since Allison is due the 20th, we shall see soon enough.
