This week has been a very hectic one.  In fact I haven't even had time to blog.  I hate that. I feel like I am missing out on all the blog gossip for the week.  

  • I got contacts for the first time.  Of course I am a challenge for the eye doctor.  I was prescribed on far-sighted contact and one near-sighted contact.  
    • I feel like I am walking around with one blurry eye.  It's the weirdest thing.  
    • I also think the contact that is supposed to help me see farther away isn't strong enough.    
    • So not only do I have one blurry eye, I have another eye that is fuzzy. 
    • I go back to the eye doctor on Tuesday. 
  • I am being interviewed by a new parent tonight for my in-home childcare. 
    •  Three of my little ones are moving up in the world and are headed off to school.
    •  Cross your fingers!
  • I had a doctor appointment last night and found out I gained 7 pounds since last month.
    •   I was not a happy camper!
  • FLYERS BEAT THE PENGUINS!  Moving onto round 2 against the NJ DEVILS!  
    • Not only are the Flyers and Devils rivals on the ice, but off the ice rivals in our home.  Most of our family routes for the Flyers - however, I have one ding dong son that cheers for the Devils.  I can't figure out what I did wrong as a parent to have that happen??  
    • All I have to say is BRING IT ON NEW JERSEY!  WOOT! WOOT!
  • Hubby and I have a date tonight.
    • Going to dinner and then a movie.
    • 'The Raven' starring the really hot actor, John Cusack.
    • Review will be upcoming.
Have a Great Weekend!


10 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. I used to wear contacts. Don't worry - - - after you put them in and out a few times you will get used to doing it and it won't be nearly as difficult.

    About whether they are the right strength or not, I can't begin to guess.

    One near sighted and one far sighted eye??? Never heard of such a thing!

  2. I tried contacts many years ago. I always had a hard time putting them in. Taking them out was not too bad. I eventually found out that my eyes were flatter than normal. I don't have curvy eyes I guess. I finally just gave up. Also I found glasses gave me sharper vision.
    Oh BTW - do you know there are these for-the-home gadgets that you can stand on and determine you weigh? You don't need a doctor's visit to check your weight.
    Have a good weekend.

  3. I just can not wear contacts myself. I feel like I am poking myself in the eye. Congrats on the bravery for just getting them in.

  4. I've been wearing contacts for years as did my mother. The eye doctor said he'd never had someone learn to put them in and take them out with such ease, but I'd been watching my mother do it my entire life!

    That said, one day I thought I forgot to put one of my contacts in... turns out I was walking around with both of them in the same eye!

  5. It sounds like you have monovision contacts -- technically not one eye for near-sighed and one eye for far sighted ... more like one eye for distance vision and one eye for close vision. That's what I switched to when I first had to go to bifocals. Be patient ... when I switched, it took me at least 2 weeks to get used to the monovision contacts. I miss my contacts TERRIBLY! I developed a case of chronic blepharitis, and even though my eye doctor says that I should be able to successfully wear contacts with the blepharitis, I just cannot. Every single time I try, within a couple of days, I develop an eye infection in the affected eye. So I have to scrap that lens, wear my glasses for a week while using the antibiotic eye drops, and then pay for a replacement lens. It got to be a HUGE pain in the rump, not to mention expensive with replacing a lens every other week. So I went back to glasses. But I sure miss my contacts!!!

    1. Oh, I forgot to mention that I see that your Flyers resume play tomorrow. My Blues play game 1 tonight. GO BLUES!! GO FLYERS!!

  6. Hope the date was wonderful. Don't worry about the contacts, you will get used to putting them in. Pretty soon you won't even need a mirror to do it.

  7. Contacts take a little getting used to, but I really like mine. Mine are monovision, too; you'll adjust :) That said, I hope you didn't wink at the interviewer when you met!haha

  8. My mom had those contacts, one for near sighted and one for far sighted, she was always closing one eye to focus. Good luck, I like mine plain and simple. Hope your date was wonderful!

  9. I have never heard of anyone else with a nearsighted and a farsighted eye. I'm the same way, and yes, I've gotten glasses before that were wrong because the glasses place thought the dr just "wrote the prescription wrong." Uh huh. Here's hoping you get the contacts straightened out soon!
