Bifocals---WHAT!?!

I found these small witches in my stash and decided to paint them.  Well little did I realize that I would not be able to see them let alone paint them without BIFOCALS!!..  I had gone to the eye doctor because I was having problems seeing the street signs while driving so he increased my long distance vision but now to paint my arms are not long enough.  To think I use to laugh at my mom and aunts that would stand up from the table to read the fine print on the newspaper while looking down!
The things that use to be so easy are now becoming a problem.  I guess that goes with aging.
I have worn contacts for so many years I am not sure how to wear glasses.  Needless to say I am now the woman looking around for my glasses while they are sitting on my head.


 I better paint all the small things quickly before it is all over!!
Hope you are enjoying your day.

  4. Barb, I know all about what your talking about! Bifocals!!! I had to have cataract surgery on both eyes 2 years ago at the age of 47 and my eyes have never been the same.

  5. Oh my gosh, Barb! I experienced the very same thing this past week at the eye dr...now I need glasses to see up close while stitching and for night driving! I'd sure rather lose my hearing than my sight! You're not alone girl!!! And yes, we ARE too young for this!

  9. I had to get bifocals last year. It is difficult to get used to. I was hoping to make it to 50 before that happened.
