Am I Giving Up? — 12 Comments

  1. I’ve kind of wandered away from my contacts habit too. I’ve been sporting the specs a lot. For one thing, I like seeing. I need glasses over my contacts and that just defeats the whole purpose. They get dry, they move around, it’s a hellish nightmare, really. But the glasses? Every spot, nick, piece of lint, smudge drives.me.crazy! I can’t have lazik either, because my astigmatism is horrendous. Oh, the slings and arrows I suffer. Get the lazik. Save yourself. And keep dancing to Wilson Phillips in the kitchen. Your glasses won’t fall off if you hooooold oonnn! 😉

  2. “Hold on for one more day, things will go your way,” I think it’s time to take some Wilson Phillips advice.

    I’m kidding, of course. Marriage and thirties make you look at the important things in life, and impressing random strangers with looks (outside of LA) isn’t important anymore (or shouldn’t be). Finding lasting friends who like us for who we are? Priceless.

    I’m trying to convince my wife to get lazik, as she is basically blind without glasses/contacts. She’s afraid of those few bad cases from the late 90s about people going blind at night. Doesn’t matter that there is so much evidence that the surgery is one of the most successful types performed. Oh well. Good luck with the glasses until then. They are better than the allergy eyes at home. (Again, my wife has same problems).

    • Yeah, I need to get a grip & take their advice. 😉 How I look isn’t as big of a deal anymore, but it’s weird to grow out of that phase – especially in an appearance-obsessed culture.
      Tell your wife my sister and brother-in-law and former roommate all got lasik, all had great experiences with it, and all say it’s the best thing they ever did.

  3. Comfort beats out looks every time! How much longer till you’ll have enough for your Lasik? Plus, I’ve seen pics of you in glasses and I feel that you pull them off well! 🙂

  4. I know exactly how you feel! I got Lasik 4 years ago and it was the best money I ever spent! And shoes? Don’t get me started. Why is it so hard to find attractive, comfortable shoes anyway? You know, ones that don’t have sky high heels that make your feet hurt just looking at them or those less-than-zero arch support flats?? WTH!

  5. Oh boy, can I ever relate to this post! I went through a severe case of Theblahs last year. Yoga pants, hair permanently in a ponytail, practical (read UGLY) shoes. One day, I saw myself in the mirror and decided there must be someplace in the middle that was better (or at least nicer to look at). My solution: I cut off all my hair and starting buying gorgeous shoes that I wear on dressier occasions or really short outings. I still love my yoga pants and I wear ugly shoes to walk the dogs, but I feel that somehow, some balance was restored.
