The Crazy Suburban Mom: Hello Kitty, I can see you now....

Hello Kitty, I can see you now....

About two  months or so ago I took a header off my deck in the middle of the night and didn't realize my glasses fell off.  When I found them them next day the arms were like, I don't know spiraled  around touching their own ass.


So I untwisted the shrapnel that used to be my glasses and put them back on.  Which worked until maybe a month ago when an arm just screamed uncle and popped off.  Both of them were kind of hanging by tendons at that point anyway.  It was just a matter of time.


The thing is I have no near vision.  Two years ago I thought I was going blind from a sudden onset of cataracts and had two surgeries (and two procedures)  three months later.  What was left pretty much was 20/20 far vision and no mid-range or near vision.


Try putting on mascara like that.  I dare you.   It was a lot like this time I was drunk and putting on mascara without a mirror to be funny.  Well, welcome to every morning of my life.

I tried to just use readers from the drug store but I got sick of the headache after a month and went to LensCrafters.   I don't know if you're aware but LensCrafters has a low price rack and a Clearance rack which has always been my favorite.  I normally get my glasses off the clearance rack.  It's the returns, or last years...  Or whatever.  


And I seriously got those glasses yesterday for $167 and I'm not even kidding.    Now.  My kid thinks I look ridiculous.  And he's probably right cause no one with lined-bifocials should be wearing Hello Kitty pink glasses.    I get that...


 I just couldn't help myself.

Just explain that it's the "Mom" version of the Blue Glitter Guitar. Because, it is.

And those are wicked sweet.

I love the pink glasses! As you well know teenagers don't have the same tastes...

Nobody's right, nobody's wrong, the important thing is that you look lovely with those glasses on.

I've been told by a therapist that when you wear pink it's a sign you love yourself!

Janiss 9/9/10, 12:34 AM  

I agree - they ARE fabulous! Never mind what your kid thinks - he doesn't have to wear 'em if he doesn't like 'em!

Weeee!!! First time here and excited! Great blog!

YOu do not look ridiculous. You look cute and fab! I love those glasses. Got my pair of Puma eyeglasses a year ago and I think I need to have my eyes checked again. Having headaches once more! Oh my!

Take care and see you aroud! Hugs!

I almost wish I needed cheaters just to have pink glasses like that. I say "almost" because I really, really, really, really like wearing mascara and would have a mental break down if I had to struggle with putting it on daily.

Rochelle@mom-says 9/9/10, 8:40 PM  

Hahaha I so love them! I think they're cute, I might wear something like those glasses. I only wear contact lenses at present but the doctor advised me to wear glasses when I take off my contacts at home.

Dana 9/9/10, 10:24 PM  

Pink is totally my color and I would have bought them also. I think they look great.

ceemee 9/10/10, 7:03 AM  

Love them! I think I need new glasses!

Lindalou 9/10/10, 10:27 AM  

They are adorable. Heck with what the kid says. If you have to wear glasses, why not have them noticeable. Purrfect!
