oh, i see

Just wanted to post a universal 'why'.

Why do eyeglasses continually break? I have gone thru two pairs now both ending with the exact same result. As I am typing, here on my face sits what resembles eyeglasses except one of the arms is missing and the lens has been strategically hand crafted to stay in place with a small wire.
That tiny screw never did fit back into place as it once did. When I bend over now to pick something up, off they fall to the ground again while the lens goes flying across the room.
Is this the way all glasses end up, I wonder? I suppose I would not have stepped on them to begin with had I been able to see where I was going.

(updated- I took a nap and upon waking there sat my eyeglasses with two sturdy lenses and another attached arm. My husband is the best person, always looking out for me. So, I felt pretty bad when within a couple hours I somehow managed to again be walking around the house with my one armed, one lensed glassware. Yeh, they inadvertently received my gentle touch and 'tada' back to looking like a crazed professor. So, for now...contacts.)

I had to laugh while reading this...that must be quite a sight to see your handcrafted masterpiece of glasses. :) I read this post and my universal Why? is why do I always loose my keys. I can have then right in front of me and a second later their gone..poof just like that.

This is just one of the reasons that I love my beautiful wife. She is the greatest thing to ever happen in my life.

lol, I broke my glasses 2 (or was it 3?) years ago now... they were unfixable. I still tell myself every year that I am going to buy a new pair. I've gotten very good at telling what blurry things in the distance are!

Coming over to say 'hi' and thanks for visiting my blog.

My Mom would so identify with this post. She is continually walking around with glasses sporting only one lense! It's a universal dilemma.

Seeing clearly,
