Glasses

I was in 5th grade when I first got glasses. I was really excited to wear them, I think mostly because my sister had them and I wanted to be just like her. I don't remember exactly when it happened but somewhere along the line I grew to dislike them. In highschool I got contacts and that changed everything. Not long after I got married I had Lasix surgery. That was incredible. I could wake up in the morning and see the clock right away. Fast forward 10 years and I now need glasses again, well mostly. The doctor was very impressed that after all this time (since having lasix done) my eyes are as good as they are. I noticed my eyes weren't as strong while driving at night, so that is mostly when I will wear them. But the funny thing is, I am a little bit excited about it. Give it a few months, maybe a year, and I just might hate them again. But for now I can be excited that I am once again a girl with glasses. (which is a very entertaining book for anyone who has worn glasses.)
