Also getting used to being blind for all practical purposes, as I lost a contact lens down the drain yesterday. Don't ask how that happened. I'm sure you can figure it out. So in the meantime I am creeping along with my very not stylish ancient glasses (c.1989) that give me a horrendous headache, hoping NOT to run into anyone I know, and waiting impatiently to get a new left contact lens from Lens.com. Even with a $15 charge for 2-3 day shipping, they are STILL $15 cheaper than at my eye doctor's office. That was a small $5 compromise over the 1-2 day shipping for $20, taking my chances on getting the new lense in two days rather than the allowed three. Our homeschoolers' fine arts program is this Friday, and I just can't go there in my 1980's frames, with a raging headache.
I'm sure that at some point I must have wisely considered buying a spare pair of contact lenses.... but probably not when the money was flowing. In the meantime, we make do, yes? Well, God is good. I'm not totally blind or even close to it. And I have a right contact lens, which means I don't have to purchase two. In everything give thanks.
