WORDFUL & WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

I WILL MISS YOU...

You have been with me for over two years now.

You helped me see when nobody else could.

I didn't realize how much I depended on you till I couldn't use you anymore.

Even though you will be replaced very soon, I will never forget you...

My glasses got knocked off the bathroom counter while I was blow drying my hair! I won't be able to drive in the evening till I get a replacement..lol!

I have an eye appointment next week (since I'm overdue for a new exam). I'm debating whether or not to go back to contact lenses!!!!

Be sure to visit 5 Minutes For Mom for more Wordless Wednesday, and 7 Clown Circus for Wordful Wednesday.

I had to get my eyes checked this past year. I purchased contacts & glasses so I would have the choice to go back and forth. When I'm in a rush for work, I'm usually wearing my glasses.

Happy said...

When I can afford it I love to get both glasses and contacts, but I think I'm ultimately defined by my glasses.

You look nice with glasses if that helps! :)

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

I love the ode to the glasses. I can't wait to see the new ones!

kiddiescorner said...

Thanks for the smile. I loved that. Happy WW :O)

~Rhen @yestheyareallmine said...

LOL- I do not wear glasses but have considered getting a pair with just glass in them so I can get that oh-so-intelligent look they give. :) *wink*

Sara said...

LOL! I used to work for VSP, and always had the luxury of free glasses, so I never really cared that much about breaking them or losing them. Now, that I don't work there anymore, I am so anal about my glasses, and where they are! I didn't realize how expensive they are!

Jennifer said...

Oh, fellow glasses wearer. I feel your pain. Looking at that broken pair made my stomach fall! I've worn glasses since I was in the fourth grade, so I'm basically blind as a bat. If I don't have my 'eyes', I freak out! *sigh* I hope you get new ones soon!

~Sandy~ said...

RIP....hey look at it this way, you get to shop for a new pair! happy shopping :) and happy ww!!!

Carin said...

Oh you are too funny!!! You had me laugh when I scrolled to the picture. Can't wait to see what you choose.

BeLoVed AiMeE said...

lol too cute alicia.
I'm still getting used to my glasses. I don't mind wearing them, I like the way they look...the only thing I can't stand is having to clean them fifty times a day. I think at my next exam I may try contacts. I don't know tho, they have always freaked me out...sticking something in my eye..eww. lol. <3

Just Add Walter said...

oh no!! that is sad....

at least you are not a freak like me.. I only wear ONE contact in ONE eye... :)

A Family Completed... said...

Oh no! You could use some tape for emergency trips at night, lol. I would try to go both contacts and glasses. there are some great online retailers who have affordable frames if you get your prescription. GL and Happy WW

Sarah said...

oh how sad!!!! :-(

MrsMomma said...

I'm feeling your pain. I broke mine a while back and still haven't went to get a new pair. *sigh*

Erin said...

Awwww...I was so excited when I suddenly stopped needing contacts at 43 after wearing them for 20 years. WoooHooo! I hope you get glasses you love as much as these...

LadyBug-Kellie said...

I have seriously considered getting contacts, I think glasses are such a pain! But they kinda freak me out, LOL!
I love your post, your intro totally drew me in! Great writing!

Danielle said...

Too Funny! It is hard to live without them isn't it?!

Graceful Mom said...

Sorry about the glasses! I am currently thinking about contact lenses too.

Collette@Jesuslovesmums said...

Oh your poor glasses! I had contacts and they are very good but went back to glasses due to financial sacrifices we had to make!

Buckeroomama said...

You look great in glasses. :) Sorry to hear that they're broken, but think of all the new frames that you can try on!

Lisa said...

I am so sorry your glasses bit the dust, I remember reading that on facebook.
Joel flushed mine once and I am blind as a bat without them, had to take a trip to Ohio with just contacts it was really rough.
I hope you get a new pair soon.

Susie said...

What a great tribute! I hope whatever you decide will bring you clarity:-)

chili pepper said...

Oh, how frustrating. I am blind as a bat without my contacts. I would be lost if something happened to them! I hope you can get a replacement quickly.

4 Lettre Words said...

Yikes! That's no fun.

Happy WW!!

He & Me + 3 said...

You could always tape them. LOL
Poor glasses. I love those glasses on you.

Alicia W. said...

Awwww, your pretty glasses broke! :(

jen@odbt said...

Oh no! But here's a new look - can't wait to see what you decide on.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Oh how sad! I would have to stay in the bed if I broke my glasses and didn't have contacts to wear...otherwise I would probably break my neck trying to get around!

Aimee said...

Oh no! Poor glasses!

Nina said...

Oh no.... Well at least you don't have to wait to long to see the eye doctor.

Julie@Momspective said...

I started reading like "oh no!" and saw the pic and breathed a sign of relief lol. I've never worn glasses so I don't know the extent of your sadness there, though. ;)

Staci said...

Oh NO!!! I hope you get a new pair soon! I ran ove mine with my car a few... years ago, and still have not gotten a new pair!

Thanks for reminding me that I am way overdo with my eye doctor appointment. My glasses have been glue way too many times now, it is so tacky :) But I only wear them for driving :)

Hey, if you wouldn´t mind come over my blog for an award for you. Love your blog girl!

Genny said...

Sounds like those glasses have been good to you! :)

Jenny said...

Bummer! I think I'm legally blind without my contacts. LOL!

Lindy said...

Oh dear! And those were really cute on you. There seems to be an eyewear theme going on here lately. Maybe you could get a pair like these?

http://mselscl.blogspot.com/2009/08/specs.html

Only kidding! You look great in glasses. Contacts are a hassle. I can only say that now after lasik! Happy WW!

Tiaras said...

oh noooo!!!

Sawatzky family said...

FUNNY!!!!
Great photo and story! Hopefully you get them replaced soon :)

♥Rocío♥ said...

Aww that is so SAD!
Have a ♥Lovely♥ WW!

Lyr said...

My son did this to my husband’s glasses… but it was kind of good since he has had them since HIGH SCHOOL. Really not sure how he was still seeing out of them! Get some really cute ones! ;)

Brenda said...

I hate it when that happens! But now you can change your look a little, thats always fun!

Pam said...

Sorry about the glasses. But just think of all the fun you can have with new frames or contacts.

Karen said...

Bummer! But sounds like you're due for a new pair...

Jenjen @GottaLoveMom said...

You look so cute with glasses...plus contacts might mess up your gorgeous eyes..

Jolene said...

Oh no! Your glasses were so cute. I'm sorry they broke. I know how that feels....

Becca said...

Oh man that stinks. I sat on my last pair of glasses and broke them and was so bummed. I superglued them back together but that finally wore out. After my eye appt I went back to contacts and am loving them :)

Michelle said...

Oh no......poor glasses! Personally I prefer my contacts over glasses, but you look pretty darn cute in glasses so switching would be a tough choice.

Have fun picking out a new pair.

Lauren said...

OH NO!! You poor thing! I hope that you find a pair that you LOVE ... even more than your old faithful glasses!

Kekibird said...

Oh noes! You and my dad both lost glasses to a breakage this week. Hope you get some new specks soon!

Darcie said...

Poor glasses! I always noticed the glasses on you...thought they looked great!!!

Milk and Honey Mommy said...

Alicia, Alicia,

I'm crying for you right now! That happened to me w/my last pair of glasses. Even though I only use mine to read fine print (far-sighted), I was totally ruined once I broke my glasses. They looked just like yours and all I wanted to do was cry. I could still see and drive, but once they were broken, all of a sudden, I couldn't go on. The only consolation is that you get to choose another cool pair.

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Sue said...

Sorry about your glasses. 2 yrs. seems like a good amount of time for them. My husband is lucky if he gets a yr. out of them - lol.!

Debra said...

Oh Alicia,

I loved those glasses on you! I can't wait to see your new pair though...what a cute post!

Love you!

Stephanie said...

My mom got that lasik done and has been very happy with it.

Hope you are able to get some new eyes tonight :)

Helene said...

Oh no!!!! They must have fallen pretty hard to break right in half like that!!!! Hope you're okay until you can get them replaced!

jenn said...

Looks like it's time for some new ones. I'm so glad I don't have to worry with glasses or contacts anymore. (I had laser eye surgery back when I was married and didn't have a child and still had money.)

But now you get to pick out some new ones! :)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I was all prepared to feel sad for you...then laughed when I saw the picture! Good luck finding new ones!

david mcmahon said...

You're not guilty - you've been ``framed''!

Denise said...

Sorry about that sweetie.

Kathy C. said...

What a bummer, I don't wear glasses, but I know how hard it is for hubby to find the right pair!

whimzie said...

You're one of those blessed souls who looks good with our without glasses! I don't know what I'd do without my contacts. I don't like the fogging of the lenses and the slipping down my nose and wiping off the rain. I need to buy a new pair of glasses for days when my eyes need a rest. If you were closer we could go glasses shopping together!

LifeAtTheCircus.com said...

Hope you have fun picking out some new frames for yourself!! Sorry you had to do it unplanned though!

Mommie Daze said...

Oh, I think I'd cry if that happened to my glasses!

joanofalltrades said...

Aww man! Were you devastated? Oh well, this is a good excuse to get a brand new pair or some contacts.

JamericanSpice said...

OH NO! Or maybe just in time so you'll go get that eye exam.

I would seriously panic is something happen to my glasses

You are so funny :)
