I’m wearing glasses today because the Santa Anna Winds are cruel to my eyes, making contact lenses painful. I just took my specs off to rub my poor chapped eyes, and discovered that I am really blind. Like, not merely just near-sighted anymore. I can’t even read my computer screen without my glasses, and my head is about 12 inches from it. Scary. I wish I could get the laser surgery, but my prescription changes too often for that to be a near-future option. Oh, that, and my lack of money, but that’s a tired story. I like my glasses, although I wish I’d put the anti-glare coating on them. But I thought my insurance would consider that “frivolous,” so I didn’t. Then I found out that my brother got freaking Armani frames with all the bells and whistles, and the insurance company didn’t even blink. Damn. I need to push the limits more. A couple of weeks ago, I bought a new skirt. I know I don’t have the money to be buying things, but this was a necessity because none of my clothes fit anymore. I’m slowly buying essentials while I wait for a promotion or raise. Any. Way. I have already worn the skirt approximately five times. I have a habit of wearing my new things to death. I just love my purchases and want to spend as much time with them as possible. I also bought a cute knit hat when I bought the skirt that I just adore. Okay, I know that the hat was not a necessity, unless you consider that one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to wear more hats. And both of the items were 50% off! Jeez. So, I’m wearing the skirt today, it’s denim with a cute fold in the front, sort of school-girly. But the coolest part about it is all the sports netting – that mesh stuff. You can only see it when I’m walking, and it’s the same color as the skirt so even then you wouldn’t notice it unless you were looking. The skirt comes to my knees, so it can be dressed up or down. Today I’m wearing it with a white tank top and a pink cardigan. And flip flops, of course. Put my glasses on top of this and I have quite the school marm thing going on. Today people are taking me seriously! I’m not just a short blonde chick! I look smart and stuff! Until tomorrow.
