I know, I know…two days in a row? Guys. I’m on a roll. I wish I could say that my new found commitment (okay, okay, two days doesn’t really translate to commitment but roll with me here) came from my love of blogging or sharing pretty things but, in all honesty, I have a six page paper due Friday about the history of atomic structure and it’s kind of killing me. This is a nice break. I appreciate valence electrons as much as the next person, but come on. Six pages??
But I digress (wait…can you digress if you don’t really have a point?). Here’s what I’m actually in love with today: these reading glasses. So last month, I started getting some serious headaches. Serious enough that they went on for a week and a half without letting up, made me fail a quiz, and pretty much wouldn’t let me do anything but sit and stare at the ceiling for hours at a time (which is so much less fun than I used to think it sounded). The doctor prescribed me some very strong pills (read: medicinal club drugs) that pretty much kept them under control, enough that I wasn’t failing quizzes anymore.
The entire time my mom kept saying, “Kate, should we get your eyes checked?” “Sooo, I think you might need reading glasses…” “Kate. Glasses?” And the entire time I just keep saying, “Mom. Reading glasses are for old women. Enough.”
So on Friday we were in Anthropologie. And I see these babies. They are cute. They are green. They channel that cute old man from Up. They do wonderful things to my already very blue eyes. I put them on, glance at a book in my hands and…OH. Sweet relief.
Turns out Mother really does know best.
P.S. Kate Mathis just put up some holiday still life photos, and they are fabulous. The most wonderful time of the year, indeed. Yes.
