New Eyewear & SPF



AWWW! Head rush! I just gave myself an Imitrex shot! I will be feeling perfect by the time I hit publish and view blog!

This is my new eyewear. Long story....and I'm not too good at making long stories short but here goes it:
I had a pair of glasses, they were cool, but not this cool. Right after I got them I started falling asleep in them. Sometimes my husband would wake me up in the middle of the night and make me take them off, other times I would just wake up in them. Why would I do that in brand new glasses? Because I was on some serious perscription drugs and I would conk out without warning, so I would lay in bed w/ my glasses on watching t.v. and next thing you know, I woke up hours later with glasses on! I busted one of the lenses in half. I could wear them at first they just had a small crack in them, and I even wore them when the crack got worse and worse, but finally they just got too hideous to wear.

Fortunately I was off all those hard-core meds and was able to start wearing my contacts again. That's where you met me. Happy-functioning-cognitively-sound and contact-wearing. Well, its allergy season and I have to be prepared to take my contacts out and wear my specs. But the back-up pair I have are from 1994-96 and are so butt ugly that it freaks my kids out. How could I go in public like that? Can't use my insurance to get new contacts until Oct., but w/ these expensive puppies it may be a lot longer than that!!

I just "stumbled" into these. Went to an old eye-Dr.'s office and the Versace rep was there. They don't usually carry these and they had a coupon in a book that cost $.50 for 1/2 off the frames. I never could have gotten these otherwise. My eyes are so bad so I have to get thinner lenses, etc. which = big bucks! And, since I'm wearing these in the summer and can't wear sunglasses I had transition lenses put in them. So.....it may be a long time before I can go get contacts again. That's how I justified my "splurge!"

T-S-E took this photo of me when we got home. I edited it, but he took the shot at an angle. I really am proud of that 5 year-old when he does stuff like that!

Today is Friday and I just had to participate in
Kristine's SPF again.

First off is my washer and dreyer. Good thing I cleaned my laundry room the other day, unfortunately I only do it about 4
times a year. It really pisses Papa D off, but I just pile stuff up on them. Anyway, I probably wouldn't have particiated today and shown you their ugliness, but I lucked out!

Next is my bathrobe. It was at the very back of my closet. The last clothing item. The clothes I have on underneath my bathrobe here is what I wear. If I get cold, I put on a sweatshirt. I only take the bathrobe if I go on vacation or have company over. I'm just not a bathrobe person. I guess because it is so chilly in the Pacific Northwest, if I'm cold, I need more clothes than a bathrobe!! (Another photo taken by my in-house personal photographer!)

The last picture for SPF is a flower. I just love dafflodils (that's what Meyers D called them when she was 1 year-old). I took this picture this morning afte I picked up my new eyewear. The color was shitty in the photo so I jazzed it up with some special effects. I really need a new camera!!

*Head rush is gone, but still waiting for head to feel "perfect," hope this isn't an omen. Oh well, I have had MUCH WORSE, A THOUSAND TIMES WORSE!!

Jana!-
Thanks! Make sure to check back tomorrow about the photos. Just talked to my judge and he got the links and is checking them out.

He is such a fun guy/big brother/good friend so I'd encourage you to check out the links for some of his sites that I'll include in that post.

Thanks for stopping by again!

Very cool special effects! It makes my daffodil picture pale in comparison! :)

michele said...

I got your comments - Thank you! Wow, I just added the comment feature today!

I have no idea what kind of flower that is, the bush has been there for as long as I can remember. I don't touch it - hence it's still being alive.

Yes, Jeannette is my birthmother. She left me with my great aunt/uncle (whom I call mom and dad) when I was 4. Somewhere in the previous week's entries I posted the letter I sent her.

Thanks for reading!

Michelle-

Love it! that daffodil rocks. :)

Lola said...

Thanks for visiting, and happy SPF! (That is a freaking awesome washing machine!)

CameraDawktor said...

Lola-
thanks! my other one went "tits up" as my hubby says. So I just HAD to get the extra deluxe spinning washer. It saves drying time because my dreyer is about 8 yrs. old!

Also, I hate it when my hubby says "tits up"! And, if you notice the wall cut out behind the washer, we had old pipes and the older machines sent too much water through. Can't tell you how many times the floor was soaked down into our finished basement. Yikes!

Shoot, don't even know if you will read this, but OH WELL!!!

Is it wrong that I really really want your washer? That's an awesome one!

Love the new glasses - they look great!

Thanks for stopping by...

Yes, I love the washer too, it makes me want to wash clothes if you can imagine that!

Cool eyewear! :)

Grandma Jacki said...

Great glasses - you got taste.

CameraDawktor said...

Levin-
Thanks man! And glad to see you are back in the blogging world. Hope you are doing OK. I've been thinkin' bout you lots!!!

CameraDawktor said...

Grandma J-
Thanks, but really I just had broken glasses and future itchy/watery eyes. Besides, I have too many pictures of myself on the www and didn't want to look like a dork! Is that prideful or what?!

hemlock said...

I like the effect you used with the daffodil. One day I'll learn how to use this dang Photoshop!!

Thanks for dropping by!

PS - Nice glasses! ;)

That is a cool washer :)

Hi Grandma J (that's my mom, everyone)!

I love the glasses!

CameraDawktor said...

leafgirl77-
Interesting post signature, wonder what it means?! This daffodil effect wasn't hard, just looks like it. E-mail me if you want details.

dwdjsdating?-
Hi Friend! Packing yet? Everyone seems to like the washer, the other one went tits up and we had no choice to purchase a new one. The dreyer matches my older set though. Do you really care about all that?!

Hi again to Grandma J and I am feeling pretty happy about my glasses. Hopefully I'll be happy w/ them for a couple of years. They've got to last me!

Did you still recognize me?
