I can see a bug on the sidewalk.

My regular eye doctor had told me that when I had cataract surgery, “It will change your life.” Well, it did not change my life. My life is exactly the same except that I can see it better.

Every day, I realize that I can see something that I was not seeing before. I just had not realized how bad my vision had gotten. I could still function, but I guess that is normal when your vision just gradually deteriorates. Hubby laughs at me when I will suddenly see something that has “been there forever”. So I am entertaining him daily. Wait, I pretty much already did that. I guess I just have more entertainment value now.

Today is my parents’ 59th wedding anniversary. I am so glad they found each other and so glad my mom said yes. I have the best family ever!

Today is also the 39th anniversary of the day I graduated from high school. Eeek! I feel so OLD! Oh, wait…. I am over it now. LOL!

lol! One of my best friends got glasses when she was in elementary school. The first thing she noticed was that the wall next to their playground was made of bricks. She just thought it was a reddish wall...

Val, I did that when I first got glasses. I looked out the window of the eye center and pointed out a tree to my mom that I had not seen before. She told me that it had been there the whole time.

So I know just how your friend felt.
