I wear makeup almost every day. I wear it every day that I go to work and sometimes on the weekends. I used to do full makeup on weekends, but not so much anymore. I guess I am comfortable in my skin when home with Hubby. But I won't go to work without it.
For years, I have bee doing makeup to show that I have eyes behind my glasses. Well, now, I don't have to wear glasses. Well, I will have to wear reading glasses, but to walk around, no glasses needed.
I guess I need to really adjust my eye makeup so I don't look like this
Please note that if this is the way you like to do your eyes, I am not disrespecting your choice. I just don't want to look like this on a daily basis.
I am going tomorrow to get a haircut as my hair just pretty much hangs right now. It looks fine, but I am bored. So new hair and new eye makeup. I may be stylin' next week.
Ha ha! My eye was so beautiful this day....not. I think I took this pic to show the ring around my iris, not noticing the smudgy eye shadow and missing mascara. Oh, well, it is my eye. And it has more make up on it than I have been able to wear in 2 weeks.
Tomorrow morning, at 7:30 am, I will arrive bright eyed and bushy tailed to have cataract surgery on my right eye. I cannot wait to have it done. Before the surgery done on my left eye on 4/7, I was a surgery virgin. I have to tell you, cataract surgery was SO easy and I am not a bit nervous about tomorrow. I AM excited to have two eyes with the same correction. It will be wonderful to be able to see.
I will tell you, anyone that is extremely nearsighted that intends to have vision correcting lenses inserted when they need to have cataract surgery, needs to have both eyes done as closely together as possible. The time between surgeries has been awful for me. I did not get back to work yet as I cannot sit in front of a computer for more than an hour without getting eye strain since I can only see out of one eye. I can look through my glasses lens with the uncorrected eye, or put on reading glasses and read out of the corrected eye, but I cannot see clearly through both eyes at the same time.
Reading for any length of time makes my eyes feel really strained. I usually read 2 - 3 books a week (I read on my daily commute) and with my eyes this way, I am now on week 3 of the same book. LOL!
According to my drs, people with lesser bad vision do not have the same problem I am having. And I am really happy for those people. I would not wish this experience on anyone.
Looking forward to finding out what my surgeon looks like as the last time I met him after they took my glasses away. I heard that he is really cute. LOL!
In other news, I had my cataract surgery on Tuesday and it went great. The surgeon said my eye is perfect and the doc that did my followup the next day also said my eye is perfect. My distance vision in my corrected eye is crystal clear. Something I have NEVER had. I have been extremely nearsighted since I was 6, so I have never had clear distance vision.
The only problem I am having is that my eyes now do not want to work together. The day after the surgery, I had the left lens of my glasses popped out on suggestion of the dr and it has not really helped. It is really crazy as my left eye distance is super clear, but anything closer than 5 feet is pretty blurry. And my right eye has a lens that corrects my nearsighted right eye. The correction makes objects look smaller. With the corrected eye with no lens, objects look larger.
I was hoping my brain would work together to make me be able to see, but I guess the difference is too much to overcome. I can watch tv fairly comfortably, but walking is a nightmare. Most of the time I am walking, I just close my left eye. Hubby is calling me "Popeye".
Typing is also pretty difficult and I am doing it with one eye closed. LOL! I guess I AM Popeye.
I think I will let Hubby take me somewhere later today to see if I can function outside our apartment. I told my boss I will probably be at work on Monday, but I know I cannot drive. So Hubby said he would drive me to the bus. I think I can manage to walk to the office. I think today I will try on some reading glasses to see if I can find something that helps me to function better on the computer. I really don't think I can spend 8 hours in front of one the way I am seeing right now.
I was warned, but somehow thought it would not be this bad. Like I am special or something. LOL! I cannot wait to get the second eye done!
After (Please ignore the shadows on my towels. They really ARE clean ones.)
Don’t you love it?! It really smells great in here now.
As a Purex Insider, I recently received a bottle of Purex Crystals Scentsplash in Fresh Spring Waters scent to try. Right out of the package this stuff smells amazing!! But let me warn you...do NOT stick your nose right to the top of the open bottle and take a huge whiff. Because this stuff is really, really concentrated, so it is strong. Smells great, but you do not want to experience it this way.
As my regular readers know, I do rarely do laundry as I have a hubby that spoils me rotten and does almost all the laundry. I CAN do it and do on occasion if he is indisposed, but it is not a regular occurrence. Since we received some Purex Crystals Scentsplash to try, I thought I would be nice and do some laundry, so stripped the bed last weekend to wash linens. I loaded them in the washer along with our regular Purex detergent (No plug here... that is just what we use.) and poured in some Purex Crystals Scentsplash. This scent is wonderful!
It made my living room, kitchen and laundry cubby smell great! When I finished the laundry, the scent was still in the linens, though not in an overpowering way. It is a nice scent that seems to last a while and I just love it! Our bedroom smelled so good for days! And even days later I could bury my nose in my pillow and smell the wonderful scent. This is definitely a product we will be using.

*Purex provided me with a bottle of New Purex Crystals Scentsplash so I could review it. However all of the opinions expressed here are, as always, my own.
As a Purex Insider, I recently received a bottle of NEW Dial Miracle Oil Hand Soap. I immediately opened it up to smell and it smells really nice! It smells just like the Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash I wrote about previously. A really nice scent that I think can be used by guys or gals.
Miracle Oil Hand Soap is infused with Marula Oil to nourish and deeply hydrate your skin while protecting it from skin-damaging free radicals. - See more at: Dialsoap.com.
I tried the Dial Miracle Oil Hand Soap was hoping it would be super moisturizing. After all it has OIL in the name, right. Well, it isn’t, but it also is not as drying as a lot of hand soaps, so I guess the Miracle Oil DOES make a difference and my hands smelled delicious after washing them. And it looks really nice on my bathroom counter. Looks like this one will make its way into the hand soap rotation for sure.
I am married to the man of my dreams and we are happy empty nesters. I have always loved looking for deals and have found that since our kids moved out, we have a LOT more money thanks to my deal hunting. So I keep doing it.
I love reading other blogs and finding new, and old, ideas on saving money and making life better.
The best part of "blog world" is all the fabulous, funny, witty, people I have found!
