I made it through the first day of wearing bifocals. I had been told by my eye doctor to bring my old pair with me for a while in case I have a hard time getting use to bifocals. I can always use the old pair to drive home after all he told me. I fear we leave work at the same time and he doesn't want to be on the road with me!
So, in my car is my old paid of glasses but I didn't wear them. No not me, instead I spent the entire day doing the bifocal head bobble! I look like one of those bobble toys you get at ball games where the character's head bobs up and down and side to side. Trying to see out of the top half for far and bottom half for near takes real skill. Move your eyes left and right and you get a queasy "out-of-focus" feeling in your stomach! But I'm no wimp! Not me, I can do anything after all "I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar"! So I spent the day bobbing up and down, left and right until I could see what I was typing, where I was walking and who I was talking to. Hey, I only tripped over our dog once today! I was quite entertaining to watch.
Life is full of "out-of-focus-queasy-moments" isn't it? We can't see what tomorrow will bring and we find ourselves bobbing up and down, left and right trying to figure out if we should take this job or that one. Should we move or should we stay. Should we have more children or stop (hey if our kids are reading this, we vote for MORE).
With my bifocals, I need to look straight and focus on the object. Moving my eyes either left or right will only get me in that " out-of-focus-queasy feeling" I think life is like that - look straight ahead and focus on your object ( your goal). Don't get caught up looking off to the side, stay focused.
I need a back rub, my neck hurts from the bifocal head bobble!
