So Many To Choose From

So many of them are just not right!

I'm talking eyeglasses here, people, and it's one of the main reasons I have had the same frames for three years.

First I love my old frames. Second, how will I ever find another pair that even comes close to how much I love them? Third, did I mention I love them?

But they have lost some sparkles, paint is flaking, and I had a terrible collision with a hard headed nephew, so they are slightly skewed.

It's time. I girded my loins, brought the kids for extra advice, and braved a frame store.

It's almost overwhelming how many there are! And I tried on LOTS. Most I said no to. One I said was okay. My daughter kept telling me that pair was good, or this pair was nice, and I do trust her judgement (she's never steered me wrong in fashion advice) but I just didn't love any of those. I finally said to the sales clerk, I was also looking for sunglasses. I tried on one pair and that was all I needed. I loved them instantly.

I was about to give up when I tried on one more pair of regular frames. Eh, not bad. The kids gave it a thumbs up, the sales clerk wiped the sweat from her brow and I said okay. These are the frames for me.

As soon as we leave, I have buyers remorse. It's terrible! I'm so worried that they are the exact wrong pair for me. What if everyone said they were good just so I would stop trying on frames? We were all so very tired....

Fast forward two weeks and I get the call. The frames are in. I go down, just sick with dread, and pick them up. I put them on, look in the mirror and oh, wait, they are pretty cute. The more I look at myself, the more I like them. They are just right for me!

Whew! I'm glad that ordeal is over with for hopefully, another three years!

  1. See, I've decided I hate my new ones. Found another pair I love but can't justify buying them. I think your new ones are fantastic!
