Why I shouldn't Procrastinate!

This is why:






Yes, I'm wearing glasses. No, I don't like it.


Not that there is anything wrong with wearing glasses, they just don't work for me. I have been a contact girl since my first pair sophomore year in high school. Why, you ask, am I currently wearing glasses then? Oh, well that would be because I. am. a. freaking. idiot. Yet again my intense procrastination has reared its ugly head to bite me in the butt.


I needed to buy contacts... like 6 months ago. And I knew it. 6 months ago I got my butt in gear enough to go to the eye doctor and get a new prescription, but I just didn't want to spend the money right then to buy contacts, so I figured I would just use the last of my current stash (at $60 a box I wasn't letting a single lens go to waste). 


At the time I had like three pairs left, which can get me through awhile. They're supposed to be replaced every 2 weeks but the last time I bought contacts I made a year supply last 2 1/2 years so I knew 3 pairs could last me awhile. 


Yeah, except I didn't pay attention as I threw out the first pair... and then ripped the second pair... and then suddenly realized that I had one pair left. Sigh. So I popped them in my eyes and vowed to order some that day. Four days later I finally ordered them. Well, as luck would have it, I ripped my last pair on Saturday...and the new contacts still aren't here. 


So, to make a long story short: I'm an idiot, I procrastinated, I am paying for it by wearing these piece glasses for going on my 4th day (UPS man better get his butt to my house today while I'm at work!). Not only do they look super hot, but they are an old prescription and small frames, which means I pretty much can't see for crap. Oh, and workouts with these puppies? Not fun.

  1. Ahhh this is the SAME thing I do! I always have a year supply and then when it gets close to running out, I drag my heels and wear the same pair for like 6 months. So bad for you, but it's such a pain (not to mention expensive) I have def rocked the glasses before though too!

  2. Remember how I said my husband does the same kinds of things? Maybe this story will help you feel better: Outside our apartment complex is a bike rack. My husband kept his bike down there and also an old bike of mine, with the theory that if he didn't lock mine up then no one would try to cut his lock because they could just take my unlocked bike. One day he forgot to lock his bike. He decided, hey, I'll do it in the morning. Then when it was still there the next morning he figured it was fine and kept putting off going downstairs and locking his bike up. You can see where this is going. Saturday we came home from church and his bike was gone. He was really upset, especially because he'd gotten this awesome metal basket for about $5 and had spent an hour installing it on his bike. So he was all upset that he'd put off locking his bike up, and that they'd taken his bike and not my crappy old bike, the decoy.

    That's not the end of the story. He came home yesterday and now MY bike was gone as well. After his was stolen he was like, "I should probably lock up the other one so we don't lose both our bikes." And then he didn't. And it got stolen too. And now we have zero bikes.

    So hopefully that makes you feel better that you're not alone, and your problem is temporary whereas we lost two bikes! (I don't care because I never ride mine. But he was very upset!)

  4. I have to wear glasses myself and could not think about contacts. It felt weird. I am happy to have met you via Voiceboks and follow your blog. Hoping to read more and engage your blog as well.
