It's strange how, as you get older, things that never used to even phase you become major annoyances. It's a trend with which I'm not at all happy, but I'm finding it difficult to reverse it. Maybe it's the accumulation of crap over the years. It builds up and builds up, until it finally reaches your tolerance level, and sub-consciously, you say, "Enough is enough!" Still, it's not something about which I'm happy and I would like to get back to the days when I just let it (supposedly) roll off my shoulders.
I got my new glasses on Friday. The lenses are new,, but I just had them put into the old frame because I really like it and I couldn't see paying for a new one which would have been basically the same. The new lenses are strange. If I look to either side, things get very distorted. I was pre-warned that that would be the case, so I was kind of expecting it, but it's still difficult to get used to. The main thing is that now, when I watch Le Tour de France, I can actually see everything! I didn't realize how much I had been missing until now.
