 Hello, my name is Jeanne and please excuse this huge font but my eye sight is poor and I can read this without glasses.  I know it eats up the screen for those who read this on those fancy phones.

 hello from another mother with poor eye sight. without my quite thick glasses, I have 20/600 in my left eye and 20/475 in my right eye, and surgery is not an option. everyone in my own family wears glasses, some of us earlier than the rest. I am thankful DD has really good vision in her early years, better then me. I lost my vision at age 7.

 I have worn glasses since I was 8 years old, now at 53, they are not just an option for reading, but everyday all the time.  I am going to get contacts soon.  My children both wear contacts.  They both were in bifocals since 3rd grade.  When they got braces and acne, I decided to let them wear contacts, teenagers have enough going on without glasses, too.  Now they think their glasses are cool.

Hi Jeanne. My name is Dixie. Welcome to Cafemom and welcome to the group. I know you will love Cafemom. It's a lot of fun and addicting. Lol. Are you married and how many kids do you have. I've been married for over thirty years, and we have a twenty eight year old son, who has been married for almost five years. I can't see very well either. I have to get glasses, so I can see better, to watch TV, read, and be on the computer.

 Dixie, I have a dd, aged 33 and her dh and a ds who is aged 26.  I have been a single Mom for a long time, I am retired and I have a service dog, Mr. B, or Barker and is pet cat, Piglet.  I am extremely frugal and am a budget nerd.  I do not have grandchildren but do have a grand dog and a grand cat.  My dd and sil will be moving back to the mainland US sometime this year, they live in the US Virgin Islands.  My ds is transitioning from college to the real world of work.  My pets are my reason for getting up each day.  I am disabled but manage to live an average life.

Piglet, Mr. B's cat and my garden boots, no my feet are not that big, but they were on sale for $2.

Mr. B at the ballgame, it was $1 hotdog night.  He can eat his weight in hot dogs.
