the smell of my desperation has become a stench

When the new frames came in

These are a tiny bit more catlike than her older ones, but she chose them and couldn’t be happier. Long story made short: they arrived yesterday afternoon along with Marlo’s permanent lenses, but since Leta had so much homework and a piano lesson I just took Marlo down to the store with me. They adjusted Marlo’s frames to fit her head a little better, but they then informed me that they’d need anywhere from one to two hours to insert the new lenses. GAH! I had to run back home to get Leta to her piano lesson on time and FIFTY THOUSAND THINGS GOING WRONG LATER we were back at that store having these catlike frames adjusted to fit her face a little more snugly. All is well now, except when did my older daughter turn 18 years old?
