Eye Doctor and Other Business

Everything went great at the eye doctor yesterday with the kiddo. He’s doing very well with his glasses and his vision is fine. NOW if we can get him to straighten out that eye, we’ll be in good shape. hehe He got a new prescription and it was really about time anyway. I think we were the only patients that afternoon and that was super nice. We didn’t have to wait a long time, even after they dilated his eyes.

After his appointment was over with, we headed to the mall. I had to return something to Penney’s. While I was there, I noticed they had a kid’s glasses sale in their optical department. So I talked to the lady and ended up getting his glasses there. He’s getting some really nice wire-rimmed frames in dark blue with a super awesome warranty and scratch-resistant lenses. I can’t wait to get them and see him in them. He’s going to be so cute (not that he’s not anyway). I also got the frames and the lenses (he has a high-powered bifocal so it costs more) for a really good deal. I ended up saving $250 off the regular price. WOO!

I was so happy, I bought him two new pairs of pants.

Which reminds me… that little stinker decided he wants to be Indiana Jones for Halloween…AFTER I’ve already bought the stormtrooper costume. I’m really not totally opposed to that because (a) we don’t have to worry about a mask covering his face and (b) I have most of the stuff. I already have the hat and he has the whip and the pants I bought today are khaki. Now…where to find a button down tan shirt. Any ideas? Penney’s had none. And the kiddo wants his pouch too. Next he’ll be asking for the leather jacket. Argh.

I have less than two weeks to figure this out if he is indeed going to be Indy.

We came home and watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (I sense a theme here) and had snacks and then his dad picked him up. I goofed around the house for a bit before heading to the grocery store. I’m so not a fan of shopping lately what with all the high prices but … I seemed to have got a lot for my money. They had all the meat on sale and stuff which makes it actually kind of nice to buy food for once.

Got home, sweaty, tired and hungry (NEVER go shopping hungry). I managed to force down a sandwich and while I unloaded and put away the groceries, I guzzled a beer. I’m getting to be a bit of a lightweight… one beer and I’m ready to fall asleep. So lame. Ten years ago, I’d be doing tequila chasers. 😉

Okay that’s it for me. I have a busy afternoon today. NOT looking forward to it, but it’s a necessary evil. Some of you know what I’m talking about so cross your fingers for me. I think I already know the outcome, but one can hope…

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
