First off, our insurance doesn't cover glasses (at least, not at LensCrafters), but it does get us 15% off. Plus, LC offers 50% off of kids glasses. So, 65% off Himself's, and 15% off my lenses...right?
Umm...so whyinthehell did I spend right at $600 today (JUST for glasses - the 2 exams were only $40.)??? Granted, I did get me a pair of prescription sunglasses...but Still. *deep breath*
Himself's complete set was only (listen at me - Only) $200. That's WITH the 65% off....my LENSES ONLY (ya got that - just the fricking lenses) were $258. The sunglasses? Only $158.....mainly because I had a coupon for (another) 50%. Plus, the frames for the sunglasses were only $39. Ouch. Next time, we go with Thrallmart (why not this time? Because I knew he needed glasses, and didn't want him to have to wait 2 weeks to get them. This time. Next time, he can wait, since he HAS a pair now.)
Himself's eyes are....weird. The left one (I think) is 20/25..the right one is 20/60. Just like Granny's. Me? Blind in both eyes - but my prescription is now a little weaker than my old one. (the Dr. said that happens as you get old. Whatever.)
Glad I'd already forgotten about trying to nab a GPS for myself (I get lost in a closet). Ah, well - it's only money, and I haven't bought anything frivolous (this time. *g*)
OH, - and Himself's first sock is done and the 2nd is CO and almost 1" into the ribbing. To match the other one, I'm doing the ribbing with 2 circs...we'll see how long I last. *sigh*
