At the end of the day, there are always Gushers.

Years ago, when I was young and didn't need to go to sleep by 10:30 pm to function, I had surgery on my left eye. It wasn't just any surgery. My poor little eye was much too bad to have lasik and so I was put under general anesthesia, had my eye opened up, had a lens implanted and then had 9 stitches placed IN MY EYE to help it stick. For the record, the recovery was horrible. It felt like I had something in my eye and I couldn't do anything about it. I remember crying in public while at dinner with my family because all I wanted to do was take my eyeball out of my socket and throw it out the window. I also had to wear a metal eye patch taped to my face when I slept so I wouldn't touch my eye. The only good thing that came out of it was that I had a nice prescription for Loritab...oh, and that I could actually see.

Anyway, this surgery happened almost 7 years ago. I have yet to get lasik in my right eye...mainly because I am lazy. I wear one contact in my right eye. And every once and a while if my left eye catches the light at the right angle, it will reflect like a cat's. It's totally creepy. I call it my cat eye. And my bowling name is Cat Woman. It just makes sense.

Unlike this post.

Ok, focus. So, I wear a contact in my right eye. It's not the worst thing in the world. But hopefully in a year if my prescription stays the same, I will be able to get lasik. The trouble is, I still use glasses every once and a while. And well, my glasses are like 10 years old. It's time for an upgrade.

And so, of course I bought a Groupon to Standard Optical. $50 for $180 of lenses.

So, today I finally traveled up to Bountiful and starting trying on glasses. I narrowed it down to two options:

Option 1:

Option 2:

Yea, you can't really tell the difference in the pictures. But I chose the 2nd option. They just fit better. The price was not listed on the tag and so I asked the friendly sales lady how much they cost.


For reals? Damn you Vera Wang and your expensive frames!!!!

I told the lady I would think about it and come back. The thing is, I can't justify spending that much money on a pair of glasses I will rarely wear. I might go to Costco and see what they have. Because if they don't have any that I like, I can always buy a ginormous box of Gushers and call it a day.

Oh Nat! You make me laugh. So I meant to text you today, because Hailey has got to make a b-line to Smith's. They have a cute little girl onesie that says "I love my Auntie!" You must have that!
