Oh, hey guys. Guess what the eye doctor told me last weekend? Are you looking at the picture of me in this post? Ugghhh, yes! I needed glasses!
The minute I sat in the chair and started reading lines of text, I knew the verdict was in. With a few quick turns, Ns were revealed to be Zs, and my precious 20/20 vision was gone. I can’t really say I was surprised… I spend so much freaking time in front of my laptop that it had to happen eventually, right? And the minute I realized I was squinting on a daily basis, I knew I had to spend the cash ($115) to get my eyes checked. (I did say I was going to take control of my health this year!)
Money well spent, I suppose – as was the money I spent purchasing a pair of glasses online, versus the hundreds of dollars I would’ve spent on a pair in the store. I ordered these Saturday evening and had them on my face Tuesday afternoon. I don’t need to wear them 24/7 – just while working on the computer, reading or driving. Ok, so for me, that’s basically 24/7, haha. Anyway, with the exception of a few small headaches, the entire process has been pretty seamless. And now I’m just another four-eyed Flanders!
The low of my week was nothing. Seriously, no complaints. It was a good week. :)
The high of my week was reconnecting with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while, and putting a bunch of coffee and brunch dates into my calendar for the rest of this month. But the best part of my week will probably happen tonight! (See weekend plans.)
A post I loved was So Long, FOMO – Here’s Why 2014 Will Be Year Of The JOMO. One thing the article failed to mention was how money could be playing a part in this little backlash movement. I’d guess people also want to (and subsequently will) save more of their hard-earned dollars.
The best money I spent was $17.03 for my glasses. Not bad, eh!? Gotta love Clearly Contacts’ First Pair Free promotion! (I just had to pay for taxes and shipping.)
My plans this weekend include hanging out with my good friend / workout buddy! She’s here from Victoria for tonight/tomorrow, and I can’t wait to show her around, go on the hunt for some good pho… and yes, squeeze in a workout together!
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
