We took a little trip to Wally world today. I haven't used up my FSA money from last year and I only have one more week to use it or lose it and I have $174 left. I decided I should get new glasses, maybe even a funky pair.
So off we went to Wal-Mart.
My fashion stylists and I tried on thousands of pairs of glasses. Okay that is a bit of an exaggeration. Z was very upset that he couldn't get glasses. His best buddy, C, has glasses and he really, really wants them. I tried to tell him that it is not fun to have to wear glasses, but he was not deterred. EB then says, "Let's go to the toy department." I wanted to strangle the man right then and there and I might have had there not been lots of witnesses. I mean seriously, he is whining and to get him to be quiet, you let him pick out a toy. Their logic is spectacular.
So I finally picked out my new sort of funky glasses and paid for them. $238, that is more than I have ever paid for glasses, but I decided to get the transition lenses again. I have had them before and really liked them, but found that after about a year, they didn't get completely clear. She said these were the new and improved transition lenses and they change much faster than before.
Then she asked me if I was interested in contacts and I said, "No, I can't really wear contacts. I have dry eyes and astigmatism."
She said, "You have to try the new Advanced Hydra Clear ones. They work for almost everyone."
Great just what I need, another purchasing opportunity. I mean, I have really accepted the fact that I can't wear contacts anymore, but I would really love to wear contacts. But that would require another eye exam and lots more money. UGH UGH!!!!!
The other $240 was spent on groceries, laundry detergent and toys. Insert angry face here.
