Here’s a question for all you smart folk out in blog-land. When did it get so freakin’ expensive to be able to SEE?!?! I just recently spent more than a mortgage payment for new glasses. Two sets of clear. Update the lenses in my sunglasses (okay – these are Maui Jim’s and I have to say they’re the best sunglasses I have EVER worn – and worth every ridiculous penny!). That’s two new sets and new lenses. More than a mortgage payment. How in the heck does that make sense?!? I’ve been wearing glasses since I was in my early twenties. And in that 10 years or so ( 😉 ), the price has just skyrocketed!
To add insult to injury, my sunglasses will be ready in 8 – 10 days. I feel a little stupid to admit that I’ve only got the one pair. It’s completely killing me to have to do things outside without sunglasses – like drive. Ever since my mom insisted that I wear sunglasses whenever I go outside – to protect my eyes – I have worn sunglasses whenever I go outside. And now I can’t. I miss them terribly! I hope Mr. Jim hurries…..
So – on to today’s card. It’s an easy one and won’t take a second to share with you! My young friend (one of the twin
boys young men I’ve told you about) is having tooth surgery tomorrow. Wisdom teeth – one has some kind of cyst under it. So, he’s getting the full-meal-deal. Fasting. IV anesthesia. The works. And they tell him to expect a few days of not-so-much-fun after. I remember getting mine out, and I didn’t like the aftermath much. So, I wanted to make a Get Well card – which I’ll take over to him tomorrow afternoon – probably with a chocolate milkshake (about the ONLY good side effect of wisdom tooth extraction!). I used the brand new, ever-so-cute Get Well Soup stamp. Take a look-see:
