Still hereI'm still here. This management class is kicking my ass. I have both an individual paper and a group assignment due every week. I don't know if I'm coming or going, usually.
My schedule at work has eased up a little bit and gotten regular. I'm working strictly Tuesday-Saturday. Tues is a 4 hour shift, Wed-Fri are regular 8 hour shifts, and Sat is a 12 hour shift. It gets me my 40 hours without driving me too insane. I do like that my first day back after my weekend is only 4 hours. That's handy. And I don't mind having a 12 hour shift on the weekends, as it gives us more time to accomplish stuff.
So, in other news...Darcy has been complaining about her eyes hurting, so I took her for an eye exam. Turns out, she needs glasses! It's an itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny prescription, but she needs them. She looks absolutely adorable in them, too.
And holy cow, how did I get lucky enough to get a kid who looks good in THE CHEAPEST FRAMES AVAILABLE? The more expensive ones looked silly. Amazing. I got her a second pair, but they won't be in for quite a while. They're kind of a magenta/burgundy color and look fabulous, too. What I don't like about either pair is that they make her look older. That's SO NOT FAIR!
I had Perrin's eyes checked at the same time. His prescription has actually gone DOWN a little bit. He was a +3 in one eye and +2.75 in the other. Now both eyes are +2.75. We got him three pairs. Two of which are exactly the frames as he had last time because he looks so good in them. The other is going to take a while, too, but it's similar to his old ones, just gold. He gets three pairs because he breaks his glasses A LOT.
Insurance paid for the exams and one pair of glasses for each kid. Lenses were on sale when I bought the other three pairs. So all told, two exams and five pairs of glasses cost me just over $225. Not too shabby at all. My last pair of glasses cost more than that!
