This guy


has decided that sitting on the arm of my chair, very close to my face, is his favorite spot. If I'm working, my lap taken over by the computer, he sits there THAT close to me, and either tries to stare me down, talks nonstop, or paws at my boobs.

Usually, it's the latter. The little shit has gotten to 2nd base more in three days than anyone did the first 30 years of my life.

It's not exactly helpful, and I've gotten far less done than I think I would have.

But. The angry-glasses snit is over.


Okay, fine, I don't look any happier, but I am. New glasses--yes they're identical to the old, other than not being broken--got in yesterday. Second pair of new glasses should get here next week...because I clearly need a backup pair.

But the thing that got me...the cost. With insurance coverage, the glasses purchased at the doc's officer were nearly $400. I went to Costco for the spare pair, and the exact same lens, all the same options, and a much sturdier frame was a hundred bucks less WITHOUT insurance.

Yeah, next year, Costco right from the start.

He is a real charmer!

The only thing with Costco is that none of their glasses come with sunglass options that would clip on etc. Agree, without insurance, eye wear is expensive.

He's such a helper!

I have some insurance through work, but the amount hasn't increased in the nearly 20 years I've worked there. Of course, as I've gotten older I've needed a stronger prescription, tri-focals (though they call them something more benign...progressive lenses) and the cost has increased. The last pair was just over $700 and I got $120 from insurance. Oh well, at least I an see.

The glasses do come with transition lenses...basically sunglasses. If I want clipons, there's always Walmart, but I prefer wearing over-the-glasses sunglasses anyway. Better coverage.
