One of those weeks

January 13th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Family Life

Man this has been one of those weeks.

I’ve been going to PT two to three times a week and getting injections in my knee once a week.  It is time consuming but the swelling has gone down which was the goal.  I’ve also not been running as much which might account for the swelling going down.

One day this week (I’ve forgotten which one it’s been that kind of week) I knocked my glasses off the sink and stepped on them.  Not a delicate, bend them out of shape sort of step either.  A break the frames and make them absolutely un-usable sort of step.

I did have a current prescription (yeah for that) but I’d planned to get my glasses on-line using that place that will send you six sets of glasses to try.  That takes time and I’d not gotten around to it yet.

So, off we went to the mall.  I have insurance to get my eye exam but not any “coverage” for the glasses or the lens themselves but I printed off the “discounts” I was suppose to get based on the “deal” the health insuance company had made with eye glass companies.  I ended up spending $269 and getting two pairs of glasses.  The eye glass company (who shall remain nameless because of a screw up I’ve not yet mentioned) had a better price than the discounts provided under my health insurance.

But.  And I didn’t ever understand how this happened.  When they actually made my glasses, they put the bi-focal prescription in the lens but not the “regular” prescription.   They were very nice, and very apologetic, and even made me a pair of lens with the regular prescription so I could see to drive until the regular ones were ready but it took three trips to the mall and two days of running around like a blind person.

Yesterday my sister had her gall bladder out.  I had forgotten how hard sitting around waiting is.  It is completely exhausting!  The patient made it through surgery safely and is recuperating at our house for the weekend.

I guess all this sums up that I’m ready for the weekend to begin because it’s been one of those weeks.

    So sorry to hear you’re having the same kind of week that I am. What’s up with that? I’m hoping and praying that your week next week goes so much better! (And soon I want to see a pic of your new glasses. I love glasses for other people!)

    Blah. Yeah, and it’s the little things that seem to eat up the most time. Here’s hoping your knee and your sister are both 100% soon.
