grocery shopping: the episode where megan looks like a strung out crack whore, wee!

I just got done ordering myself some new glasses. I had an eye exam yesterday and got my new prescription. I found this great cheap site for glasses called Zenni Optical. I'll let you know what I think once I get the glasses, but for less then $70 I got two pairs of glasses and a pair of prescription sunglasses.

I got these (as shown):

These in a dark blue:

And these as sunglasses: In the blue color.

So Excited.
I really am psyched to get them! First off, I'm just thrilled by the idea of having glasses in the right prescription so I can stop getting headaches all the time (I've had three days of nausea-inducing headaches in the past week). But I'm also excited to try some thick framed glasses, which I've never been brave enough to do when they would cost me $70+ just for one pair. Of course, it will also be great to have some prescription sunglasses too... especially for our trip to Cabo. :-) I'm a very happy girl.

As for the eye appointment itself. Well it was fine, although it was interesting afterwards since I got those drops which dilate your pupils. It was a little creepy since there was really no colored part left showing in my eyes... just the whites and then these huge black pupils! I looked like I was on a bad trip! Kind of like this:
(Except, that is not my eye... because damn, are you crazy... light hurt like a bitch and if the flash went off, it probably would have blinded me...).
So anyway, I stopped at the grocery store on my way home to grab some bread and milk. Well it was really hard for me to focus on very small print... like what the milk expiration dates are printed in. I tried moving forward and backward, I tried squinting my eyes, I tried with my glasses on and off... nothing was working. Finally I just grabbed a jug and walked over to a woman with her child nearby. I got her attention with a polite "Ma'am" at which point she took one look at me and got a very uncomfortable expression on her face... the kind of expression that says she was a little concerned I was going to steal her baby to sell for crack. Fabulous. Luckily after a brief explanation of why my pupils were dilated (and noting that it was done by a certified medical professional), she happily read me the expiration date... at which point I hightailed my ass out of that store so fast I left a smoke trail behind. Good times.

The rest of the day was fine. We headed to Pat's to have dinner with him and his sister. Then played Wii Sports until late into the night. And today? Well, today is a very quiet Sunday. We ate breakfast at Pat's (he makes great dippy eggs), watched some SciFi channel movies, then came home. Travis is napping at the moment... so I'm entertaining myself here. I'm also quite enjoying the fact that I don't have to go to work tomorrow. Yay for President's Day!

Right now though, off to find some grub and watch a movie. Have a great rest of the weekend!
