Happy Thursday to you!
I am having a great day today! Because today, after work, I get to go down to Primitive Blessings and meet up with Pam to photograph her shop for her Christmas Open house!! If you haven’t been to Pam's new blog stop over and say hello. She’s not very internet savy yet but she does read your comments and it makes her feel good to know you appreciate the hard work she puts into her shop.
Oh I am soooooo excited! I have photographed and posted about her shop before so I can promise we are in for some amazing eye candy!!! Her shop is just amazing and I can’t wait!!!!! I’ll be like a little kid in a candy store. :)
So that is on the plate for tonight. Heading there right after work and it’s about an hour away. Hoping to make it home in time to get the pics posted tonight… but we shall see. If not I will get them up in the morning.
Second bit of good news… I have been approved for lasik! Woohoo! No more glasses! I'm scheduled for the end of January 2012.
I was denied years ago for the procedure where they open the flap on your eye laser it then put it back down for 2 reasons. One, I have an irregular cornea. It’s not the same thickness all the way around and cutting it isn’t recommended. And two I have dry eyes (I have never been able to wear contacts because they fall out) and they were concerned about the flap healing properly. But that’s all in the past now!
They now have a bladeless procedure that has no cutting. They laser right over your cornea. The down side is that instead of healing instantly it takes about 5 days, and instead of seeing perfect right after it builds up over weeks to your best vision.
It’s ok. I’m good with the down sides. I am so sick of glasses. And the very best part is that the cost is doable. Every time I get a new prescription and have to get new glasses and a pair of sunglasses it usually lands me about $800.00 bucks in the hole. Lasik is only double that. That’s two years worth of glasses replaced by permanent Lasik for the same price. I’m down with that!
So I am pretty excited today. Can’t bring me down!
So lets get to Thrifty Thursday…
I haven’t bought much the last 2 weeks. My house is full right now to the brim with pumpkins so unless it was a perfect piece I left it on the shelf. I did find a few prim perfect pieces but they will come later… because I jackpotted yesterday!
Oh yeah. J A C K P O T!
Check out this antique bad boy!
Yep… I got an antique sled at the goodwill!!!!
And clearly whoever was pricing that day had no idea this was an antique.
Because you are not going to believe what I paid for this.
Are you ready?
Yep… you read that right. Four Dollars. Not Fourty. Just four.
So basically if I don’t find a darn thing for the rest of the month… I’m good. :)
I’m thinking a Wreath and a of pair of ice skates… and wala! Winter display that can stay well into February. Loving.
Until next time…
