The Final Straw

They've been sat upon, bent out of shape several times till the other day they were contorted to the max (by a friend's 2 yo) and then the final straw was when Geo bumped into me when we were reading a book on the couch and ... *snap* one of the ear thingies popped right off my glasses, broke clean off :( It stinks because the only way we can replace them is to dip into our tiny emergency fund that we're trying to grow for Financial Peace University (HIGHLY recommended btw), but I can't drive without glasses, I'll be a sitting duck. It really stinks. I was so hoping they would last a little longer. Not that I won't be glad to get new glasses (my lenses look terrible!), but this is not the way I wanted it to happen (not the time either).

Sorry to hear about your glasses... maybe you can tape them back together again! Ha! :)

Yeah, tell me about wishing things turned out differently. We now have to pay for a fence to go around our yard. Well, I guess we don't HAVE to put a fence, but we're going to. It would have been nice to be able to spend that money some other way, but what can you do...

Yeah, I did, well, sorta... I used some fine wire that I had, threaded it thru the screw hole on the glasses frame, then wrapped it around the ear-piece till it's actually stable enough (for now). Will probably limp along like this for awhile as August's budget just doesn't have any wiggle-room.
