Day 4…and a good day for mail!

January 7, 2010

It was a banner day ’round these parts.
First, I successfully made it to day 4 of my cleanse, and the first day of the Master Cleanse lemonade. I feel great. A little tired but not weak at all. I took ibuprofen around 3 for a rising headache, but the fact that I could wait that long is testament to the fact that this is working. All the other days I was popping pills to relieve my caffeine headaches by about 8:30 am.
I’ve decided to include miso soup in my regimen for now. It’s a nice addition, I think, and adds a different flavor to my day.
This is, I have to say, the first day I’ve noticed that I feel a bit trimmer around the middle. Finally.
I imagine it will only get better from here!

Another exciting moment for us was when I reached into the mailbox and pulled out….


The poor kid has been waiting for them for awhile. We got her prescription in late November, but shuddered at glasses prices (we don’t have vision insurance so the whole thing was a pretty big financial hit). I was looking at having to spend $250 at least at the physician’s office–just for the frames and lenses themselves. The exam was over $150. Even Sam’s Club wasn’t much better (a bit…but still in the hundreds).
Then, a good friend of mine sent me a link to Zenni Optical.

Wow. Chiara and I scanned through the kids’ glasses and she got so excited. It took me a little while to figure out how to enter the prescription info (I don’t wear glasses so this is all Greek to me!) but when I got stumped, I called them and they were VERY helpful.

The glasses took about 2 1/2 weeks to arrive but now they’re HERE and she is so excited. Even better, she can SEEEEEE. Finally.

Further, her corrected vision didn’t break the bank. BOTH pairs with shipping cost about $55. Seriously. If she breaks ’em, we can replace them for under $30. I am so so so relieved!

Of course, no excitement would be complete without a little bit of sibling jealousy thrown in the mix. Graysen announced that he needs glasses. That he can’t see. Further, he’s blind. The world is all green and black. Unless….

He’s playing the Wii. Then he can see JUST FINE. So I’m not really sure if he’s asking for glasses or asking to play the Wii 24/7.

Regardless, we’re stoked. Chiara gently cleaned her lenses, then carefully labeled her cases so she doesn’t mix them up. 🙂

Yay for today!

    Ooooh, I’m so glad you posted the link for glasses … mine are ancient, the prescription was always wrong, and it’s the cost that’s prevented me from getting new ones. Thank you!

      I want everyone who wears glasses to know about this company. I’m very very happy. Hope you find a kickass pair of perfectly scripted glasses Hallie! xo
