This photo has nothing to do with today and is a couple months old, but for some reason, I always feel like I need a photo to accompany a post, so here ya go. My great-grandmother's vintage jewelry. They are so much fun to mix and match.
Much has happened since my last post...my glasses came (yay!), my identity was stolen (lame!) and I discovered the kinkos hydraulic paper cutter (hallelujah!). To give you more detail, I love the glasses...accept for the fact that they made me super sick the first day. I wore them all afternoon and by the time I got home I could hardly walk from nausea. Apparently first time glasses wearers need to ease themselves into glasses....my optometrist forgot to tell me that. That said the moment I put them on, it was like my world suddenly turned HD. Everything is so clear...and I can see so much better. I can see street signs!
Now to my identity. I went to buy a cleaning cloth for my glasses, but my card was declined. I asked the clerk to try again, that it must have been a mistake...it was declined again. Cree and I immediately went to look up our account. Apparently some little fasionista in Los Angeles, California was having the time of her life with our checking account. We're pretty thrifty people, so to see multiple signed purchases for crazy amounts at "fashion usa" was a little frightening. I started to feel sick, thinking it was because all our money was disappearing, but now I know I was sick because of my glasses....well it was probably both. Thankfully, the bank took care of everything and we won't get charged at all. Whew! What a blessing. I don't think I'll use anything but paypal ever again.
As for the hydraulic paper cutter at kinkos? Amazing. Perfect cut for only $1.50 a cut and up to 500 sheets of paper. Where has it been all my life? Sayonara exacto knife!!!
