6th-Aug-2017 07:54 pm - The Search for Glasses is over !!!!
Be Proud - Wear Pink
I am so glad this is over.  It was kind of interesting how I found this place.  I had googled Eye glass stores in my area.  I went to most of them ... there wasn't a lot.  Then I googled online stores and spent about a week looking at different sites.  One morning I logged into Facebook and found a couple of ads for online eye glass stores.  (It's a good thing I don't search for embarresing places on google)  One of them showed very flexible frames that looked very interesting to me.  The site had a place to check for stores in my area that carried these frames.  They gave me 2 stores that had not shown up on any of the google searches I had already done.  Huh.  I just can't figure out how google decides what to show me.  I walked into El Paso Eye Care and immediately felt at home.  Lot's of frames and very friendly staff.  The Technician checked my prescription and suggested a size for the lens that would keep the distortion down and give me the best range of sight.  We found a pair I really liked but they only had one in the color I wanted.  She said they would order another one for my sunglasses.  Should only be a couple of weeks and I will be able to see again.  Hurray !!

Be Proud - Wear Pink

Well, I see that, as usual, I'm falling down on the job.  I was going to post regularly ... ha!

I do need to reduce my stress, frustration, and depression regarding new eye glasses.  Late last year Crystal Optical, the eye glass store love of my life, closed.  Emmit and Marie, the owners felt the need to retire and move to Mississippi.  I am definitely in mourning.  I wondered in their door at least 30 years ago after visiting more stores then I can count, looking for glasses that actually fit my face.  It was a losing battle everywhere I went.  I have a small face and need small frames.  Most places don't carry anything smaller then a size 47.  45 is perfect for me.  They would usher me to their children's section.  Lovely.  Pink Polka dots, Orange Stripes, or Purple glitter.  What a choice.  

Emmit took me through his whole store, helping me try on anything and everything.  We found 3 different frames that I liked, of course they were too big, but he went back to his office, discovered they made these frames in size 45 and promptly ordered all three.  I was able to pick the one I liked best, I actually picked out 2 of them, and we ordered my glasses.  He has treated me like this every day since.  Talk about being spoiled.  Now that I'm having to find another place, I am discovering just how sweet a man he really was.  I'm sad to say I may have taken him for granted.

25th-Apr-2017 07:42 pm - LuLaRoe Clothes
Be Proud - Wear Pink
My cousin has started selling LuLaRoe.  I had never even heard of it but I thought "oh cool, I'm always looking for new brands of clothes."  I let her know and told her I would be watching her facebook page, which is where she sells it.  That was a couple of weeks ago and I have been watching.  The thing is, I don't like any of it.  I even went to their website to see all of what they have.  Nope, definitely not anything I would buy.  Why do I open my mouth without checking things out first?  Now I feel guilty and I'm not sure how to tell her that there is just no way.  This is probably what happens when you spend the last 15 or so years wearing nothing but jeans and t-shirts.  My brother says just keep a low profile.  As long as she's selling I can probably stay off her radar.  Hubby says tell her the truth.  I do hope she's successful with this ... she had to buy all those clothes.  If she doesn't sell it all, she's stuck with it.  She was showing off one dress that is an xxs, which she definitely is not.  What will she do with those pieces that she can't wear?  This is why I wouldn't ever do anything like this.  Oh well, I'm probably worrying for nothing.  She's a sweet girl and we get along really good, we have the same sense of humor, so she'll be fine.
