Oh today was the day of running around. It started with a trip to the eye doctor. I knew even before I went that my vision had changed. I was kind of on the edge of needing a new prescription last year but it wasn't bad enough to warrant it so we kept it the same. Not this time. Actually went to a new doctor since my doctor left her previous location and I no longer felt like driving to Dundalk every time I needed something done with my eyes. I like the new doctor a lot. She was thorough and she made the decision to change my prescription to -7.00 and to put me in a contact lens that will correct for the astigmatism in my right eye. She gave me samples of the -7.00, but the lenses needed to correct the astigmatism weren't in stock so she's going to order me a sample set of those to try before we finalize everything with that. I also ordered new lenses for my glasses. I like my frames a lot, but the prescription in them is outdated as well. I didn't order transition lenses this time - I mean if they don't change while I'm in the car, they're no use to me. Instead I got some clip on sunglasses that go on my glasses - that'll do for the rare times I actually wear my glasses.
Headed off to get my hair done. My previous stylist has taken a leave of absence to care for her sick mother which is sad so I had to see someone else. I liked her just fine and she did a great job on my hair. I don't think my hair has ever been as straight as she blow dried it today (of course she used a straight iron, too - but it's really straight!). No cut today as the ends are still healthy. I'll see her again in 6 weeks or so, depending on how fast the gray grows.
Off to get clothes then - stop at Lane Bryant. I'll be happy when I can shop at regular stores and not the big girl store. I'm sick of being a big girl. I did find some awesome deals in their clearance section. All of their clearance items were 50% off. Score! I picked up 4 outfits. This is just one of them.
I got fitted for bras - wow. Let's just say that was a surprise. I had no idea I'd been wearing such the wrong sized bra. So I got four bras so that now the girls are taken care of. LOL.
After Lane Bryant I went to Macy's to buy make up. It's a sad day when make up costs almost as much as the outfits I bought. But since my damn skin only let's me use Clinique that's what I have to deal with.
Got home around 5. Showed Stew everything I bought and he and I ended the night on the couch watching tv.
Superbowl party tomorrow - provided I can get all of my stuff done. We'll see.
