The Glasses

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Elise, why haven't you ever posted a picture of Lisa Loeb, one hit wonder of the early nineties?"
Well, today is your lucky day. "You say...I only hear what I want to...." (This will be the soundtrack for today's post, since it's stuck in my head now.) Macey got glasses yesterday. She only had to fail three eye exams for us to break down and get them. We were like, "All right kid, we get it. You're blind. What do you want, glasses?!" We took her to the Walmart Vision Center for her fourth eye exam (which she failed). I'll be honest, I had reservations about receiving health care from Walmart. Then I figured, I eat the food that Walmart sells. Is this that much different? And it's good practice for when Obama's healthcare plan gets underway. Anyway, it turns out that Macey is far-sighted in one eye and near-sighted in the other. And she has astigmatism. Whatever that means. I think she looks a little bit like Lisa Loeb, except that she's blonde and a child.

(In other news, DJ got called back on one of the jobs he applied for in Tennessee. The other job. The job that we said we'd definitely take if it was offered to us. He's flying out there to interview for it next week. We got the call the morning after I unpacked the last box, so, joke's on me.)

WHAT? You do realize that you will become a professional packer and could make a lot of money packing for people. At least you have had a lot of practice lately!

We LOVE, Macey's glasses. Congrats girls! Does the world look better now!

Macey looks great in the new spectacles!! By the way I have astigmatism and all it means is that her eyes are shaped like footballs and so they don't focus properly.
I am so sad about the call back I don't want you to move back to Tennesee!!! :-(... Maybe DJ wont get the job after all....Happy thoughts!!!
