Friendses, I got my lenses

Sometimes good things happen to those who blog.

My wonderful, kind, and thoughtful friend C informed me she was "so bored" last night that she was reading my blog :-)

She read about my misadventures on the road to clearer vision. I know all too well that her hubby has spent a portion of his own life with coke-bottle thick glasses just like me. Therefore I am listening in earnest when she calls me this morning to tell me "something about contacts".

It was really meant to be. She called at 8:55 a.m. . . . a time I should not even be home answering my phone. I should have been in my warm, cozy van carting the 3 Things over to Thing 2's preschool to drop him off. But the stars were not aligned - yet - and due to the fact that we had all had little sleep the past night, we all woke up fairly late.

C had been holding the holy grail of contact lens ordering info from me, and I hadn't even known it (nor had she known how desperately I had been in the market for new lenses).

Check out Coastal Contacts.

You can order contacts ONLINE - with no hassle, no problems, NO PRESCRIPTION and NO FREAKING COST FOR SHIPPING. And they are a CANADIAN company!!! (But they do ship to the US, my American friends.)

Even my brand new, shiny, sexy black boots can not get me that excited. Not even double super fudge brownies, hot from the oven and oozing chocolate sauce . . . WELL, let's not start blowing things out of proportion here.

Come home to mama.


(In 3-5 business days, that is).

LOL... I can so relate. People will call me and start out saying, "the other night when I was bored...."

At least you got hooked up.

Well that is terrific news. But I have to agree not quite as great as double chocolate brownies!

Sweet! Don't you love how things come together so perfectly sometimes.

I forwarded this to my mom- she's having contact lens order issues, too.

Thanks for the tip! I will check them out next time I have to re-order. DH just got lenses . . . maybe we'll use them for his!
