Shout Out Saturday #26
Happy Saturday everyone! As I wrote yesterday, those of us in the States had the pleasure of coming back from a four day weekend this week, which is usually never fun. That said, it has been a very good, albeit busy, week in the Frugal Rules home. Thankfully I am back to wearing my contacts as opposed to my glasses after my fireworks mishap on the 4th of July. For one reason or another I HATE wearing glasses, and it is always interesting to see the reactions of the littlest members of the Frugal Rules household as they act like they have a different father.
I spent most of the week trying to keep our 18 month old from grabbing my glasses and doing something destructive to them. Unfortunately, without glasses or contacts I would be utterly lost as my vision is so wretched. The events of the past week have really given me pause to wonder if I should bite the bullet and get LASIK surgery done on my eyes. It is not cheap, by any means, but we should be at a point with our HSA account soon where I could look at it as a viable option financially. Beyond that, I am a bit concerned about getting the surgery for my eyes as you only get one pair, but the tradeoff would be quite nice. Have any of you ever had LASIK surgery, and if so, what was it like for you?
It has been another good week for Frugal Rules in the blogosphere. Thanks to everyone who gave us a shout out or included us in their blog carnival. Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
