i cannot remember the last time i actually BROKE a pair of frames. college maybe? we were on a family trip and Andy and i were jumping on the beds in the hotel room and my glasses flew off and i stepped on them. maybe? i scratched the hell out of a lenses helping pack the garage once. but broke frames?
the most recent prescription in a pair i have in my “old glasses” drawer is pre-trifocals. so that is pretty old. and i work tomorrow night. won’t be able to go to the optometrist until tuesday afternoon. and i have no health insurance right now. not for another month.
did i mention my lenses cost $500 because the prescription is so complicated? takes weeks for them to be made too.
fucking universe. what the hell did i do?!
i got a job. i am back and St. David’s. please don’t mention it to anyone. i cannot control who reads my blog (apparently more people than i realize) but please don’t chat about it. of course, the fat lady hasn’t sung yet so my stress is not completely gone.
it has been a very nice welcome at St. David’s. lots of people recognize me and have welcomed me back. i haven’t worked there in 5 years, i think? everyone has been super nice and i am falling back into the hospital routine nicely. they have improved SO many processes it just makes me so happy. my therapist was always trying to get me to quit at HACH. and only now do i realize how much stress and anxiety i was holding while working there. we can speculate until the cows come home as to why, but suffice to say feel good. just waiting for that fat lady to sing.
i have tried to glue the arm of my broken glasses back on. we will see how that works.

You visited Luna’s shop! Cassandra and I went there a week ago or so. I bought a scary looking bottle opener that looks like a Klingon weapon, for $1. I also got a piece of neck froofery that I will wear someday. I quite like Luna’s shop.
We burned our Lucy candle some during snowpocalypse, when we were without power for days on end. It was comforting.
