I'm About To Whine ...

So, Sunday we went to church. All of us. And it has been a while since every person in this house was healthy enough to go to church at the same time. So long, in fact, there was actual rejoicing when we all walked through the door. No, literally! People at the door (OK, person, Derek!!) watched us walk in and said "YAY, you're all healthy!!". And we heard similar comments from a few others through the day. We also all made it to Home Group for Bible Study that night! Yeah, it was wonderful!

Then I woke up on Monday morning not feeling quite myself. I wrote it off thinking that I had maybe just not slept well... But by the middle of the day, I knew. I am sick. STINK! Thought I had escaped the big bad bug!

And THEN ... Yesterday I called the eye doctor to make an appointment. Now, ya know we have been trying to save money. Because, ya know, we have none! So when I opened the last pair of contacts IN NOVEMBER, I figured I had better make em last cause we could not afford to get more! So, I stretched em out knowing that my last appointment was in January and if I could last til this January, new ones would be covered by insurance - clever, no? So, I called to make my appointment (tomorrow is one year) and found out that, hello, we are on a 24 month plan! Meaning I cannot get another exam until NEXT January! And, they will not sell you more contacts when your prescription is more than a year old. Arrrggghhhh!

Oh yeah, one more thing ... my glasses, they BROKE!

So, I convinced the lovely lady at Costco to sell me one box of contacts today - and we happened to have a Costco gift certificate (Thank You Father God!!!) that covered them. But, they cannot fix my glasses ... SO, if anyone knows where a person can get a pair of glasses, contacts and an eye exam for, oh, I dunno, FREE, let me in on that little goodie! Thanks!

So, here I sit, feeling like a freight truck is sitting on my sinuses and wearing contacts even though I am pretty sure my eyeball is turned inside out and being scratched by a brillo pad. Yeah, it is fun!

OK, I just needed to get that whining over with before my man gets home!

On the other hand, my man is REALLY good at taking care of an ailing wife, the girls are contentedly playing together as I type, and the roast my Hubby made on Sunday seems to be multiplying in the fridge and lasting longer than it should ... kinda like a certain fish and loaf of bread you may have heard of!

Because, yesiree bobby, my God is just THAT good!

Oh, yes He is!

And I am soooo done whining now!

Your welcome!

So, how is your day going?

3 of ya left some love:

Yay, you, for turning your "whining" post into a way to praise God through it.

If I can think of something on the eye exam/glasses I will let you know.
