Another Finish

I finished the binding on this quilt this morning and am mighty glad to have it done, as I started it quite a while ago. I'm giving it to my son along with the first bug strippy I made, which will be for his friend Mary's little boy, who is about a year old.

My younger son and I spent a large part of the day in Brunswick at the eye doctor's. He's had a progressive lens for three years and really hated it, plus it was past time to get his eyes checked. I went into shock when I was presented with the bill; and when I asked for an explanation, I was told we were being charged for the frames, the lenses, the prescription for the left eye and the prescription for the right eye, which I didn't understand at all.

This has been bothering me all day, so tonight I dug out the bills from the eye doctor from the last time we went. I couldn't find any corresponding charges for the prescriptions, so either I misunderstood what I was told or this is something new. Either way it's not sitting well with me, so we will go back tomorrow and straighten it out. There's an optical shop two doors down from the eye doctor, and all they do is make glasses. Maybe their prices will be a little less shocking.

My husband, who has been away on business for the last month, is coming home from Memphis tomorrow; so my son and I will be driving down to Portland to pick him up at the airport. It'll be so good to have him home again.

I love the quilt, it is a pattern I have never seen anything like before, and I think that it will be wonderful for a man. It seems like wherever I go anymore I get sticker shock. I usually do take my glasses somewhere else to be made, so hopefully that will work out more reasonably for you.
