The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves – Nesting

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

My hip replacement surgery is a little over a week out, and I’m freaking out.  I’ve spent the last two weekends building a little nest, in hopes that I’ll be comforted by new surroundings.  We purchased new fluffy rugs for the bathroom, new sheets for the spare bedroom because I know that I’m going to want to be left alone for the first few days, and some snack foods I don’t usually indulge in.   I ordered a box of new chews for the dogs so, hopefully, they will be occupied while I’m recuperating.   I still need some sweats or loose lounge pants, and I’ll need to make some food and freeze it so I have easy access to meals.  Other than that, I guess I’m good to go – ugh.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–June 7th Edition

A few weeks ago I ordered some glasses from Zenni.com.  I purchased a single vision pair for a little over $25, and a pair with progressive lenses for about $85.  They would have cost over $800 if I had purchased them from a brick and mortar optical store, and, frankly, I didn’t have the money for that.  I have purchased glasses online before, from another company, but Zenni was having a sale on lenses, so I thought, what the heck.  Either I just wasted $120 (with shipping), or I made the best purchase of the year.
