One of the greatest perks of working for this company has for me always been the fact that we get free glasses. I've not bought my own glasses for I guess 17 years now. I thought there for a while I was going to have to and I knew I'd never be able to afford the quality of eye wear that I've become accustomed to. But the ones I'm wearing now, the ones that I got today are by far the most expensive ones ever. Prices have gone up it is true but technology has improved also and therefore I have the best progressive lenses available. I have the highest index possible which makes my lenses very thin. I have transitions, (the ones that change with the light)I have anti reflective coating and a completely rimless frame with rubber like temples that are so light weight I cannot feel them on my face. And the cost of these glasses had I had to buy them? Almost $800! I think they are the most valuable thing I own, I think my car is not worth much more than that! Very nice. I like them.
I'm getting a little more comfortable with the people that are our customers in this store. They are different and more challenging than any customers I've ever experienced. The manager, (my boss), is a little depressed with the situation as the sales are down and she has tried for two years to get things going but nothing seems to work. I'm determined to try and help all I can.
Friday Haleigh and I are spending the day together and that night we get to go see her mom in a play. I'm excited about that. I then have to work all weekend and all next week until Friday and I have three days off right in a row. That will be nice.
SO, that's all my news for now.

Work is very interesting. As I've mentioned before the people in Renton Washington are a little different. I'm still finding my footing so to speak with them but I'm enjoying the challenge.
The commute is sometimes not so fun but I can live with that.
Today I have been off and have been quite lazy but it is a rainy day and it is nice to be able to relax.
So things are going good, even if I don't get to see as much of Haleigh as I'd like, I think she and I are spending this coming Friday together so we'll make the most of it.
Hoping you have a good week and I'll try and check in more often. My heart wants to write but by the time I get home I'm so tired. Maybe I'll get back used to working soon.

I have a kitchen table and chairs. My kitchen cabinets are IKEA and so that is also where my table came from. I like IKEA. It fits and matches perfectly. And I love it. Looks very modern.
When I was young I longed for antiques and now that I'm getting older I long for more modern looks, go figure!
