Miss 13 has been seeing the optometrist yearly since 4 years back when she first started to complain that she can’t see well.
But everytime, the optometrist says that she’s still slightly below borderline to require glasses.
Until a week ago when the optometrist says that since Miss 13 says that she can’t see the writings on the whiteboard at school, he’ll prescribe a pair of glasses for her to be used when she needs to see something far.
Her power is still quite low but kesian lah kat dia kan kalau she has to strain her eyes everytime she wants to read something on the whiteboard or watch the movies or read the road signs or look at handsome boys .
But luckily at school, they mostly use their Macs to do their work and when in classes that use the whiteboards, she sits in front so tak lah teruk sangat.
And today, we went to pick up her glasses.
Luckily with our private insurance, we chose the one with hospital cover plus extras and we chose optical, dental, physio and another one which we can’t remember as the extras.
So, with the optical cover, every family member who needs glasses can have 2 pairs of glasses+ lenses each year without having to pay any gap.
The private health cover will cover the whole bill.
Selama ni only The Other Half yang has been using this extra since dia sorang aje yang pakai glasses kan.
But since last week, Miss 13 pun dah joined him jugak.
Jenuhlah I tolong dia mencari glasses idaman hati dia minggu lepas to suit her growing face and to suit the stage where she’s not yet a woman but not a kid any more, hehehe…
Glasses yang I like ada yang memang dia tak berkenan langsung and ada glasses yang dia suka, I pulak tak berkenan…
We finally found 2 that everyone likes (including the optician, hahaha).
I pair of purple glasses and 1 pair of goldish brown glasses.
Dia tengah tak larat sebab I suruh dia senyum tunjuk her metal mouth as well tu yang dia bagi I jelingan maut .
Lepas pergi kedai ambil the glasses and doing some shopping, balik rumah we all terus kemas the guest bedroom.
We took out the elliptical machine and store it in the shed for the time being (The Other Half kata macam permanently aje nak store in the shed tu, hahaha), took out all the junk that we store in there, arranging and making the bed nicely, rearranging the other stuff in there so the room looks habitable.
Penat weh kerja mengemas ni so for dinner tadi, I made something simple sahaja.
We had baked chicken wings, baked veges, mashed potato and green salad.
The chicken wings I dah marinate awal2 after lunch tadi so petang tadi tinggal masuk dalam oven and bake them.
I baked some sweet potatoes, garlic, red onion wedges, carrots and capsicum in olive oil, salt and pepper, dried thyme and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
The mashed potato tu pulak I used butter, cream and cheese. Masa nak makan, drizzle it with melted butter, alangkah sedapnya lemak berkrim banget!
