Another One Bites The Dust....

And another one's gone and another one's gone.

Yup.  A-girl got glasses.

D-man played basketball....or football....with his glasses on (can't remember which now) and broke his hipster glasses about 4 or 5 months ago.  He had another back up pair of regular glasses - since his prescription only costs like $15 for glasses at Zenni Optical.  Since A-girl was ordering, he decided to use his own money and replace his cool glasses.
And, since I have been wearing my glasses sort of semi-sideways on my face since this happened....
....on the first day of our vacation at the beach.  Forgot to tell you about that part of my fabulous trip to the ocean (I forgot to mention that I did have a great visit with my brother in-law and sister in-law on that vacation though - don't want to discount that part of the trip.  There was good mixed in with the not so good!) 
Back to my glasses:  We were getting ready to unpack the van and there was confusion about where to park the van, getting a luggage cart, who was going to be in the van while Rainman moved it, whether we could do it in one trip, etc. 
L-girl, was being the helpful messenger to tell us what the latest plan was and then rushed back to get in the van. 
Meanwhile, Rainman had decided she was going to stay with me while he rearranged the van, so he had just started backing up when she tried to get back in.  He was not happy.  I heard him yell from the other side of the parking lot.  She was upset and came running to my open arms. 
Seriously, picture it in your was just like in the movies....just not in slow motion with our hair blowing in the breeze.  I threw my arms open and said something like, "He didn't mean it, sweetie...he just didn't want you to get hurt...blah, blah, blah".
Anyway, when she threw herself into my arms, I put my head down to apparently complete the hug with my skull and the side piece of my glasses snapped off when her head hit them.
So, I got to get these....
The kids actually picked them out for me and I sort of love them.  I feel young  Emoji
