This is not a month we'll be saving money, since my regular readers know I've been to the dentist.
And then just to keep things interesting, yesterday at work, I felt something a bit "strange" with my distance glasses. It seemed like a lens was "loose." Within a few minutes it popped out, but Baruch Hashem it was in easy view right in front of me. That's much better than the time a few years ago when a lens in my reading glasses somehow disappeared when I was shopping at Rami Levy. That one was never found, but since the glasses had been only about six months old, and I had them in the shop a couple of weeks earlier for a different repair I didn't have to pay for a new lens. So next week, before my dentist appointment, I'll have to go to downtown Jerusalem to the optician to have the glasses fixed.
If you're wondering why I sound pretty calm about these problems, inconveniences, expenses etc. I must tell you that it's easy to put it all in perspective when following the bima Ima's saga on Superman Sam. She has the right to rant; I don't.
