That's so not a good way to title a post. I've decided to help Travis pay for his new glasses. We went to welfare. And I swear I think they've hired the latest caseworkers with a new level of stupid there. They just sent Travis paperwork notifying him that his childcare was about to run out. That would be funny if it wasn't that we're waiting on insurance for him. So Nichole is calling them today to see if they meant her instead of Travis. Idiots. I kid you not, this caseworker has got a brain of mush. Lion's club here wasn't all that helpful. Did try frames, but none fit his lenses. Been trying to get in touch with the Crippled children and Adults but no one answers the phone. Gonna try again yet tomorrow. Travis went to walmart to get a contact lense exam last payday and it turned out to be more money than he had. Kroger offered to pay for the glasses if his gets the exam. Sooooooooooooo. I got my school loan refund yesterday. I told Travis when I picked him up from work that if he spent so much as a dime of his paycheck I'd skin him. He is to make an appointment with the eye doctor who can see him the fastest. He is going to help me pay for the new glasses. And this will be a small fortune for me financially if Kroger backs out on buying the glasses themselves. I don't care how bad the frames look......he's going for cheap and repairable, not glamour. The boy can barely see with the glasses, and without has been a nitemare. husband has tried the last 3 paychecks to get me to go get glasses (needed desperately) for us, but I refuse. I just can't bring myself to go out and get glasses for us when our blind son is doing without and can't see. In my sense of morals that is just plain wrong all the way around. So probably a big mistake. But I'm going to do it knowing it going in. I just can't stand to watch him holding the lense for his good eye up to his face while trying to function, tripping over obvious things, running into everything, and not being able to do things he likes to do anymore. Although this has driven one very basic truth home to Travis that I've never seemed to be able to......... The boy is blind. Sigh. Guess everything does happen for a reason.
