I'm having LASIK today!!!

I'm excited, but also a little nervous. Please pray that everything goes okay and the doctor does a good job.

Thanks!

    --you haven't updated.
    I hope that doesn't mean that you are unable to see!

    No, it just means I'm a bad blogger. My LASIK turned out very well! :-)

    I've heard of it, but I haven't really explored it. Everything I've heard about it though is excellent, so I probably need to check it out a little further. :)

Do you use phonebooks anymore?

I don't. But we keep getting them from different companies, multiple books every year. It feels like so much waste; I hate throwing stuff away!

I came across this website recently that allows you to opt-out of phonebook delivery. If you don't use phonebooks anymore, check it out.

    oh, I so have to log on. I've gotten into using 1800-free-411 - it works! (Although I haven't checked my cell phone bill, yet!)

    Awesome! We get about 6 phone books a year and I never use them. I always feel bad about tossing them.
