Broken Glasses - AF

According to An Island Life: 

"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."

I really feel like Piggy from "Lord of the Flies" these days:


A couple of weeks ago, one of the nose pads on my glasses broke off. Boo hoo! I was so sad about it. HBL was sitting next to me when it happened. In my grief, I exclaimed, "Aw man, babe! Now I'm gonna need new glasses! Ugh, we don't have the money for me to go buying a new pair of glasses!" Then, my sage husband says:

"Why don't you just go get them fixed and have them put another nose pad in?"


Yeah. I was gonna do that...

My question today:

Have you ever replaced something completely, when all you had to do was get it repaired?

If you’d like to participate in Aloha Friday, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at today's installation of Aloha Friday at An Island Life. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Ha! I would buy new glasses too. Though, I do hate to spend so much on stuff like that. They are crazy expensive, and contacts? Geesh!

Happy Friday :)

Not sure of your question.

However I didn't even know they could fix it. I'd have thought of new glasses too :0

I think I tend to buy new laptops instead of repairing them..but that's because a new laptop is only a little bit more expensive!

Yes, especially when it comes to electronics. I'm can't wait for something to get fixed so I usually convince myself to just buy a new one! :-)

LOL...this reminds me of the time I dropped my glasses on the floor and they broke in half!! Oookay!!

But, time, on a different pair of glasses, one of the sides broke off (that goes over your ear). Anyway..I could have just got a new pair, but I TAPED IT TOGETHER for a long time! My hair kind of covered the tape, but I was always self conscious when it was windy!!! LOLOLOL. My husband would call me ghetto!
