Wait, What Day is it?

Last week I thought I had a contact stuck in my eye. After years of wearing contacts, this was a first. My girly parts could fall on the ground,  my skin could sluff off, I could go deaf and be fine. Losing my sight has always been a HUGE fear for me. I made an appointment with an Optometrist  and Mr. Bernie drove me to the Eye Doctor.

It turns out that I just irritated my eye looking for a non existent contact. While I was there I got an eye exam. I was so glad that I did, as my eyes have really changed in a couple years. I hate the question, “Does this look clearer on number one or two?”  I always feel like I’m going to answer wrong and will have contacts that make me go cross eyed.  It turns out I did a good job and was given a new set of contacts to try out. Before I left, they made a follow up appointment for Tuesday, April 10.  I even wrote it in my calendar.

Yesterday was not the 10th. I was hell bent that my appointment was Monday at 9:30am. Don’t ask me why. I still don’t understand why I thought that. My Mom’s birthday was on Sunday the 8th. So I should have known that Monday would be the 9th. I left work and drove up to the Dr.’s office. I presented myself to the receptionist. She looked at me funny and looked through all the Dr.s charts for the day. She asked who I was there to see. I told her the name and she replied, “The Dr. isn’t here on Monday’s. What is your name and I’ll look you up?” I gave it to her and she said, “Noooooo,  your appointment is for tomorrow at 9:30am”  Arrggggggg!!

I went back to work and told Mr. Bernie that I filled in my calendar wrong.  I must have put the wrong dates in my fill in the date book. He looked at my book, looked at the calendar and just laughed. They did match. I didn’t write the dates in wrong. I just had my way of thinking all messed up.

I’m going to try going to the Eye Doctor today. Wish me luck!



  1. LOL, I hope it went well in the end.

  2. I have had that happen to me… I don’t know why, but I always goof up my eye dr’s appointments. I wrote about my last visit… http://www.feelingbeachie.com/time-after-time

    I have also done the same thing to my eye – fishing around for a contact that wasn’t there (and also had one stuck in the back of my eye). I don’t miss those days… I did lasik a few years back…

  3. I think you need some R&R girl!
    I’ve had the opposite happen. Receptionist called me to remind of my appointment…that happened the Friday before. She said “This is to remind you of your appt. on Friday”.
    I said “Um, what appt.?”
    She said “You made an appt. for this Friday.”
    I said “I just had my appt. LAST Friday.”
    She paused…..then said “OMG, I’m sorry, someone printed out the wrong appt. schedule. I’m SO sorry!”
    We had a good laugh. Happens to the best of us!

    • Oh, that is funny. Better to be told you have an appointment and don’t really have one. That would have made me chuckle too.

  4. As someone who was born with crossed eyes, wore an eye patch for a lazy eye and at age four had surgery to correct my crossed eyes, I will tell you that you don’t want crossed eyes. Now remember, appointment, TODAY.

    • Oh, wow. I have a lazy eye as well. The Dr wanted Mom and Dad to tie a string to the door knob and have me stare at it for an hour a day. They refused, afraid I would go cross eyed. So it just wanders at will.
