Does The Fun Ever End?

Well, I did it....I screwed up AGAIN!

Last night when I was taking out my contacts to go to bed one popped out and went down the drain.  I was careful to put a towel down first, but the contact fell on the sink part and under the towel and down the drain.

Rick was fast asleep already, but I had no choice.  I had to wake him.

I was careful not to turn on the water.

Rick took apart the sink and ewww gross at all the black stuff we found there.

We searched through it all and....

NO CONTACT LENSE>>>>

Luckily I had an old pair that I can use temporily even though it fits too tight.

I called my eye doctor and she said it would be 100.00 to replace it.

Wait a minute...I have insurance now that I am full time at work.

I called and they have not put me on it yet.

I became full time last December.

Now I have to wait until MOnday to call them and set this up. I also have a back tooth broken off in the back.

So after I get the insurance straightened out I have to make an appointment with my eye doctor and get new lenses.

After they order them it takes a week for them to get back.

So I will be wearing the old lense for over a week.

Lovely....

To top it off I am working today, my job as a cashier in a grocery store until closing.

We are going to be closed Easter.

When these people find that out they go crazy!  It is already a mad house there.  I drove by.

Rick went to cash our income tax check at the bank and even though we have banked there forover 26 years, they made him come and get me and my id before they would cash it....grrr

We drove by the store on the way home and it was packed.

It is freezing cold here today and raining.

Yesterday it was busy too, I don't even want to think about how busy we will be today....

I didn't get my lunch break yesterday until it was 2 hours past due.

Wonder if I will get it today?

We had 5 people call in yesterday.

I work 2:45-11:00 or close.  People will be walking in at 10:59 expecting to take a leisure shopping trip...it happens every night.

I am still tired from yesterday.

I still have not colored any Easter eggs.

I love Rebeccas cute pictures and eggs.  Good job Rebecca!

Please say a prayer for me today.

I need all the help I can get.

Until then, one-eyed Barb says chow,

Awww you poor girl. Too much hit you at once. I had to laugh to myself when you described the black yucky stuff in the drain. I have a long pair of tweezers that I clean ours out with and I did it yesterday so I know from which you speak. Then I put soda and follow it with vinegar. Then pour a teakettle of boiling water down there. lol You wanted to know all that I'm sure. The point is the drain is clean. Too bad it won't stay that way. Happy Easter and glad you are off tomorrow. Paula

talk to your boss right away and get that insurance set up. and go get that tooth fixed or pulled, you don't want to have pain or pay out of pocket for that expense. Awwwww thank you for the mention and compliment for rebecca and her eggs. she did them all by herself and was so proud too. She's out with her sister and all riding the train with the easter bunny. Have a wonderful easter tomorrow and I hope today goes quickly for you. (((((((((hugs)))))))))))
Love ya,
Cindy

Well my dear, just stop screwing up!!  You know I never do...LOL  I went crazy at the store on saturday before Easter.  Why do all the crazy people come through my line?  Then I get blamed because all the Easter stuff is gone.  Oh isn't it fun being a cashier..........We made it though with our cheery "How are you's" and "Did you find everything ok".....             Hugs  Myke  
Hope you eye is doing ok with old lens..........
