Late night + Early morning = Stupid Sara

As always happens when I am at home in SC, I stayed up late into the night spending time with my sisters. By the time I got ready for bed, I was bleary-eyed and sleepy and ready to hit the sheets.

Unfortunately I don't have the vacation time to take this whole week off, but at least I can take my work with me and log the time from here. Thus I was up at 6:30 this morning quietly going through my morning routine so as not to wake the rest of the house. Suddenly, there is a five alarm fire in my eyeball! The tears are immediately flowing full force down my cheeks and I am writhing in pain in front of the bathroom mirror. Clearly, there is something wrong with my contact but it hurts so bad, I can't open my eye to get it out!

I finally pry the contact out and desperately flush my eye with water, contact solution, anything that might help the burning, pulsing and swelling. As I reach for my contact solution, I suddenly realize that is not my contact solution but Nate's. Which is totally different than mine and contains hydrogen peroxide. Which I used to refill one side of contact case last night. Which then soaked my contact all night. Which I then inserted directly into my eye. I basically attempted to dissolve my eyeball this morning with hydrogen peroxide.

Needless to say, my eye is not a pretty sight today. After much flushing, it still burns in the corners and the red is still very noticeable. Luckily, I packed my glasses as an afterthought Friday morning as we were walking out the door. Let's just say, glasses will always be on my packing list from now on, just in case. At least I am getting some good mileage out of my new glasses!
