In no particular order, these were the best moments of the past week.
I am, by nature, NOT a confrontational person, but I knew something was up when they didn't call my name for over a half hour after my appointment time back in February. Once they did the initial glaucoma test and reading of the eye chart, the nurse led me to a SECOND waiting room that was packed. I stopped in my tracks and demanded to know how long this was going to take! (VERY uncharacteristic for me, but by this point I was pretty irritated. I see plenty of health care professionals who are on time, so it IS possible to keep to a schedule.) The nurse came back and said they were running an hour and a half behind!! Seriously? I told her that was unacceptable and walked out. I was pretty proud of myself.
Anyhow, I made a third appointment at the smaller office closer to my house...and it was perfect! (Why we have never gone there is beyond me!) I was the only patient in the place, and I was in and out in 45 minutes! I got a new set of trial contacts, and my contacts to last through the year should be arriving within 10 days. Since I've been wearing my glasses for so long, I haven't had the need for a pair of sunglasses. I drove myself straight to CVS and bought myself a new pair! So very happy with the new office and doctor and sunglasses and contacts!
Those were the sweet and favorite moments of the week. Fingers crossed that my team does well at the Academic Competition and then I plan to REST on Sunday!
