The Monday Blues

Since I began working, I’ve liked Mondays. After a weekend of chaos it’s nice to go to my quiet little office and lose myself in things that make sense.

But not today. Today has been the Monday from hell!

It started last night, with projectile vomiting, care of P. Thankfully, my resident Spider Slayer (also known as the BH), can cope with sick. Unlike me.

But it meant P wasn’t going to school today, which in turn meant I couldn’t go to work.

That didn’t deem so bad last night, as I’m behind with loads of stuff, and I decided to look upon the day as a break from the norm (which is always good!)

Unfortunately a ravenous mosquito decided to sleep with me. Stupid bug obviously hasn’t been told us smokers aren’t supposed to get eaten alive!

But that wasn’t the worst. The worst was my own stupidity. Though I’m being harsh upon myself, as in all fairness I was still half asleep when I attempted to put my new contact lenses in. How the heck was I to know I’d picked up the wrong bottle of solution to rinse my lenses in? Bloody knew when the peroxide hit my eye! Still sore, and still feeling sorry for myself.

Peroxide in your eye!!?? That can't be good! Poor you.

My Monday is just beginning and I'm not optimistic about it. Let's keep our fingers crossed that our days get better.

As an (ex-) contact lens wearer, I was always concerned I was going to soak my lenses in something painful - after all, it's difficult to see with no lenses in, isn't it?

Poor you.

It sounds just like my week. I hope your eye doesn't sting too bad.
