So my morning started off a bit rough....I changed the sheets on our bed and managed to jam two of my knuckles (ow they still hurt!). Went about my morning business. I came downstairs and everything was really blurry. I already have a spanking new set of contacts in so I'm starting to get nervous. After 15 minutes and it not getting any better I really start to panic. I think well I'll take my contacts out and clean them just in case. I took them out and wow I could see perfectly! Was my vision problem miraculously cured overnight?! NOPE! Somehow I had managed to sleep in my contacts and put the new ones over the old ones! I swear once you hit 31 things are downhill from here:)

LOL! When I wore contacts, I would occasionally put both in the same eye and couldn't figure out why I couldn't see anything...

That's too funny! Don't feel too bad. My daughter, who's 12, one day say that her eyes were getting blurry and I need to make her another eye appt. So then I look at her and told her that she doesn't need to see the doctor I already know what's wrong with her. She looks at me in awe like I'm super smart or something. So after basking in my daughters adoration - I told her the reason her eyes are blurry is because her glasses were on top her head instead of her nose! :)

TJF - the same thing happened to my 13 yr old son - but as a mother I panicked when he told me he couldn't see and rushed him to our eye doctor only for the eye doctor to tell me he had two contacts in one eye. I probably would not have panicked so much regularly but he happened to be very sick with a high fever and I thought it may have something to do with that. So it's not an age thing!
