Temp to hire

So today a temp started here at Onyx as the Legal and Compliance admin. I am very happy she is here. She is sweet, bright and nice. I think things will work out just fine.

Contacts

Wearing my contacts today to work for the first time. I want to rub my eyes so badly and I can't. Argh. It is going OK. Each day gets better. But it still isn't great. Saturday I wore them for 8 1/2 hours and yesterday 10 1/2. For now I can't wear them for more than 12 hours. I go back to the eye doctor next Tuesday to see how things are going.
Oh, when I was putting my right one in this morning it popped out and went flying. I couldn't see a damn thing so I had to put on my glasses and I was crawling around the bathroom floor looking for the contact. I finally found it. Behind the faucet. I didn't think it would have bounced over there. But thank gawd I found it!

Weekend

Nice weekend. Didn't do a whole lot. But I did get a lot of things done around the house. Paid bills, went through the mail, cleaned the house (saving vacuuming for tonight), did laundry, voted, did our flex spending paperwork, etc. And I also watched a lot of movies.

You know ... I don't think wearing contacts should be so difficult.

When I first wore contacts, I put them on with no problem and they fit fine. I had no issues with it (other than I kept using fingers to adjust glasses that I wasn't wearing!).

The only problem was that I couldn't wear them in the shower. They really dried out my eyes. But now, as long as I don't get my face too wet, they're OK.

Are you sure this brand of contacts is best for you? :-\

I totally do the glasses adjustment thing.
This is a trial for the contacts. I have an appt next Tuesday to check in with my doctor. I will let him know of the issues. But hard contacts are different than soft and it takes time to get used to them. My complaint with soft contacts was I could see much better with my glasses.
Even with the soft contacts I had issues getting them in my eye at first.
