The myopic's lament

I lost another of my contacts today. I say another, because obviously, in the 20 years since I've been wearing contacts, this has happened before. About 4 or 5 times before; and if memory serves, I've only ever managed to find the lost lense on two previous occasions. Since I haven't needed, or even wanted to go out (too cold), I'm sure it must be in the flat somewhere, but though I've checked and double-checked each room, so far I haven't found it.

I hate to have to say this, but I'm already fairly certain I'll be making another visit to the optician's as soon as they open on Tuesday; and I hope they can get me a replacement by Saturday. I can't say I'm thrilled at the prospect of having blurry vision for a week, esp. with all the snow and (black) ice we've been having the last couple of weeks. I can't remember the last time we had a real winter like this...

In other news: there's been a reorg at work, and from Jan. 18th, I'll be reporting to a new manager. Who wants to have a chat with me about whether my vision for my future within the department meshes with her own ideas for it some time next week, or so I was told when she swung by my desk yesterday.

ETA: Found it! Unfortunately, by treading on it...which means that trip to the optician's is definitely in my immediate future.
