yesterday afternoon

01. I drove to the train station
02. took the train
03. after the 30-min ride I was downtown
04. took the subway
05. ran some errands
06. took the the subway again
07. went to the optometrist
08. to get new prescription sunglasses as I lost mine , pls do not ask.
09. found out that the eye doctor (not mine, mine went back to England so I met the senior partner, a German doctor) got the right eye with the left eye mixed-up... and issued the wrong prescription for the glasses I just had made !!!!
10. no wonder I couldn't get used to them and I thought it was a matter of time and adjustment....
11. Now we'll see what my health insurance company has to say about it... I don't want to speak to the eye doctor again.
12. Met Mr Mar for coffee. To celebrate I am getting the right glasses this time. And our 23rd meet-a-versary !!
13. I 've joined the
cyber cruise , which starts tomorrow! check it out and remember to drop by on monday, when the cruise crew will be touring Barcelona :) - Create custom images

  1. So, what happened to your sunglasses??

    :) Sorry, just had to...

    Mine is up too. Have a wonderful day.

  2. If a doc does not know his left from his right there is real trouble. I hope you got that sorted out.
    Happy 23rd meet-a-versary!
    Enjoy your cruise!
    Terrific Thursday Thirteen!

    Happy TT'ing!

  3. I wonder what for a cow eyedocter that is ! Should you change your eyes now from right to left ? I hope he doesn't operate ! Congratulations for your meeting birthday, we don't remember the date only the month, because we had emptied a bottle of Schnaps and from that day on stayed together ! We met and he never left my bed (isn't that a nice poeme ?)

  4. happy meet-a-versary!! I. love. trains. I don't know what it is about them, but I love them, I think, as much as I love airplanes. we don't have many around here, let our rail system go to waste. happy TT, mine's up!

  5. Yikes on the mix-up with your glasses! I hope you can get it sorted out without too much hassle.

    Happy Meet-a-versary! :)

  6. ugh! he messed up your glasses prescription? I'm surprised you didn't get a big headache! Hope it got all fixed.

  7. Happy Thursday! Here's to trains, subways, right glasses and meet-a-versaries and cyber cruises!!

    I decided to give the Irish thing a break for my TT ~ I blog about things Irish enough~! and yes I like to be different that way. hee

    Here's an Irish Marriage Blessing in honour of your meet-a-versary:

    May God be with you and bless you.
    May you see your children's children.
    May you be poor in misfortunes
    and rich in blessings.
    May you know nothing but happiness
    from this day forward.


  8. No no no! You don't get away with this! I'm definitely ASKING! WHAT happened to the old sunglasses??? This sounds like a post all it's own! FESS UP!

    Is Mr. Mar coming on the cruise? Or can WE be cabin mates? ... well either way works for me... I WOULD like to MEET Mr. Mar!

  9. Phew! That was a lot of things you did yesterday afternoon. I like your banner. It is so cool. I've read a lot about the cyber cruise. Wanted to join but then I've never traveled so I don't think I'd be of any use to the group.
    Thanks for the visit.

  10. That sucks royal! I would make the Dr. pay for the second pair of glasses since it was his fault. I hope I don't get a doctor like that.

    I'm up too.

  11. Hola desde España! Hueles la primavera?


  12. How awful - that is not a small mistake. I hope it all gets sorted for you very soon. How infuriating for you!

    I'll come back and check out your cyber cruise!

  13. It seems like the incompetance level EVERYWHERE has risen, dramatically. I understand human error...BUT, that is all the Eye Doctor Does---Examine and perscribe for "eyes"....Hello?? That had to be completely exasperating, Mar....And I see and hear this everywhere now, more than ever. What do you think that is? I'm sure these kinds of things have always happened, but, to the degree it is happening now? I don't think so.

    The Cruise sounds like a lot of fun....! I look forward to touring Barcelona with you, my dear...

  14. Sounds like a busy day! That was some situation with the eye dr.! I am often afraid of medical mistakes.

  15. Sounds like a busy day! I am always losing my sunglasses. My dh finally bought me one of those cords to hang them around my neck. I've had my current pair for over a year.

  16. Oh, I hope you get that sunglasses right by now! You'll need them on the cruise - you know the reflections from the sea.... *s*

    We're sooo looking forward to come to Barcelona! Yeah!

    *jumping up and down*

  17. Are you seeing double? I love that cat photo below!

    Where some sunscreen!

  18. How annoying and scary that the doctor messed up your prescription! I hope you can get new glasses without any problems! Sounds like you had a busy day.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  19. I hope the glasses mess gets fixed soon. Wow, I sure hope that DD's don't get messed up...her doc seemed very good though.

  20. Happy (belated) 23rd meet-a-versary!

    Tell the German doctor he´s a Trottel if you´ll ever meet him again =)

    Looking forward to see you at the cruise!

  21. Sounds busy! I hope that you get the glasses thing all straight!
