Life for me is rarely boring. I seem to suffer mild mishaps (generally caused by my own klutziness) that keep life interesting and, at times, a bit challenging.
This weekend I headed up to Canada to check on my grandma. It was a quick trip involving a flight to Calgary, a long drive to Edmonton, a visit with my grandma, an overnight hotel stay, a long drive back to Calgary, and a flight home. Pretty standard stuff.
Or should have been.
I lost my contact early Saturday morning when I was trying to get ready. Oops! I couldn't find it anywhere so I finally gave up and began the drive using the one eye that contained a contact. Unfortunately for me, I'd lost that contact some months previously and had been using an old prescription which didn't really correct my vision that well. So, there I was trying to navigate downtown Edmonton on one not-so-great eye in the dark.
I only made 6 wrong turns including 2 complete loops but I finally made it to the highway. What a relief! From then on it was easy sailing.
I'd sure hate for life to get dull.
