The dilation went just fine. The lights didn't bother me at all. I was pretty much able to see again by the end of the appointment. Unfortunately, I missed 2 calls from DH while I was in there. He sounded upset on his messages. He called me back right before I went back in to the optometrist's office. Luckily, they were understanding and let me talk to him before going in.
Come to find out, they're moving DH today. He's going to be switching sites every 30 days. Which means that more than likely, he won't be getting R&R for our anniversary. (Oct. 16th) BOOOOO! But, we might be able to get it for Thanksgiving. So there's something to look forward to.
I went to Eyemart Express to get my glasses. I had to wait 2 1/2 hours for both pairs of glasses. (I wanted sunglasses for when I drive. The sun messes with me something serious.) I went back there at 3:00, when they told me to. I got my regular pair, but the sunglasses weren't dark enough, or so they said, so I was told to wait another 20 mins. Okay, no problem. An hour goes by and the people are staring at me, but not talking to me. I finally had enough and asked them WTH was going on. "Ok let us go check on them." When the guy got out "I'm sorry, there's a bit of bad news. They were trying to tint them and broke them. We have to remake the sunglasses." Then he says, "I'm sorry I know I told you 20 mins and you've been waiting an hour. You'll just have to come back tomorrow morning to pick them up."
I left there acting like I was going to CHOKE the guy. At least I have a pair so I can see where I'm driving now. lol
Also, I got a call from Rear D. Yeah, the 1st Sgt wants to come by here to "see how we're doing". I think they want to make sure the house hasn't gone to hell and to make sure we're not living in filth. (It has happened with some spouses in our unit.) I figure this will be a good chance to ask all the questions that I didn't get answered before the deployment. (Redcross messages, call rosters, things like that)
Wow, I didn't mean for this to be that long. lol Sorry ladies!
