Well it finally happened. I had a doctor's apt on Tuesday, October 3rd and 9:45am. Got up, had my two drops in my eyes, took a shower got dressed and made it down to the doctor's office, drove around for a time, couldn't find a parking spot, but alas, they had valet parking because the parking is so critical. I managed to enlist the help of the person doing the valet parking and I took the elevator to my doctor's office. When I got in the gal said Monday is such a mad house, I figured she must have been on crack or something because this was Tuesday. Went to check in and gave my information and the person found me but said my apt was for Tuesday and Today was Monday. Did I believe him, nope, check my phone and sure enough it was Monday. Drat, I told the young man, check with the doctor because maybe she can fit me in, BECAUSE I WAS NOT GOING BACK HOME. Well, Dr said it was common, and she saw me and it took all of 15 min. I had to go downstairs and get some lab work done, got the fecal test to mail in and I was good to go. Guess what???? I slept in on Tuesday. YEA FOR ME.

    P.S. I just thought that the proverbial silver-lining to your story, is that you were twenty-four hours early for the scheduled appointment time & not twenty-four hours late for it. emoticon

    Your account tickled me, Bev. Although I often get confused about the day of the week (especially during the summer months when my Bible study takes a break from meeting weekly) such a thing as going to an appointment a day early has not happened to me.

    However, several years back, I did for the whole year tending to believe that I was a year older than I actually was at the time. In an e-mail one of my girlhood friends had mentioned our true age & I laughed thinking how confused she was thinking that we were a year younger than we actually were. Then in an e-note some days later, her twin brother said something about being the same age his sister believed herself to be & I was considering how such wrong thinking must be a "twin thing". It was some months later that I realized that they had both been correct & I had been in the wrong. emoticon emoticon Actually, I benefited by getting to spend two years at one age. emoticon

    God bless!

    Those sleep-ins are bliss! That was something positive out of making a mistake--which, although not "officially" retired, I have done also!

    You were lucky your doctor could fit you in - good for you! I've been there on real day vs. appointment day. I'll get a date or time stuck in my head, and then I won't check the calendars to be sure I'm right! Ooops. Today, however, is really Sunday, Oct. 8. Enjoy! emoticon

    Haha haha. That's funny. I do that all the time and I'm working. Never know what day it is. I'd have a hard time passing the tests if I had to answer that question.

    Bev -- glad you got to be seen on the day you showed up. emoticon

    I can sure relate! I mis-read my last appointment card. The bone-density scan was for 2:30 p.m. this past September, my next annual checkup is for 9:30 a.m. in August 2018. I showed up for the BD scan at 9:30, and they were nice enough to fit me in. I was just sure I was right and they were wrong, but when I got home and read the card they'd written the two appointments on I realized....I was the one who was mistaken. emoticon

    I get the "what day is this" as since my Hubby retired in June I sometimes thing it's one day when it's another. I even wrote a letter and put the next day's date on it cos I thought it was Wednesday when it was Tuesday! Glad you got to see the Doctor.
