CNYSPAGIRL blogs about all things spa

A slight delay for my new and improved vision January 4, 2011

The house was clean, the laundry was done, the groceries were bought and put away.  All the childcare and carpool arrangements had been made. Well-wishing friends had claimed their assignments in answer to the most welcome question: “How can I help?”  We were on time for our scheduled appointment, even a few minutes early. Everything was ready for my corrective laser eye surgical procedure (Zyoptix), it seems, except the laser.

My husband and I had just pulled into the parking lot of the laser surgery center when my cell phone rang. There was a problem with the laser.  It’s being repaired, but not in time for my procedure that was scheduled to start in 45 minutes.  No, I’m not kidding.  It’s rescheduled for the morning of Thursday 1/6.

So we headed back to the highway, back to our home. To the clean house, with the well-stocked fridge and pantry.  To reverse the childcare and carpool arrangements.   To reschedule the efforts of the well-meaning friends and family.  To worry just a little more.  And we’ll do it all over again in 48 hours.  Well, hopefully not all of it.
