Gloom, despair and agony on me~

What a crummy few days I've had! We went to Grand Rapids for a little get-away and I ended up with a migraine mid Saturday afternoon. By 7 p.m. I was in bed with the blankets over my head and on Sunday morning I just wanted to come home. So no fun breakfast out, no window shopping. Drove through Mc Donald's and was home by 11 a.m. :(
Then Monday morning I got up for work and somehow, I'm still not sure how, I ended up with a glob of liquid hand soap in my eye. I seriously don't know what happened, I know I dropped the bottle and then my skull was on fire. This experience made my weekend migraine a walk in the park. Did I mention I had my contacts in at the time? Yup. So I had to dig my contact out of my eye while trying to flush it. It immediately swelled shut so I had to pry it open to flush it, which made it hurt worse yet. I flushed it every 15 minutes for almost 2 hours and kept a cool cloth on it for the rest of the day. Lights and reading made it hurt worse so after dropping e mails to work (that was fun, "I won't be in. I got soap in my eye.") and my mom (Please pray for me!"), I spent the day laying on the couch whimpering. In the dark.
Naturally I'm not wearing my contacts today. But wait! There's more! In my panic of peeling my contact lens off of my eye, I knocked my glasses out of the medicine cabinet and chipped both (yes both!) of the lenses! Which I have to wear to work, chips and all.
This morning my vision is still a tad blurry in my left eye and I have to consciously open it all the way or I have kind of a half drunk/half flirty/half wink thing happening. The redness is gone but it's still achy. Weirdly, the ache is all the way around the orbit of my eye as though I took a right hook to my face. And of course, excessive eye booger production just to round out the attractiveness factor.
My headache is gone but I'm still taking 800 mg Motrin for my eye ball pain. Which does help, so thank you Jesus.
To recap, spent a couple hundred dollars to spend the weekend curled in a ball in a hotel while the Mr. watched Sweet Home Alabama with the sound down.
Experienced a freak accident, still not sure of the details, that resulted in burning the surface of my eye and possibly my eye socket.
Chipped both lenses of my glasses which I will be wearing to work today.
Had to take a soap-in-my-eye call in at work which will surely result in no shortage of "Wait, tell me again what happened?" moments throughout my day.
Lord, you better wrap me in spiritual bubble wrap today or I might just set my hair on fire.
