Eyes don't work that way

Today's Bridge: I rather botched a 2NT because I was playing as if it were 3NT - I had S K-6-5 H A-J-9-x-x D A-x C A-9-x and Brent had S A-Q-9-x-x H K D 10-x-x-x C 8-x-x. From K-Q-J-10-7 of clubs, Raymond led the seven, and it ran to my nine. With control of every suit, I decided to duck a spade to establish the suit against a 4-1 split, but it wasn't necessary - in the worst case, I cash three top spades and lose one, then win the return, cross to the king of hearts for the last spade, and back to my remaining ace. As it was, the spades were 3-2 and the Q-10 of hearts fell under the K-A, so I made two overtricks anyway. Raymond made a 2NT next, and then Brent opened 2NT and just made it. Raymond started the second game with 1NT and an overtrick, and then Ryan left him in 2S with a singleton spade and a decent diamond fit. We only set them two, but it's tough to say whether there were more to be had.

Today's Work: We're taking on a final few efforts this week, and I've been given a week to get my eyes working again and start driving to work. That certainly doesn't give me enough time to see a proper ophthalmologist, so I'm stuck going to Lenscrafters this weekend and hoping that I can get the new glasses immediately and that they completely fix the problem in a day. Thanks, boss.

I was up late last night, rather sick, and I don't know which meal caused it. Likely a combination. I can't imagine it'll be that bad tomorrow, but at least I do have most of a week to get into shape to drive to work every day again.
