    Not a teacher


    The word itself can be mixup or mix-up.
    1) I got the days mixed up and (I) went (for) to my doctor's appointment on the wrong day.
    2) I must have mixed up these two days, and went (gone) there on the wrong day.
    3) I always mix up (not mixup) Saturday and Sunday because I am off work.
    4) I always confuse Saturday with Sunday because I am off work.
    5) There was a mixup, and I went to my doctor's appointment on the wrong day.

    I is always capitalized. Days of the week are capitalized.
    Off work is more common usage than off from work, I believe. *

    5) There was a mix-up, and I went to my doctor's appointment on the wrong day.

    As a noun, it's mix-up.
