You should have refridgerated it if you were going to "store" it. The ring is dispensed from the pharmacy refridgerated because room/body temp starts the release of the hormones. But, the package insert does say that it can be stored at room temperature, so I suppose as long as conditions weren't extreme, it's okay for short term use.
Regardless, I don't think it's a good idea to switch your day like that. You would have been better off finishing this cycle, and then putting in your new ring early, on a Sunday. But, what's done is done.
While I doubt any loss of effectiveness, you might want to abstain/use a back up method for at least 7 days after inserting the ring again.
