Let me just tell you how my day began. It started with a late night return from seeing the girls this weekend who are still in south texas for a summer visit. So, naturally I was unorganized and only wanting to go to bed and think about all the laundry I would have to do tomorrow. And Chase had to work in Decatur today, which is about an hour and a half away. So, he heads off to work about the time I am getting in the shower. I get dressed, have some coffee WITH tiramisu creamer instead of the fat-free stuff and after getting my lunch ready I start out the door. Wait! I can't find my jeep keys! Looking, looking, looking.....Oh CRAP! They are in the glove compartment of Chase's truck! And he is probably almost to Decatur by now! Luckily, I have a wonderful friend, Jamie, who has a wonderful husband who graciously got out of bed to come get me and take me to work. You might be thinking that this was the worst part of my day but really it wasn't. Nope. The hits just keep on comin. I call my sweet husband to tell him I made it to work because he called me three times just to check on my status in the 10 minute ride from home to work. While talking to him on my phone in the hall, my boss walks by me. I smile, she blinks and keeps on walking. I go to the locker room to change into my scrubs. And I realize then that in my jeep is my bag with my badge, gear and most importantly, my ever-so-stylish printed scrub hat. So I have to wear a generic, disposable hat. About six people asked me if I was sick or feeling bad today which means that I look like crap. And I get stuck doing cases with the O.R.'s least favorite surgeon. Everyone's little quirks wore me out! To top it off, I am on call for surgery and I don't have a vehicle if I get called back in!
So, now after complaining about my day so much I want to share with you what got me throught the day. More texts. I could make a whole blog on just what great text messages I get from my sweet family.
First from the sweet husband:
him: Hows ur day. Glad i got u a car (he borrowed a truck for me from another paramedic that was working a 24 at the hospital where I work)
