Friday Fragments

Yah! Hooray! It's FRIDAY! I am running on some major doses of caffeine, and I am so glad to have a couple of days coming up when I can sleep in. They are way overdue, I tell ya.

And, being Friday, it's time for Friday Fragments. All the schtuff that doesn't warrant a post by themselves. So, on to it . . .

Last Saturday I ran a squad call first thing in the am. I can't/won't say a whole lot about it, other than it was an interesting problem with some things that I had never seen before. Fun isn't exactly the right word, but it was good to step outside my comfort zone and experience some new things. I get awfully tired of, "I stubbed my toe - take me to the ER!" The joys of volunteerism.

Sunday we had our EMT competition. We're such sick individuals, that even if someone ISN'T hurt, we'll get together and see who can "fix" a pretend patient the best. Our team took second, and 1st for the year. Yay, us! Now, we just have state competition in September. And, it's at the beach. It's rough, I tell you.

This might turn into it's own post, but this week Msh and I were talking about relationships, and the development/maintenance of them. I discovered a quote, which I loved. It's, "The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.” Elisabeth Foley So true for us, and says it beautifully. She's the best thing I got out of my college education.

Speaking of Msh, Happy B-Day this week to the beautiful Savannah Marley - one year old, and walked the day before!

Yesterday was one of those where I was in a great mood, and everything went right. I commented that I hoped that something major bad wasn't coming, and Annette said that it was the Karma I was owed from all the car drama. Either way, days like that are very few, and I enjoyed every second.

Today, Laurel is bringing me sushi for lunch. It's already a good day, just because of that!!

Come play with us . . .
