My weekend

This has been one of those weekends when I will be glad that my stint of being on call is over.  The cases that kept me occupied were bona fide emergencies and I don’t regret that I was called out to help.  but it disrupts the days – and nights.  Saturday, after getting a fitful sleep waiting to be called in the middle of the night, I was tired all day.  I probably would have been no more tired if the Dr in Emerg had called me at 2 am.  But he was kind and was able to handle the bleeding patient without my presence.

Last night I did go in around 11 PM.  A young girl playing had slipped and pushed her front teeth backwards so that she could no longer could close her teeth well and had lacerated her gums so badly that stitches were needed.  I got home around 12:30 this morning and then was wide awake.  I had to settle a bit, before crawling into bed half an hour later.  It wasn’t that I was upset, more on a sort of high that comes with doing a good thing and feeling pleased.

Then this morning, we were victims of the time change in Ontario.  Rachelle actually woke us up when she called at 7 our time thinking she had better catch us before we left for church.

Tonight my day wraps up reading Scot McKnight’s The Blue Parakeet with the superintelligent group of women that I call  friends.  We have a good time together and it is good to read, study, talk and pray together.

Its a bit like recovering a lost coin

It feels good to have the computer back. Nothing lost. The wizard who does these things failed to find a real problem, couldn’t make it give that dastardly message about hardware fatalities at all. So, my means of expression is back in order, tuned up, backed up and we are back in business.

Hmmm – wonder if I lost my spell checker? Nope it picked up the Hmmm just fine. But is underlining words that it shouldn’t. It does not like contractions for some reason.

So, I guess we see what happens from here on in.

It’s not so easy posting from my iPod since the keyboard goes away if I move from the title area.
