So, for some reason in the past two days I have become really friend sick. Yup..I just made that up, but "friend sick" is similar to home sick except I miss my friends. I have great friends that have been through so much with me and quite frankly I just don't see them enough. For 4 years I saw them everyday..multiple times a day. Now, Im lucky if I talk to them on the phone every few weeks. Life gets busy for all of us and there is no such thing as a "quick" phone call between any of us. I miss these girls to death:

Hopefully once I get done with school and settled in one place I'll be more available to talk and travel. I am still voting that we all plan a yearly vacation somewhere with just the girls. It is definitely needed!!

He's Alive!!!

I heard from the hubby tonight! Woo hoo!! He has been out in the field training since Wednesday. He got a quick minute to call me tonight and let me know he was okay! I was so excited to hear his voice. I just miss him TONS when I don't get to see or talk to him daily. He successfully landed his jump....not exactly the softest of landings according to him, but hey no broken bones. I cannot imagine jumping out of an airplane...I mean seriously there must be a better way! He will be home Saturday thankfully.

I had a bit of a rough day in the ED today. Let's just say it was poop day. Yup ladies and gentleman poo was coming from everyone. I had an elderly man who literally passed out while trying to push out a big one. Then the next guy couldn't poo at all...so much so that yours truely had to DIG it out. I'm serious. Then we had a couple little kids that just couldn't stop poopin'. Oh shit..literally. I was so excited to come home and shower today!

Sick World

I am completely exhausted!!! I have recently seen the other side of my job. I am used to being the provider, the one with the answers and the drugs. Well, unfortunately yesterday I was the sicky with two IVs in my arm stuck in a hospital bed. I prefer the other side of this agreement thank you! For the past 7 days, I have been stuck in the bathroom with some kind of stomach "bug" It went on long enough that by yesterday morning I was passing out from dehydration. No bueno my friends. It was not a pleasant time at all. My sweet hubby rushed home from work in his cute lil uniform (I just love him all dressed up in his work gear...but that's a whole other blog). He threw me in the car and off we went. 7.5 hours later we were home with drugs in hand!

Today I am a new woman. I am still in NC because I just didn't feel like I could be in a car for 6 hours today. I'll head back to VA tomorrow morning with Trek. I get to keep the pooch for the next few weeks because Chris is gone for the next 2 weeks doing training. I watched him pack up all his gear last night. UNBELIEVABLE. They carry so much stuff in a backpack the size of my largest rolling suitcase. It was packed FULL and he has to carry that thing on his back as he jumps out of an airplane. Talk about landing like a ton of bricks. My poor sweetie. I will let everyone know how the landing went when I talk to him. It will probably be several days before he is able to call. Until then, I will be thankful for not being in the bathroom 24/7!!
