Goodness!

It's been forever and a day since I've written. So sorry, guys, but this "work" thing has consumed my life.


So, yesterday, I broke my thumb. Well, let's be honest here, I didn't break it, my partner did. We're taking a man from the doctor's office back to his house. He's a pretty big guy--"husky," as he says. Partner pushes the stretcher up to the lip of the ambulance, but it doesn't latch.
"Whoa, whoa, wait a second it hasn't--OWWWW!"
Yeah, partner didn't hear me and lifted the stretcher while pushing it over my poor little thumb.
Then ensues the obligatory "oh god, oh god," from my partner and the, "geez man, way to ruin your girl here," from our patient.
"Nope, it's all good," I say as partner cracks open an ice pack and grabs a band-aid for me, "let's just go and we can deal with this later."
So we buy a finger splint at rite aide, and I've been looking ridiculous ever since :)

Like the shirt, by the way?

I've been moving between my old place and my new one, so that's been eating up all my time, too. Luckily, though, I won't have to commute so far to and from my jobs, nor will I have to deal with the heinous tunnel traffic.

Work is good. I love my hospital job a whole lot; it's always new and exciting, and it definitely keeps me on my toes. I don't like the sad parts of the job, but who does?

Well, in any event, I have two stories in mind. Hopefully I'll be able to write one soon!

And, not giving anything away, but you know how I talked about wanting to see Sam, not just read/write about her? That might be happening in the near future. I'll keep you posted...

Take care out there!
Sam
