I've taken a hiatus for a few weeks because my last, completely finished post disappeared and it was a total waste of time! That was about 2 weeks ago and I'm still mad about it. Gotta let it go.
Anyway! I'm writing from the assignment desk today. It's a very slow, rainy day in Hampton Roads and I'm looking forward to checking out some live music tonight at Cure. My sister is on her way to Guatemala (!!) tonight, so I'm sending good thoughts her way. I'm actually hoping that she will be the subject of my next blog post (hopefully coming this weekend!). She just got back from an incredible trip to Jamaica, seeing patients in a very rural area and exploring the countryside in her downtime. The Guatemala trip is another medical mission type adventure so I'm already excited to hear tales of mysterious lesions, spectacular snorkeling sessions and interesting encounters with the locals. Go Meg!
Alright, time to go. I need to start drafting my letter of disappointment to the Black Paw luggage company...I don't think it's too much to ask for my very pricey piece of carry-on-size luggage (got it on sale) to be checked plane-side with 4 wheels, only to find it on the baggage claim belt with 3. Yes, I know TSA guys are not the most gentle but come on! The whole trip home I had to be "that guy" whose bag fell on every unsuspecting toddler every time I let go of it for a hot second.
Oooh, one more story of the Gods testing my patience...Look closely at the picture of my beautiful and steadfast companion..the red Camry. Look very closely. Do you see the lovely illustration of male anatomy that some gem of a person created just for me? Awesome. I had my car detailed--yes, detailed!-- last week and proudly drove it around town all weekend, running errands that included a trip to the mall. I parked it in the garage and ran inside on my lunch break...15 minutes later I found my new friend on the window. Really?? Gotta smile at this one. I hope you do too.
