On Call Thursday

So tonight is the first time I will be covering the hotline with the pager, I'm kinda nervous and I'm also really tired so if I get a call or have to go to the hospital in the night it's gonna suck. Oh well I can handle it. Last night's dinner was a struggle. I really wasn't feeling too intellectual and had to pretend to listen intently to all of the scholarly conversations and nod my head and practice my active listening skills. I was glad when the dinner was over. I had been talking to Greg on and off al day and he asked me to go over to his house again to chill. I was planning on staying home and getting some shut eye but my roomie had a friend over who also has a 4yo child who is a hellian, literally.

I took a quick shower and headed out the door. "G" had picked up the dogs earlier since he wanted them for the night so I didn't have to worry about them. Greg and I hung out some and both basically collapsed from exhaustion. We take similiar anti anxiety medications so the side effects are the same and one of those is feeling tired. He gently woke me up this morning and said that he had gone outside and started my car. What a sweet heart. His son started to wake up so I headed out to go home and get ready for work. I havea busy day today going to local school and establishing drop in hrs and also scheduling presentations. I can say with certainty that I REALLY want to go to bed early tonight. Not that 11P was late last night, but I'm just dragging ass lately.

This weekend my big plan is to find a dress for the wedding in Virginia next week. I also need to do some research on the weather because I have no idea what the weather is there this time of year. I want something cute and cheap hahaha, good luck I know. I also want to either lunge or ride my horse. My back has been a little sore lately so lunging might be the way to go. He needs some work on lunging in side reins anyways so it'll be good for him. Weather is supposed to suck for the rest of the week. I think that's another reason that I'm tired because of all the changes in the weather patern. I feel like I could just fall asleep right now and not wake up till tomorrow *sigh*

But I hope to get out at a decent time this afternoon since I came in early so I can take the afternoon to chill. I was going to take the dogs to the barn to run around, but with the weather I would rather not be driving wet dogs around in the car. Hmmm, wonder what Greg is doing tonight hehehe. He really is the sweetest guy, I have never met anyone like him before, it really is amazing. Oh well, I'll keep ou all updated. Sorry my blog hasn't been very horsey lately due to the fact that I can't or do as much as I would like.

I have been reading everyone's blogs and checking on horsey progress. I enjoy reading and checking in with everyone. Talk tomorrow.

Welcome! THanks for the comment. Yes I am lucky to have found such a great guy. I had a real "winner" my first marriage. Sounds like you need a vacation! Virginia, not sure probably cold! Hmmmm Maybe Greg is your really "great" guy... Stop by anytime, I will do the same.

Well even though you don't have much horsey stuff to talk about I still enjoy reading about your dogs and Greg and your new job.

So you're like "on-call" huh? Yeah that can suck - I used to volunteer for the Stevens County Search and Rescue Group. We were on call 24 hours a day every day. Often we'd be called out in the middle of the night because that's when people would realize that someone is not coming when they were supposed to and panic.

Guess how many times we got called out only to meet at the ambulance shack and be sent home because Mr. Whiskey was found drunk and crashing somewhere where he wasn't supposed to be? ALOT.

But your job sound so interesting. Are you allowed to talk about any of the calls you get - if you don't mention names?

working on call must be tough. I've never had to do that.

Glad to hear that things with Greg are going so well. I'm glad you have found a nice guy!

Oh - by the way - I gave you a silly little award over at my blog. Check it out when you get a chance...

I would not like being on call. I get antsy when i know that i am expecting a call. You need some horse time. But dont do anything to aggravate your back problem....
