A Little This And That
This has been one week since the last time I blogged, and that's because it's just been a busy, not so exciting, didn't do anything blog worthy week. Usually January is a bit slow in surgery because everyone is dealing with deductibles and having to shell out those first payments. However, we seem to busy. Especially the call part of the job. The anesthetic machine in the OB department's operating room wasn't working and had to be sent out for repair. The c-sections have to be done in our operating rooms which means we have to do them. It wouldn't be so bad but as many folks know babies just like to born whenever and usually that means middle of the night. Thursday was not a pretty weather day. Cold, snow, icy conditions on the road. Of course that was my call night. Got through it and even worked Friday with only 4hrs of sleep. I'm getting too old for this stuff! The bitter cold hit our area but I think it's been that way across the country and down south too. Jack's been keeping the wood burner going and the house has stayed warm. However, he threw his back out cutting and splitting wood. Ironic for a Chiropractor and totally not fun. He soldiered threw it and Jordan came over on Saturday and helped get the wood in and split for us. Thanks so much Jord!! I made him some chocolate chip cookies and he did his laundry here while he worked...so it was a small win-win for him I guess! So "that's" the skinny on "this" past week. A warm up is in the forecast for next week and hopefully all those having bad weather issues will also get cleared up. Since it was a good weekend to make soup I tried a new recipe.
This is a recipe I'll make again.
