Happy Birthday to me.
It's been a calm couple of days, had several days off. No OT for me this week. Fisrt time in a month I haven't spent the week in a uniform. Celebrated my birthday on Thursday in style at a rooftop bar over looking The Market. Friends and cosmopolitons. Very Sex and the City you might say. I got everything I wanted, Nip/Tuck and CSI:NY on DVD, some new PJs and an old Kodak camera to add to my growing collection of antique cameras. Spent yesterday and today with my family. I should spend more time with them. My daddy is still getting over not having his girls around since both my sister and I aren't living at home anymore. I think it's harder on him than he likes to admit. Mama says he is having a bit of seperation anxity. He worries about us. Me because of my work. My sister because she's still young and living in the big bad city. I do get to see my mom more since she works in one of the busy local ERs. She just left the pediatric ER to work at County ER so intead of dealing with children, she treats more psych, drunks and homeless. She says some of those psychs are like the toodlers anyways. She likes it, except for the borderlines, she doesn't like them, which I can understand, they are an odd group people to deal with. I love encoding the hospital when she's working because she always ends the transmission with "See you when you get here, sweetie. Drive safely!" It was embarassing in the beginning because all the other medics could hear it and would give me a hard time, but now most of them relize who she is and they all refer to as "Mom". And she always tries to stand up for the medics when the ER staff gets bitchy with us.
