New Things I Did This Week

I’m back safe and sound in Charlotte. Thanks to you all for letting me indulge my passion of the islands with you.

Haley was so happy to see me that she just sat and peed on the back deck. She is passed out at my feet now.

I did/saw three things this week that I have never experienced. First, I passed two cars while driving on the island. What makes this a big deal is that everything is opposite down there since you drive on the left side of the road.

Second, I drove from one end of the island to the other end of the island twice today. It took two trips to the airport in the tiny Wrangler Jeep in order to get all the luggage back. No more rental Jeeps.

Third, I saw four people puke this week including me. The first was a young man in the Charlotte airport just as we were leaving. Then I got a stomach ache on Monday and forced myself to puke. Then I saw a guy in town puke on my first trip to the airport. Lastly a kid puked on the plane a few rows up as we were boarding the plane.

This has to be some puking record, at least for a civilian. I’m sure medical people reading this are not impressed.

Oh! Something else, I may have made my longest distance call ever when I called Zig and Ali. That call had to be 5 or 6 thousand miles. I called Scotland this summer but I think the distance was less. I was way down in the Caribbean and they are way up in the frozen north.

We probably could have helped you get your stuff to the airport, silly!

I didn't want to bother you further. It was so good to see you both. Thank you for everything!

Count yourself lucky for only seeing four people puke. I think my record is 8 on one ward. They all had it from the "other" end too. Sometimes you just gotta love being a nurse...
