I worked a 12 hour shift Monday night at the hospital. We were super busy with crisis after crisis. I didn't get a break, and I was there late to boot (and all the pirates repeat, "late to boot").
I got home and took a shower and climbed into bed shortly before 9am. I called Noah and here is how the conversation went:
N: How was work?
J: OK, busy. My patient was really sick. The MD and I were on a first name basis by the end of the night. I am really tired, I have been up for 26 hours now.
N: Well, my mom can keep the boys for awhile, Genna will be home if she is not.
J: I have to get the kids to Gym and Swim by 1. Can you call me at noon to wake me up? I don't trust the alarm. I am too tired, I need a call and you to actually talk to me and make sure I am really awake.
N: long pause.
N: I am not sure that will be possible
J: Don't tell me you are going out for lunch...not when I am telling you that I am only going to be able to sleep for 3 hours...
N: long pause
J: You are? Aren't you?
N: Yes. But it is a farewell lunch...I will figure out a way to call you...
1220- I bolt upright in bed. Alarm says 1220. Glance at the phone. No missed calls from Noah's number. Nice. Eat several cookies and dash off to pick up the kids. Leave a slightly sarcastic voicemail on Noah's line.
1309- Get a slightly apologetic message on my cell.
note to self: don't depend on your husband to wake you up when he will be at a sports bar on a weekday with his peeps.
In other Noah news:
*Noah is spending all of his days in meetings at work. He doesn't know why he is suddenly being invited to all of these meetings. I asked him if it because he is funny during meetings. He said, "possibly".
*Noah likes the phrase 500 mile Club: Have you gone your 2.796 miles today?
1. what are your ideas for a 500 mile club motto/phrase?
2. If you could choose, would you rather captain a pirate ship or a warship?
