Nightwatch...

I was in my bed and/or my casa from last Tuesday evening, January 3rd, until yesterday morning, January 11th. That is how long I waited for my Pink Eyes to clear up and for my sinus infection to go far, far away.

Sinus infection? I felt mucho better with that issue by last Friday. One more day of the meds.

Pink Eyes? They were getting clear by Sunday. Still itchy. Still putting my antibiotic drops in them 4-5 times a day. Yesterday morning, as My Sweet Hubby (MSH) and I got ready to go to Ft. Worth for some needed groceries, etc., my eyes looked great! It was the first time in almost eight days that I put makeup on—including a little eye makeup. (I’d thrown out the mascara and eye shadow I’d used on the 3rd. TLC’s suggestion. And, might I say, a quite smart one.)

By the time we dealt with the gale force winds in and around Ft. Worth, my eyes went past pink straight to RED. I think Cedar Fever. Just makes sense to me. I plan to go to an eye doctor next week if I start getting a bunch o’ gunk, again. (Sorry.)

In the meantime, Our Three Angels (TLC, Little Leighton and Baby Elle) are coming this afternoon to stay with us two nights! Woo Hoo and Yippee!!! I haven’t seen Little Leighton since December 30th. This is the LLOOONNNNGGGGGest stretch of time we’ve ever gone without a visit. I’m not thrilled about that. Haven’t seen Baby Elle since Christmas Day. I can’t handle that.

I do want to share My New Favourite Reality Television Series! It’s called Nightwatch—on A&E. It’s out of New Orleans and follows the police, fire department and emergency medical services on their runs from 10:00 p.m. until 4:00 a.m. (They say between these three groups they average 1,000 emergency calls every night! What? Yikes.) The concentration is mostly on the Emergency Medical Technicians and you see A LOT of things (blood, etc.) that are difficult to see. At least, for moi. I have to look away—for about a third of the show! It is my NEW OBSESSION. The six-ish EMTs they follow? They are AWESOME people. Of course, MSH really enjoys it, too. We watch it together. (Not many current shows like that for us...)

Thank You, Dear Lord God Almighty, for creating people who want to be doctors, nurses, policemen and women, firemen and women, and EMS technicians. THANK YOU. I don’t know how we would survive without them.

Here’s hoping y’all don’t need any one of those professionals today. Tonight. Tomorrow. This weekend.

Smooches and Hugs,

ELC
