Very Long Day

Between 3 and 4 a.m. my husband discovered what he believed to be an emergency. We got up, got dressed, and went to the Wichita VA Emergency Room. It was more of an unfortunate problem than an emergency. Meanwhile, I was texting the para coordinator about not being able to be on the morning route, but that I would get to school ASAP. When she did not respond I tried to call her and my phone decided to malfunction. I called customer service eventually. Got it fixed. I made it to work by 8. I had thrown a lot of things together in a bag so I had breakfast and lunch. I am tired now. Hubby made supper. We have eaten. I have done my exercises. It is going to be an early night for sure. 3 a.m. was too early to get up.

@Hannihar Lately I do not rest well. If I do the cat wants to make me get up, though.

3am is far too early to have to get up. It sounds a muddled, frustrating day.

The phone fix was not fixed after all. I had to do more after I posted this. Now it is Tuesday and I am still tired.

@GardenGerty Our phone is out of action too and it seems impossible to find anyone to complain to.

@JudyEv Even when we find someone, each one says something different.

That certainly is not the best way to start a day. I am glad everything is now alright and I wish you a good and relaxing night,

It's not easy to function on that amount of sleep.

I tend to want to nod off in the bus on my way home. Not really good.

At least neither of you were seriously hurt. You can really be thankful about that.

Yes. His emergencies are more or less equipment malfunctions that cause problems.

The (male) nurse he saw had a suggestion of a remedy. I am also now armed with enough knowledge to know what to ask hubs before we go out the door.
