HAPPY 2009 EVERYONE

I've been enjoying reading
everyone's stories about what they did to ring in the New Year! Families, traditions, new babies...all of those fun things. So, can you tell where this is going? Think hard...this is MY life we're talking about here. I'll start with what time the Paramedics and ambulance arrived at our house. 11:30 P.M. on New Years Eve. Why were they there? Because DAM fell again. Remember the story about how she broke her hip and wouldn't get it fixed? Here we go again. She tried to refuse to go to the hospital and the Captain was great. He said, "Myrna, you can refuse to go with me, but if you do I can guarantee you that I'll be back here in a week to take you to the hospital and they'll cut your leg off". Load her up boys, and we were off! I went in the ambulance (that was fun). The driver had the personality of a peanut. Come on, it's New Years Eve of course I had a few glasses of wine. Duh! He said, I didn't think "people" in this neighborhood drank. Oh so naive young man. And, since friends don't let friends drive if they have had a few, Jennifer was kind enough to come over and take the Peddler to the hospital.

We had the honor of being the first people in the ER for 2009. Officially clocked in at 12:01 A.M. Woo hoo! After 4 hours in the ER they decided to admit her and we were free to go home. No problem, just call a cab. Except the wait time for a cab on New Years Eve is approximately 2 hours. And since friends don't call friends at 4:00 A.M. for a ride home we waited. Then an angel appeared out of no where and asked us what we were waiting for. She said "no problem, wait here". There she came in her car and gave us a ride home. A happy ending to what I am sure is going to an on going comedy! Happy 2009 everyone!

I'll be back later with some good ER stories. What a place to be on New Years Eve!

Can't wait to hear more stories, I am a little sad I no longer have "those" kind of stories myself anymore but at least I can live through yours. Hopefully DAM will be kinder to you this year, I am praying for you!
