Actual Wisdom Spoken

We’ve all been here…my back up was deathly ill last week and missed the entire week of work. So you can imagine what 5 days of accounts receivable and physician posting, along with phone calls and internal computer issues might look like.

I am taking a brief intermission from the ‘piles’ to share a funny story with you.

My husband calls to see if I’ve got my ‘head above water’ and I tell him about the back up and ask if perhaps he’d like to go live on some island like the really bad movie of the 80’s??? “The Blue Lagoon”.

This was his response….

“Yeah…I’d like to live at the Blue Lagoon…as long as they had wireless internet.”

So I added…

“And an ice maker!”

He responded…

“If they have wireless internet…they’ll have an ice-maker.”

And so continues the daily grind in Oklahoma on this journey (8 weeks left) towards graduation…filled with fun and frolic daily!

Pressing on...

I loved yesterday's post, which I just got to this morning. I feel for you today, catching up in the brain fog of getting back from vacation. I'm so glad God connected you with this woman. Isn't HE good??

ooo - that island, I can picture it. I can feel the warm breeze blowing in off the sea. I can taste the salty air. I can feel the soft sand under my feet and the sun on my skin.
Boy - I could do with a break away to that island - with no wireless, but an icemaker for sure!
I can dream can't I....

Can I live on the other side??? With an ice maker and wireless internet also? That way if your ice maker goes out, I can share mine...Oh and I would like a gormet kitchen so I can cook for you and have you come over for a visit. Yeah...that would be nice. Sorry you're swamped. Hope your co-worker is feeling better.

Could it also have all you can eat s'mores and diet coke?

Welcome back! There's nothing like coming back from a relaxing vaction to a desk like that. Good luck getting through the day.
