I woke up this morning because the light was on in the living room, so I was certain that my husband had already turned off the alarm, told me it was time to get up and gone to make coffee (which meant that I would be running late). I sat bolt right up in bed and looked at the clock. 4am. I staggered into the living room where my husband snored and Harry Potter danced on in the TriWizard Ball. I asked him what on earth he was doing in there? He had fallen asleep in the Lazy Boy with all the lights on (I can't ever do that) and the movie playing in a continuous loop. And here I was for better or worse, up at 4am. ICK. But I guess it gave me extra time with my husband, so for that I'm thankful.
I didn't have to train two girls after all. My supervisor had forgotten to tell me that she had told one trainee to take the day off. So I sat worrying about that trainee, but not wanting to call and wake her up in case she had already called in to my supervisor. But God evidently caused that trainee to call me and let me know that the supervisor had told her not to come in, so I wouldn't have to worry. And LOL--the other girl I trained told me that she had been interviewed for a county dispatch position this morning. What a crazy world I work in. : D But I sat back, and sat on my hands all day to try to let this girl do her thing. She's supposed to fly solo on Friday night, so I had to sit back and try to let her do things on her own. Soooooooooo hard for me! I was longing to jump in and take over, because I knew just what to do and when to do it, and she's not as quick yet. And I'm by nature a Type A personality/perfectionist--so we know my way is the BEST way (LOL). But we both made it, I think. Then, all this bad weather came in. EMA was delivering updates every 15 minutes or so. At 6:00pm, the tornado was coming, but I had to get OUT of there. I had been there for 12 hours and up for 14, and I was plain old-fashioned TIRED. So, I beat the tornado home. I just heard from my Momma who said the tornado was in my sister's area now, and my sister and niece were stuck in the dance studio--LOL. Well, I guess there could be worse places. As for me, I just wanted to be HOME. THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME!
In any case, now that I've written a novel, I'm braindead and tired. Hope you all have a safe night.
