A Different Kind of Thursday

Normally I work Monday thru Thursday, 7am to 3:30pm.  Well, here it is, Thursday at 10:20am in the morning and I'm sitting at my computer in my night gown. 

The health system that I work for has different health related evening seminars from time to time and one of us in the office where I work, have to attend these seminars to "check" people in, as they have pre-registered via the phone to attend.  Well, tonight is my turn.  It's a "Sleep Better" seminar  (Robin it starts at 7pm) and so I'm working 1:30pm to 9pm today.  And I have to travel from the office to Gig Harbor (across that clogged up Narrows Bridge) between the hours of 5 & 6pm.  And get some dinner, somehow, or wait until I get home which will be close to 10pm.  Also, my night vision is absolutley horrible and if it's raining (which it has been) it's even worse.  So I may end up sleeping in my car tonight, over in the parking lot at the seminar location in Gig Harbor.  I don't mind working at the seminars that are held at the hospital, it's easy to get home after dark.  But to have to travel on the freeway and across that bridge at night, perhaps in the rain, will push me to the edge. 

Thank you for your responses to the prayer request for our friend Ruth's son David and my co-worker Susan.  J-Landers can always be counted on to answer the call.    I'm off to the shower...have a good Thursday.  Until next time.......Linda

I wish you didn't have to attend the seminar Linda, I shall worry about you till you get home. I hope you'll be OK and it doesn't rain and the traffic isn't too bad. I just wanted to say thank you so much for the map you sent me, it arrived today. It's so kind of you to think of me, I shall know my way around Washington blindfold soon! Jeannette xx

You had sent me a picture of Narrows Bridge and I wouldn't wanna have to drive that either at night in the rain or otherwise. I hope you don't have to sleep in your car and you make it home safely.
Take care, Chrissie
