I am sure both of my blog subscribers have been waiting with bated* breath for my next post. Sorry to keep you waiting, but I have been just a bit busy.
* Pet peeve of mine — improper usage of the word “bait” instead of “bate” in the familiar phrase. The only creatures with BAITed breath are fish that have been reeled in. My advice is, don’t be one!!!
You see, a few days ago I sat down and counted consecutive days I worked at one or the other (or both) of my two jobs. The number was so large that after I tweeted it, I found I had miscounted! Turns out to have been 47. Joyfully, though, I do have this weekend off. So, what are my plans for the weekend? You guessed it. As little as possible. I need time to recharge the batteries.
Therefore, no political polemics this morning. Yes, I could go on about the continuing and systematic destruction of our constitutional republic by a merry band of misguided Marxists pretending to be descended from Robin Hood. But I will defer that to another time. Time to get out and enjoy the weather. Here in northern Ohio, the April showers just concluded yesterday — May 22. I’m looking forward to what is left of spring. It was wonderful yesterday to get in a bike ride, a reservoir walk, AND tennis ball fetch with Zora.
Tomorrow the merry-go-round starts again, though thankfully just five days at a time; weekend clinicals are finis until September. Our giga-implementation of new EHR software continues on the front burner, along with the long-awaited upgrade to our existing Web-based analytics.
Meantime, I am catching my breath and enjoying life. It is indeed too short to do otherwise. Both my family and my wife’s have suffered untimely deaths recently, and as I pray and ponder, I recall the words of Jesus in John 13:7, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
