Par for the Course and a Treasue Hunt

Tags: , , , ,
Yesterday, as I was packing to come back to Virginia, my mom started having pains at work. It got so bad her coworkers called an ambulance and seemed to be afraid she was having a heart attack. All the hospitals in Houston are horribly backed up in general because the big one out on Galveston Island hasn't reopened after Hurricane Ike. They ran some tests on Mom, decided she'd live, and sat her in the waiting room. Ten hours later they finally got around to actually seeing her and decided they needed to run about eight hours worth of tests. Since she'd been in the waiting room for ten hours not having these tests run, they had to keep her over night so my last night in Texas and I only got to see my mom for a bit while in the hospital emergency room. Not exactly how I wanted to leave, but about par for the course with my family for the last year plus.

Today I flew back to Williamsburg sans incident and Mom was released from the hospital at some point when I was in the air between Houston and Atlanta or maybe while I was waiting in Atlanta for my flight to Newport News. They decided it was probably gastric rather than her heart and will be doing a follow up on a hernia that might have been causing the pain but she should be fine. So she's at home and I'm at my apartment and life is good, I guess.

In more entertaining news, my parents gave me the Indiana Jones Monopoly game for Christmas. Most of my presents are in boxes on my parents' kitchen table waiting to be mailed to me, but I brought the game with me in my suitcase because I'm hoping to get some friends together for a game day. Since I was unpacking everything else, I decided to open the game and look at all the pieces. Instead of houses and hotels, with the Indy Monopoly you build with Idols and Arks from Raiders of the Lost Ark. I suck at opening those little plastic bags that pieces come in. They always refuse to open until they decide to suddenly give and the contents go flying everywhere in a wild explosion. Can you guess where I'm going with this? It took almost twenty minutes of crawling around my floor, but I finally found all thirty-two little plastic idols. Including the one that went down the air vent and had to be fished out of the duct. At least I found them all!

I'm glad that your mom's okay and that you found all of the idols! Those plastic bags are really hard to open. I also have issues with cereal bags, resulting in lots of cereal on the floor.

I've sent pasta flying.
