The Happiness Project: Medic!

What makes me happy?  Camping with friends who are also paramedics. It is very handy when:

Child #2 decides to break rocks between his bare feet and cuts his ankle nearly to the bone.
and
Child #4 is bitten by a dog.

Poor Lt. Matt.  He may have to vacation with us for years to come.

Now fly over to Leigh's place, and tell us what makes YOU happy.

You and your blog makes me happy. Stop by when you have a moment, I have something there for you.
We have a forester/medic that comes with us once in awhile, it has come in handy when you're turly decides to climb and fall or step on things and cut her toe to the bone.
Keep up the great work, wise words and funny reads. Take care and have a blessed day today.

OK so if I ever decide to be brave and go camping I am going to make sure I take a paramedic and a wildlife expert with me :-)

Mama Zen said...

Sounds like one of my vacations!

Katherine said...

Thank goodness there was someone along who could handle those things. It guess it beats a trip spent in the emergency room.

leigh said...

Wow, it's like good news and bad news.

ladyfi said...

Oh dear - cutting feet is par for the course, but being bitten by a dog? Hope you relaxed in between...

Evansmom said...

I can just see your packing list for camping: tent, sleeping bags, coolers, Lt. Matt, food

I hope everyone is healing quickly!

Messy Mommy said...

Sometimes I wish I would've married a doctor. Oh well, at least I get free internet.

Teddy Started It said...

Wow! Now that's a great idea -- taking your own medic with you!

(running a little behind on my blog reading this week - can ya tell?!)

Awww, you did him a favor! What if his skills had gotten all rusty over the weekend because of lack of use?
