Saturday, at 0500, I received a call from Ressha at EIRMC Labor and Delivery.  I wanted to jump up, throw my clothes on and rush in to work.  Only thing is, I am over 1,000 miles away.  Made me homesick for my friends and work that I love.  Not that homesick, though.  There is a difference in being on call here, answering questions and offering advice and being on call for Labor and Delivery.  I am on call for the Lord here. There is an urgency there that we do not have here.  Besides, it would take me forever to get to work.  You see, traffic here is awful.  Where do all these people have to go??  I guess Ressha had a wrong number listed for a new nurse--it was my husband's phone number.  I do appreciate talking to my friends!

Traffic in the middle of the day

Traffic in the evening, that is the "fast lane" to the left.
Last week Lonnie and I, on our "P" day, went to the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach.  Wow!!Profile PictureIt was awesome.  Made me want to get my sewing machine out and start sewing.  We took a picture on my phone of me at the festival, but I can not figure out where the SD card is on my phone.  I have been told that once we have been on the mission for 4-6 months, we will settle into a routine and I should  able to do some sewing.  We met a Dr and his wife at the Quilt Festival that had been on a similar mission(he was an Area Medical Advisor).  He said eventually things will settle down.  We will see.  Visiting the Elder's and Sister's apartments is a full time job. 
Elder McOmber keeps very busy as well.  He helps them move, fixes anything that needs fixing, takes beds down, watches out for the safety of the Elders, teaches how to clean their apartment, he is awesome.  Of course, he does not like sitting still so he will find things to keep him busy!
We have tomatoes growing on our plants in pots!!!
