6:20 pm Monday

Impassable traffic
Because highway south of us is flooded? 
(I never learn why)
While already one hour late to hospital to my overnight call
To make up missed call from last week
(Partners are lovely about my delay when I text, and write all my admission notes for me)*
While trying to participate in family meeting via phone about my very ill father's illness(es)** on my cell phone
(Which is the reason I missed call last week)
While my children are febrile at home for the second week in a row
After very long and rough day in the office

Things are kind of hard right now, that's all. 

*I pulled over, because safety first! Also because traffic was that bad. 
**New hands-free bluetooth headset bought for this very conversation.
