Oh Deer….

What do you do when your little brother is sick and 2,000 miles away? I certainly can’t make him soup or bring him my latest batch of elderberry syrup. He has been down for a week and is all alone, if I had endless resources I would have jumped on a plane. I do not so I needed a plan B. My first thought was Amazon. Unfortunately when you order food on Amazon it goes into the Prime Pantry. I’m sure there are some good things about this program but it wasn’t working for me. They weren’t going to deliver it until next Wednesday the 31st! My brother is sick NOW. This dilemma added some extra tossing and turning to my sleep pattern last night.  This morning I went on a search…there had to be a way.

Have you ever heard of  Instacart? Me neither. Lucky for me it was exactly what I needed.

I was able to pick up a few things…chicken broth included from Costco in Arizona and it was delivered to my brother in a few hours. The time difference is the only reason it took a little longer.  I would recommend them in a heartbeat! I am so grateful that services like this exist. It won’t stop me from worrying but it takes the edge off.

Tuesday I went into work ten minutes later than usual. Our OD was down with the flu so we didn’t have a doctor that day. I was still there before 8 but it wasn’t so crucial to be there by 7:45. The minute I walked in the door crude girl informed me “you missed it! There were two deer standing on the snow pile right where you park you car. They looked like twins, little 6 point bucks.” If I was there at my normal time I would have had a rough picture at least….I feel like I missed out. I still feel like I missed out days later.

Later that night crude girl had a dream that I got married….crazy…I know. It was a decently detailed dream, right down to the simple short white dress.

He was tall, dark, and handsome and had to leave right after the wedding to go out of town for business. Isn’t that romantic? The whole thing is strange, very strange. I really can’t say much, it wasn’t my dream.  Deer…weddings…oh my…

I had a patient call me today because of a paper flower I made that I keep at work. I am meeting her next week to go over the details. It’s a sad story…it always is when a baby dies. She wants me to make a keepsake which is an honor but lots of pressure. I will let you know how that goes….

I promised my brother some distance Reiki so I better go do that……Zia
