This lovely orchid plant was my grandmothers, who kept the finicky plant alive for several years. It is now under my care...I give it a week.
This, more importantly, as the title implies, is my 1000th post here on the old blog. Wow! This is also the 248th photo of the day, counting from May of 2008 plus a bonus month of October 2009.
I don't have much to say on this occasion, it seems crazy that I've made so many posts. Granted, a certain percentage of them are complete nonesense, but they still count.
It's funny to read those really old posts. Some of them make me wonder just who was writing. It's amazing to have a record of personal and professional changes one can go through in nine years. My life in 1000 posts. I do realize there are fewer and fewer posts about EMS. Certainly there were a lot back in 2006-7. But that was when it was new. When I wanted to share every tiny thing I went on. And I'm not saying I'm jaded now, just that my tastes and standards have changed. I still love the job, but you don't want to hear about that abdominal pain that was going to the ER for the 3rd time in 18 hours, and I don't want to write about it either.
It is worth considering though, adding more posts to just skim over what I've done at work. I've noticed a lot of forgotten calls in the old posts, God knows how many I've forgotten in recent years, and have no record of.
1000 posts. Can't wait to say I have 2000, though that may take 18 more years at this rate.
