Today I volunteered at the hospital and the other volunteer wasn't there. It was my first day to volunteer alone. I found the room where the cart was parked. I strolled it to the room where the ice machine is and filled the bags. I remembered to find out how many patients were there so I'd make enough bags but not too many.
Then I went to the Intensive Care part and checked to see if they needed any more bags put in the warmer. I got out my book that I had taken notes in (a hospital is kind of big and the numbers to punch in on the keypads are very forgetable). I couldn't find a door that said "Supply." That's what I'd written. So I asked somebody. I determined that it was necessary to actually read what is on the door rather than make it up.
Well, it said, "Authorized Personnel Only." That wasn't helpful and a lot of doors said that. Finally I just walked back to it several times to make sure I can find it next time.
Nothing I do is difficult, it's just that I'm not familiar with it. I tried to help a lady find an office and got us both lost. I probably need to retrace that path before I forget how to get there. I could have taken her out, put her in my car and driven her to a different door. I knew how to find that office from the other door. It was crossing from the hospital to the clinic that I didn't know.
The weather was wonderful. When I got home we went for a ride in the gator (equipped with a shovel and bucket). We saw the dogwoods blooming and found grape hyacinths that grow wild in a nearby field. We dug up some of them to bring back to our yard.
