Christmas Celebrations 2019

I am still nursing a cold but managed to do three 12-hr shifts this week. Today is my day off and I feel like blah. Receiving bad news today did not help and I choose not to dwell on it at the moment. I felt so bad that I needed to look at the pictures on my phone that, hey, this week is not all bad. We had family times. You see?

December Evening Celebrations

December is usually a busy month when groups get together and celebrate outside of usual activities. This year, I skipped the holiday luncheon at work because I do not work that day (the 11th) and it was my son's birthday. We, in the intensive unit group, had a separate celebration on the 12th. It started before my shift was over, but I joined after work. I had one hour left of a 6pm to 9 pm all-you-can-eat-limited-choice drinks and appetizers as Paul and I arrived at around 8. With the time we had, we had 2 servings of alcohol, and a few bites of appetizer. I am thankful for days like this. It is great to just relax with co-workers outside the walls of the busy hospital in the intensive care unit.

Saturday was my daughter's 20th birthday. She is my baby and looks young for her age, I think. She is still my sweet, fragile, sensitive little girl. We went to an arcade place but that night was an especially busy night. We did not even get a table to sit for appetizers and drink.…

Happy December

I am thankful for this month It's been good so far I am grateful for my family Food, health, and my little star
My little star is my grandson Who was the highlight of this party He was so well-behaved And was such a cutie He stayed behaved throughout the day And not at all fuzzy.
He was our little Santa And he won the best-dressed too Among other children Of Santa's little crew
My whole family also won The best-dressed for the day We're the "We love Santa" group We just don't have our sleigh
Speaking of the sleigh I am glad my car is back After a long wait for a repair It's finally back on track
I'm also thankful for the weather No more snowstorm for now The road is now better The drive feels much safer.
