The first reason to celebrate...it's almost Christmas! I love Christmas even though it seems like it goes by so fast. And I'm 99% done with my shopping thanks to the wild shopping spree I did yesterday. Now I need to wrap...ugh, wrapping. Luckily my niece has volunteered to wrap - so that will help.
Second reason to celebrate...my sister in law is doing quite well after her surgery. She sounded upbeat & like her usual self when I talked to her on Saturday. I'll see her on Christmas day as she is insisting she wants to continue to have the big Christmas celebration we have at her house. It started becoming the tradition 21 years ago...when my oldest nephew was born on Christmas Day. Man, time flies!
Third reason to celebrate...I don't go back to work until Dec 31st. Yay for me! I stopped by last night to drop off my secret Santa gift. I brought my youngest niece with me. It's always so pleasant bringing a non-hospital person into the hospital to see their reactions to all that goes on. According to her...the hospital smells.....I guess I have become immune to that.
Fourth reason to celebrate...no more team nursing at the other hospital. It's about time they came to their senses! Needless to say, it wasn't in time as my other hospital hired yet another one of their nurses. We don't need any more nurses at my regular hospital. Stop hiring! I got called off last week because we are too overstaffed.
Fifth reason to celebrate...no snow. I am watching on tv all the snowstorms around the country & am pleased that it is predicted to be 79 degrees & sunny here on Christmas Day.
I could go on & on.....there are just so many reasons to celebrate life. My back is so sore, my house is a mess & I have a million things to do....but I am happy & thankful for all that I do have.
I bought myself a couple of gifts this year & because I bought them, I get to use them early...lol. I bought myself a new digital camera and a new cell phone.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas!!! Stay safe & warm!
