A First

This is the first year in 25 years that I have been off for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. And New Years.  I was pretty much the proverbial Grinch at holiday time.  The hospital was usually jammed, the surgery schedule packed, and we were typically short-staffed with employees out sick or on PTO.   I was usually not very merry.  Not this year!!  I get all the fun and none of the headaches!! And people ask me if I miss working!! HA!!

Enjoy. I am so admiring of the hard work people in the health professions do, and I'm glad you are happily retired and getting your turn at enjoying the holidays.

It is wonderful! I am enjoying decorating the house (no tree b/c I gave my daughter all the ornaments) and having Pandora play Christmas music. Who knows--I may even bake Christmas cookies!!
