Catch-up

Christmas is only 5 days away...I have so many things to catch up on...

My cards are not even started (well they are made, just not signed, addressed or ready to go).
I still have a couple of gifts to buy.
I have one gift wrapped...thank goodness I don't have lots of gifts to give this year.
Our fridge is about empty ~ so I need to go to the store.
The family wants to do our annual cookie baking.

At least I have the next 3 days off of work. I have some charting to do for one of my perinatal hospice patients that delivered a few nights ago, but I am not going in to the hospital even if they call begging for help. I just have too much to catch up on!

Work has been pretty crazy busy for December. We all keep thinking it is the economy and that people can't afford to go out so they just all stay at home - and 9 months later they get the gift that comes with staying home :)
It also has been pouring rain the past few days (well at least in southern California standards) Rain, or the change in the barometric pressure, can make a woman's bag of water break. So we have lots of mom's coming in to deliver. We have been working hard - that is for sure. At least I had good patients today...one that has come in pretty frequently even told me that I was her "favorite nurse". The best part about working around the holidays is all of the extra goodies that people bring in. Yummy! Especially these cinnamon bagel chips that one of the doctors always gives us - they are to die for and you can't eat just one. So maybe it is good that we are busy ~ helps to run off the extra calories.

Tomorrow though it is time for me to get things done around home - wish me luck as I try to accomplish weeks worth of stuff in a couple of days!
