<groan> How much Christmas crap have YOU eaten today?

  1. Well, in one sense, the cruddy economy has been good for us this year--we aren't getting nearly so many packages of goodies sent to us this year by vendors and staff. A box of cookies last week, a tin of truffles yesterday--but today: the coup de grace.

    One of our nurses sent us a HUGE, incredibly heavy basket filled with the most decadent goodies imaginable. Gigantic mutant apples triple-dipped in caramel, chocolate, and nuts. Pretzels ditto. Chocolate-dipped Oreos and Nutter Butters. More truffles. Almond bark. People from all over the 5th floor caught the scent and descended on our department, chowing down on the goodies like ravenous wolves.

    I have eaten several truffles, a tiny section of apple and a small section of pretzel and I'm pretty sure I need insulin right now. Ugh.

    I remember being absolutely flooded with this kind of stuff when I worked ICU--pt families would give us those huge tins of caramel corn, one nurse always brought in her MIL's famous fudge--

    So 'fess up. What have YOU eaten today?

    Go ahead and post. I'm just going to be taking a little nappy-nap on my desk. Zzzzzzzz....:zzzzz

    Work has been pretty tame. The OB's are getting us some good homeade goodies, but the Peds have been bringing us real crap.

    Today I started making all of my goodies. So I've had a little bit of chocolate covered pretzels, turtles, peanut clusters, almond bark, raspberry truffles, buckeyes, etc.

    I topped it off with a bean burrito before I dropped off into a complete coma.....

    Well, our hospital was inundated with the usual fudge, candy, popcorn, etc. Because I travel to all the units.....its a scarey thing! BUT...I returned to my low-carb ways and have managed to avoid disaster............but lordy it looks GOOD!!!!

    I don't remember most of today...I think I must have also collapsed in a diabetic coma. All I know is that when I woke up and went to the bathroom, a candy cane came out...don't know what that means...

    I've been very naughty...but it feels so good!!!
