Happy Birthday Bethin....
I am so glad that I usually don't work my birthday but it is usually the holiday and don't have to work (Jan 15). All I have left to do is put my gifts in bags and I have one more present to buy (for my grandniece), but it is in a store that shouldn't be tooo busy today. All the rest are wrapped or gift cards so it is really easy to do Christmas. Don't quite know what I am going to have for dinner tonight, meals are figured out for the next couple of days though.
I am going over to my brothers house in the evening tomorrow, we are just having finger foods and everyone is getting together. Going to have a little bit of wine and then we are going to drive around and check out all the lights.
Going to come home fairly early and put some soup on in the crock pot. I am taking cheddar vegetable chowder and shrimp dip to work. We have this tradition at work when you work the holidays, we bring food and eat at work and sometimes all day especially when you have chips & dips to bring. We will have shrimp dip and spinich dip to nibble on all day along with the chowder, bread and fruit that we are going to bring. We also leave everything there for the other shifts to finish off. Just makes it nice when you have to work the holiday.
I will get off work at 3:30pm and come home and get Max and go to my brothers house where we will open gifts and then eat dinner. I love Christmas and this year will be a good one for me. First one that I have really been back with my family in about 6 years and we have the baby and the new me..... I have been sooo excited about this Christmas, feel like a little kid again.
I went up with my DB & SIL to pick up my nephew from the airplane Thursday night, he didn't recognize me from the WLS and he told me that I looked sooooo much better.
I have a very busy January heading out so I hope that everyone has a great Christmas and I hope to get back on here to wish you all a great New Years. Love you all and bethin....remember have a great birthday from all the allnurses gang.... Sonya:lol2: :spin: :trout:
