Merry Christmas, everyone!

Just popping in to wish everyone a Happy Holiday! I am relaxing with Stud Muffin and the dogs, anticipating some snow today.

I know I have been kinda quiet absent around here. Just trying to decompress from the semester. Of course, they couldn't let us too relaxed, so they have already thrown a 9 chapter assignment at us to be turned in before the semester even starts.

But there is some good news! I interviewed for and was offered an internship in the Neurology department of the local teaching hospital. I am equally excited and terrified, considering the patients on this unit have had strokes, spinal injuries, brain tumor and the like. It will go a long way toward connecting up all the dots between classroom lectures and real-life nursing.

So I am taking advantage of what may be the last real "down time" I have for the next year to kick back, sit before the fire, read a few novels and just enjoying "being."

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday with family and friends, eaten some treats, and are getting ready for the New Year. Once the revelry is over, you may start your aneurysms! I will be there with the bedpan and clean sheets to help you out!

Please pardon the interruption!

We interrupt our regularly schedule programming to TRY and survive the final exam for Maternal/Child nursing on Friday! I just need to memorize all of this

and have it all for immediate recall. Whaddya think? Possible? After that, I will be the hap-, hap- happiest a**hole this side of the nuthouse! Holy sh*t! Pass the Tylenol! (Name that movie!)

We will return to our regular programming as soon as we finish with women's nether regions and the aliens that come out of them. And excavate the kitchen, fold the mountain of laundry pitched on a spare bed, and have a bonfire with all the papers and notes.

Then maybe we will have something else to report. Like an undercover expose on my life in a padded room or 1001 ways to decorate dust bunnies for Christmas. Truly juicy stuff!

Thank you for your patience. It is more than I have at the moment!
