2017

I had a great NYE. It's been a crazy busy month with house buying, parents visiting, trying to unpack a house before parents visit, and all that jazz. So for New Years, my husband and I put on pajamas, cooked a glorious fancy steak meal, drank way too much champagne, and didn't leave the house.

New Year's Day started off equally great. We made breakfast, I drank a pot of coffee, it was a beautiful day. And then I went to work.

Where within fifteen minutes of my arrival at the hospital, my second patient of the day was immediately intubated and the shitshow of a shift went downhill from there.

Welcome to 2017.

Sigh.

Focus on the good time. Focus on coming home to your house. Make time for good times in 2017.

Noted! It's good to hear reminders of this :)

And I LOVE coming home to my new house - it's the bomb dot com. Looking forward to many years of that. Happy 2017 to you as well!

Every shift is a shitshow.
Sometimes just for a few minutes, sometimes all shift long.

Life is a house, and the ED is just one big bidet, and we are but humble Oompah Loompahs with brushes and mops.

You can quote me.
