(my version of the 12 days of Christmas- It's still a labor of love at work! Well we woke up this morning and we had a boiler pipe under the house that had brust and was spewing water all under the house. Yep- more good cheer this holiday season. So I did the standard call in to work to wait for the repairman and try to keep water pipes from freezing until the heat could be repaired. Here's the really good part- I am a house supervisor at a local hospital and the night supervisor I called in to tell I wouldn't be there- didn't pass on the word, so yours truly got repeated calls (voice mails- I was busy) and the DON (director of nurses) thought I had been a NO Call No Show- what a great add on to a very yucky day. So here's the question to everyone- How's your holiday season going? Mine was going great until today and now I feel like I'm having to fight to get back to the Christmas Cheer!!!!! Thanks and sorry for rambling!

How awful! I hope you got everything straightened out at work and you're not in trouble for that. I also hope you got the pipes fixed, but man, what a cruddy time to have to spend money on that, arg! You need to get away from it and do something Christmasy. Go drive around a nice neighborhood and look at the houses all decorated, that's a good, and cheap way to get into the spirit. Or go to the mall or a local school and watch a Christmas concert, that would be fun too.

I did get the work thing straighten out but I worry that this something that will always be in the back of my bosses mind- you know. (Does that make sense? The heater is up and running but let's just say it came at a price (oh my God)! But we have heat and seeing that its about 20 degrees outside that's a good thing. I think we'll take the whole family out tomorrow evening and see the lights- I think that's the best idea I've heard in a long time. Thank you for taking the time to respond.
