Slow week in blogland

It is hard to believe that 2 weeks from today is Christmas. I have yet to start shopping-just can't get in the mood. Is the house decorated? that would be no. I dragged the reindeer out of the garage and put them in the front yard. There is a light out so one of them only has half a head lit. I unplugged them and that's that.
Could it be seasonal affective disorder? Or am I just a lazy slug? I am glad it is thrs and only one more day to work this week. It has not been a great week-full of angst. The administrator left yesterday, the DON has resigned and the rumors are flying. At one point in the last few days, I considered going with him to his new facility but I have changed my mind. It is a problem facility and I really don't need to put myself in a situation like that...and I have such a great commute now-only 8 miles. I can be at work in 15 minutes on a good day.
Also have to deal with the lawsuit against the last facility I worked at. The case goes to trial on Monday. I am on the witness list. Met with the lawyer this evening. Goody. If there is anyone out there considering being a nurse, think long and hard. You no longer take care of people, you write reams of paper, hoping you have documented enough so that somebody can't sue you. The sad part is that as the boomers age, there will be fewer and fewer nurses to be caregivers. It certainly is not what I went into nursing to do. Oh well
Have not touched the quilt I am working on since last Saturday. But the weekend is coming. Tomorrow though I am going down to take care of my little girls. I think we will make cookies or do something Christmasy.
Laurie comes home in less than a week. I have to get a carvel cake for her birthday which is also next week. I am looking forward to the get together on the 20th with the quilting peeps and cookie exchange. I have to find my recipe for my favs...maybe Sue has it handier.

Sending hugs to you. Bust open a jelly roll this weekend and those bah humbugs will go away:) I think a lot of people are feeling blah about the holidays this year. I know I am. Have fun with the girls this weekend.

We did "minimal decorating" . Most of my shopping has been online. It's great fun getting the packages in the mail. I haven't sewn since Saturday either. Things are in an uproar in our school system. Budget cuts and the economy are so stressful. I'm so greatful to have a job that I really like. My "kids" are wonderful!
