Christmas - On Call
This will be an odd Christmas for the family. I am on call the week of Christmas and must be within 30 minutes of work. I don't see it as a bad thing because others will be in the hospital and we need to provide support just as any other day.
We have made special plans and basically cancelled Christmas for a few days until all settles down.
Fortunately the grandkids get to celebrate twice this year! We will be decorating this weekend and making plans with the family just as many will. It's always nice to see the kids have a great time. The good part about waiting a few days is we miss all the holiday traffic and rush to get to the stores in time. With a few more days, they may get better gifts!
I hope everyone is enjoying this Christmas season!!
