Guess who?

Guess who finally got out of the house? Guess who finally got to go back work? Guess who has her sanity back??????
4 days at home is too long! I ran out of tv shows to watch, movies new and old, rooms to clean, shelves to organize, laundry, get the point.
When I thought I had reached the end of my rope Savannah called to say that we were working the next day! I quickly iron a set of scrubs and packed my lunch. She had said she would pick me up at 7:30 a.m. I got up at 5:45 a.m. (early for me) jumped in the shower and started getting ready. Seriously I was like a kid on the first day of school! Call me crazy, but I love my job and I love the girls I work with. Most of all I love a paycheck, and if we don't work we don't get paid. We don't have sick days, personal days and certainly not snow days. So days off work isn't a plus to me. Anyway around 7 a.m. Savannah called to say that our patients were already calling to cancel! This girl's heart sank! I wanted to work so badly, but without patients thats hard to do. She said that we were going to wait until 10 a.m. and then see what the weather looked like.
So this girl did the only thing she could......went back to bed. Thankfully our afternoon patients still wanted to be seen, so we went on to work!
I'm thrilled that the snow is melting, patients are showing up for their appointments AND my Dad got to come home! He hasn't had much sleep in the past week, and its starting to show. He is exhausted! I am hoping he will get to stay home this weekend and REST!
One of our patients told me today that he thinks another snow system is heading our way next week! Pray with me people that this isn't true! My Mom is a teacher, and they only have 2 snow days left for the whole year. If they use those then they have to start staying until 4 p.m. each day to make up the time. Dad is already exhausted, another snow storm isn't what he needs.
One last thing. My Sister went to the Doctor today and Baby Russell's heartbeat is strong and healthy! She was hoping to have an ultrasound and find out the gender, but no such luck. Instead she will (fingers crossed) find out Feb. 8th. It's probably a good thing she didn't find out because my paycheck really can't handle a shopping spree! Hahaha!

AND Just because I can't stand a post without pictures here is one from a snow day.
