It’s been almost a month since I’ve blogged–sorry! Between the rush to prepare for Christmas–(i.e., marathon shopping trips) I haven’t really had time, but to be honest, I haven’t had much to write about, either. I’m still waiting for a contract that I hope will come through shortly in the New Year. I haven’t done too much writing because of that and the shopping. To be honest, I really need the spur of a deadline to keep the derriere in the chair. And the blogging-for-books thing seems to have dried up–only one new invitation from the publisher to blog an upcoming book, and the supply of books was exhausted before I could claim mine. So I’m missing that reason to blog too.
Tomorrow night, New Year’s Eve, I’m assuming I will be rocking the trauma room with the rest of the trauma team. New Year’s Eve has always been a heavy night for trauma, and with tomorrow night being a “blue moon night” (the rare second full moon in a month), it could be record-breaking. I’m not superstitious, but I don’t think there’s an E.R. nurse alive who doesn’t believe that a full moon is connected with busy nights in the E.R. somehow. So wish us luck!
Then on New Year’s Day we’ll hopefully see the Buckeyes beat the Ducks in the Rose Bowl. It’s about time we saw a bowl game victory–the Buckeyes have had a 3-year history of choking at the big one. We’ll see what happens!
