Just finished my Unthanksgiving** dinner that I fixed for family and friends. Remembering past ones...

Uncle Bud forgetting sugar in the cranberry sauce. *pucker*

Driving to Chicago in late November and getting lost in Chinatown.

Seeing my cousin Anne home from her freshman year of college...I was about 8 and we played a game involving making animal noises.

Being pissed at my mother MY freshman year of college because I wanted to stay in Boston and hang with friends. Instead I got a round-trip ticket to Michigan.

2004, taking care of my 10 month old baby who had had surgery earlier in the week.

My first one at my future in-laws...they have a large extended family who are all local. I think there were close to 50 people at that dinner!

This past year, having lots of friends over for an Unthanksgiving dinner on the Saturday.

**Unthanksgiving is a gathering of friends and family for a good meal but not on Thanksgiving. I host one every year on the Saturday after the official holiday. This year, I made rolls, turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cherry-cranberry chutney, cheesy green beans, pumpkin and apple pies with whipped cream. Everything but the stuffing was made from scratch.

How NOT to be bugged when flying

Read a text called Advanced Vaginal Surgery. Your seatmate will not speak to you (although he may occasionally glance your way in horror).

Must memorialize

This day...all nice patients. Not one crazy among them. No one wanted refills on schedule 2 narcs. Pregnant bellies were beautiful and I didn't leave any room coughing because of second-hand smoke.

Just go!

HP7 was good.

I swear, even when I KNOW something is going to jump out at me, I jump when it happens.

Hubby & I will go next weekend when we have family here to watch the rugrats.

The call gods were running a special on gastroenteritis this weekend.

Never have I seen so many pregnant people come in for nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.

It felt like Groundhog's Day.

Gave a lot of IV fluid and Zofran.

I think the secretarial staff hates me.

Normally, I'll get 1-2 crazies/day. Today, I had 12 well-known to me crazies! By lunch, I was ready to scream.

And risk management wanted to talk to me about a delivery from last month.

I'd drink tonight, but I'm on call.
