It's Christmas...yay.

It's Christmas.

The tree is up. LB (now a tall, high school junior) strung the exterior lights. The stockings are hung. I've shopped, wrapped, planned menus for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Brunch. I'm gearing up to grocery shop, cook, clean house, and somehow still manage to make myself look as magnificent as I can get (despite being fifteen pounds overweight) for the social media holiday photo.

DocH is OFF this holiday.

Notice there is no exclamation point after that sentence. Subtext reads: He won't be at the hospital, but he will be on his hospital laptop catching up on charting, administrative duties, etcetera, while I run around in the kitchen like a woman with her hair on fire. I've come to learn and accept there is no true OFF with my DocH.

It's okay.

He will be there to eat with us, he will be there to toast with us. He will be there to open gifts, play some games, and he will bring life, laughter, and love to the table like only he can.

I'm gearing myself up. Who's gearing up with me?


  1. Welcome back! I hope you and your family have a great holiday.

    1. Thank you! Trying to get back to it, but so little time!! All the best to you this holiday season!!

  2. Another who's glad to see you back! I hope this means that real life was good busy, not bad.

    I also hope you got to enjoy your holiday what with actually have DocH in the house (I know how rare that can be with docs).

    1. Thank you! The last two years have been mostly horrific- trying to get out of the funk. But, we had a wonderful holiday all together. We are, more than ever, truly aware of our blessings. I hope you are well, my friend!!
