Happy New Year's Eve

I finished the green sweater and went to get started on the socks when I realized I don't have the right sized needles - the patterns I do have the right sized needles for I don't have enough yarn for. I sent off for the right sized needles but will be doing mail box duty as they have to come all the way from Vancouver so in the meantime I'm finishing up the afgan and maybe doing a bit of reading. Eek. I had an ok day at work, nothing major but a lot of running around. One of my patients has a fairly new aide who is hoping to go to nursing school so I find her sweet and amusing - everything is an emergency and is dignosed to the 10th degree so I end up spending quite a bit of time on our visit. The patient enjoys the attention though and I'd rather have an aide that reports everything than one that reports nothing (until it falls off or turns green or something). When I spoke to the office I was told she'd be getting counseling but I said the magic words - "possible student nurse" so hopefully they'll be kind to her also until she gets over it. Most of us do.I got home around 5 and looking foward to being off tomorrow - and not being on call. I checked my email and there was one from the relative that doesn't like me. I of course went to delete it but curiousity got the better of me. Silly me, what was I thinking? Next time I'll delete it right off the bat but there are times in life you just can't help yourself. I can remember once when I was a kid going in the downstairs bathroom and being very surprised at seeing the ceiling over the tub sloping down in a strange bulging way. I stood on the edge of the tub - and I can clearly remember thinking as my finger neared that odd curve that MAYBE I should leave it alone - but my hand continued along it's pre-destined course and I was instantly covered in water and wet sheetrock from the leaking pipe above. So, same song, different chorus. The thing is - it's a new year and I have so much more going on in my life and I'm off tomorrow! So the email is gone and my first resolve of the new year is to listen to that little voice, because 99% of the time it's right. Happy New Year Everyone

Yep, always listen to that inner voice.
