Lord of The Rings : Return of The King was awesome.

My holidays were fun, got a lot of nice gifts, spent time with fam, worked. This weekend has been splendid. Yesterday, FiFi, Big and I went hiking at Deep Run Park, one of FiFi's favorite places to walk, because it has a lake and some ducks. Today I went to Mass, grocery shopped, baked brownies, did some laundry and am getting ready to cook pasta for dinner. It was such a nice weekend.

I hate snow, most of the time. Today, as flakes fell, and I made my way around the southern part of the city, it was rather pretty. Luckly, the ground is too warm and it wasn't producing a hazardous winter wonderland.

I got written up for the first time in my life. Medication error: the bane of every nurse's existance. I can't really give a lot of details, but for the most part, my bosses went to bat for me completely. Lurraine paged me with the message: "Love you and will support you...Sh*t happens, and we're okay. Lurrainey (her silly name)." I was okay after I got in the car after melting down in Leslie's office. "Mr. G needs you today," she reminded me of my actively dying patient. Work is good therapy. It makes me forget my problems, which always seem really trivial in comparison to the issues of my patients. Most likely nothing will come of this, so hopefully I can put it behind me rather quickly.

Very tired. On call this weekend.

Week 1 of Going Vegetarian...Again. So far, so good.

I've been trying to go veggie again for a while now. Visiting Mrs. Big's Mom in NC helped me jump start it again- she's really into organic foods and is also veggie. Before I started dating my ex, I was a die-hard vegetarian for about a year. I quit for a variety of reasons, including being stricken with anemia. This time around, I am working more of a regular schedule, as well as taking supplements to help combat any deficiencies. There was always something about being veggie that I was proud of. I felt in control of my body, I felt healthy and ethical. It also didn't hurt that I liked losing weight as a result, and I have to be honest that this is a motivating factor this time around, although a small one.

On call tonight. All is okay.

How cool is Lord Of The Rings? I watched both Fellowship and Towers this weekend, with Big and Fee, and I have to say that it kicks ass. Unfortunately, I am not able to join the gang for the midnight showing of Return of The King, as I really like getting more than 2 hours of sleep before a day of work.

So engrossed into the movies, we neglected to watch the news on possibly one of the biggest news stories since September 11. Imagine our surprise on Sunday night when we heard that U.S. Forces captured Saddam Hussein, hiding in a hole with some Mars bars. Very cool. Go us. ET says that a made-for-TV movie is already in the works.

Last night, Big and I watched WWE, talked pro-wrestling, laughed and had a good time. It's really amazing when you really, truly connect with someone so comfortably, it's as if you've been with them all your life. Big is so easy to talk to, no matter how lame I think the topic might be, he never makes me feel like I'm weird or boring him. Back before we started dating, I remember how we'd talk for hours, just about music or movies, but I felt like I had someone who understood me. Maybe that made it just that easier to fall in love with him.

I love my dog and my boyfriend. For the past few days, I have eaten better than I have in two years. I am selling fairly traded organic coffee at St. Mikes as part of a fund raiser. My family loves me. I have not one, but two pairs of Kate Spade shoes. My Christmas tree is beautiful. My bosses like me. And my Christmas cards are adorable.

So far, so good this holiday season.

Work again has owned my hinder since Thanksgiving. In my spare time, I have unsuccessfully tried to knit a baby blanket (good thing my friend is registered at Babies R Us), and have been listening to Dr. Phil's new weight loss book. Also have been attempting to eat better- inspired by Mrs. Big's mom. Also have been pouring over the latest issue of BUST, featuring Kelly Osbourne on the cover.
