Sweet potato pie, 8 paid days off, and other 'ish

So today was my last day at work until Jan 3 and ALL the days off are on the company's dime. In other words, I don't have to use my paid time off! Woooo-hoooooo!!! So as is customary for me, I made sweet potato pie from scratch and brought it to work. And came home with 2/3 left. Now I don't mean to brag, but in the past when I bring this particular baked item to work, it lasts an hour before it's all gone! But not with this crowd, who weren't impressed with the whipped cream I brought along with it. Well no problem, that's one less pie I need to bake to take home to NC to celebrate Christmas with family, LOL!!!

Speaking of Christmas at home in NC, my regular readers may recall I had to stay in Metro DC last Christmas because I'd injured my knees when I slipped in the tub. Then I proceeded to cry like a baby when I called home to talk to my Mom, listening to how much fun my family was having without us:( NOT this year, I already have the SUV packed and ready to roll first thing in the AM.)

In the meantime, I've been giving a LOT of thought to where I'm going to apply to med school and have decided that moving to a nearby state would maximize options for both me and my kid, the major concern here being her future collegiate career. And having a state DO school is a benefit as well!

Well, I'd better get back in the kitchen because I promised to help with some of the cooking this year and I get to bed early. And to all my loyal and new visitors, please be safe this holiday season as you celebrate! See you in the new year!!! Luv you all!!
