Welcome 2009!


A few more hours and calendars will change. Gather all your round fruits, open all the windows, put coins in your pockets, fill the jars with grains, and turn all the lights on! 2009 is here! It’s going to be another new year.

Well, just like the last Christmas eve and Christmas day, I will not be celebrating the coming of the new year tonight with families or friends. I’m working tonight, and two more nights after that. Business as usual. That’s why I posted this quick greeting now.

In the Philippines, it’s a great time to be with your loved ones. I miss my last year’s celebration – the fireworks, the noise, the loud music, the happy greetings. Families would gather around the dining table for a midnight feast we call media noche.

But tonight, it’s going to be different. It’s not going to be a countdown of how many more minutes and seconds before the year is finally over. It’s going to be a countdown of how much more medications are to be given, how much urine the patient has passed, how many more call bells I need to attend and how many more charts I need to finish.

I may wish it’s going to be fun, but it does not sound that way.

I just wish that I get a patient tonight who will appreciate my nursing care to him. I think that would be enough consolation. And as the old belief would say, I would then get a whole year of appreciative patients. That would be fun!

Allow me thank all of you who never got tired visiting this site. Thanks for a whole year of blogging fun and interactions. I really appreciate the fact that you spend time reading my thoughts. I appreciate it more than you know.

“See” you next year, guys! Have a great new year!!

    I was surfing the net and I really loved your pictures in my city Dubai, 😀

    I’m from UAE and I really hate it here :p

    maybe because people get bored over their countries and they love traveling, not the place itself

      Hi AYSHA, thanks for dropping some notes. You’re lucky to have a very beautiful city. You might not realize that because you are already used to the place, but there are really amazing places here that you cannot find elsewhere. I think each cities have their own distinctions, and yours has a lot too.

    So it is true that nurses don’t have holidays? I guess we are needed that much!
