It had become kind of one of our Christmas traditions, almost like going to spend time with family. Mama and Papa Savage, haha. I really did miss it. Nick always looked forward to dodgeball, and well, even though some of the gifts were a little silly, I always liked the white elephant exchange. I had also been looking forward to Tristan getting to sit on Santa's lap.
I am going to go back to work someday guaranteed, as soon as Tristan starts school, but I had something at Grandview I'm never going to find again. When I was hired, Shelly said to me, "this is a family practice, and I want us to feel like a family". And to me, it did. I'm pretty confident that I was the only employee (at the time) who had been hired out of the blue, not knowing anybody. But even still, I'd never felt more at home at work. And I miss it, I miss it a great deal. Working that night shift alone was hard, very hard, but it taught me a lot, and I did enjoy it. When I heard that Ashley was going back, I got a little jealous, haha.
Oh well, life is about change and moving forward. But I don't think I will ever have as good of an experience working as I did at Grandview. I mean, really, how many people can say their boss delivered their baby?
