I'm here for my annual AORN Congress meeting, when my professional association will conduct business, present educational sessions, run one of the health care industries largest trade shows, and yes in the evening have a lot of fun.
This is not, however, a vacation. Somehow, a bunch of people, not just some of my nursing colleagues, seem to think it is. After all, I'm not going to Hospital, so it's not Work, right? On the other hand, there are a few of my friends (nursing colleagues and not-nurses both) who know exactly what I mean. Oh, Yeah, Baby, not going to Hospital. Not getting days off either, eh? (Hey, Skippy, RWI, sound familiar? *EG*)
On the other hand, despite the hectic nature of the time, it does seem to bring some spiritual renewal and refreshment.
I guess I should get cleaned up and dressed and go over to the convention center.
