I won the Apron Book Giveway at The Apron Goddesses! It's a pattern book with 20 vintage apron patterns in it, and I simply can't wait to see it! Julia, the head Apron Goddess, is always hosting great apron-related giveaways. If you haven't visited her blog, you really ought to, because she is riding the crest of the latest trend with this apron thing and you could be a winner, too!
I didn't even know I'd won - I pulled trauma call yesterday, and it was a rough one. The weekend isn't a real weekend at a trauma center until you've had victims of a gunshot wound, a car accident and an ATV accident in the operating room, and we had multiples of the first two yesterday.
I went in at 6:30 a.m. (and, really, the only positive thing about weekend call is that you can sleep a little later) and didn't get a chance to eat lunch until 2:30 in the afternoon, when one of the Labor & Delivery folks took pity on me and came down to watch my patient (a car accident victim) so I could go grab a bite. And I was lucky to get that! Other than that, the rest of the day was spent in motion! I sat down in each case just long enough to chart, and in the bad ones I didn't even sit down to chart - I just charted in between adjusting things.
So I was beat. I came home and changed into PJ's and went to bed. The Princess wanted to come visit and normally I am always up for Princess time, but last night I just couldn't manage one more thing, so I asked her dad to tell her that we needed to postpone it. She is a sweet and sensible Princess, though, so I am sure she understands.
Then I talked to Hannah's mom, who knew I'd been stuck in the hospital all day. She told me I needed to take a look at The Apron Goddesses, and I knew immediately what that meant! And I've nattered on for a page and a half just to explain the lift that news gave me - to be so exhausted and feel so beat and then to get good news. I can't even describe how it felt, but I'll bet you can picture it!
So, Julia, thank you so much for hosting such a great giveaway on your lovely blog. I am so excited about winning it! I'll get the book, and I'll review it here, and I'll make a couple of aprons, and if one of them turns out well perhaps I'll have a vintage apron giveaway! Won't that be fun?
