I am feeling happy and humbled all at the same time. I found out this past week that my entry was chosen to represent St. Luke’s in the Wisconsin Hospital Association’s Employee Pride contest. Andy and I get an overnight stay at the Kalahari Waterpark and Resort in the Wisconsin Dells and we will attend an awards ceremony where my entry will be read. So the good news is that my primary purpose for entering — sharing my story to help spread awareness about the importance of compassionate care — is being achieved. The awkward part is that we traditionally publish the winning entry in our newsletter and I am the editor. But I think I found a clever way to address that. My boss loved it anyway.
The bonus? The Kalahari has an arcade. With skeeball. And I am a skeeball FREAK. I love it. And I kick ass at it. W00t!
