no babies suffered on my account at the community hospital this weekend. this is not because i am a heroic pediatric goddess-woman, but because there were really no scary scenes that required heroism skillz. there was one meconium delivery, but he came out screeching and feisty. i am very happy about the lack of drama, and also exhausted. apparently sheer terror is very tiring.
what i want to do at this moment:
or, alternatively, nap
what i need to do today:
finish my presentation for tomorrow’s morning report
what i don’t NEED to do today but probably should because it will make me feel better:
easy run and lift
basic apartment cleanup (recycling, kitchen, etc)
we’ll see what pans out.
studying: some NRP (resuscitation) cramming prior to my shift
running: 8 miles on the american tobacco trail (yes, it is somewhat ironic that our major exercise path is named after a carcinogenic lung-rotting plant, but whatever). i didn’t time my splits for once and just checked my watch at the beginning and end. 8 miles complete in 73 minutes, so 9:08 pace. not blistering, but not bad as it was almost 80 degrees when i finished. i listened to this american life and chilled out. it was good.
cooking: okay, this might be a disappointing first cooking picture, but it is what it is! i got home fairly late and didn’t have the energy to make anything more exciting than veggie burgers for dinner. at least i dressed them up a little bit . . .
specifically, this was a dr. praeger’s veggie burger on an ezekiel bun with sharp cheddar, sauteed mushrooms, and ketchup. on the side are trader joe’s chipotle baked french fries, which i thought were sweet potato because that’s what they looked like on the package.
this was a good dinner, but i didn’t really like the fries-with-sauce (they were better plain, and really i wanted them to be sweet potato). and after i recover from this weekend, i will post things that actually require combining fresh ingredients.
