irene is coming
i have clinic today. yay! it’s always a refreshing change from the lab and is almost a novelty these days when i see patients only 3 days per month [well, plus some weekends]!
durham is where the star is, so perhaps we won’t be getting the brunt of the storm, but they are still predicting the winds to be quite strong [up to 105 mph] and for a high flood potential. my guess is that most local patients will show up, actually, but i wouldn’t be surprised if the no-show rate is a bit higher than usual, especially if people are coming from farther east. and i definitely don’t blame them!
HURRICANE FEVER has officially hit NC — and looking at the map, perhaps it’s for good reason. i’m actually on call this weekend but really hoping that i won’t have to go in on saturday when the storm is raging outside [if it does, anyway!].
i did stock up on supplies:
oh no, if there’s a power outage, we’ll just HAVE to finish it . . .
i hope the power stays on and the pager stays [fairly] quiet because i have SO much to catch up on this weekend. i realize that i have a reputation as being somewhat organized, but trust me — things fall apart for me, too. and currently, they have. i could blame my nausea and fatigue . . . and yeah, i think i will. it’s been a rough week! but hopefully the magical saltines will help me get my life back on track.
planners are a reasonable $20 and notebooks are on sale for $5!
i love the practical weekly spread with the ‘to-do’ box for each day
if anyone goes for it and buys one of these, you will have to let me know how it works out so that i can live vicariously!
happy friday + stay dry on this hurricane weekend!
