Well, that was a short trip. But it was good. I am filled with a lot of ideas. At the same time, I’m sort of behind on a lot of things. I have presentations coming up and numerous personal obligations to fulfill and resident interview season to manage and podcast stuff and and and —
But it’s going to be okay. I can only do one thing at a time.
Today’s priorities (other than be with kids/Josh):
1- send detailed weekly email out to residents — ALREADY DONE. If they don’t feel loved when they receive a lengthy email from their PD at 5 AM on Saturday . . . well, they should.
2- podcast emails! When we record, I generally write an email that day to our audio team that includes show notes and any specific instructions (example: cut out something dumb I said). We recorded 9/19 and I have yet to do this email! (Don’t worry the eps don’t air until mid-October but STILL.) — EDIT: DONE AS OF 6:30 AM
3- book flights/finalize hotel for NC trip for my sister’s baby shower. I am taking Annabel! I haven’t yet decided whether we will leave evening and stay 2 nights or leave super-early Saturday AM and just stay one. But I need to get this finalized! — EDIT: DONE!
4- work on residency applications! I am in interview selection mode. It is a difficult task but I am 40% of the way through one of the piles. I did delegate part of this project to the APD (she is going to go through international grads specifically) but I definitely still feel responsible! EDIT: DONE (to the point that I wanted to be done) DURING G’S NAP
Whew. Kind of a lot for a Saturday. Hopefully G will take a good nap! I will save time by running with the stroller once she is up rather than trying to sneak it in early (also I owe Josh b/c he was up with her for an hour at 3 am, OMG). — EDITED: ran on my own. THANK YOU JOSH!
