Spring break was supposed to start today! This is a little sad, but also good because it means that I have no patients scheduled for the week (I was supposed to be off) and neither does Josh. It gives us time to continue adjusting to this new temporary normal, and to do it as a family.
Our nanny is off today and Friday, but will be here Tues – Thurs as I have to spend time preparing for the tele transition and working on contingency plans for my residents. Both of us are also ready to relieve coworkers if they become sick.
- help host resident morning report digitally (with virtual “Whiteboard” mode – first time trying that, hopefully it works!)
- clear desk & prep packages for return (2)
- obtain groceries (either order or — more likely — brave the store, since I want to plan meals based on what is actually available)
- pod record — Laura and I are going to try to re-record an intro, and then a 2nd COVID-19 bonus ep
Interesting link: The Coronavirus is a Disaster for Feminism – this was sent to me by reader Stephanie. I had a lovely zoom chat with my best college friends, and one of them noted that all the sudden, there is a significant divide between her coworkers without kids (they are super efficient, because all of life’s distractions are gone!) and those with kids (they are living with constant distractions now!).
I feel very lucky that Josh automatically took on his share of parenting duties. But I shouldn’t feel lucky – that should be normal and expected.
(I still feel lucky, though. And grateful. It is what it is.)

She is the happiest child post-nap that I’ve ever had.
