AND entering the last 3rd of April. Some longtime readers may have noticed that I often relish the fresh start of a new month . . . and fall apart a bit towards the end.
(Anyone else? No? Oh well. We all have our quirks!)
Anyway, my guard is up this time. Given the circumstances, I am honestly fairly proud of my April so far.
My screen time may be a little out of control, but there aren’t too many missing dots! There appears to be one day I wasn’t able to get outside and 2 rest days that I took after finishing 21DF.
(In case anyone is wondering, the categories stand for Meditation, Post, Workout, Outside, Skincare, Read). Yes, I am basically like Ben Franklin except I don’t think he had skincare on his list . . .
I just completed my weekly review and realized I didn’t accomplish any of the big GME tasks I had set out to do. Not sure why I set myself up for that sort of failure — I was on call. Maybe I was hoping it wouldn’t be busy, but it was.
On a related note, I am also proud of my relative zen this past call week. You all know it’s something I struggle with. I think the current situation has slapped/forced some perspective into me (ie: at least I still have a job and a fairly good one at that), and I also kind of appreciated being busy in a way I usually . . . don’t.
ANYWAY, it’s a new work week, one with less clinical and some much-needed GME catchup time. I need to finish next year’s resident block schedules, continue to manage the COVID-19 related changes, run our annual Program Evaluation Committee meeting, and more. But today is my last day of call so all of that will start Tues and beyond!
(I was just thinking how much of a pain in the ass our kids’ bedtime was a year ago, and how much better it is now. I hope it stays that way.)
AAAAND high of 96 today. Summer has begun in south FL.
