COVID19 life

Day 65: 39.996

May 19, 2020

25 (I find 25-year-old me really cute)

30 (and yet 30-year-old me sounds kind of annoying)

35 (thankfully this version of me seems closer to ‘normal’)


Tomorrow is my birthday. Having had a blog for nearly 16 years (and having written many a birthday post), I feel . . . a little pressure to post something momentous for the big 4-0!

But not today because I am just happy to be done with call. And I have get to get my “Booty” workout done.


In other news, things are still a little (okay more than a little) stressful at work. I will write more on that later. Call was fine though I’m glad to be done. The diabetes educators yesterday told me I was their favorite on-call doctor to work with!!! I wanted to frame that statement (and also show it to Josh because WOW that is inconsistent with my home on-call persona).

The non-clinical portion of my job is feeling . . . challenging. I need to figure out if I can fix it (because truthfully I love many aspects about it). I don’t think I’ve been this stressed about ‘work’ in a long time.

ANYWAY. Back to simpler things like today’s Booty workout. More tomorrow. (No pressure!)

    Happy birthday in advance! I enjoyed starting your “40th B-Day” podcast episode this morning when I woke up. (Will have to finish later as I only listened to a little part of it so far!) Very fun episode. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looking back is definitely one of the best parts of blogging.

    Happy birthday week!

    Dear Sarah, Happy Birthday! Hope all you wishes and dreams come true! I also recently turned 40 and have been reading (and loving!) your blog for years, although never commented before. Thanks for what you are doing in this space!

    happy birthday! I listened to the podcast today and after hearing about your original plans for the Inn at Little Washington, I saw this article this afternoon about the owner’s plan for reopening ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy birthday! Hope it is wonderful!

    I just signed up for Beachbody today at your recommendation. Canโ€™t go to my normal classes now (thanks Covid!) and I am NOT up for running in summer heat, so 21 day fix it is. Iโ€™ve only done one so far, but enjoyed it. Thanks for the red!
