I have mandated PTO today. On the docket:
❏ Patient notes (6)
❏ At least one work-related phone call that is not going to be fun
(Sounds like great PTO, doesn’t it . . .)
❏ Figuring out some reasonable academic plans for A&C over the summer. Annabel has requested “non screen learning” ie workbooks. Mostly I just want them to read a lot AND write about what they read (obviously at different levels). But A will be entering 3rd grade and should probably do some practice math as well . . .
❏ 3 more months of photobook photos
❏ Work on Best Laid Plans
(Also: workout, meditation, etc. I should have gotten up earlier (@$&(@#U).
I also want both big kids to do online typing lessons! Maybe voice recognition will take over someday, but I can’t imagine they would ever regret becoming more efficient at this skill. Many options here.
Still feeling extremely blah and sad. Maybe Q3 will be a Quintile of just . . . not much. I HAD A BLANK PAGE IN MY PLANNER YESTERDAY YOU GUYS. For me that is . . . not a good thing.
PS: I looked at my podcast feed yesterday and realized it was mostly an echo chamber of white privilege. Not bashing the pods I listen to but . . . I’m ready for some fresh and more varied voices. I just added Code Switch (you already know Gene Denby if you listen to Pop Culture Happy Hour — and he’s great) and First Name Basis. Other suggestions welcome.
