Oof. I went to bed with a headache and . . . it’s still here! I blame the beer I impulsively had with dinner last night (hey, Josh got home early! It felt like a celebratory occasion!).
It was an Ommegang Solera (a sour beer in a can), it had 6.9% ABV, and it was delicious. But I’m not entirely sure it was worth my current headache.
I know people love to joke about pandemic drinking habits, but I would say my alcohol consumption has dropped during the past ~4m. I probably drink 1-2x/week on average (and 1 drink at a time when I do because that feels like plenty, although a 6.9% ABV beer is probably more like 1.5 drinks technically). I definitely do not track alcohol consumption like Physician On Fire (kind of love his chart though!)
I think this is mostly because I enjoy drinking more in a social setting and . . . there really aren’t many of those at this time!
I am going to keep this post short because I slept in + have a work meeting that starts in 12 minutes. Thank you for the largely civil discourse and general vibe of support on yesterday’s post! I feel at peace with my decision which I think is a good sign.
Interestingly, a very detailed document popped up yesterday with information about online learning in the district. It did not convince me to change my plans for C, but I was pretty impressed with a) the level of detail and b) the “evening flex option” they devised to help working parents. Graphic below is from that document:
I can imagine this would also be helpful to teachers who need to help with teaching their own children. Interesting! I do wish they had a little more time for physical activity built in but I guess we will have to make sure that happens after school for all 3 kids. (Weather probably won’t consistently coooperate until Oct – Nov though. On that note: I’m watching you, Gonzalo. Please just no.)
PS: You know my habits checklist? The only one I checked off yesterday was my workout! I am fine with that though. I have come to embrace my off days.
PPS: I read Big Summer in 3 days. Highly recommend. Was totally surprised by ending.
PPPS: Oh! One more thing! I recorded this guest podcast ep PRE PANDEMIC (so: a long time ago). I hope it isn’t entirely irrelevant 🙂
