1- Today is the day I will catch up on all pending patient-related things. (Very much hoping!). I am basically caught up in GME/admin and have made progress on the clinical end, though I am not done. I have a half-day of patients (half of those telehealth which I have come to despise though I see the need).
So perhaps it takes 1 week to dig out from under a 1 week vacation hole?
(Is it 2 weeks for 2 weeks, and so on? I’ve almost never taken a longer vacation so I’m not sure, unless you count maternity leave!).
2- Malibu Rising finally came off of my library holds list so I started it last night. It does seem like the perfect Last Summer Reading book. (I need to revise my 2021 list – my original plans got a bit derailed, but at least I’ve still been reading.)
3- I did diligently write down how I spent my time yesterday until around 7 pm. It did sort of help to center me, so I will do this again today. I remember how in the early days of the pandemic I was doing this as well. I guess I find it a bit grounding.
4- Annabel had her well child check yesterday. It was very relaxing to go in with just a 9 year old! It’s not super efficient, but I really prefer to take the kids to appointments one at a time. Our current pediatricians office is literally 7 minutes door to door from our house, which helps!
5- From our local headlines:
We start school next Wednesday. Our school IS requiring masks after all children 3 and up (unless medical exemption), which I am happy with!
Happy Friday! About to jump into today’s workout: 45 minutes full body. While the completist in me hesitates to make a swap, I will likely sub a run for tomorrow’s jump rope workout because a) I don’t have a jump rope; b) that sounds unappealing; and c) that seems like a reasonable sub.
