At least the week seems to be going pretty quickly!
Yesterday was rather busy but last night was quiet, for which I am extremely grateful.
Because #stress, I decided I needed a new daily planner to play with. So — in honor of my 2022 Hobonchi order which is apparently shipping tomorrow, I broke out a Hobonichi Plain Notebook from last year (unused until now) and put it in my 2021 cover.
Call weeks call for extremely minimal to do lists. And also, to put really low hanging fruit on the lists so I can feel good about checking them off. Haha.
It is weird going back very thin paper (lots of show though and no gel pens allowed because I will smear them across the page) but I didn’t mind it as much this time. Maybe I just need a little break.
PS: So far I feel like I have been coping reasonably well this week. I have been more accepting of my very real anxiety around call and trying to work on addressing it in reasonable ways (meditation, planning as above, minimizing other responsibilities when possible, etc). It is still challenging. Last night Josh got home after the kids (and I) were in bed and I felt pretty negative and alone. Annabel had homework she needed help with, the other 2 needed to go to bed, and about 40% of my brain was occupied by the (many) (sick) patients on my list.
She finished (side note: math homework on the computer is kind of annoying; some things are easier on paper!), the other 2 got extra screen time, and we all survived.
5 more days! At least Josh is off this weekend.
