YES, a new month. And I have higher hopes for this one.
Our local case rates are coming down.
The month contains only one call weekend for Josh, and none for me.
We have a date night and a mini-getaway planned.
AND, our weather is starting to be a tiny bit less oppressive (though not truly nice – we need another 6 weeks or so for that).
My goals for the month are essentially to work on the issues laid out in my 100 days post, with some specific work related goals added in. AND, I am moving into my Full Focus Planner (affiliate link; code for 10% off is SARAHFALL10) for the last 13 weeks of the year, and I’m honestly quite excited about that. I plan to dedicate some time tonight to the move-in process.
The FFP is very conducive to time blocking, prioritizing, and generally acting intentionally so I think this will be a really nice way to finish out the year. I was thinking about it, and if I were not planning on moving fully into my Cousin for 2022, I would consider doing a combo of FFP + Weeks. Would be a very functional pairing.
(But my Cousin cover is soooo pretty; I am dying to use it!)
❏ Run outside
❏ Help kids get ready / shower
❏ Lead morning report for residents (chief in on well-deserved break)
❏ Go through work task list – get key things done, clean out “waiting/follow up” folder + clinical inbox
❏ Meetings x 4 (subspecialty rotation meeting, an interview, provider meeting, and peds endo team meeting)
❏ PM: Kids’ movie night (maybe something Halloween themed, since it is October? BUT nothing too scary because G will be watching and A is averse to all gore? Recs welcome).
❏ PM: Unplugged night for me – will plan out weekend, work on planner move-in as noted above, and read more of Normal People which so far seems just “pretty good”, but since it is so beloved maybe it will get even better as continue
