And so it begins . . .
My call week starts today. I am going to try my best to not flail out into a stress spiral.
Quite honestly, It’s going to be challenging.
Josh and I have a complex patchwork of childcare coverage over the next two weeks (actually, this week is more complex; next week when he is on I am basically covering). And OF COURSE our babysitter for Thursday (day we both have to work + no camp) has COVID. (She is clinically doing well, but I suppose I cannot have her babysit. For a minute I still considered it.)
On the positive side, camp is still open! IF we are lucky, this will provide 8a-3p childcare this Tues-Weds and next Mon-Weds. But I will consider every day this actually happens a win. Next Tues-Weds are days that I am not actually working and was sooooo looking forward to the childcare, so I would be mildly devastated to have them taken away. But I guess I would also survive. P E R S P E C T I V E . . .
Call week self-care plan:
Keep workouts more minimal this week so that I don’t have to get up as early
Eat healthier for the love of god (it’s been a carb/sugar fest around here)
Do other things to prevent scrolling as default activity – read Apples Never Fall and work on setting up 2022 planner(s) for relaxation instead. Even watch YouTube perhaps.
Try to get as much sleep as possible
