1- This was a WEEK. I am triggered emotionally now every time a kid gets a URI. G ultimately tested negative for CV (yay) but we kept her home 2 days. I still had childcare for most of it, so this wasn’t such a big deal! Maybe this wasn’t even the full cause of my distress this week. But I was sad for a lot of it.
2- Podcast rec: Dr Becky’s Ep #40 of Good Inside with guest Eve Rodsky. What a great pairing! I sent this to multiple friends.
3- I think I really need to do some social things. Yeah COVID etc, but a) hopefully we have peaked here — unless there is a dual peak, things look promising!) and b) it’s our good weather season, so doing things outside is generally doable. I need to get some things on the calendar that aren’t just sitting sidelines at a kids’ sports event, stat.
4- OMG, winter is actually sort of coming. I’m actually moderately alarmed at the thought of spectating a 3-4 hour track meet in 40 degree weather on Saturday. I should have actually bought a coat when I was discussing it months earlier! Ahh well. We may have to go to Target tonight to buy Cameron some pants and something warm for under his uniform. Gahhh.
5- I’m just feeling really really tired lately. I don’t know if it’s related to mood, my attempts to run more (though I am not really running that much — haven’t even hit 20 mpw), or just to things feeling challenging at work (plus somehow I seem to have accumulated more 7:30a / 5p meetings. I am going to tally these up . . .). Maybe I am just old. I haven’t gotten blood taken for a while so maybe I will schedule my PCP visit soon (need another mammogram RX anyway . . . sigh).
