1- Currently noting that we have a 2 hour meeting at work this afternoon (all providers + practice manager). I am reading Come Up for Air (pre-release copy) and it’s really making me question the length of meetings. Does it need to be 2 hours? And might we benefit from an agenda sent in advice, with the opportunity to add items? I really love many things about my workplace but I sometimes wonder . . . why are modern business tactics so slow to move to the medical world?
2- Currently pondering: Whether or not to buy (aftermarket) Taylor Swift tickets. Seriously struggling with this. On the one hand, when else will my kids *want* to go to a concert with me and know all of the words to so many songs by an artist that I love? It feels like a potentially rare opportunity. I listened to this podcast ep (recommended by Coco) and was like YES YES MUST SPEND OUT ON THESE MEMORIES! On the other, the WORST seats for the Saturday night Tampa show (closest to us, and other nights won’t work due to school/work) are $700+/each. $700 x 5 = OMG SERIOUSLY for one night (plus hotel)!? I’m all about spending out for experiences but I’m just having trouble with this one. I also have tiny bit of anxiety that the crowds will be too intense to enjoy the experience, especially with the kids.

4- Currently hoping that we are not all about to get sick. A’s class apparently had 10 kids out yesterday (!). Not sure which virus (flu vs COVID vs RSV vs mix of everything omg). And my nose has been running, ugh. I cannot complain – we’ve been relatively unscathed this fall and winter while so many have been sick. And it seems like a miracle that none of us got sick on our vacation! The last time I was truly down for the count was July 2022 so I feel like personally I’m probably due. As long as it doesn’t mess up a) my trip to see M + my sister or b) my half marathon in Feb, then I can accept it. (As if my body or the viral particles care what I accept . . .)
5- Currently thinking about the long weekend up ahead. Josh is on call and we’ve got some soccer, a play date, and more. I actually moved my clinic day from Monday to Tuesday for next week thinking I might take a kid to NC during the long weekend BUT that changed and now I regret my choice. Hopefully we will find some fun things to do during this (impressive for FL) cold snap! (I’m very excited to run in those temps!). 38F? SERIOUSLY!?
