Saturday gymnastics routine
I’m sad to say this little routine where I sit at gymnastics while all 3 take a class — usually writing a weekend post or checking up on email — is going to end. And probably never return.
The classes will still happen, but 2/3 kids are not excited about continuing and while I am insistent that they finish out the academic year (there’s just one more month!), that will be that. I will miss this peaceful time, perfect for chill laptop work and a built-in window for Josh to run, since I am usually done with my long run before I take them.
Instead, C may have more soccer or other sports on Saturdays, A plans on branching out into other things (she has mentioned acro / swimming / track / voice lessons / theater), and G may still be in this class but also maybe I’ll try to shift her to weekdays or a different session.
I guess the only constant in life is change!!!
Random travel question:
Anyone know about the little island areas around Vancouver (Vancouver Island / Nanaimo / etc)? This summer we are doing an Alaska (Disney) cruise out of Vancouver (very excited for this!!!!) and we plan on doing 2-3 days in Vancouver prior, but I want to do something beachy or mountain-y afterwards for a couple days. If you have recommendations for places to go or stay in that vicinity, I would love them!
D-I-T-L installment: Friday
4:45 up, read, plan, HS. I slept like %(*$, woke up at 3:30 for no reason and never really got back to sleep.
5:45 run, 6 mi easy (10:18/mi)
6:45 home, shower, kids, bfast
7:35 drive kids to school // drive to work
8:30 patients, notes + calls
12:30 resident presentation
1:00 lunch (I got Door Dash – Bolay); read blogs / write blog post / check email / relax. And some random admin like signing C up for summer basketball, some emails, order a bday gift, etc
2:00 various pt result calls etc, clear out work email, etc
4:00 inbox zero has been reached (EPIC / Outlook). Plan next week, did a meal plan / ordered groceries to arrive Saturday afternoon (my current policy is: TJs if I can go alone / Whole Foods delivery if not).
5:00 leave! Stop at library on way home. Now I need to suspend the rest of my holds bc I have too many books and too little time.
5:45 HOME! Kids had eaten super early so had dinner while reading Runner’s World mag. Then kids basically watched TV until 8 pm; I filled out our Essential Calendar (<– I am an affiliate; BESTLAIDPLANS will get you a 10% discount) and taped it with washi tape to the wall. It’s not the WORLD’s most aesthetic the way I did it . . . but it’s functional! We ate some leftover Crumbl cookies (and today’s run went really well so . . . is this my new carb loading practice?).
8:00 Kid bedtime routine. I felt fine all day despite totally inadequate sleep the night before until 8 pm when I wanted to crash face down into bed. Josh was at a conference so this was not an option but I definitely moved bedtime along.
8:45 Kids all in bed; went to own bed and asleep by 9.
