Yes, this week was longer than it should have been, especially considering it was only 4 days, but I actually checked everything off the list and feel pleased with that. And I cleaned my apartment this afternoon, gathering an epic amount of recycling and helping to tame the chaos.
For Ben’s short day at work so he could recoat the upper cabinets. My body’s starting to feel tired, so making it a real team project was more than welcome.
For an afternoon spent working on things that needed to get done and the satisfaction of crossing them off my list.
For, finally, a home-cooked meal. The kitchen’s not really usable, but the grill is!
Went out for dinner with the wife and a friend tonight. Food was dire, but wife, friend, beers and margaritas were all top-notch. Yum.
Upright again by noon today. It’s good to be back in clinic, even though I’m still walking into walls and not treating patients.
Also, there was a fierce competition involving a Sporkle quiz of 90’s cartoons, featuring Spaceghost. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy and miss Buckland and Jen.
For an exhausting day at work. The number of things I got done was quantifiable and it reminds me that I rarely have 11.5 hour days at work anymore.
Sand, paint, scrub, prime! Grateful that by next week, we should have the kitchen we have envisioned a long time now. Glad I have the wherewithal to make it so.
In an otherwise frustrating day, I learned that Michelle Bachmann is not seeking reelection. This makes me grateful that a) her platform will be more limited henceforth and b) I may not be able to walk in a straight line, but at least I’m not batshit crazy.
For E joining us. For finding milk and cereal when I’m too wobbly to want to walk to the grocery store. For managing to forgive myself for some of my to-do list. For Vitamin C and Lemsip. For finally writing a reflection on my return to clinic without being overwhelmed by frustration and injustice.
