i have a lot to do today:
plus, i'm still on page until monday at 5 pm (admittedly, i'm already looking forward to the glorious feeling of signing off!).
initially, i started feeling a little bit sorry for myself. my inner id whined, "it's saturday . . . why can't i just relax and do what i want?"
but then, several things occurred to me:
a) i picked this job! i should own up to my choice, or make a different one.
b) it's really not that bad and there is nothing on that list that is truly offensive to my sensibilities.
c) josh left for work before 6 AM this morning (poor guy). he didn't complain! and i work WAYYYYY less than he does.
d) 'back in the day' (ie, just a few month ago), i might already be hours deep into an ER, NICU, or ward shift by this point. residency makes fellowship seem like a spa vacation by comparison.
i'm glad i have it all documented so that i can remind myself how much better i now have it!
back to that first item: i think that my choice has actually been the right one (whew). because really, now that i've thought about it a bit, today doesn't sound bad to me at all. now, off to write those dictations . . . and hopefully the long-promised restaurant review page!
new bedtime reading
i finally finished american wife the other night! i know some felt it was too long, but i actually enjoyed the whole thing. i like curtis sittenfeld's writing style and i got quite attached to the quasi-fictional characters, even though they certainly had their flaws.
in writing this post, i stumbled upon mention of this book:
i tend to alternate fiction/non-fiction for my bedtime reading, so i thought this would be a worthwhile choice. the reviews on amazon are actually a bit divisive, so i think this will be an interesting read. i will definitely report back on how it pans out!
anyone else out there enjoy non-fiction as well as novels? which titles have been your favorites?
workout: rest day. i always plan my rest day on friday, but i almost never end up making it through the week without having to swap it for an earlier weekday. it was nice not having to rush to the gym yesterday AM and not feeling the least bit guilty about it!
in the kitchen: lots o' clean eating leftovers from earlier in the week. no muss, no fuss. this worked out perfectly since i was at work until 7:30 pm . . .
board prep: for the first time since implementing my master plan, i had to miss a study session (i had an epic workday). i plan on making it up today!
