i slept until 7 this morning -- unthinkable for a work day! and the wonderful part is that i slept right through night 7 on the pager. [don't worry, i didn't sleep through pages -- i just didn't get any!]. and that's it for overnight call in 2011.
given that i'm late, i'm going to keep this short and sweet. let me just say i am so excited for 5 pm to roll around so that i can begin a 3-day weekend! it's not that i really worked all that hard this week; it's just that it got really old being on while it seemed like everyone around me was either off, or gearing up for a nice long break.
finally, i have to say that doing the bare minimum over the past 7 days [while being on the pager] was just . . . unsatisfying. it wasn't as restful as i imagined, and yet i managed to get bored! i realized that i'd actually rather be busy at work -- time moves so slowly when i don't get to spend any of it in that lovely flow state. i think this is why i typically prefer clinic situations. since appointments are scheduled, you're not at the mercy of the peds endo gods to determine whether any given day will be feast [overwhelming] or famine [blah].
anyway, it's off to work for one last 9 - 5 and then a little break, made even sweeter because josh is off too.
plans so far
✰ see a movie [young adult probably?]

✰ a lot of relaxing and just hanging out
i was totally impressed at how many of you wanted that planner [i figured most people who love planners would be set by now :) ].
here's our random # . . .
and the winner is rachel, and i promise i didn't pick her because of her flattering comment!
rachel, i've emailed you and will get you in touch with amy who will send out the planner! and i am pretty sure some of us [ahem, myself] would love an update on how it works out!
workout: 3.1 [ish?] in 33 minutes. still running the whole way, but i'm definitely slowing down, and my footpod just ran out of batteries which is maybe a good thing!
i don't subscribe to the magazine, but eating well has a lot of recipes online, and the few i've tried have been decent, as well as very healthy.
this stuffed creation was no exception:
the recipe is here. it's definitely on the lighter side, so if you're pregnant and hungry like i am you may want to accompany it with something additional -- in my case, lots of brie and crackers while waiting for josh to get home. mmm.
