catching up

I'm still not quite caught up from my vacation, but I'm getting there.  This week*, our nanny took A&C  home with her on Wednesday afternoon, and is bringing them back this morning.  The arrangement translated into 2 kid-free evenings and mornings, and allowed me to catch up with work and rest -- or at least get close.  (Taking vacation = coming back to an overstuffed patient schedule AND an electronic inbox overflowing with lab results and patient requests -- not the most welcoming reentry.  But still worth it.)

Having the extra childcare was much appreciated.  And certainly a luxury, but one that many working men with SAHM wives probably get to enjoy fairly frequently.  So I am refusing any pangs of mommy-guilt that may attempt to worm their way into my consciousness.

It's Friday, which means the weekend is near!  Hopefully today will be an uber-productive work day, because I'd love to finish out the week feeling reasonably on top of things.  Then, Josh is on call.  It's going to be a hot and sticky weekend here.  I have a playdate figured out for Sunday morning, but nothing for Saturday yet.  Ideas for indoor kid activities that are not children's museums?  (I may be museum-ed out for a little while after our vacation  . . . )

Off to take advantage of the rest of the AM and run.  It's "only" 82 degrees this morning.  Ummm . . . yay?

* At her suggestion!
