CHEERS from NC! Today was so intense, but I'm so glad I did it. I have to admit I was totally nervous and felt awkward essentially inviting myself (and my colleague) to observe at Duke today. But I am so glad I got past those feelings and just forced myself to do it, because I feel like it was an incredibly useful experience. I will be bringing back a ton of fresh ideas on how to better care for our patients, and I don't think I could have learned nearly as much in another less experiential format. So, yay :)
Visiting Durham is also always fun, too. I just back from dinner at Rue Cler, a longtime favorite from when we lived there. AND I got to hang out with my sister (no pix b/c I totally forgot, but it was fun). I'm about to treat myself to a solid 8 hrs of sleep before heading back home on the early side tomorrow. And from noon-on I will be instantly OUT of work mode and back to focusing on these 2:
"snow day" at school = fake snow that melts in 2 hours. But it totally sparks joy while it is there!

I totally didn't do my usual weekend plan this weekend. Also, Josh is on call. So I "get" to be spontaneous and figure that out as I go along, I suppose.
on the to-do list:
- finishing clinic notes from Thursday (umm . . . during movie night tomorrow?)
- swim class
- ?? children's museum
Hmm. Will report back on this more spontaneous weekend on Monday -- we'll see how things go!
