At the end of the day
When I worked at a kids science camp, at the end of each day we’d have time for ‘warm fuzzies’ and ‘cool pricklies.’ Our group could decompress by sharing the best and worst parts of our days. This has been a tough month, so I’m going to try this today and maybe life will feel a little decompressed.
+ a lovely lady made me dinner and did my laundry
+ some good listeners let me air my angst
+ lunch was a really good egg-salad/veggie wrap
+ I learned that my program will pay for my whole ATLS course fee, not just part as I originally thought
+ got my flu shot in less than 2 minutes
+ my car continues to start reliably after the magic mechanic did his ‘bidness a few weeks ago
– an email entitled “Demise of the X Y Clinic” arrived in my mailbox; I don’t know what I’ll do for my 12 weeks of Family Practice block
– a palliative patient, whose wish was to die at home, died in front of me on an ER stretcher despite my best efforts to get them home pronto-like
– didn’t find my groove at work
– a meeting, after 2 hours, just wasn’t my priority
– I lost my name tag. It has my name on it. Too bad no one knows who I am.
– my bank account overdrew by $4 because I made a loan payment the day before my loan interest payment was automatically withdrawn from the same account
