Loved it. Austin has a big heart and an amazing soul. I've watched a few episodes of her podcast, as well. She's bright and funny and kind but also honest and straightforward.

Nice. I've read a few chapters so far, and I'm already enjoying it.

I haven't done toe towel scrunches in a long time.  I need to remember them again when  my feet are tired or sore. Are they part of the PT for your foot? They really did help me when I was having chronic plantar fascitis

Yup, they're one of my PT exercises. They're supposed to help me rebuild my arch.

Woke up early, fed the cat, and went back to bed. Slept for another couple hours, which was divine. When I got up, I went around my usual morning routine. Got myself ready and headed to PT to meet a different person this time. He was very personable and took me through some new movements that have been added to my PT schedule. We did a lot more strengthening this time instead of all the balance work. After that, I headed in to work and caught up with my medical student. She has got access to the folders that are on our shared drive, finally, so she can be a bit more independent now than she was previously. We had a research meeting at lunch time and then a welcome back party for a nurse that had been working in the ICU during COVID's peak in this region. In the afternoon, I worked on finishing off my notes and the rest of the patient care for the week. When I got home, I did some meditation and reading, which was great. Took a nice bath. Headed to bed.

Had a nice quiet balanced day off. Got up early and didn't take any naps which was surprising. Did my morning routine including wash day with deep conditioning, so my hair got it's usual pampering. Spent most of the day reading, meditating, and relaxing. Went on two nice walks in the park. Chatted with a few friends online.

Busy day to start off the week. I slept in a bit until 6am, which meant my morning was quite rushed, but I still got through all the basics of my morning routine. I took a walk around the little lake in the park before heading in to work. I had four patients and two meetings today, but I still managed to join the white coats 4 black lives protest that pediatrics did in front of the hospital. I also managed to submit my new project the the review board, so that's on its way. When I came home, I heated up leftover fajitas and feasted on those. Then I spent the rest of the night reading, chatting with friends, and generally chilling out.

I woke up at 5am and got right into the shower (after feeding Dragon of course). Did my wash day routine and plopped my hair. Then I went about my usual morning routine. Writing, PT exercises, watering the herbs, and then went to my sacred space for meditation and more journaling. Headed out the door without breakfast, oops, but went on a lovely walk in the park before headed to work where I had an Rx bar instead. Had a few more patients this morning. Then some meetings in the afternoon. I've got a pile of 6 notes waiting for me, which isn't ideal, but I know that I'll get them done at some point. Came home and spent most of the night reading and chilling. Went to bed early.

Had a fairly typical morning yesterday except that I didn't have to do my PT exercises because I had in person PT. In person PT went well, with some improvements in my strength, coordination, and balance, so I am feeling pretty good. We'll see what Christina (original PT who did my eval) thinks on Friday when I go back in. Went in to work and mostly worked on catching up on my documentation of visits. Also worked on research and stewardship. Came home and had therapy. That went pretty well, so I wasn't feeling super drained afterwards. I did my PT exercises, chatted with some friends, and read a bunch before bedtime.

Had a long and busy day. Woke up at the usual time and went about my morning routine without any hiccups. Spent the extra time that I had in meditation and journaling. Went to work and caught up on the notes that I needed to do for the week as well as a few more meetings. My patient didn't come to see me, probably in part because of the downpour that was happening at the time. After work, I chilled out and spent some time online. I had my Stardew Valley play group for a few hours, and then I read until it was time to go get my mom from the airport. She's going to be visiting till the 23rd, and I'm super excited.

Got up early and did my morning routine quietly before Mom woke up. Headed off to PT bright and early. It went well. My PT was pleasantly surprised with the progress that I made in a few areas, specifically my hip motion and my balance. After that I went to the peds residency graduation. I got an award! Peds faculty lecturer award! They only gave out two lectures, and I am super honored by it. I spent the morning getting a little bit of research done and going to a few virtual meetings. Then Mom came to the office so that she could meet everybody over lunch. We spent a bit of time getting some more things done in the afternoon, and then I left early, so that we could go do things. We headed to Trader Joe's and got provisions as the first step. When we got back, I made some baked brie and we had that with hard cider as we attended a zoom graduation for one of my co-fellows at Minnesota. Afterwards, we were both pretty tired, so we headed to bed early.

Had a great day with Mom. We went on an adventure to the Huyck Perserve about 45 minutes southwest of my apartment. It was a lovely place for a little hike, and we got to see a few waterfalls. Afterwards, we had a picnic before heading home. We had a chill rest of the day with late afternoon snacks and then Greek delivery good for dinner. Good times were had by all.
