But it doesn't feel like it. Today is about 50 degrees and not all that nice. Actually, crappy. Rainy, windy, cold. Add the fact that the pup is ridiculously enthralled by the umbrella and hence won't actually go to the bathroom while I have it open, and it's been on the miserable side this morning. But I have no where to be until 3 this afternoon, so I'm cozy in the house. I feel like I have so much to do, all my thoughts about it could come rushing out of my ears at any moment. I've always been less than productive when I start freaking out about how much has to be done. So I'm trying to break it into managable bits and work from there. We'll see if I still feel sane by the end of the weekend.

My weeks in emergency medicine have gone exactly as I expected. The shifts are quick and kind of fun, but leave me knowing that both emergency and pediatrics are not for me. I get really sad to see kids so sick. It is handy to learn about peds since it will make me feel more well equipped to take care of my own kids one day without being that parent that runs to the ED everytime the kid has a fever.

I better get to working on some of this mountain of work. I feel like I'm pretty much swimming in it at the moment. So much busy work, it makes the 14 hour shifts of L&D seem easy.
