Working on a Saturday. The worst part is the getting up and actually getting to work. At 7:00 in the morning. Once I get here I’m fine. It’s nice and slow on the weekends (knock on this fake wood desk), the bosses aren’t here, I can play pandora and eat snacks at my computer, and the whole office is quiet and calm.
I’ve found that I thoroughly enjoy highlighting things. Something about it makes me feel very professional and in charge. I also like the way the cap sounds when I put it back on. It’s the little things.
For my mid-morning snack I had a whole thing of blackberries (is that a pint?) and a hunk of french bread. The office I’m in has big sliding glass doors, making me visible to anyone coming into the hospital. I’m sure people wondered if I’d ever eaten before in my life by the way I was chowing down on that bread.
When we were grocery shopping last Sunday I told Andrew I wanted to do a pot roast this week. His response: “Well, could you make it a different way? The way you do it is always gravy-y.” I told him I just always did it the way my mom did (which is yummy, I think), but I was willing to compromise. I used this exact recipe from the always delicious Pioneer Woman, and it was really amazing. The only thing I did different was use my handy dandy crock pot. We had it last night (with pomegranate seeds for dessert, yum), and I’m pretty excited about having the leftovers for lunch today. Again, it’s the little things.
Today I am 15 weeks pregñente. Feeling large and in charge. Especially when highlighting medical record numbers. Really though, I feel terrific. I woke up with a massive headache which was no bueno (listen to all this español), which led me to drinking my 3rd cup of coffee in almost 4 months in an attempt to get rid of my cranial achage. It worked. Sorry, Little Watson… mommy needed a pick-me-up this morning. Side note: My chesticles are getting quite impressive. For someone who stopped developing in that region around the age of 12, it’s been a lot of fun to have something of note under my puffy bra. Definite perk. Ha.
I’m gonna go find some stuff to highlight.
