Well, my first week of intern year is in the books!
Everyone says that’s the hardest week, but that can’t possibly be true for me. As I mentioned before, I’m on outpatient clinic so not only did I have the 4th of July off, but some of my scheduled patients canceled their appointments so I had entire afternoons free. RIDICULOUS. But also pretty awesome because I got to stop by my favorite Indian spice store and stock up on ALL THE SPICES. Some I was running low on, some I didn’t even realize I needed (<– but I needed)….you know how it goes. Next week should be pretty similar, though I am scheduled for mostly walk-in clinic, which pretty much ensures that I’ll see someone. At any other time time this year, I’m pretty sure I would/will be incredibly grateful for so much inactivity…but I just want to start and feel like a doctor already!! (If you could just remind me of that sentiment when I’m really in the weeds during my ICU month and haven’t seen my kid for days on end, that would be great kthanks.)
As far as meal planning/prep goes, I actually went crazy last weekend and cooked all of our meals for the week on Sunday. It was insane! And kind of amazing to not have to do heavy duty dishes all week long. A girl could get used to this.
I’m planning for a repeat of that this weekend, so I’ll let you know how it goes!
