We've had a pretty good holiday weekend, even though it hasn't seemed too celebratory for me. That's one thing I've noticed about residency and young doctorhood: holidays aren't much. We have this conversation when we're looking at schedules and planning trips. Sometimes you have time off, sometimes you don't.
Ball game Friday night. Ross got to run around the bases at the end. I was way more excited than he was, and that's saying something. I don't think I've ever gotten to do that; since I have a less-than-5-year-old, I got to participate. Have I ever told you the story about how I DIDN'T get to be a Travs batgirl when I was a kid. I'll spare you the pain. Let's just say it was tragic. And unconstitutional.
So we ran around yesterday, accomplished some errand stuff, spent time with my mom, and ended up going to Whole Hog for dinner followed by a movie (Earth). We were planning on Monsters/Aliens, but you know how plans are. Apparently my widget for movie times isn't so correct. So we got there an hour early and went to eat barbeque instead. We were the only people in the movie theater, which turns out to be perfect when you have a two-year-old watching a nature documentary featuring the bland, serious voice of James Earl Jones. He was all over the place, and we let him. Lesson: don't plan.
Today has been pretty rainy and dull, i.e. not much to post about. We made it to church (there was plenty of room there), and then I studied. One of those weekends where we keep thinking we'll plan something to do and do it. Like I said, plans are overrated.
Hopefully the game and fireworks won't get rained out; so far, so good.
