Friday. The end of another work week. The beginning of the weekend. It’s bitter-sweet. I’ll tell you why. Perhaps you can already guess.
By the end of the work week, I am tired. I am tired of listening to other people’s problems. I am tired of my seemingly endless Inbox of labs, ultrasounds, mammograms, and consult letters. I am tired of doing paps and telling people they have the common cold.
On the other hand, generally at the end of the week, I am relieved that I didn’t have to give anyone any bad news. I have a fairly young, healthy practice, so it’s not all that common that bad things happen. This week, I confirmed 3 new pregnancies and met 1 new, beautiful little boy.
I look forward to a quiet weekend. We’ll probably take the kids to the local park, play games in the basement. Inevitably, there will be a few “time outs”, I’ll get frustrated and wish I was at the office. By Sunday night, I am usually ready to go back to work. Staying home with the kids is just not my thing. I’m often more tired on Sunday night than I am Fridays! The kids wear me out! By Sunday night, all the things that bugged me by the end of the previous week seem easy to handle again. I suppose that’s a good thing.
Cheers everyone! Have a great weekend.
