    We just got to our local brewery, they’re doing a benefit tonight and one of the other regulars, B, got excited to see us and ran out to his car and brought back 10 beers he got in Wisconsin to give us! We were pretty surprised, he’s always super nice and shares things he brings in but he kept some for us after giving some other stuff out!

    I’m on an easier rotation at the moment, but life is a bear and all of the physicians precepting me are worried about getting laid off, so things haven’t felt great lately.

    We got an AirBnb for the weekend and it’s this gorgeous cabin and you can hear a fucking babbling brook heading to the lake and the weather is perfect and it’s everything. I’m so at peace.

    Second best moment of my day...hell maybe of this godforsaken year...

    It rained overnight and cleaned the air quite a bit. The view of the foothills was great from my floor. I took a moment to enjoy the scene, and a resident, who happens to be a woman of color, walked up to me.

    Her: you know why it's so beautiful?
    Me: I can't believe just a little rain did this!
    Her: no. It's because Biden won!!!

    We elbow bumped, grinned and laughed through our masks, and headed our ways.

    We've got an epic round trip roadtrip coming up, and I was really dreading the planning. I'm in perpetual spoon deficit these days.

    P heard me. Like the made me feel seen and heard kinda way. He took it all on and, aside from the VRBO I found us months ago, has our itinerary laid out and reservations made. I could weep.

    Ohhh where are you guys going? I’m glad he took this on so you didn’t have to stress about it.

    I’ve long wanted to do a lap around the continental USA, like, down I-5, across the southern states on I-10, up I-95 and back across I-80, veering off the interstates to stop at whatever cool towns and attractions on the way.

    Go north up 75 (pick me up) and across the UP and MN/WI or at least take the car ferry.

    Okay I say "epic" because it takes more than two days, lol. We're going to Colorado (staying in New Castle) to finally meet my brother's wife and not-so-baby son! The drive there and back can be reasonably done in two days each, but we're breaking it up to do historical touristy stuff plus not be miserable on hella long drives. I'm away from work for NINETEEN glorious days!!!

    My brag is that I’ve now lost almost 20 pounds since my ER scare in May. I have 3.8 pounds to go until I hit my goal weight of 180. I am very proud of myself!
