I have the day off! I never have the day off unless it’s a holiday, flying to California, or the power is off at work from a summer storm. I am planning to spend the day cooking and cleaning. My day might be highlighted by having lunch with Aaron. The boy who has disappeared these last few days.
It was a diabetes kind of work day. I had 2 snacks of these:
Loves me some carbs!
I spend most of my day teaching patients how to have 45-60 gm carbohydrates at most meals. For my own meals, I make sure that I have that minimum amount of carbs at a lot of my meals lately. Interesting how we are all in different situations. No? Right. It is frustrating to most.
I had time to get caught up on charting before leaving for my 3 day weekend. (I actually have to go to work today to drop off a few beer fest tickets to a nurse.)
I met up with Aaron to get said beer tickets for nurse at the beer fest location. As we parted, I gave him a heads up that I was going to steal his garden sage. That stuff grows like weeds.
And while I was there I snagged tomatoes and arugula. Homegrown arugula is peppery-spicy!
Conquest of the night: squash gnocchi. I had never made it before.
I knew the issue with gnocchi is that it can end up really dense.
And that’s what mine was. Note to self: leave scratch Italian dishes to Sicilian boyfriend.
After watching a few more season 8 Grey’s episodes (sshhhh, don’t tell Aaron that I’m watching it without him), I began cleaning. There is an after-beer festival dinner going on at my place which is a great motivator to clean that corner that hasn’t seen the light of day in 5 months.
I found some great pieces while going through the pile on my desk. I first found my new CDR card:
Translation: proof of RD card.
And then I found 2 things that I may cherish more than my undergrad diploma. First, I found my dietetic internship certificate (printed on Dunder Mifflin paper!).
This was SO much harder to work towards than my undergrad!
And then I also found my certificate declaring that I am in fact a registered dietitian by the American Dietetics Association. It’s already a piece of history since ADA is now Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (still trying to remember the new name!).
Must get going on the rest of my cleaning. What will I find next?
