Sweet Doug

Yesterday was a pretty busy/bad day at work. I hate when I have 6 patients, everyone gets gypped on their care I feel like with meds being late since all the meds are due at the same time and it is physically impossible for me to be in 6 rooms at the same time; and me having no real firm grip on the doctor's plan for the patient since I have no time to read doctor's notes. I hate those days. There is a small satisfaction in knowing you did your best to time manage and still make it through the day, but it just seems more manageable with 5 and then I have some hope of having a conversation with a patient and/or being able to look into stuff for them. Anyway, when I went for my breakfast break (at noon) I texted Doug that if he really loved me there would be a box of cheez-its at home waiting for me after work. And then, hours later when I walked out to my car I see this:
He had found my car in the parking lot (which is no easy feat in itself) and brought me cheez-its, a coupon for a free sub for dinner, and even printed me directions to the place. So thoughtful. Later he told me he had to go to 5 stores because he couldn't find any cheez-its. The dedication!!
Today is his Friday off and we did an exercise video together. (He won't do the girly ones, which is fine, but I have a good weights one led by a man and he'll do that with me sometimes) love that we can do it together! Had breakfast together, and then he mowed the lawn while I vacuumed, and we did some organizing in our 'junk room'. Which always makes me happy to have things neater.
Then I made a quick lunch
Morningstar spicy black bean burger, mmmm, and fresh beans, tomato, and zucchini from mom's garden. So tasty. My garden seems to be a sad failure. I just don't understand. My tomatoes got a bunch of splits on the sides and then I'm afraid a fly was laying eggs in there or something. Out of 4 zucchini plants I got only 1 zucchini weeks ago, the others blossomed but never made any more fruits, and now one plant shriveled away. So sad.
Anyway. Tonight Doug and I and some of his friends are off to the dream cruise. Should be fun!

  1. That lunch looks so good! My tomatoes got that weird split in them too! Feel like my garden soon turned into puppy's toy bin, as I find dried, split cherry tomatoes scattered amongst her favorite play areas. Oh well, it did save me out of a jam once or twice when an impromptu recipe called for a little tomato or I needed it for a salad.
