Day two at the new office and all's well. We're getting the daily minutiae that matter so much fine tuned. Wireless up and running, lamp shades on lamps, etc. We do still need to get some pictures and instruments hung - - tomorrow, for sure.
Murray's nurse is great - totally can-do and unstoppable. She's coming over to Quiet Corner Family Practice (QCFP) full time in 2 weeks. I waft in and out, sometimes with kids, sometimes with treats. Murray is a whirlwind of phone calls and techno gizmos. (Reminds me of our wedding week - I swear I thought the phone was going to grow into his ear. Remember he took a call during our toast at the rehearsal dinner? Amazing).
For me, the best part of starting up this practice has been the chance to see Murray work with his patients. I know that they love, trust and respect him and it's obvious why; he's immensely patient, kind, respectful and comprehensive. I don't mean to sound like I am surprised at this, but it is fabulous to witness - and to work with.
One of my favorite things in life is to see friends in a different capacity than I usually do - like when my friend Rebecca painted the tree on Natty's bedroom wall. She was in such a cool zone - her Artist zone that I don't see as often as I see her Momma zone or Friend zone. That's what I'm getting to do with Murray. And it's nice after 8 years together to see sides of him that I don't think about.
As for the rest of life: Natty had a fabo birthday, Sam is getting cuter and cuter (when will it stop?) and New Year's in Vermont was the usual great bash. No snow to speak of here and I'm missing Alaska, but that's nothing new. On the bright side: I'm ramping up to fulfill a 10 yr goal of running a marathon. Mayor's in Anchorage anyone? I'll see you there. You could not be less fit than me so let's get a move on! I'll keep you posted on my progress.
