Wow, what was I thinking? This weekend, everything so to come together. I had a thesis committee meeting on Friday; I have to prepare for two midterms (Monday & Tuesday); I had opera on Saturday night; I am on call; and at the last moment, Michael decided to come visit for the weekend.
I have gotten better at looking ahead to try to prevent freak-outs. One of my partners agreed to take one of the call days. I also arranged to take off take off Thursday, Friday, and Monday. So not only have I been able to get a lot of work done, I have done it a non-frenetic pace...and I've been able to enjoy myself as well!
