So many things have been happening since I last posted, which is funny because life is going to be a a billion times busier the next few weeks.
My last day of work was wonderful. I did end up doing patient care up to the very end – updating some enteral feeds for fluid restrictions, completing a palliative consult, troubleshooting a feeding tube that kept clogging. My coworkers continued to be the sweetest and one of my friends even walked me to the door at the end of the day! Then I met up with a friend from Buffalo for a final round of after-work drinks at Grand Army, which was perfect.
My parents were in town for the weekend and we had a great time doing fun city things with them. Plus we took a friend on a final foodie tour of the Lower East Side.
Adam “graduated” from residency and our families spent an afternoon celebrating what a smart, motivated, bad ass he is.
And today I am on my way home to St. Thomas for a short vacation before the move. Related update – we planned things out in a sort of ridiculous way and the moving process is going to be completely insane. This will be the last time you’ll hear from me for a week or two because I’m not even going to attempt blogging while we try to get everything else done.
Before “good bye, for now,” the weekend eats highlights! Flavor themes were coffee, fried chicken, and ice cream…
Iced latte from Black Brick.
Iced latte from Brooklyn Roasting Co.
Rose milk tea with *baby boba* from Pa Tea.
Scoops from Ice & Vice. Soursop pina colada and lemon poppyseed.
Sprinkles and strawberry jam ice creams from Odd Fellows.
I made tres leches cake for the party.
A final round of spiceland bao (and fried fish!) from Baohaus.
Dinner at Sundays in Brooklyn. I had a spicy grapefruit cocktail.
And spicy togarashi fried chicken.
Plus we shared a ton of delicious appetizers. Freshmade sourdough bread and beer butter plus Alpine cheese with kumquat jam. Black lentil dip with edible flowers and cultured buttermilk and flatbread. Crispy maitake mushrooms.
See you soon!
