I'll be heading out of town tomorrow afternoon to Des Moines for the Iowa Occupational Therapy Association annual conference. I've got a dinner meeting tomorrow evening with the speaker to go over her plans for the Friday conference. I managed to find an inexpensive hotel room (and they have a pool and hot tub!!) that is between my dinner location and the conference site. Hopefully less than 15 minutes to either. I'm out of work tomorrow at 1:30 so I can get home to get the car, drive the two hours there, find my hotel, check in and get to the restaurant where we're meeting by 6:00 pm. It's gonna be a full day since I've got back to back patient care in the morning, a lunchtime work meeting then only half an hour to finish all my documentation before heading out. Whoosh. It will be a wild time.
I've been doing well on my workout schedule for getting zombie fit for next summer. I've started hitting the elliptical hard the past few days so I'm kind of glad I'll get the day off the workout tomorrow night. But I plan to keep up with basic strength and endurance training while I try to find some good running routes. I've also tracked down a few 5k runs coming up this spring and early summer so I can practice running a straight race for time without zombies or obstacles.
We've been having some lovely salads out of the greenhouse this week. But very few eggs. I've been getting only 1 or 2 eggs a day and most of the hens look exceptionally scruffy.
But the weather has been unusual! We hit 80+ today! In late October. And we've been having rain this week. Much, much needed!
Now, I've gotta go pack and get myself organized for the next two days.
