AOTA conference this weekend + presenting on Saturday

(To the sound of Music)

Yep. Every other Facebook and Twitter feed is about getting to San Diego for our 2013 AOTA conference. That either means I am exaggerating, or I have a lot of OT friends. 
Or more likely, a mixture of both.
I’m going to be going Friday, Saturday, and possibly Sunday morning….but after running around at work all week I think I may be pretty tired. I’ve decided all treatments on Wednesday and Thursday will consist of supine extension with vision occluded…..aka nap position. hahahaha just kidding. Can you imagine all my bouncy kids falling for that one? Yeah right. 
I’ve had several long-time blog readers email or comment saying they want to meet-up briefly…sounds great. 🙂 I’ll probably be at the School Steps Inc booth some (a great employer!) and/or wandering all over in sessions and visiting with OT friends from out of town as well as exploring the EXPO which is my favoritest thing in the world, well except for peanut butter and chocolate. And oh yeah, PRESENTING with a fabulous OT techy-crowd on Saturday on digital and social media if you want to check us out. This is where, if I wasn’t so lazy, I’d copy/paste our title and stuff. But I am. 🙁 It’s late, I have to conserve my energy. Hope to see you all at conference verrrrrrry sooon.
And oh, if you’re reading this, and you know of how to get an Expo hall badge for free, please let me know. I have a prospective OT student who I really want to let in to see the awesomeness.

Loved this photo album


“In a photo series entitled “The Little Prince,” Matej Peljhan, a Slovenian photographer, brings Luka’s imagination to life by including the 12-year-old in a variety of lifelike scenes.” (Luke has muscular dystrophy)

The best cheer me up ever, ahahahaha

A friend sent this to me via e-mail  (who knows I have been feeling down). She was trying to cheer me up. It made me smile. Just sending the applicable part. 

“Still, I feel like you have an inner strength and light that can’t be held back or extinguished. I’m serious! Maybe it’s your Miss Awesomeness spirit woman. She is really a superhero to the kids she comes across. And when kids see her, they never forget her. Their hearts cry in joy when she passes by their classroom. 

I can describe her for you:

On her head: A crown of 1,000 miniature party balls with multicolored glass

Around her neck: A sloth, preferably a black one

At her back: A silky pink cape that always looks like the wind is blowing through it

Around her torso: An empire waist, fitted purple sparkle corset, not revealing too many assets though

Circling her waist: A black belt with 10,000 compartments/pockets where all the necessary OT toys can be found…from the smallest writing utensil to the largest piece of lava paper you ever saw…somehow everything fits perfectly”

Happy OT Month :)

This photo was done by the University of St Augustine, in FL, for OT Month! (Always April). 

So awesome!
Consider uploading your own versions on Facebook, Twitter, blogs…with OT that you wrote in sand, with rocks, with Wikki Stix, Theraputty, bodies, silverware, anything you can think of….
