Networking, weekend goals, etc…
Tomorrow I need to be at OT's house at 915am…we have a home visit wayy down in rural Miss at 10am, the family with all the awesome butterflies…then we see our baby with bilateral hypolastic thumbs around noonish…YAY..she was adorable….haven't seen her since the eval…..i loooooooooooove baby work 🙂 I mean baby play….lol
Then we head back to clinic and back by 2pmish and work on evals, plans of cares, mileage paperwork, billing grids, etc.
I also want to stop by UT to pick up a fieldwork manual, and a few other stops..
Weekend will be busy but fun with friends!! And I want to try and do the little paperwork I have left so that I can start focusing more on catching up on reading, artwork, etc 🙂 Plus I should probably start getting ready for my next fieldwork with adults…reading up on stuff, practicing transfers and manual muscle testing, etc
National Student Conclave is coming up…I think in mid November…..which I can't afford this year so I am not going…but I am planning to try and go to TOTA (Tennessee OT Association) Conference near Dickson, TN, in late October..since it's only a few hours drive and I can probably stay with Nashville friends…it's a few days after I turn 26 years old OMG I'm so old 🙂 A friend pointed out to me the other day “You're closer to 50 than…nothing”. Gee thanks LOL.
I also am pondering attending the annual AOTA's Houston Conference in April…financially and somewhat chronologically I can't afford it, but if my New Zealand blogging mentor Merrolee goes, and/or if the class proposal that she and Natan and a few others spearheaded, gets approved for conference, then how can I resist?!!!!!! Who needs food or shelter anyway, I'd live in a cardboard box eating dry Ramen noodles if it meant getting to meet my Merro…:)
We'll see what happens….I love networking with OTs/OTAs so it's hard to stay home when I know I could be surrounded by them!!!
Sorry for the random rant, I got a postcard from TOTA in the mail about the upcoming conference, plus the COTA Charlene was discussing annual AOTA conference, so it's been a bumblebee in my ear or whatever that expression is.
