Today and tomorrow is the community open houses for the new University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital; set to open December 10th. I heard there was 7,000 people a who went through today.

On Thursday, employees were invited to go over, we had about an hour. I only got to see Lower Level 2. There was some stuff that got me tied up, so I had to go back; and didn’t get the rest of the tour. I will likely never get to see the rest of the stuff unless they are units I need to take stuff to.  I feel a little bummed by it all. I didn’t volunteer to work because I wish “thank you” would be thrown around a bit more than it is, or even just once.

Our office isn’t moving. A few of the people in our office are going. Half of the stuff I order will no longer being coming to our office; and we aren’t even sure about the mail; because it’s November and it’s not been thought of…

To say I’m a bit nervous about what is to come with this opening is an understatement.

It’s Saturday night at 9pm and I’m lounging on the couch catching up on a weeks worth of DVR. How the years have changed. I know I have an extra hour tonight. I spent the day at the Iowa Seizure Smart Conference. It was nice. I had stepped away from the seizure community after I had been pressured a bit too much by them and couldn’t say no; and it was a good conference to attend. Sometimes I feel like I don’t need to go because I’m a boring patient who is 9 1/2 months seizure free. Then I realize I could be in a situation where I need their help for work, or medication issues some day. Or maybe if I have kiddos.

I have a few loads of laundry and some stuff to clean  up in the kitchen.  I’m trying to think of what I can make for lunch tomorrow. I really need to make some plans for meals and such. Tomorrow is going to be a planning day.

I cancelled Netflix for the month of November, and probably will keep it turned off through December. You know that $20 will save a lot, but it’s gas in my car.
