Do you ever feel as if everything is going crazy around you?? That’s how I felt this week! I left for San Antonio on Wednesday! We (three of us from my cohort) drove together and had a fun time getting to know each other a bit better than we are afforded during our six hours in class. We arrived there in good time and checked into the Menger Hotel (http://www.mengerhotel.com/). This hotel is very historic and located right next to the Alamo!
My cohort buddy and I immediately got ready to present and then went to find the room we would be using! I practiced a few times as did she…but I will say the waiting for the time to come….that was nerve wracking. I was doing fine until the time came..then my stomach hurt because I was soo nervous..it did not help that the room was filling up either! I think I counted some 20+ people in the audience! Goodness! But thankfully I was successful in presenting my study and I a few asked questions after the presentation was over.
The night was MUCH better after the presentation was OVER!! My cohort mates ended up on the Riverwalk getting some food and enjoying some fun times. We were up bright and early for a continental breakfast at 8a.m. the next morning (EWW!!!) and then it was conference presentations until noon! Then a lunch at the hotel and back to presentations until 5:00p.m. Then another night on the Riverwalk! Friday morning again I was up early for a leadership meeting, my peers elected me to be their representative to this organization, and then the cohort meet for one more conference presentation. We got on the road shortly before noon and I was home by 2:00p.m.
What a whirlwind of a week!! My body was soooo tired from the travel, then the presentation, and then working to keep up with the rest of my cohort! We had a lot of fun but I paid for it. Yesterday I was soooo tired, I just wanted to sleep!
This morning I woke up early again! My hubby was testing for his yellow belt so we had to be up and at KSW school by 9:30a.m.! He spent about 3 hours testing, and broke his first board in this martial arts form! Then we ran errands before I had to come home for a nap! Now I’m back into the homework…..
So yes I want to catch my breath….sit on an island and have a pina colada…LOL! RIGHT!! 😛
Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia don’t let me catch my breath! Homework doesn’t seem to let me catch my breath! BUT overall I’m still making strides so for that I am happy!! Fatigue seems never ending…but I’m fighting back! One step at a time..one breath at a time!
