Today I am leaving for a conference in Iowa. I’ve never been to Iowa, so it will be a little exciting. I don’t know much about Iowa, except that no one else knows much about Iowa either. When people ask me where the conference is and I say “Iowa City,” they look at me with a slightly confused look on their face and reply, “what’s in Iowa City?”
I don’t know… all I know is that I got funding to go to this conference. Why they didn’t offer me funding to go to the conference in Hawaii in September, I don’t know. Either way, free trip, time off from my peds rotation, and a break from family life (even though I am still sitting on my couch and I already miss my kids).
It will be fun! (Expect for the fact that I don’t really get to “participate” in the hands o knot tying drills and laprascopic simulations because of my stupid wrist brace! Oh well… Silver Linings, right?
