It's been a busy week here at Conn!

On Wednesday, the snow fell pretty rapidly in the afternoon, so we got a visit from Owen, my co-worker's baby because their daycare closed. He's gotten so much bigger than the last time I saw him! He's super cute....sigh....I love babies. Anyway, because there was going to be icy ridiculousness later, I canceled my chiro appointment and fretted about whether or not I was going to go home between the end of work and my 3 meetings that night. I ended up going and driving back over before my info session. The info session went well...it seems like there's a lot of interest in the HF/FG/ILC positions this year, which is super exciting! I'm really looking forward to having a big candidate pool this year. Next week I'll be doing more online advertising to pick up those people who couldn't come to info sessions. I'm going to ask Amy to do an all-campus email on Monday for the last info session. Anyway, after the info session, I headed over to Cro to wait for the V-Day meetings to start.

V-Day....not Valentine's Day....V-Day: The Vagina Monologues. We have two amazing producers this year and students who are so thrilled to be a part of the group and doing this work. There were over 50 people at the info session! Shani and I have some incredible ideas for V-Week and so do my WC coordinators. I love that I have the opportunity to do this work in addition to the work I do in Res Life.

I ended up staying up ridiculously late in hopes that there would be a snow day on Thursday, which there was, so I slept in on Thursday and finished up some stuff around the house before heading over to campus for the Centennial Tea. It was really successful and there were lots of students there. I then headed back to the office to drop off my computer, then went to dinner with my WC Coordinators. They're so excited for this semester and I am, of course, excited to work with them. We have V-Week coming up, and National Feminist Coming-Out Day in conjunction with International Women's Day and Take Back the Night and all the other little programs they want to do. We had our staff meeting at 8 and then I finally got to go home to my hubby.

Friday was busy, but very accomplished. I got a lot done in the morning (except for the stupid evals) and met with Shani about V-Week and ran to Target over lunch to pick up snacks for the retreat. I was dying for Pizza Hut, but knew I needed to make better choices, so I grabbed a pre-made salad, carrots and pita chips and hummus at the snack bar instead. The retreat was good and productive. Productive conversation and productive planning. I'm enjoying making connections with professors as well. Mab is really passionate about seeing the center succeed and I'm so grateful for that. I went back to the office and cleared out my email before heading to the chiropractor.

I've been in a lot of pain the past few days, which is annoying, but not something we could easily figure out yesterday. She gave me some new core exercises to do  and when I weighed in, was down 3.5 pounds from my weigh-in on Monday! I was so excited and now I really feel like I'm on the right track. I'm thinking about going to the pool tomorrow and swimming some laps. I haven't swam laps in forever, but it's supposed to be less stress on my hips, so I'm going to try it. I'm also doing a food journal for this weekend and I realized I ate A LOT last night....Matt got ambitious and made me a 3 course meal. I also ate a cup and a half of spaghetti squash. Who saw that coming, right?

Ok, I'm going to read for awhile and wait for Jeanette to pick up the on-call phone on her way back. And not watch Knocked Up for the 30th time.
