I’m home

October 20th, 2009

After a jam-packed weekend in Denver at FNCE (Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo), I am now home.

I talked politics with Jeff, spent way too much money on food, attended interesting lectures, got scads of free junk, and even drove the van for a while.

I did NOT jump out of an airplane, talk to a homeless person, drink alcohol, or complain to a waiter (as others in my group did).

I graded papers, collected CPEUs (Continuing Professional Education Units), schmoozed with UNL alums, saw some of my internship preceptors, watched the unfortunate football game, and slept on Dr. K’s floor.

I attended a great session on mindful eating (more on a B3-RD post later), and an almost worthless session on blogging (it was created for someone who had little to no awareness of social media). I learned about nutrition for kids with Asperger’s and about the development of the American Dietetic Association’s Evidence Analysis Library. I cleared up a question about high fructose corn syrup (look forward to this one on a B3-RD post) and collected an awful lot of simply thick (I’ll probably post about this too–even though it’s unlikely to be useful for you personally.)

All in all, it was a good conference. I enjoyed the intellectual stimulation, the company, the food, the room, the drive (except maybe the drive back). But now I’m pretty much pooped.

Thankful Thursday: FNCE details

October 15th, 2009

Today I’m thankful…

  • that I have a ride to FNCE (and that I’m not the one doing the driving!)
  • that I have a roommate at FNCE (even if I’ve never met her before.)
  • that I can get CPE (Continuing Professional Education) for attending FNCE (thanks to my newly attained registered status.)
  • that I didn’t end up having on responsibilities at church this week (how often does that happen?)

And, apart from FNCE? I’m thankful…

  • that I woke up just in time for Journal Club this morning–despite forgetting to set both my alarms.
  • that it isn’t quite so cold today
  • that the dishes are all done (Thanks for finishing up, Casandra!)
  • that I currently have no fines on my library card.
  • that I’m starting to have a little more time to do things.
  • that God is faithful!
