The next day, Tuesday, February 3, started out with my monthly meeting with Provost McMath.  It was a brief meeting.  We just had a little bit of business to visit about, but it’s always good to touch base with your boss and let him know what’s going on.  It’s been a pleasure reporting to Provost McMath.  I guess the most important point of the meeting was I needed to get my IDEA (Individual Development and Educational Assessment) survey done.  It’s an electronic survey sent to the faculty and staff that allows them to rate our administrative team here at the law school.

Later that afternoon I had a brief meeting with Prof. Elizabeth Young.  It’s always good to see her and to catch up with what’s going on.  As you may remember, she is a new faculty member who joined us and has brought our Immigration Clinic on line.  She had some fabulous ideas for programs and outreach.  It’s great to have her aboard.  She is being recognized by the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal as one of the “Fast 15.” Way to go, Elizabeth!  We are all very proud of you!

Later that day in my continuing quest to regrow my hair, I ventured up to Rogers.  But before I did that I went by the house because through Facebook I learned from those of you on Mt. Sequoyah that the power might be back on.  So after my meeting, I zoomed back out to the house and flipped the main circuit breaker and indeed the power came on!  And of course, you know what the first thing I did was, go in and turn the thermostat up so that when I came back my house would be warm.  After that I raced to Rogers so I wouldn’t be late for my hair appointment where Lora takes very good care of me.  It is growing back and I’m very grateful to her for that.  I missed a Women of Distinction meeting, but everything got scrambled coming back and facing down the ice storm.  I still did not have telephone or cable, but you know what?  It didn’t matter because the house was warm.  That was very important.  Ironically, Tuesday was to be my last day home that week for a little while because I was to head to Little Rock the next day.  It was nice to come back to a toasty house on Tuesday evening.
