Adding on something new....

For those who have known me for some time, you know that I have always had a passion for working with children and adults with special needs.  It has taken me some time (over ten years, if you think about it) but this is really THE time!  I am so lucky to get to work with many amazing kids and adults in the summer, and I am now working with the same city and their Special Olympics program.  I am one happy gal! :)  A lot of it will be office work, organization, etc (which, again, if you know me you know I LOVE this!!) and then the other portion of time will be spent at practices and such :)

Well, well, well...

The past two weeks have been full of weird emotions.  Sadness for two important families in my life who have recently lost a loved one; happiness for the new little life of Logan Lombardi; disappointment my Packers didn't make it into the Superbowl; a level of appreciativeness (is that even a word??) towards all the amazing memories I have of all my loved ones; and finally utter heartbreak at the thought of not making enough memories of my own with my family.  I don't want any regrets, ever, when it comes to those I love.  So from now on, I am going to change that.  Daily phone calls with my dad (already do this with my mom!!), no excuses not to go over and visit them both for a bit.  Mandatory time with my sister and nieces; time with my brother and Marley!  And last, but not least, getting my butt over to see Amanda and that new little man she brought home this week! :) 

(Yes, Amanda, I stole this pic from your blog...don't be mad :)  )
