It’s almost time!

The past few weeks have been crazy! But good crazy! I have always enjoyed staying busy, I certainly didn’t have a problem with that these past two weeks! It was nice to rest this weekend, I got to PACK! 

Yup, its that time again! This time next week I’ll be on a transatlantic flight to Germany! I’m excited and hopeful that this trip to Italy will be amazing! I hope our students have an amazing experience and I pray that we all come back having had an amazing time. 

I’m looking forward to the culture, the country, the food, and the sites! Can’t wait to see what has changed :-)! 

So I packed and picked up last minute items! I’m praying my allergies get under control, and I pray that my body holds up and does good during the trip. I’m going to miss my kiddos! 

Raven has done a fabulous job adjusting to our home. She is such an adorable kitty! Check my Facebook page for some recent pictures :-). 

Hoping for a great week!

Crazy 2 weeks

It has been some insane two weeks! I’m crossing fingers that this week I’m not at the office as much as I have been! Not that I hate my job transitions, quite the opposite I love the changes! For those that know me, they know I love challenges and new things. It’s never a dull day and for that I am grateful! 

I added my Simponi last week (a week ago today)! I’m amazed that it IS working (mind you I’ve failed two other biological and countless DMARDS)! So yes yah for something that works. Not yay for the side effects! 😦 but hey if I had to choose…..I’ve made the choice that affords me the opportunities I want in my life.

We also added to our family! While we are still praying for a two legged baby, we added a four legged baby! We went to one of the local animal shelters and this adorable baby (3 months) kitty just touched my heart. As soon as I walked in she meowed and wanted me to give her attention. And while we didn’t have a long time (we got there right before closing) I knew she needed to spend no more nights in a kennel. She has enjoyed some yummy food, a clean litter box and a nice warm bed to sleep on. We picked her name, Raven! She is going to grow into one adorable kitty. Granted at the moment she isn’t sure about the clan she joined….but in a week or two she probably will be happier about being the youngest of five. And hey one day she might be best buds with Pepper and Precious and even Leia and Michael! 🙂
