A couple highlights from my hiatus :D

Yes, I was on a bit of a hiatus for the last 5 or 6 weeks. But I wanted to blog, I REALLY did. I just couldn't find the time in between basketball tournaments, triathlon events, finding good restaurants, plunging off the highest building in Las Vegas, and all the other tedious little duties that try to even out the perks of my job while traveling. Coming back to work after being gone for 4 weeks is THE equalizer for me in this job... I hate, no, I loathe voicemail. It's the worst. And coming back to a full mailbox with over an hour's worth of messages makes me want to hit delete knowing that if it's important they'll call back cry. Not to mention the 643 emails to sort through... Ok, so you get the gist. I've been busy at work, which is no big deal (I don't BLOG at work anyway), that's life and you take the good with the bad. And in this case, the bad is not really THAT bad. I'm just whining... so the REAL reason I have not blogged since I got back a week ago is two-fold:

1. My sleep schedule got incredibly jacked up while I was on my trip and that has effected my nights, which is normally when I blog.

2. It's nice to be home and around family (so the blog took the back burner).

A lot has happened between the time I left for my work trip and now. It's a bit overwhelming to think about recapping everything. To be honest, I probably couldn't remember it all if I tried. But I'll give you the highlights:


I got into CCU's Master of Arts Counseling Program, which means I'm moving out to Colorado this August! Which ALSO means that I am resigning my position with All Army Sports to go back to school. WHAT?! I know. It sounds crazy, maybe even stupid to some, but this has been in the works for longer than I was ever aware (until this past year), and it has been marvelously exciting to watch the pieces in this puzzle start to take form in a much bigger picture. There's lots to do before I pack my things up (again) and travel West, but I'm not going to let myself get wrapped around the daunting task of moving. Because when all is said and done, I will be in Colorado, and my friends and family will not. I'm making spending time with the people I love here on the East Coast a priority and am enjoying this transitional period, rather than dreading all the little stresses it may bring.

I'M AN AUNTIE (again)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of you probably already know, but the very last couple days of my trip were filled with excitement and anticipation because with every day that passed, it meant I was that much closer to cuddling my new little niece, Whitney Kristin Campbell! And you guys, she is SO cute. Her little face is so perfect, and she coo's and growns when she sleeps. It's hard to believe that not even two years ago Matthew was born AND two years prior to that, Amy and David hardly new each other... I am so thankful that they have adopted me into their little family as resident third parent. I can't lie, it's going to be a bitter sweet good bye this coming August. What am I gonna do with out my little buddy?? I can always count on him to make me laugh, smile and to fill my love tank past the brim. *sigh

(to be continued).....
