Whoo Hooo!!!!

Today was an exciting day!!! Jovanna and I got up really early this morning (getting up before 7am should be illegal!) and headed to our State Capitol for a Wraparound Initiative Hearing that is very important to children and families with children who have various special needs. My boss wanted me to testify but my journey raising Jovanna has been so painful for me that it still feels like such an open wound and I know for 100% certainty that all I would have done was cry my way through the testimony. The good news is that I didn't have to! The Ways and Means Committee passed the bill on to the House now. Yeah!

Then I get home and find two issues of the July/August edition of Memory Makers Magazine. I was wondering...why do I have two duplicate issues of this magazine and then all of a sudden it hit me...I have two layouts in this magazine!!!! I was so excited to flip through the magazine in search of my layouts. I gave one to Jose and I took one and we were having fun trying to see who could find them first! These two layouts are really important ones to me because they feature my kids and very special topics. You can find them on pages 67 and 69.

Then, to top off this great day...my realtor calls and tells me that the VA Re-inspection was today and... (she paused to build my suspence) "We are a go!!!!" She said the VA Inspector called immediately and said he was very pleased with the work we did and wanted to let us know right away so we can close as soon as possible. So, as long as there are no more unforeseen road blocks, we will be moving in about two weeks and I will once again be a home owner. This was a very, very good day. Lots of wonderful things happened today...a day to remember!
