Hi Strangers!

      Sorry I haven't been writing much lately. I know how anxious I get when the blogs I stalk don't update frequently (I mean gesh they have lives beyond updating their blogs?!). I have been trying to catch up/get ahead at work. Which at times seems impossible, especially with all the IFSP meetings I have been having lately. For those of you who don't know what an IFSP is it is a document that outlines a child's information, how they qualified for services, and goals and services that are planned to address those delays/areas of concern. While they are not "hard" they just take a lot of time & require a lot of accompanying paperwork. I always feel a slight twinge of guilt for parents as I explain/review information and ask them to repeatedly sign their name. One mom made me feel a bit better by letting me know it was not as bad as the paperwork involved with buying a house (sorry real estate agents, at least I'm not the worst). Anyways these require a lot of busy work after the fact and gets old when you've recently done one for more than half of your caseload (in the last few months). On to more exciting news.... the reason I am trying to catch up/get ahead. Katy (my sister) is coming to stay with us for a bit this summer. I want to be caught up and just doing things as I go so we can spend time doing more fun things when I get home from work... for some reason I don't think she'd enjoy watching me write summary visits.
      This trip should provide plenty of blog worthy stories too. Poor Jim. He has lived with women before; Jim grew up living with just his mom and older sister and we have lived together for about a year and a half.  Jim is great at tolerating my girly movies/shows and has no problem following my whims when it comes to everything from food to what we do on our days off together (if you hadn't noticed I have been choosing the beach a lot lately). So you would think the addition of another girl would be no big deal.... Yea um about that. While Katy and I are sisters, share the same parents, and lived in the same house for 10 years we are VERY different. Jim has been living with the more conservative, subdued of the Paul girls. I'll keep you updated on his education!
   Also now that the wedding photos are in it is time for wedding recaps! Can't wait to show off our amazing pictures and tell you all about our wedding and a few events leading up to it!
