Special Olympics Games!

I know it's been a looooong time since my last update, and I know some of you believe I left the planet for good. All I can say is, please forgive me. I've been busy-busy-busy! I never thought I'd say this, but I'm really enjoying my job(s) I'm finally building some sort of identity for myself again. I've been lost for almost 10 years. Really. Lost. Do any of you ladies out there know what I'm talking about? Ahhh, I'm sure you all do. After Stephen got older and in school, I found myself just waiting for him to come home to have something to do. Then, this year was his healthiest year so far and he was in school a lot of the time. Sure, I could scrub my floors with a toothbrush and organize closets every single day and have a spotless house. But where's the fun in that? And not get paid for it? Tuh! I think not! I'm really going to miss working (for money) when it's time for summer vacation. (vacation? Hah!)

So on to more important news ... The YGP album says it all! Stephen and I both stayed home most all week with allergies. :( But on the day of Special Olympics, we checked him in, let him have some fun, and then checked him out again. (hee,hee,hee) We had a blast! We were only there for 2 hours. Got a little sun burned, won a couple of ribbons, bounced in the space jump, went to McDonald's and then back home. How much better can it get?

Next week, good Lord willing, we will go to the zoo. I'll post photos of that as well. Or, at least that is my goal.

Enjoy the photos. Stephen says hello and sends many hugs to all of his aol-j friends!
