This has been the worst week we have had in a long time. Still, we are trying to enjoy the good moments and not get sunk by the difficult ones.
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the National ADA Symposium. The annual conference brings people working in the disability field together to learn from and network with each other. I really enjoyed the conference. I hope I get to go again next year. I came back from the conference energized and excited to use what I have learned.
There’s one thing to report today. Yesterday, I got back the results on the biopsy taken of the cyst that was in my eye. It was benign! I don’t have cancer!
The biggest news in my life is that I’m recovering from eye surgery.
Obviously, it has been too long since I posted. I have a lot to say.
After my last personal update, I thought I would share news about Emma and Mr. Rogers.
This isn’t a happy personal update; in fact, it’s the saddest one I have written. Animals are wonderful friends. Watching them get old is so hard though.
A year ago today was my first day working for the city of Portland, Oregon. It’s hard to believe it has been a year. In some ways, it has flown by. In other ways, it has seemed slow. Sitting here a year later, I can honestly say it has been a wonderful year!
I recapped my year in review. This post is looking ahead for me in 2019. I will preview the following topics:
- My job
- Exercise and health
- Continued Learning
- This website
- The house
I’m a little late with this, but it’s time to recap my 2018. On the whole, 2018 was a great year for me. I left 2018 feeling as good about the future as I can remember.
This year in review will have two main sections:
- Things that Didn’t go as Planned
