Work and Visiting

Where has the time gone? Looks like my last post was on May 11 - Mother's Day. I love looking at the digital picture frame that Lily and Dadda got for me. It's a lot of fun.

Work wise, things have been going okay. I went to my New Inspector Training and learned A LOT!!! Holy Cow Batman!! I did get confused at times because it was a lot of information and only 2.5 days, but I think I managed to retain most of it.

Since Lily still hasn't slept without me yet, she brought her Dadda up to stay with me in the hotel for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. They left Thursday morning. It was nice to share my lovely hotel room. I even took Mike out for a special dinner Wednesday night at P.F. Chengs. He'd been wanting to go forever and there just happened to be one 5 minutes from the hotel.

Let's see, what else, what else. Hmmm, more interesting work news I suppose. Within the last two weeks I got to do an inspection all by myself, did some more solid waste surveys, got an angry phone call from one of my solid waste folks that consisted of being told to stay out of the neighboring towns and got to attend an awesome conference. The conference that I went to was actually yesterday and today. One of the reasons that it was approved is that it was over in a local town, so no hotel costs. It was a Farm to Table conference put on by the universities around here. There were presentations from producers, regulatory agents and everyone in between. Man, it was totally awesome! I learned som much and got to meet so many interesting people! I even got a few compliments for a comment I made during the panel discussion. :D

Last bit of work news is that tomorrow is our director's last day. He's hilarious and extremely helpful. It will be sad to see him go.

In non work news we have Lily. Over the last 2 weeks, Lily has gained two new skills. The first is the ability to cry and make her parents feel like poop when we drop her off at daycare. The other is the ability to army crawl. She has been able to scoot backwards and roll around to get wherever she wants to go for a while, but just recently she realized that she can push off with her toes and get even more mobility.

Man are we exhausted! This child is definitely one that we get to chase after. She always has to be going going going!

The last bit of news is that this past weekend we got to visit Lily's maternal Grandma at the park she is staying at. We got to visit the gorgeous park and got to see a Drive In! That was awesome! As always, it was hard to leave my mom, but it had to be done. We have every intention of going back later this summer.

crawling! as far as I remember my little one never wanted to crawl, she was intended to leave sitting for walking without crawling in the midst. People, what I need to say is - make notes! make notes of everything your child is doing... as I've suddenly realized I remember almost NOTHING of my daughter being an infant. And she is only 5 now...
