This year got off to such a great start with work, coming in strong for 2018, an update on our comp plans as well as an exciting new Presidents Club for next year (Grand Cayman), and of course winning the Difference Makers award that will allow me to go to Ecuador this August. February continued on that and we had a couple of great things happen in the recent weeks.
First off, we were able to clear a pathway to adopt Liam, thankfully his birth father was willing to relinquish his parental rights which will give us the ability to adopt him. I think this was an amazing thing for his father to do and the judge (and of course we) felt it was the right thing to do. Liam is so excited for this and it will give him full stability to be a part of this family and not ever wondering. He has been absolutely amazing lately and behaving so well, and also treating his sister very well. He is a dream child and I am so thankful he became a part of our family.
Next, work has been great and the new comp plans are amazing and they have also lit a fire under me to do well at work and keep pushing hard. Last week was my best week ever at 269 days, previously it was 254 from 2015. I worry that some of those dates will come off, that seems to happen when you book that far out but I’ll just enjoy it and run with it. The new comp plans will allow me to save more money, which is great because I am certain that we are heading for a recession. This has been a 10 year bull market and this year will be spent preparing for that. I plan on putting lots of money aside and having dry powder for the next down turn.
I’ve volunteered twice now at the Sharing Place and tomorrow will be my third time, it’s good to get to know some of the kids and spend time with them. It makes me realize how lucky I am to have time with my children and I will always make the most of it. Angie has gotten a pass to the West Jordan Aquatic Center and gives her a lot of activities to do with the kids.
