Special Needs Blog Hop, I’m there!

Today as I was hoping around bloggyworld I came across a Special Needs Blog Hop and I was so happy to meet up with these amazing moms and read their stories. The special needs community is a very unique community and it is special to have the support of each other. I recently began featuring other special needs “sista’s” on my site and look forward to meeting many more that I can share with.

The idea behind this hop, which was created by Tammy From Autism Learning Felt and Stacie from Super Mommy To The Rescue, was with hopes to bring the Special Needs Community closer together. Provide awareness and support to each other. Thanks to both of them!

This weeks Theme: What are 5 goals you have for the New Year?

1. I do not really believe in New Years resolutions so I’m just going to call these goals…. First and foremost I would like to continue on my Wellness Makeover that I began last March, I have been on a little hiatus and really need to get back to the gym and keep moving on, it really is a marathon and not a sprint.

2. I would like to become a little more “relaxed” this year… I’m working on it…

3. I would very much like to make it to Italy this year! I have a big birthday coming up this year and I have wanted to go to Italy for sometime and I am hoping that 2011 will be the year to make that happen.

4. I am on the brink of starting a new “business” and really would like to get that together this year.

5. As a little personal goal, I am going to try and make it to allll of my doctor’s this year! I spend so much time on everyone else’s needs I’m going to try and put my medical needs on top this year… Hello Mr. Root Canal! Uhhh

Love to have you join in!

Duck, Duck, Goose, I’m it…
