Chris is thriving at his new job. I am so proud of him for working so hard the last few years to land his, "dream job!" We are both so blessed to have careers that we love.
In other Slowik news, the countdown is on!! Chris and I are going to MAUI in a month! I am so excited I can hardly stand it, although we will miss our sweet Norah. She will be staying with her grandparents and we will be enjoying some just us time. Much needed :)

Working …in Labor & Delivery full time now! ( I was floating between L&D and Post Partum) I am loving almost every second. I am so blessed to have a job that I love.
Thinking … about far too many things. My brain is constantly on overdrive.
Anticipating … far too many things as well. I feel like we are at a crossroad in our lives right now, right on the edge of lots of changes. Good changes, but big ones. Trusting God that everything will fall into place, because it always does :)
Reading … just finished Sophie Kinsella's new novel, I've Got Your Number. It was cute, but very predictable. Trying to decide what to read next.
Listening … some Zee Avi and lots of Phil Wickham, DMB and more radio than usual lately. I am craving something new!
Eating … well! Thanks to Pinterest I am constantly inspired to cook!
Wishing … that I didn't have to ever sleep. Working night shift is great because I am gone while everyone is asleep. The bummer is I have to sleep while everyone else is awake and living life. It's frustrating!! I don't want to miss a second of our sweet life.

WHERE: Vera Katz Eastbak Esplanade (SE Main at SE Water)
WHEN: Sunday, May 22, 2011
START TIME: 1PM
WHY DO I PARTICIPATE?
My brother, Brent Slowik, had a mental illness called Paranoid Schizophrenia - "one of several types of schizophrenia, a chronic mental illness in which reality is interpreted abnormally. The classic features of paranoid schizophrenia are having beliefs that have no basis in reality and hearing things that aren't real."
Unfortunately in my brother's case this disease took his life by suicide. I walk every year in his memory and to help others like Brent.
I would like to ask you to come and walk with me and/or to donate to support my participation in this great event. Please visit the team page for Brent's Buddies and sign up:http://www.nami.org/namiwalks11/NOR/brentsbuddies. Donating online is fast and secure, and I'll get immediate notification via e-mail of your donation.
WHAT IS NAMI?
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the largest education, support and advocacy organization that serves the needs of all whose lives are touched by these illnesses. This includes persons with mental illness, their families, friends, employers, the law enforcement community and policy makers. The NAMI organization is composed of approximately 1100 local affiliates, 50 state offices and a national office.
The goals of the NAMIWalks program are: to fight the stigma that surrounds mental illness, to build awareness of the fact that the mental health system in this country needs to be improved, and to raise funds for NAMI so that they can continue their mission.
