Winter Storm and Therap

The snow continues to fall across the region today as schools, business, churches, and countless other activities are brought to a halt.  Here in KC it looks like it will be a couple of days before things get back to normal as many will scramble to clear roads, drives, and sidewalks.  It is in these times that I am reminded once again of the value of Therap as people are able to stay up to date and current with what is taking place across an agency by simply logging into the system.  I hope you all stay safe today and take advantage of logging in and catching up on whatever needs to be addressed.

Snowfall in KC brings thing to a halt.

Winter has Finally Arrived!

It has been an fairly uneventful winter here in Chicago. We really had not seen too much snow until this past week, when it seemed to snow a little bit each day. Now that there are a few inches on the ground, it finally feels like winter. I was happy to leave the 15 degrees of Chicago this week and head to St. Louis and Southern Illinois for a couple of days. When I arrived in St. Louis, it was 56 degrees! I head back to Chicagoland in the morning. I hope those in the path of the forecasted big storm enjoy that winter has arrived!

Michelle :)

Here is a glimpse of the start of the snow from earlier this week.

My New Hometown!

Hello all, from the Chicago suburb of Des Plaines! I have only lived here for a few months and decided to do a little research to learn more about my new hometown. Here are some fun facts I discovered:

The majority of the hit 1985 film, “The Breakfast Club” was filmed at the now-defunct Maine North High School located in unincorporated Des Plaines. If you don’t know this movie, don’t tell me. It means I am getting OLD!

Des Plaines is traversed by two interstate highways – I-90 Northwest Tollway and I-294 Tri-State Tollway. My house is also just a few miles from O’Hare international airport, the second busiest airport in the world, with 2,400 flights per day.

Des Plaines is made up of the following nationalities: German (21.5%), Polish (18.2%), Irish (13.8%), Italian (10.6%), English (5.2%), Swedish (3.3%). We also have some pretty awesome grocery stores that cater to the needs of each nationality. It is an awesome experience and you can find anything you are looking for.

The McDonald’s #1 Store Museum, also known as the McDonald’s USA First Store Museum, is housed in a replica of the former McDonald’srestaurant in Des Plaines, Illinois opened by Ray Kroc in April 1955. The company usually refers to this as The Original McDonald’s, although it is not the first McDonald’s restaurant, but the ninth.

This awesome burger joint, Paradise Pup, is just around the corner from me. It was featured in “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on the Food Network. Click here if you want to watch the video on You Tube.

NAQ Conference in Chicago

The NAQ (National Association of QDDPs) conference has been a great opportunity to network with some experts in the DD field. There are close to 500 people attending this conference from all over the United States. The conference is being held at the Embassy Suites in downtown Chicago. I have had the pleasure to catch up with many agencies that use and LOVE Therap. I have also been able to explore the paperless world with other agencies. It has been a great time. If you are not familiar with NAQ, read more here:

Listening to one of the awesome keynote speakers!

Downtime in the Big City

Hello Therap Midwest! After spending some time with Jeff in the St. Louis/Southern Illinois area, I returned to spend this week in Chicago. I visited with John Kincinas from Garden Center and got to interact with many wonderful people who receive services.
Even though Chicago is a massive city, I was able to find a place for a little downtime. It was a quiet, pleasant walk.

A cool stroll through the woods!

Illinois Beach State Park is a pretty nice place too! There is a beautiful beach area, camping, a resort and plenty of biking and hiking trails.

a great view!

Michelle :)
