What a week! I'm so glad it's Friday I can't even describe how happy I am:) I worked a 13 hour day yesterday and I'm still tired, totally not used to pulling hours like that anymore. Now, on to the Leftovers...
*Conversation with Muffin today on the way home from school (He's 5).
Cade: "Is my brain inside my head?"Me: "Yes. Yes it is."Cade: "That's why I'm not a zombie?"Me: "Uh...yes."
*I met with a Child Psychologist today about Muffin. Just one more professional to tell me what they think about all his quirky characteristics. More questionnaires for the teachers to fill out, this time it's the GARS and ASDS. We will see where this goes, hopefully it puts my mind at ease. I'm a little anxious but he has come so far and made so much progress. Mostly, I just want to make sure he gets any and all services or extra help that he is entitled too. He will return with me in a couple of weeks to meet her.
*Today I weighed in at 150.8 lbs. Which will surely be destroyed after the weekend. Sigh. I refuse to give up my wine on the weekends.
*Glasses are working out well, I'm shocked at how easy it's been. Thank you Heather for telling my about the http://littlefoureyes.com/ it was so helpful as I navigated through this new hiccup.
*Followed up with the Audiologist this week. Hearing in Muffin's left ear is reduced. They think the tube is blocked. So.....back to the ENT at the end of the month and then back again to the Audiologist. Sometimes I wish there was a Big Box Style Doctors office where when they find something wrong with you they just send you to to the other side of the office to see the other specialist. All these appointments, driving, form filling-out, waiting, elevators...and on and on. Yuck. I hate the waiting...
*I'm starting to have Spring anxiety since I will have so many work/weekend conflicts. Trying to avoid thinking about it. People without kids or young kids seriously don't get how difficult it is to miss soccer games, soccer pictures, birthday parties, etc...
*Someone said to me this week when I was complaining about my commute that it was my choice to move to where I live (about an hours drive with traffic from home to work). I had to stop them right there. I moved to where I was so that I could afford a decent home to raise my kids in and send them to a great public school. We still could only afford a townhouse and I sacrifice hours of my life so that they can live the same style childhood that I did when I was a kid. The next time someone says that to me I will throttle them.
Please go show some love to this super smart and lovely mother of 3 and share your leftovers HERE!
