Just hoping the year ends on a good note

It’s almost December and at this point I’m just hoping that the year ends on a good note. So far these last few months have been a disaster. I have had everything that could go wrong go wrong. We’ve had a rough year almost filing for divorce. We’re putting it off but there is still a chance that we could file eventually. Although finances could put that off indefinitely.

At this vary moment I would be wondering where my husband is since it’s 8:33a.m. and we have to leave at 9a.m. to make it to therapy in time. Fortunately he’s here and he even put the car seat in his car. We’re working out the details of therapy transportation for Monday and Tuesday of next week, this should be interesting.

Well, we made it to ABA which is not going to be from 3p.m. until 5p.m. on Thursdays so that we can start our weekends at 10 a.m. on Friday instead of at 1p.m. I made one boo-boo, I forgot that school doesn’t let out for Theresa until Tuesday since she’s not in school that day anyway and they don’t go on Wednesday.

I’m still figuring out how to get my brakes. Some woman I had never seen before bought my cat food this afternoon because my payment didn’t go on my card when it was supposed to. I’m thankful it went on today that $5 helped, a little sooner would have been nice although I am very thankful for that lady.

Well, that’s all the rambling thoughts I have for today so I’ll go away now.http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=workinga-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1843108607&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr

Common Sense Please Stand Up

I posted an article on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico yesterday that appears to be doing rather well. It’s been viewed over 900 times since yesterday morning. At least I know someone is reading what I write.

We did a two hour ABA session yesterday. I watched this time. I’m still wondering at what point therapists will ask to find out what kids can do and are allowed to do. I never imagined I’ve have to tell someone that my THREE Year old is NOT allowed to go down slides head first or backward. I have a kid with no sense of danger, I’d prefer not to teach her to break a bone. She did sorting yesterday too.

I’ve given a lot since she began therapy and allowed her to have things with the therapists that she’d never be allowed to have at home because they’re too small for her age. She put tiny marble looking things into different color cups yesterday and they worked on imitation. The child knows how to imitate I prefer she not perform on command like a trained seal. No she’s never seen a giraffe or any other jungle creature so she got the name of the animal on the card wrong. I know common sense went out the window with her diagnosis but there are some areas that it’s rather useful.

After all the goal is make the child self sufficient and ensure that she has manners. I’m going to have to go over the goals that the therapist set for the child. There are some things MY children aren’t allowed to do and I’m fixing to scream as loudly as I can if someone doesn’t start asking if she’s allowed to have or do certain things.

On the bright side she’s smarter than most of the people I deal with everyday.
