End of the week came early!

Well, it’s Thursday night and we’re done with therapy for the week! The speech therapist has to go for CEU’s tomorrow. That half hour is the only appointment we would have had so instead we’re going to the grocery store in the morning to stock up through the weekend. It’ll be the first of next week before we go to the grocery store for the month.

Theresa felt better today, still not a hundred percent but she was hyper and talkative. She had a tummy issue today that seems to have fixed itself. That’s a good thing. She was happy as could be with her chocolate goldfish, cheeseburger and french fries. Now she’s in bed without an argument since she’s was tired.

At the moment I’m watching the “Dukes of Hazzard” since my regular shows at this time aren’t coming on this week. I just realized that I have never seen the one where Coy and Vance come to Hazzard county. Oh, well.

I’ve got to do some dishes, one more blog posting and find a few things to make copies of in the morning. I also have to make a phone call to get a copy of the letter where child support was in arrears. OK time to go to work.

Jumping on the furniture

This morning Theresa was so hyper that she was standing on top of her little Clifford table and jumping off of it to the couch. It didn’t help that she was excited about her cartoons. Every time they did something she tried to do it too. She’s something else I’m telling you. She had a stubborn moment before we left therapy and tried to stay in the office grabbing whatever she wanted.

I didn’t get any work done today but she did make an awful lot of request for her shows by name. We had a $5 pepperoni pizza from Little Caesars for supper. Theresa knew what it was and said “ummmmmmmm pizza” which for her is incredible in the expressive speech department. She did great during therapy though. They used connect four and she worked to get the checkers to put into it.

She wasn’t feeling well today. I think her little stomach hurt but she can’t express it. She can only pout and lay down quietly when she feels bad. That’s how we now. Tomorrow is a school day so she’ll act like she feels good even if she doesn’t. That’s the highlight of her day two days a week.

OK not much else to say so I’ll be going for now.

The kid is hyper today

Theresa was fine this morning as I fixed her breakfast and did two loads of laundry. I even managed to write a total of thirteen articles today while she watched cartoons. She loves it when she gets to watch her cartoons back to back and she actually tries to talk about them. She was a bit hyper today because of foods she’s not supposed to have that she got too much of but that would be my fault because I haven’t been to the grocery store.

I was so tired when she took her nap I took one or tried to it lasted less than an hour. We watched “Sixteen Candles” together when she got up from her nap. She was really into slapping when she got up. She thinks it’s funny when you say “ouch” so I think I really have to stop doing that but it’s kind of difficult when she hits you directly in the eye.

I’m proud that she actually got all of her supplements today. Well she got all of the ones that she has. She’s out of zinc and fish oil. I don’t have the empty fish oil bottle to remind me to order it so I forget a lot. I’m order the larger bottle next time so it actually last her all month and maybe a little into the next month. The 4oz bottle has 24 – 1tsp servings, she’s on 3/4th tsp once a day so it last a little bit longer than 24 days but not much. Or maybe I’m just not that good at measuring. I forgot to get the right needle to give her shot with so she’s stuck with the one I have until I can go get the 3ml. Good thing she doesn’t need the shot until Monday.

There is a store less than 10 minutes from me and I pass right by it every time because I forget that it’s there. I have to make some more laundry detergent soon, I may just do some laundry in the sink since I wear the same few shirts over and over. It doesn’t take as long to wash one item and I won’t have a lot to put away. I have to get Theresa more training pants and the plastic covers. She has training pants without the covers and I think that she may have two days of cloth training pants. Who’s bright idea was it to sell them in such small packages at such an outrageous price?

Well, I wanted to get a little bit more work in so I’m going to stop rambling now.

Hyperactive Child

These past few days have been rather interesting. Theresa has been rather hyper because of all the foods she got that she’s not supposed to have. She was rather aggressive last night slapping and kicking me in the face. That’s what I get for letting her have things that are definite no-nos. She missed her supplements actually several doses this week.

I still haven’t gotten them fixed this morning instead I’ve been doing dishes, laundry and other housekeeping that’s been neglected for a while. OK her supplements are fixed and her daddy’s giving them to her now. I have to figure out where in the house I’m going to hang my laundry since it may rain again today. It rained just long enough yesterday to annoy me. I’m hoping it doesn’t do it again today.

This afternoon if nothing goes wrong I plan to take Theresa to a birthday party and watch as she interacts with other kids. She’s being lazy today and refusing to make complete sentences so that’s what we’re pushing this weekend. OK time to get back to the world whether I want to or not, still got some things to do before we leave.
