We are into the second class now and W has not walked in through the door. Did he actually stay for second period today? This is most certainly his 'trigger' for the semester, if we managed to take that first step through the door we might just make 2 classes at the school this time … Continue reading Celebrate!?!
This week W has started semester 2 in grade 11, not exactly as I had hoped. No surprise however! He has 12 Eng and 10 Science to make up for what he missed last year in his time as a recluse. His English class is first and so he has no trouble making it, well … Continue reading Sooo much going on ….
There is something that I discovered some years ago, it's something that for people like me is a very difficult task. Asking for help. You're out there, you know who you are, you think/feel that it's weak to ask for help, it will make you vulnerable or make you seem less than. Not capable ... … Continue reading Stronger
Well that was a complete waste of time! And once again I get to be talked down to and blamed ..... seriously! W's second appointment with his new doctor was yesterday. I had already had a very hard time convincing him to go but we needed to refill the scripts and well, I was still hopeful … Continue reading Strike two!
Three weeks in and it's been both the best and worst year in a while. *chuckle* Must be the INTJ and living in apparent contradictions bit! Oh well. Patience, time, acceptance and understanding are finally paying off. The youngest, W seems to be doing well. We are almost caught up with the school work which … Continue reading 2019, off to one h3ll of a start!
This isn't a topic that I enjoy writing about but I think it's important and it might even help someone else who is looking for information so here goes. I'll start by saying my mood is great! There is nothing really wrong in that respect, I very seldom have issues there. It's my body that … Continue reading More set backs
*** I started this in preparation for an interview by a student, I have since completed the interview and added quite a bit more but I thought since the first draft is here I might as well put it out there ... *** I've been asked if I would be willing to give an interview … Continue reading What can we do …..
Sometimes I look around at the world and I wonder. With the things that get posted and the pictures that people make public, I wonder how much of it really is 'for myself'? That's what people say, 'I'm doing it for me' .... but I wonder. If you take away the 'likes', the comments and … Continue reading Doing it for me?
I haven't written in a while, any where ....I haven't had much inspiration I suppose. Yesterday however the Bear and I had visitors. We don't often have visitors, we really are that 'quiet' in life and we like it that way. Anyhow.... The visit was a good reminder for me, a reminder to stop all … Continue reading A good reminder
It's a good thing i have a good sense of humour because my kids certainly test that theory often! My youngest is not as argumentative or ornery as the oldest was BUT when he decides he isn't going to do something, he doesn't! The last couple of weeks have been odd, ever since we changed … Continue reading just shake your head ….
