Obsessed with OUAT

I seem to be obsessed with "Once Upon a Time" and I have no idea why. It's addictive, all it took was watching the shows that I had missed from the beginning during the marathon that was shown. I was hooked. Fairy tales have never been my thing but the fact that these had lost the happy endings was somewhat of a hook for me. I can't explain it but I adore the fact that no one is where they are supposed to be according to the stories that we were read as children.

It is like "happily ever after" met a dose of reality. I still want them to get those endings but I like the fact that there are obstacles in the way. Last Sunday's episode was one I particularly enjoyed.

The fact that the Oscars are on instead of QUAT would be a bit of a sore point right now. I need a fairy tale even if it's just for a moment. I guess I'll dream of them. Maybe.......

I'm tired and the fact that we've reduced one therapy to every other week is a blessing to me. It's a blessing to my lack of work time too. In fact that every other week therapy session will be eliminated soon. Only one session to go. 

When school starts we will likely eliminate ABA whether we want to or not. The time slot isn't going to work with a full day of school to allow the kid to socialize. We should keep four days of speec…

What Am I Doing?

I have no idea. I'm almost done with the current project and by the time it is done I'll have learned four new formats. This client is easy to work with so I think I can stay with her for a while, that is if she has consistent work available. This project is supposed to end on Tuesday. There are still three articles to do that I don't have the subjects for just yet but should have them shortly.
In the meantime I'm continuing to clean house. There are some cleaners that I need to use up. I'm not sure why I bought them, they aren't what I prefer at all. I mean the smell the comes from this makes me a bit sick to my stomach, gives me a headache and dizziness. Hint to those of you that make dish detergent, laundry supplies and the various other cleaners you attempt to program us that we need have way too much perfume in them. If I wanted everything to smell like perfume I'd buy a bottle of my choice and use it on them.
On the bright side spray bottle tops will …
