Count Down Until School Starts

Today means 19 days of summer vacation left for the kid. I'm not ready for it to end, none of it went the way I had planned it but somehow it worked out. We didn't get a vacation, unless you count the fact that we didn't have Occupational Therapy over the summer because we needed a break. We knew that we'd be getting a new ABA therapist, we just weren't sure when. I didn't want to risk learning two new therapists at once.

I did not want to do too much therapy this summer that was forced. Instead we worked on taking turns, reading directions and auditory processing. She has done some writing, tracing actually and writing on her chalkboard. Now we are getting into a new routine on Tuesday mornings that involves getting up early, getting dressed, making sure the car is ready to go and making an 8a.m. therapy appointment. We would also be checking each week until school starts to find out if there has been a speech cancellation within an hour of our ABA appointment ending.

I am pleased with her progress over what will soon (in another month) be three years since we began this journey known as Autism. In the meantime Theresa continues to use PBS Kids to learn, ABC mouse we may or may not keep because of the costs. Yes we are cutting expenses anyway we can right now.

That is a post for Working and Saving. (I'm working on doing what I intended to do in the first place, family on the Writing, Kids and Life......random thoughts here and money issues on Working and Saving. Who knows one day I may abandon all three and attempt to start over but for the moment different blogs instead of one with lots of pages helps a bit.

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Achiements and Goals

The last year I managed to meet my biggest goal, one that was long overdue and obsessively planned. I moved home from Arkansas and left the stupidity surrounding me behind. Now I am focusing on the next set of goals, and finding that I no longer no where anything is in relation to the objective that I am searching to achieve. Things change in four years but not that much.
There are still animals in my orbit, or rather animals have returned to my orbit since they aren't ours. We get visits from the cat that lives downstairs, who promptly makes himself at home each and every time. Theresa worries about how well he is cared for while he is in our new home visiting.

There were a lot of goals set during the last year and looking back the largest of them was achieved; now it's time to move onto the next set of goals and reevaluation of the ones that weren't achieved to determine if they are worth continuing toward or if they require altering. Planning for them was obsessive, an…
