Friday's Chaotic Updates

School begins Monday, the bus is going to run at 6:48a.m. That means I have to get the baby up by 5:45 so she can do her usual morning routine of deciding she wants breakfast, even though she'll eat once she gets to school.

There is of course the dreaded routine of trying to get her dressed and fix her hair without a meltdown ensuing. It takes about five minutes to put her in a uniform. Sunday evening I will put out the dress that she is going to wear, her shorts to wear under it, and get her new shoes on her.

Fixing her hair is the most stressful part of the regular routine. She can't stand having it done. I'm considering cutting her hair but I'm going to miss it, and she
loves to show it off. She's had it short before and it was adorable but I was stir crazy.

Although shorter is easier to manage, especially for a child with special needs.

Well, I have to work until the world ends, and I'm far behind on the posts here as well.
Next month, Christy Birmingham and her book Pathways to Illumination will be featured. I'm looking forward to that post.

Twenty Years of Lessons

The last twenty years have taught me things that I never learned in school. The lessons make me wonder what the big deal about finish this degree or that vocational program is. So what have I learned?

Starting Over. Again.

Life never goes the way we plan and that's okay. We just had a major change that I tried and tried to plan for only to have my plans fall apart every. single. time. It was when I stopped with the obsessive planning and pulling my hair out that it all came together. We're doing pretty good while we make the adjustment to home. Here's hoping that we'll be completely back on track soon.



Until next time, never listen to the voice that says you can't. Find the voice that says Fuck it I'm doing it.

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.
