It's Preschool for Heaven's Sake...............

So why is the application so long? Why do they need so many proofs? Can't you get by with the information you already have on file for the program they're in and just update it? I have all my proofs except for an SSI determination letter which is filed away somewhere unknown. I'm hoping to find it before we leave for speech so that I can drop all the forms off today and we can leave to go to the store from there.

I've decided that we'll  be searching for a summer program for Theresa that's half days a couple days a week so that she doesn't get out of the habit of getting up. She likes to get out of the house and since I'll have to take her we can get some things done while we're out.

I'd love it if I could finish cutting my grass but it's starting to look as if the gas left in the lawnmower is going to have to be taken out and put in the car. I bought a tire yesterday because we didn't have a choice. I don't like it when those things happen but they do and we deal with them.

Theresa is still amazed at the little school bus I bought her the other day. We have to do some words today so I'm going to find the sight word list and write them on her board.

That's about it since I have two other blogs and a website to update at some point today.

it's just not the same

OK so I decided to take today off and not go to therapy with Theresa. Instead I sent her daddy and it just wasn't the same. First Theresa made me feel guilty that I wasn't going by coming to my desk, taking my hands and saying "come on, let's go bye-bye" and she wasn't done with the guilt trip yet. When I went to lock the door behind them she opened the door so that I could come outside with them. I had to walk her to the car and strap her in the car seat. Now keep in mind her daddy was teasing me because he was ready to go without running around disoriented trying to find things at the last'll be funny in a few minutes.

While they were gone I cut some more grass with an easy walk mower. I didn't get a lot of grass cut compared to the size of the yard but I'm proud that some of the wild flowers that were making my sinuses act up are gone, and in the morning provided the ground is dry enough I'll be cutting more. I came inside, washed up and mixed the muffin mix. While the oven preheated I got everything together for my bath. I went back put the muffins in the pan and set the timer for twenty minutes. I managed to take a bath and get dressed before the buzzer went off! Good timing.

At a little before 3:30 I began to worry about speech and the fact I hadn't went. Well, I was coming out of the back when they got home and I was asking about Theresa's day when I suddenly realized she didn't have any pants on. When I asked why her daddy told me it was because there weren't any in her bag. Ha! Ha! Just proves that nothing is done the same if mommy doesn't do it.

No Conference for Me

Recently I received a full scholarship to go to a two day Autism conference that would have given me at least a week's worth of articles to write. I was rather excited although a bit nervous about going and managing to stay away all day since it was at the end of the week. Well, less than a week after my scholarship was accepted I had to inform them that I would be unable to attend. I have a three foot problem, that's too young to watch herself while I go. I'm not even sure why I took the scholarship to begin with, I knew that I couldn't go in the back of my mind. There is no one close enough to watch her and I can't afford to take her out of town just to go to the conference.

Spring Break is coming up and she has therapy so we can't do anything that week. It's not that I can afford to go anywhere but I would like to be able to if I wanted to. OK before I turn this into a rant I'm going to be going.
