Life is Still Happening

The school bus will start bringing little bit home earlier buying us more time for lunch. I am losing weight but not gaining muscle mass, I need to exercise more. I can do that, I'll start using my weights more regularly and taking walks. That will be easy enough. I am wondering if I can lose enough weight to get down to a size 10, my friends are all smaller than that but that'll make me happy. I need to get some muscles built up. Health is the first priority.

I am making some promises to me. They are small so I can keep them without worrying that I may be missing something. I need to lose some weight to make it down to a size 10 but I think that I'll start with a goal of losing twenty pounds in the next six months. That's safe and reasonable. I'll start with a goal of taking a walk twice a week around the property and using my weights three times a week. The rest of the exercises have to be worked up to. I will attempt to stop smoking once again, I may invest in another electronic cigarette kit though.

I think I want to fit into a bikini. The last time I was small enough my chest was too big but with the recent unexpected weight loss that might not be a problem for long.

The divorce filing fees were eaten by my computer purchase but I can earn them all over again. I have the papers and I still need to proof them. I also need a new tank for my well I have to get those numbers again.

I'm lost so I'm going to find myself. See you later.

Reducing Therapy!!!!!!!!!

It's been just over two years since little bits diagnosis was finalized. In December of 2009 we began a series of therapies, including Occupational Therapy. Now in two weeks since we have managed to go to every other week in the clinic we will eliminate that session. That means that little bit will get the therapy but only once a week in school instead of having two sessions with the clinic included. This summer we do not have to go to the sessions at all! All we have to do is reinforce what she has learned and make her do what she can. 


That eliminates a half hour from our therapy schedule! I'm so glad but at the same time it seems like it happened rather fast. Oh well, good news is good news! I'm going to work now so I can get a treat to celebrate when we complete our last session.

Day Out

Yesterday was my birthday so instead of worrying about the bills we went out. Little bit discovered Checkers and found that the french fries there are in her world superior. She ate the small order that came with her kids meal, some of her dad's and half of mine. When we got home from shopping (I spent too much but only got what I needed, and it was fun!) she was still asking for Checkers.


Later yesterday sometime in the evening the mechanic called. The car was ready, he had gotten to it just as he promised.$30 for the labor since we took the part to him and supplied the brake fluid. 


Yesterday morning she did math worksheets for me! Apparently that was my present. We are doing math for one of the therapist, I would be printing worksheets without a million things going on because confusing a child isn't how the skills they possess should be tested. 


Well, I have the pages I wanted printed and it's time to go check on  my work for the day. Until next time remember it's your child NOT theirs to make decisions for.

It is what it is and that's all there is.....

OK life is life and things happen whether you're prepared or not. I got paid for the project I did, an extra article will be paid on the next project. Nice. That's money that will come when I need it more.


We did rescheduling for speech. Now to figure out the ABA schedule and to figure out what the OT is doing when school starts in the fall. She already went to every other week with us. This is the last year of the preschool and next year we'll be in kindergarten all day long. 


Well, on the bright side I can work during the day. On the not so bright side I don't want her to go. I wanted her home with me until time to start school, but the Autism diagnosis made that day come two and a half years sooner. She went to preschool at 3. That's two years before she would have. 


I'm not sure what to do next but I have very little time to decide. I don't want her in the public school system, I can't work and home school. I can't afford private school.


Well, I'm off to think about these things. I'm not looking forward to these decisions.
