Aurgh!! Anyway

We have been back from vacation for less then two weeks and every single day I have had to go some place or do something. Today is the first day everyone else has been out of the house doing their own thing and then when I turn on the news at lunch time I see schools are closing early due to the weather as close as twenty- five miles away. They better stay put here!

We are still working on getting Lauren`s seizure issues under control. This involves a lot of medical appointments, phone calls, and documenting. It is going to take some time to get this right, but we will figure it out. We have an excellent team working on it.

Hanna has been bonkers lately. She is scheduled to have surgery in less then two weeks and she knows something is up. We will be going over the particulars many, many times with her. Finding ways to deal with her when she does not understand takes some creativity. In the mean time she is really trying the patience of all of us.

We have finally completed a full evaluation for Paul so I am preparing for a meeting to get things moving forward for him. I know everyone is not going to be on the same page here so I am getting prepared to be the crazy mom if I have to.

Someone (thanks Trevor) who was trying to be helpful, left the freezer door open so we had to have a cleaning party late the other night. We had lots of things that were usable but could not go back in the freezer so I have been cooking it all up.

My van was is an accident while we were gone (one PCA backed into the other on the ice) and the re-set switch for the wheelchair ramp was damaged so we have been putting it up and down by hand until we can get the part to fix it. This is a dirty, heavy, job to do by hand. The insurance paperwork is finally all done so now all I have to do is get an authorized person to repair the thing. I hope we do not have to take it to the cities to get it done. That would be just one more trip I do not need.

We have nothing on the schedule except to get grocries (we always need those) this weekend so I hope that I can get caught up on a few things here, even with the kids at home. It is going to be cold and windy so there is not going to be any chance that I can send them outside for very long.


  1. Praying for Lauren and Hannah. Sending Hugs for you.

  2. ugh - that's a lot of stuff happening all at once
