Does that ever end (the chaos, I mean)? I don't think it does. It's my lot in life ("it's not a lot, but its my life" LOL, couldn't resist a bit of cartoon humor...name the movie if you can)!
Lately, it seems like my life is just spinning out of control! I've been doing ok with school (can't find a bunch of time for homework and such, but I'm managing, somehow). I just started my home-business with Partylite and have done 2 shows myself so far...and have escaped unscathed...well sort of. I was setting up for a "mock show" here at home so I could have Chris help me get to know the products. I set something down on the table, turned to grab another box to unpack and knocked the first thing off the table...of course it fell off and 1 piece shattered all over. I was sad, but am going to have it replaced soon. YAY! But, the parties themselves went off without a hitch...no hair catching on fire or any of that fun stuff.
Last week, we had some therapists come in a review Tyler. It's been decided that he needs speech therapy, and some occupational therapy, some behavior and sensory help and a bit of social and emotional help too. The plus side...no autism! It was mentioned a couple of times in the review, but since he makes good eye contact and does a few other things, they ruled that out, much to my relief. I'd love him either way, but this makes my job as Mommy a lot easier! I just received an email from ECBOCES (East Central Board of Cooperative Educational Services) saying that they've already found a therapist for Tyler! They told me last week that it could take up to a month to find one, so this news is GREAT! To start off, he needs 4 hours per month of therapies, which can be adjusted as myself and the therapist see fit. Such a relief to finally get the help that I've felt was needed for a while now...reguardless of what others might have said about it!
I just recently found out that one of my friends from high school is expecting (well, his wife is...but same thing) their first child! Pray for them...I'm hoping that all is still going well with that...they've had a slight scare recently. Also, Chris's brother and his wife just lost a baby. She was only half way through this pregnancy...I'm still unsure of the details. Our prayers are with them as well...especially everything that they must endure tomorrow and in the coming weeks of mourning. Please keep them in your prayers too.
As you can see, there's never a dull moment around here. We're all getting by just fine and the kids love school time. Celeste is now standing on her own, but is still afraid to take those first steps by herself. Tyler is still growing. We finally scrimped up enough money to go shoe shopping for the kids, and Tyler is wearing size 11! James is only wearing size 12 because we know he'll hit a growth spurt sometime during this school year...go figure!
Anywho, I need to get to bed! I'm wimping out...it's only 9:30 here (not even that...sad)!
