I have been busy the last couple days.  Going to therapists, Dr. appts and shopping.  I got Sarah a nice fake fur vest she wanted for Christmas.  Reminded me of the rabbit fur jacket that was so popular when I was a kid.  Don't feel bad, I am glad no rabbits suffered for me!  I also got myself a couple of holiday tops!  $10 ea from Walmart.  I filled out my FAFSA and TAP for grants.  I had to send away for another school transcript, they wanted one unsealed.  If I get accepted, then I have to register for classes, do my immunization titre, etc. etc.  Hoping to start in January.  Sarah had some testing done in school and she registered high in a few areas of concern.  Inattention, Learning problems, Agression, Peer relations Negative Mood, Interpersonal problems, ineffectiveness, negative self esteem and something called anhedonia   That is pretty scary.  I guess anything over 70 is of concern.  She scored high on the ADHD scales and the depression scales too.  I am glad she is in counseling and I saw her Dr. today and we are increasing the ADHD meds to see if it helps.  Karl is going to be seeing a therapist that specializes in areas of Spectrum disorders (autism).  I suspected that myself.   He has been cut off the games all together on weekdays and is limited to two hours a day on weekends.  Not for punishment but because he is so highly addicted and shows the autism symptoms more while playing.  Wow, I am just full of joyful news huh?  We have decided not to go to Florida and are taking them to the Great Escape indoor water park for two days.  In February, Rich and I are going to Atlantic City to hang out at the Tropicana!  I want to see the boardwalk too!  I decided I could not handle a car trip with those savages!  Maybe we can try next year.


  1. Good luck to everyone on their Doc's visits. If they help them things will be more pleasant for you. That in itself will help you. Good luck on whatever you decide to do about your vacations. I hope you do good going to school. Helen

  2. Wow, your kids sound like mine in many ways. It keeps life interesting, that is for sure. Nice to have good medical support--it has made all the difference for us. Had to follow your link on Anhedonia--didn't know anything about that before now. Good luck with the kids and in life.
