Catching up

it's been awhile since I've updated.

The pluses?
Kelsey is still in autistic support at our preferred school site. Due to the excellent interventions of her mainstream teacher, has friends this year! Real friends, who pass her loving notes and pictures, include her in recess activities on the playground. She began guitar club, and is learning t play acoustic! Brandon, our youngest, has joined Kelsey at her school, but in mainstream classes. A "choice" necessitated by the intention of not letting our home school principal a second crack at discrimination one of our kids. We're thrilled with the result. He's thriving there!
In the last nine months, I've completed fourteen more college credits (working on six more this semester).

The minuses?
I stayed a week at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia with my son who needed emergency surgery (necrotic and gangrenous appendicitis), nursed a mother who fell and broke her wrist, dealt with impetigo (x3) with my youngest daughter who continues to come home infected from school.

My mother in law continues to wander deeper into Alzheimerville.

We refinanced our mortgage, bought a new van (the old one putzed out on us). Payments are a challenge.

We lost a dear friend, who left us far too soon, due to cerebral hemorrhage following a massive stroke.

Life is hard, but family is worth everything. When this semester is over, I am going to sleep for a week....before painting the house.

How are things with you?
