One major paper completed, many more due in the next few weeks. My semester is coming to an end and I will get a break for Christmas.
Social worker visit went well. It was supposed to be a visit from the kids mom but she was a no show. It was very interesting to watch the kids react. Lily would have little defiant moments and I would correct her. She would be looking at me out of the side of her eyes to see how I would react. I reacted like a mom, I hope that was what she was looking for.
Dimples, well, in true non-attachment form was a little angel. None of her whining or tempers. She did get caught lying. I think that it is hard to stop lying when that is all you know to do. She also is currently on the couch downstairs. That night she was caught in Larissa's bed for the last time. I am tired of either locking Larissa's door or having Larissa sleep in our bedroom. There are reasons why Dimples can not be in Larissa's bedroom, trust me on this. So, we are doing a big bedroom shuffle. We are setting up the FROG for Anthony and Dimples will go into Anthony's bedroom. Of course, this is having to happen while I am studying for finals and writing my papers and preparing for Thanksgiving.
I have to do some changes in the FROG because the laundry room is at the far end. I need to build some type of partition. Anthony wants me to paint his room. I think we are going to do an underwater scene.....well, I will paint it and Anthony will tell me what he wants. He wonders why it isn't finished yet. Geez, I haven't started yet! Furniture will be moved by this weekend though because the foster kid can't stay on the couch. Anthony is excited for the move.
Jason's birthday is Friday and I haven't gotten him a gift yet. It is followed with Sarah and then Tasha's birthdays. November is a busy time for birthdays. You can probably guess where I will be today....shopping.
Have a great day.
