This is a very busy week in our household.  First, the fountain is not fixed.  Sadly what I used to seal it did not seal.  This will obviously require a trip to Lowe's and I just don't have the time right now.

Yesterday John and I had the pleasure of sitting in the basement of our courthouse for over 2 hours  for our teen.  The way court works is they tell you what time to be there and then you get to sit and wait until your case is called.  We waited 2 hours for a 5 minute court session.  The case did get changed to TPR so we are moving on to the next phase.  After court the teen's adoption worker came by our house to start that process.  Which reminds me, she was supposed to call me today, hmmm.

Today I got to travel to the big city to take the two little ones to a visitation.  The dad came but the mom was a no-show.  She came one month which was just enough to confuse the kids terribly.  The dad asked to talk with me and I did.  He wanted to know how the girls were doing and I gave him a brief update.  He also thanked me for taking care of the girls and gave me too much information about biomom!  I also got to meet the girls new adoption worker and ask the SW about the TPR filing which was supposed to be done months ago.  The dad brought the girls books instead of candy which I really appreciated.  Those books will be around a lot longer then the candy would have been.

Actually I would have preferred to not have visitation today because Dimples has been on a bad run.  Ever since we had the therapy appointment she has been acting up.  I am not sure what it is.  My guess would be that she actually had a problem being in a small room with only me and having me in charge.  She deflected most of the time by concentrating on food which she never mentioned once we left the room.  Either way, we are back a few months in the behavior department.  I will be curious to see how this type of therapy goes.

Then I got to go see the doctor this afternoon.  I have been having headaches and am just so tired.  He thinks that I am having tension headaches from too much stress.  Ah, I don't think so.  I think that I have some type of virus.  That is what I get for seeing the male doctor instead of my usual female doctor.  On a good note my blood pressure was 114/70 so the headaches aren't from high blood pressure.  My mom had a stroke from high blood pressure and every other relative (dad, brothers, grandparents) have high blood pressure so I keep expecting to get it. 

Tomorrow I will be taking Anthony to the big city to see a psychologist.  Which reminds me that I need to gather some of his testings.  I will rush home from that to get him home and head to class. 

Thursday I have a meeting about student teaching.  I am losing focus on school and am struggling to do my class assignments.  I need to take two classes over the summer and really don't want to.  I need a break.  However, the classes aren't offered in the fall so I have no choice.  In the fall I will have only one class to take and certification tests to do.  Then in the spring I will do student teaching and be finished.  The next logical step would be to find a job.  Right now I worry about that.  At least by then Dimples will be going into 1st grade.

Well, I am off to bed to fall asleep with my book in hand.  Perhaps I will get a few pages read! 

Have a great evening.

  1. Is the teen excited about adoption possibilities or will she get "cold feet" if it looks like it's really happening? It'll be nice to be able to one day include them all in your pictures.
