This is my couch, I have not sat on it to relax until now... 10:07. I'm exhausted!
Last week I kept thinking it would be a horrid week. I had a million little landmines that spelled DISASTER (like my nanny needing a day off and the early intervention review for Callum) but nothing ended up being a disaster... it was a very pleasent week filled with many sweet surprises. Even our trip went better than expected!
This week has been crazy already. When we drove back from Pheonix early yesterday morning and we haven't stopped yet. When we dropped Harm off at pre-k yesterday I got a call from the teacher saying he was sick to his tummy.... than Chris got it this morning... late this afternoon I started feeling quesy. Today things I never saw coming came up. The hardest one being a recomendation for Rachel to be re-evaluated yet again. So now in addition to the ECEP and the Carrie Tingley we will have another evaluation, this time by a local specialist.
There was a lively debate in a chat room that brought back memories of some of the hard times Chris and I have had as a family, as well as some of the struggles I've had on my own. It made me think that right now despite the challenges we are really lucky and really blessed. It also made me think that new challenges will arise, but that is life. What has gotten me through challenges in the past has been the support of others and keeping a strong faith. Today what inspires me is seeing friends and family I care for struggle (w/special needs children, lost jobs, lost love ones, etc.) yet keep a sunny disposition. I guess my lesson for me is that instead of worrying about a future I can't change; I need to strive to just stay positive, do what is right, and help others along my way (rather than being judgmental which is a trap I see myself fall into often).
But for now, nothing really bad is going on... it was just a bad day... hopefully tomorrow will be better! I can't forger the good things like Harmon having a great day in pre-k! But it is 10: 27 (since I started this post I've had Harmon need me) right now and I'm not feeling well so I need to get to bed (not email, check message boards, etc.)... before a little person comes a waking me.
