It all falls down....

I have been unbelievably quiet.

Yep, this is pretty uncharacteristic of me.

I'm ready to write again. So lets recap, shall we?

In November of last year, when I was semi-consistently blogging I was working full time, working on a college degree online full time, struggling to get Bubba's ABA therapy set up (while not letting the change in my routine kill me), working with a psychologist for Poohbear, looking for a pychologist for Bean, and keeping a close eye on Monkey.

Not a lot going on there....

I had been warned several times by close friends that I wouldn't be able to keep that pace long. It turned out to be true. I failed both classes, my back and neck started hurting with really no explanation, my blood sugar shot up over 400, and my blood pressure refused to leave the dangerously high range. I've been out of work since January and its looking like I may lose my job.

On the kid front not much has changed. Bubba gets his ABA about 15 hours a week (10 hours less than ideal but the state cut the budget... gotta be happy for what we can get). He also has group therapy twice a week, speech once every other week, and consults with OT and nutrition. Monkey is now seeing early intervention for some concerns about his expressive and receptive communication so we have that once a week now also.

We no longer have a decent therapist for Poohbear... and we never did find someone willing to work with  Bean.  We had Bean evaluated by the school system and although they saw quite a few concerning behaviors they were unable to accept her for early entry. She starts kindergarten in the fall.

I took Monkey to the doctor this morning for his well baby visit and it turns out that he has 2 bad ear infections that I somehow missed. Dr and I discussed Bubba's violent tendencies and she is calling UMASS to see if they have any suggestions on how to handle a very violent two year old.  Monkey has a specialist appt tomorrow for his hypospadias (at 8:30.... in Worcester..... morning traffic is going to be so bad).

So no, not much going on.
