If we were having coffee I would take a big say and tell you how excited I am to be done with classes for a couple of weeks, I completed my final exam for the semester on Tuesday and if I was feeling well at that time, I probably would have done the happy dance once I clicked that lovely submit button.
Alas, I was not feeling well as earlier in the day I was sent home from work with strep throat and double ear infections. yep, the sickness bug has hit our house big time and we are all finally recovering. Thanks to lots of antibiotics and hundreds of dollars later.
I would tell you the oldest has been taking her new medication and her counseling sessions have gone well. It has been a couple of months since we found out she has OCD and just a little over a month since we found out about her MTHFR genetic mutation. The medication she is taking has helped give her more energy and she for the most part seems to be doing well. I would also tell you that I have noticed some of her OCD tendencies increase and am not sure if it is a true increase or I am just more attune to her behaviors now. The other day at MCdonalds she had to push every chair in that was puled out. This is something I will mention to her counselor just in case.
l would tell you that I am going away for a work conference in a couple of days and although I am excited I am a little nervous to leave the kids. I will only be away for one night, but I have never been away from them like this before. The husband will take excellent care of them as he always does, but there is something about me being eight hours away that just sits heavy in my heart. I will then smile and tell you that the idea of getting a good nights rest sounds very appealing, so I am still excited even with my nervousness.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I read a book just because I wanted to today. It’s not something I get to do often these days as most of my reading comes from text books, but today I read the night road by Kristen Hannah, and look forward to reading more. I plan to take full advantage of my few weeks off from school and reading is at the top of my list.
If we were having coffee I would ask you to tell me what was happening in your life and say let’s stay awhile. until the next coffee date……
