And One More Thing to add…

Ava’s speech therapist quit on her.  We still have not found a house.  We have to be out of our current house by July 31.  We have to start the process to get her into an autism program in a good school district.  We’ve barely slept this week – Ava has been up at night from 1am to 6am two nights in a row.  At her team meeting last night, Ava’s lead coordinator told me I had to buy some things — she gave me a list and one of them was a tent.  Does she think we are made of money? 

I still have allergies, it’s been two weeks.  I am tired and feel out of shape and lethargic.  We never get to go anywhere or do anything.  I have no energy to cook or plan meals. My husband just wants to lay on the couch and watch baseball.  I don’t blame him, he’s tired.  So many people in our lives have demands on us, and we just do not have the energy to deliver.

I am looking forward to the long weekend.  We are not doing anything special, but at least the therapists won’t be invading our house and we do not have to be anywhere or do anything.

I would like one day to sleep late, read the New York Times in bed and drink coffee.  It ain’t happenin’.

Thanks for letting me vent.

    A switch to RDI got rid of the parade of therapists and the supply lists and took us to more meaningful progress without all the drama…
