Gee, did someone ask for a change ?

I know, it has been awhile.

I have news:

Not great news.

Three things have transpired to affect my day.

First, my son was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome. He is considered high functioning but it has made an impact on his life - not in the positive.
Other than that, I have NO idea what that means.
What I DO know, is that it will take us on a different journey into understanding our child.

I called the school. Found out his special teacher has been fired.

Then a call was placed to his therapist and found out he's on medical leave until early 2008!
No idea why or who is taking over the case load.

It's just been a dandy day.

Last night...well, Brandy and Marianne got to hear all about that.

I was torquing my body from washing machine to dryer with a load of towels. Just as I dragged the final towel from the washer, it caught on the spout of the opened laundry detergent, and you guess it, knocked it right off the dryer and onto the floor.

Bam! Whoosh!

An upswell of soapy, slimey liquid covered one entire leg, my shoe, the freshly cleaned towels, the dryer, the floor, the other innocent laundry baskets ... basically everywhere except the ceiling and wall.

I had to RE-wash the entire load, extra rinse for all that extra soap I mopped up and had to wait until it dryed to put in the other load that I needed to do, which was supposed to have been the LAST load.

Then! Then! at 11PM, I found out that the Towels didn't dry all the way!!!!
Another 30 minutes waiting!
At Midnight, I finally was able to put my poor head to bed.

It should have been 10PM...NOT 12AM.

Now I have to wonder..was that the start of some bad karma or what?

So, now you have an update .... And I most certainly wish I had something funnier to talk about , but this is a major emotional roller coaster...and I'm just getting on the ride.

I'm sorry C.C., what a load you've had today.

Reminds me of the time that I dropped an entire (open) bottle of vegetable oil on the kitchen floor. Can't mop that up.

I hope that your Wednesday will be better.

That is weird that both your son's special teacher and therapist will no longer be around to help with your son.

Sorry about the laundry mess and staying up till midnight to get it all done again.

I hope today was a better one for you.

Brandy said...

I hope you were able to find someone that will be able to help you and your son soon. I know you must be going through a difficult time and I just want you to know I am here to "listen" whenever you need me. I'll be saying prayers for you and yours.

Be cool. It all smooths out sometime.

Oh no! Not Veggie Oil! That's almost impossible to clean!
How did you ever manage?
My Wed comprised my advocate finally getting ahold of me and me realizing I need to grow a pair of cojones to get through this.
THanks for the support, Bailey!


Hi Dru. Thank you. Give the "The laundry mess" a month or so and I'll laugh. It wasn't funny while it was still dripping down my leg. LOL!
As for the teacher, the school has yet to hire a replacement and we still don't know about the therapist.
There's just a little TOO much unknown at this point.
Ever hear, "Just when you think you have all the answers, they change all the questions"?
Well, it's true. **shakes head**
So glad to see you, Dru!


Thanks Brandy. I think there'll be some days your IM is gonna burn up with my chatting.
So glad your there for me, THanks!

Hello and Welcome, Wayne!
Your words are appreciated. Thank you SO much for taking the time to leave a comment.
That is incredibly caring of you. And you don't even know me.
I hope your words come true real fast though.

Writing is fabulous therapy, Michele, and you do it so well. Keep doing it.

Michele said...

**grin**, WAYNE!
I love to write! How did you know?
Thank you for a comment that was quite uplifting and brought a smile to my face.
And as for the advice about "Keep doing it.", well, that goes both ways.
You keep it up too!
Writers need to stick together, right?
