Friday Fragments

Just another quick check in!  Yesterday I spent some time with the new/old therapist Valerie.  She wanted to do an intake and get caught up on what was going on with Jakes and I.  I took a recent picture of him with me and she couldn't get over how much he has grown up.  Its been a coupla years since we have been to see her.  So I brought her up to speed on some of the stuff that has driven us to therapy and everything.  She gave me a technique to try with him.  I did try it this morning.  I only yelled once.  And when I caught myself yelling, I stepped away for a break.  And reminded myself of what I am supposed to be trying.  And I tried it again.  It worked.  I should get a gold star, right? 

Not only does he get positive reinforcement for his better behaviors, I should as well.  And I will reward myself.  I have to take care of me too.

I sent more information to Jakes father about the ADHD diagnosis this morning.  I also asked him for a compromise on using the meds.  I asked him to allow a trial of a month on the meds to see if there is any improvement.  If he agrees, I can start the meds quickly.  If he doesn't agree, I will have to file with the courts and I don't really want to do it that way.

Neicy and I went shopping yesterday.  GAP was having a 30% off sale.  I got 2 new tops and I love them!  They make me feel pretty!

TD Bank sucks.  They are charging for coin counting if you don't have an account with them.  This just started 11-1.  Cheapskates!  Now I have to figure out where I can get my coins counted, for FREE.

Kimber has finally decided on her Bridesmaids dresses.  They are beautiful and will look good on everyone.  Not me.  I have told her that I don't want to be in her wedding.  I am going to be her honorary matron of honor.  I'm there for her.  And she knows it.  So, I am going to Kimber's again this weekend.  She is having a party for her wedding party to meet each other.  Its going to be fun!  And Jaxon will get to play with her dogs again.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. it absolutely frosts my behind that any bank can charge you anything for anything. IT IS OUR MONEY, HONEY!
