Tuesday Thoughts

SO much running around in my head the past couple of days.  No wonder with all that is going on in my life! 

I have five days to get everything ready for vacation.  I have to get the phone numbers of all the therapists together for my parents, notify the therapists and school that I won't be around, getting ME, JAKES and JAXON packed.  Also this week, I have choir practice and the therapist visit tonight.  A concert for the college graduation to sing in tomorrow night.  A therapy appointment for me and a Drs appoinment for Jakes on Thursday.  OH and I need to go shopping for some shorts that actually fit me! 

So, is anyone tired just reading all that?  I know I am.

The therapist is coming to the house for another 7 weeks (I think).  We are also supposed to get a behavior specialist who will work closely with Jakes on certain pieces of the goals Albert has designed for us.  I found out today that there are NO MALE mentors in our county.  And if we were to ask for one from another county, they are all booked up.  So for now, we will make due with a female mentor.  This will still give Jakes time with a different adult as well as give me some respite.  We'll see how it works out.

Yesterday was Jakes class trip and I went with him.  We went out of Cape May to look for whales.  Of course, it was cloudy, rainy, and foggy.  There were plenty of dolphins but no whales.  Jakes had a fabulous time though.  I miss the sun.......

I asked the case manager to set up a meeting between me, Albert and Jakes father for after I get home from vacation.  I have some things I want to say and I know Albert wants to talk with JF as well.  Maybe we can come to an agreement of sorts to work together to have the best for Jakes.

Kimber and I are going to get tattoos at the end of June.  They are going to be matching and SO PRETTY!  I can't wait!  We're going to make a weekend of it.  I'm going to go up to her house, she will a complete Spa Day for us as well as the tats!  Girl time for just US!  So much good stuff to look forward to!  Maybe we'll fit a little dancing in that weekend too!  We'll see!

I also want to get a tat of a polar bear and paw prints for each year I have swam in the ocean in the winter.  Soon for that one.......

So vacation!  In FIVE DAYS.  Its going to be relaxing and stress free!  I have plans of sitting around a pool with books and music and not thinking about this stuff here on the East Coast.  My friend that I'm visiting will have to work but hopefully we can do stuff in the evenings. Even if not, I won't mind!  I just want down time.  me time!

A couple of years ago, I made a cookbook for work.  I had lots of help from others on the project.  ESM decided to have a cookbook fund raiser for a club of hers.  And she voluteered me to make it for the club.  Because I have experience.  Ok.  So, I drafted Neicy to help with the typing of the recipes!  I will be working on putting that together while on vacation as well.   Just relaxing stuff.......

Ok, time to get some other stuff on my list completed!  Catch ya later!


  1. I am on the vaca countdown too!

    So much to do and since I am a MAJOR procrastinator, I never make it easy on myself.

    Good luck!

  2. Have got to see a photo of the Tat!!!

  3. nice...have fun on vacay! you will get it done...the bear paw tats would be way cool!

  4. I got a tattoo almost two years ago. Be prepared. It hurts like HELL-O. But it's so worth it. We should all wait till we are 30+ to get them I think.

    And vacation...Enjoy it. Don't think about anything for more than three seconds. Just enjoy. Everything will be right where you left it when you get home so take the time you need and deserve to say HELLO ME! I've missed you!

    Have a great vacation! I can't wait to hear all about it.


Leave me some seeds
