I went away for two weeks and it was pretty quiet. (That isn't a pity statement. Just an observation. Maybe blogging has run its course).
I'll just pick up where I left off.....
Friday the 14th took Olivia's class cupcakes for her birthday. Didn't even remember to get a photo. Late afternoon I got Elijah to the doctor because he couldn't lift his arm without major pain.
That's a normal shoulder. Gave him a bunch a steroids and sent him on his way. Something about stressed tendons.
Later that night Elijah was written up for a tobacco violation while at the high school hockey game. Who knows? I wasn't there. He says he wasn't chewing. Another parent and friend was sitting next to him (and who talked to him) said he wasn't. The VP said he was. The Principal wouldn't even talk to the adult witness. It's always something. I cried and cried. He was suspended from basketball. This girl helped me clean house until 1:00am so I wouldn't be alone. She always makes me feel better.
Got up early Sunday the 16th to drive Elijah to basketball practice as the suspension didn't take effect until Monday. It was -30* below. The coach kicked him out because he was late. Apparently he changed the printed schedule and told the boys, but Elijah didn't remember. The coach has been at his IEP meetings. He knows he has a head injury. I've personally met with him and requested that he call, text or email me when there are any scheduling changes because Elijah will not remember. He didn't and my son got into trouble. So not right to be punished for having a head injury. Drove early in the morning in the cold for absolutely nothing. Story of our life.
A couple hours later we had a birthday party for Olivia. Not even sure how I pulled it off. I was exhausted.
We had a basketball shooting tournament. Olivia won.
We had an air hockey tournament. Olivia won.
We playing pin the bone in the hair of the Monster High skull. Olivia got second. (Note someone actually "pinned" to Jadyn's head).
My nieces Michelle and Tisha.
Our Not fancy Monster High cake.
Singing Happy Birthday. (My nephew Jorge in the background).
A very happy girl to have friends over just for her.
Monday the 17th I sent the kids off on the bus and went back to sleep until almost 1:00. Stress does that to me. Pretty much a waste of a day.
Tuesday the 18th I went and watched Olivia's class at lunch. Then I ran and got Emily for her orthodontist appointment that took 1.5 hours. Then I picked up Elijah for a meeting regarding some educational changes for him. Then I gathered our things and we were off to a Cub Scout Swimming/Pizza Party. (My days are exhausting. I'm not 25 anymore).
Well, there's five days. Did you miss me? Tomorrow I'll catch up and then I'll have to think. I love comments, I love sharing my family, I love reading other blogs, but it seems as if maybe things are winding down for many of us.
