part III the sequel....update on our dysfunctional little existance here in new york! I wanted to jump in and say hi to everyone! It's going to take a while to do catch up yet i had a few minutes tonight, difficult child is finishing up art project for school next to me and i wanted to say hi. I hope everyon'es well and difficult child's are umm managable. My difficult child is still going through alot of school refusal, i came up with-a few techniques to handle it in a.m. and get her going and out without physically dragging her or trying to. She's also experiencing some anxiety in school visiting nurse again, etc. Me, i need a hair cut i'm still sick and i'm not looking so good lol. easy child well what can I say that is easy child. I've learned some stuff and i've been bringing it home to use on easy child. Needless to say she isnt' too happy lol oh well. difficult child and I have been spending alot of time together. Every night it's all about her and easy child and me for the most part because i'm gone all day and a few nights i've gotten i late around 7. Yet i'm finding time to pass by inbetween appointments which is cool. I'm still trying to get a handle on my schedule. I still love the job more than Ive ever loved any job ever. I wake up and do not dread my day. I've never experienced that ever. I"m meeting amazing ppl, interesting ppl, challenging ppl and kids. Everyday is another adventure. Tomorrow I go for suicide prevention, how to talk someone down when their let's just say about to ya know. I have to say i'm utilizing every trauma i've ever experienced in my life for this job lol and it's working well. I have yet to walk into a home where i cannot understand what it is their going thru or what it is their experiencing. Pretty funny huh...? Anyway, difficult child loves her sitter. i'Tourette's Syndrome turned into being a good time for difficult child she handles her incredibly well. She's a Special Education aide so she's really experienced in dealing. so they do hw play games, really spend time difficult child's getting attention and i think it's helping with me not being here. ok so that's that. difficult child goes with-dad sat. a.m. and i'm getting my hair cut yea for the first time in 8 mos. yea me, and my eyebrows done. yes no utube videos thsi time. I got my first check today it was so exciting. I hope everyone's well. I miss everyone here!
