Sorry I've been amonst the missing - it's been crazy around here. 1. difficult child 1 is in the psychiatric hospital. They're ratcheting him up on Seroquel (thanks to everyone in the General Forum). They said it was the perfect match. The kids are on a 1 to 4 "level" system (1 for trouble - 4 a lady or gentleman) and difficult child 1 has been a 4 since he went in a week ago monday. He's getting depressed because he really doesn't understand why he's still in there, but I think I covered it when I told him "listen, we don't EVER want to have to do this again, so let's get it right the first time ok?". 2. husband is still texting that b-word that almost destroyed our marriage 4 years ago. She's newly married and "happy" so he doesn't understand why it's an issue. He won't go to counseling or marriage counseling (it works for some people and not others). Well, I went and got myself a therapist and have decided that my goal is to figure out why I'm willing to settle for being 2nd best on all aspects of my life. 3. AH (aka husband) has put huge privacy blocks on his facebook (I can't see his friends any more) and she (the text buddy) has blocked me from her page and her husbands. The only person who knew I was looking at the husbands page was AH's mother - so I guess she's not as "on my side" as I thought. We've been butting heads because she's causing major problems with the way she relates to difficult child 1. 4. difficult child 3 is commuting on a broom. I have to go see difficult child 1 every day at 2:00, the psychiatric hospital is about an hour away - damnit if that phone doesn't ring RIGHT when I have to leave to get on the road. Meltdowns every day since he went into the hospital. 5. Evie was working on 5 count 'em FIVE molars with a head cold. 6. difficult child 2 had bronchitis for a week. 7. My diabetes is over the top. But you all know me...I don't complain! So how are all of you doing? Miss you all! Beth PS: Star! Where the heck are you?
