Life is chaotic right now. I spent half a day scheduling all manner of doctor appointments- pain management, endocrinologist, occupational therapy, etc.
Rachael was tested for ADHD. The test results weren’t totally conclusive. She’s basically on the cusp, but they want to rule out, (or in) fine motor control issues, masquerading as an attention deficit, before a final diagnosis is made.
Meanwhile, Zoë’s behavior has regressed at home and at preschool. I finally broke down and bought books on how to parent “spirited” children. Don’t you just the PC term for “They’ve lost their fucking minds!” Family therapy is also on the table. We need to figure out how discipline her with results and how to function better as a family unit.
Then there’s the kitchen. I’ve been wanting to give it a face lift for a long time. I won’t go into the sordid details; suffice it to say, Mike and I have been engaged in a war of attrition, alternating with detente. A peace accord has been signed, giving me the rights to paint our cabinets, and putting the ugly Formica countertops off for now.
So I’ll probably be absent for a little while, but I haven’t forgotten about all of you. Have this meme I created from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt until then.
