So far today I have been to the bank (it was closed), took B for a haircut(had to take C along too), got B new snow boots (and a little chocolate for mama), played in the snow (well, I stood out there and watched) loaded the dishwasher, and now I am finally sitting down to start my homework for class on Monday. (ok, I got sidetracked here)
It has been a hard week for me. I did not get as much done as I would have liked. Amanda did not get as much schoolwork done as I would have liked (at this rate, she'll be going until July). Things are not going as planned in the daycare/I need some income area and I hurt my knee using the Wii. oh. yeah. and it snowed and turned really cold.
On the bright side, and yes, there is always a bright side. I found some new curriculum I want to try and I think Amanda will like it too. My sister came to visit for a few days and took Amanda off my hands one afternoon so I got some alone time while the other two were at school. I also got my laptop back from the PC Dr. after they rid me of all the virus and everything was still there on the hard drive (yippee)
I also got a foster care call this week. My agency is back on rotation! Their transition is almost complete and they can start placing again. the call was for one of two boys. One was 4 and had some pretty severe behavior problems the other was 8 and is a specialized placement. I said no. I just don't think that either would be a good fit and I have never had a specialized placement before. At least I am still on their radar. I thanked her for calling and told her to keep calling and I would decide on a case by case basis. I also asked about the three from a month ago and she said that she has checked and was told DCFS hasn't completed the investigation. I cannot tell you how mad this makes me and I can only pray that those children are safe until DCFS gets around to checking up on them!!!!!
I am confident the next week will be better (the power of positive thinking)
