This morning Alexis had an appointment for her initial evaluation for testing through her psychiatrist’s office. They will be evaluating her IQ, her personality, and her mental status. The actual appointment was a nightmare. While I was trying to have a discussion with the therapist about what was going on Brandon had an accident and I had to leave the room to change him. Jordan fell twice and skinned her knee bad enough to bleed. Have I mentioned how very much I am LOVING Easter break? If I don’t get some peace and quiet soon my ears may very well be permanently damaged!
Alexis’ actual testing isn’t scheduled until June because their testing schedule is so full. It’s okay with me though because the testing takes a total of six hours so she would be missing a ton of school. I’m planning on doing a lot of tutoring with her over the Summer to keep her up to speed and maybe even get her ahead a bit. I hate that she struggles so much with her school work.
She will have a lot of time to practice over the Summer because she quit gymnastics. After six years of year ‘round gymnastics Alexis decided she doesn’t want to do it anymore because she has a slight physical deformity that prevents her arms and knees from going straight. It’s nothing serious, but in gymnastics where form is so important, she’ll always be criticized. She kept telling me that the teachers are picking on her telling her to “get those arms straight” when she can’t. So we let her quit after making her participate in the last session that we paid for. We’re looking into getting her to play softball.
I’m still working on getting Brandon set up for speech therapy. They keep giving me the run around on what paperwork I need. Then insurance needs a referral… it never ends. At least we are on the way to getting him some help. He would be going to the same therapy office that Jordan goes to on Thursdays. The office coordinator took pity on me and said that she would try to set him up at the same time that Jordan goes so I only have to make one trip a week. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it actually happens that way.
Jordan was in such a bad mood today! She picked fights with Brandon and Alexis all day long. Before she went to bed she even tried picking a fight with me. I think she’s so cranky and tired because her leg muscles still haven’t caught up with the growth spurt she had. I got a phone call from the orthopedic place today saying that her new leg braces are in. Getting her back into wearing them is going to be an adventure to say the very least. Wish me luck on that. Not that I blame her, I’m sure they are uncomfortable. I don’t even like wearing shoes on my feet if I don’t have to.
After we got home from the doctor’s office I puttered around and cleaned house. It seems like there’s always something to do! I finished cleaning the carpet in my bedroom. It was the last room I had to do so I am officially finished with that project! Next, I need to work on more Spring cleaning. Does anyone want to come help me wash woodwork and walls? I’m super glad that my Mom loaned me her carpet cleaner because the floors look a lot cleaner now. It makes my little OCD heart happy!
I also finished a scrapbook page but you won’t get to see that until tomorrow! It’s scheduled to post automatically first thing in the morning.
***Since it’s Wednesday it’s time for a journaling/blogging question. You can post your reply on your blog and link back or just answer the question in my comments. Whatever makes you happy!
What are your favorite TV shows right now?
The first one is Glee of course! No self respecting Gleek could ever say otherwise. Plus, as a former actual choir geek… I’m in love with this show! I think we had slightly less drama in our high school though.
True Blood. Sigh. I have read every single one of the Sookie Stackhouse books and the series almost lives up to the books. That’s saying something since I never think that! I can’t wait until the new season comes on this Summer. Waiting sucks!
Last but not least there’s Bones. I just can’t help it. Even though the romantic story line between Booth and Bones drives me insane, I’m still drawn to it. Plus, I’ve been a David Boreanaz fan since Buffy! (I totally shouldn’t be admitting that!)
