Wow, so much school drama going on. I'm always amazed at how overwhelming school is for parents - so much to think about and try to work out!
Geo - Ugh. How frustrating. I would definitely make a list of those questions for the clinician Tuesday, and in the meantime, I would maybe just let the teacher know that you have been having testing due to issues x, y, z and are in the process of getting the report which you would like to talk to her/him about, and then maybe schedule a time when you and and s/he could go over it, and you could explain how DS' issues manifest (in ways that you see that the testers did not) and what you do. The school will probably write up an IEP from the test results, but it would be so helpful for her/him to know the details from you. I hope the conversation Tues. sorts some of this out for you
Bec - :a belated
. I too butt in as a way to show empathy, but have noticed it in myself over the years and now try to just shut up. I find that most people just want a chance to talk anyway. They dont want advice or to hear what happened to you, they just want a carved out piece of time to talk, so I try to be a better listener. But seriously, it would not surprise me AT ALL if someone said the same thing to me
Hard to hear but definitely opens your heart
Jo - Your ds has always been kind of a dreamy, sensitive kid hasnt he? Curious. Have you talked about it with him, as in, does he notice that he slows down when telling a story? Maybe he just needs the pauses to process it in his head before he puts it in his mouth?
Mel38 - So glad for you that you had a good week of exercise. Now you can carry that good feeling in to your bunker
RR: weight circuit. It sucked. I'm in a funk (for no reason, I suspect hormones
) I left 30 minutes before I usually finish. My hip flexor/groin was hurting
The whole thing was just BLEH. Im sad about the hip b/c its been a week, and Ive been babying it, which means I need to do more resting, and seriously, exercise keeps my mood from tanking. Sigh
NRR: On the house: the seller rejected all 3 offers, has decided to resubmit his case to the bank for loan mod. This process will take 3-4 weeks, and then if he doesnt get it, we can resubmit. It's fine. Ive settled into the process, so whatever happens. The waiting sucks though
