I fell asleep on the couch last night, woke up around 3:30am and for the most part have been awake since then. Don’t ask why because I have no idea. I’m not a late sleeper these days anyway but this is just rediculous. I’ll live, it’s a cloudy day anyway so I will soak up the rain when it comes later.
I’m waiting to go to church. I love my church and my church family. I am the leader of a small group for moms of special needs children. We meet twice a month and it’s nice. There’s no judgment, our kids are all different ages and these’s always information shared. With Thomas living in a group home I’m not always up on the latest news about services and Medicaid so I’m thankful to the women who attend and share new things they’ve learned. I’ve also learned a lot from the parents and parent coordinator at the school I work. Our parent coordinator, Zenaida is wonderful! She has a special needs son and she’s so real and is a straight shooter. I really like her. My small group is very small I try to recruit more moms to come but it’s not easy. Some don’t have child care or anyone who can look after the special needs son or daughter, some have scheduling conflicts, etc…
So tomorrow is back to work/reality. I’m ok with this. The time off has been great but it’s time to go back. I find I miss a lot of the people I work with. Most of those that I like and get along with really like their jobs the way I do so it’s great when you find that common ground. I’m friendly with one of Thomas’ former teachers. Her name is Cheryl. She was cleaning out her room and came across a picture from a trip she took; Thomas’ class to the local newspaper. There was Thomas front and center! It was really cool.
Time for church so I’m off! Enjoy your Sunday!
