So I'm 33 now. Doesn't feel much different than 32, lol. But for my birthday my stomach bug FINALLY quit! I'm so happy that I can hardly contain it! For dinner I got to have Chinese and had no problems. That's the first time I've been able to keep real food in in 2 weeks. 🙂
Yesterday was both relaxing and frustrating. The first half of the day was fairly smooth ~ I did some minor cleaning and chores and then took a nap. The second half didn't go so well. At least part of it anyhow. My husband and son started bickering in the car, and soon it turned into yelling and then my son SCREAMED at us! And I mean screamed! We immediately grounded him from watching TV for the night, which turned into a major meltdown. And Aaron had started the whole ridiculous mess by picking on Zach. I ended up yelling at him to go correct the situation with Zachary and deal with the mess he had made. I was fuming ~ I had to put MYSELF in time out for a little while just to calm down.
Part of the meltdown I think had to do with Zachary not liking his teacher (she yells a lot and he's very sensitive to loud noise ~ it makes him a nervous wreck) and the bullying that happened on the bus that afternoon. The kid actually grabbed Zach by the throat and threatened to punch him! This morning at the bus stop I went and talked to the bus driver frankly about the situation (yesterday there was a substitute) and she swore to me that it would be taken care of and would stop as of this morning. If it happens again this afternoon I will get the child's name from the bus driver and have a meeting with the school principal. This is not going to fly.
Today is going to be a long day for Zach and I. He goes for his final testing for Asperger's today, and its going to be at least an hour and a half long. He's going to be tired and cranky already from being at school most of the day, then I have to haul him 30 minutes up to the doctor's and have them do the testing, and then 30 minutes home. He won't have much free time today since we have homework to do every single day, and then its dinner time, shower, and get ready for bed. I'm hoping it goes better than expected. I think afterwards we'll drop by McDonald's on the way home and get 2 ice cream cones as a treat. 🙂
Well, that's all for now. I'm going to try to take a short nap before I have to leave to go pick him up. I hope everyone has a good Wednesday.
