I'm alive!

I know, I've been a really bad blogger again! Things have been super busy this week. I love saying that. It makes me feel that most of my weeks aren't super busy. heh.

Anyway, I had a bout of some sickness this week. I stayed in bed all day on Monday. I managed to watch plenty of Intervention and Hoarders - which somehow made me feel a little better about myself. Felt marginally better on Tuesday, but took it easy and did pretty much nothing. By Wednesday I actually got dressed and left the house for a while. But, it seemed to take too much out of me, so I went to bed early. And by Thursday, I was back to feeling like myself again. YAY!

It's now Friday and laundry day. Well, pretty much every other day is laundry day around here. But still...

Harlie has speech therapy today. And my goal for today is to write my goals for Harlie for her Eligibility Meeting on Tuesday. I'm super excited about that. I feel like we're waiting for our next phase to begin. And I can't wait! Plus, I have a lot of planning to do (with Harlie's schedule and therapies and such) and it's hard to make plans/appointments if I don't know what her days are going to be like. We've pretty much been on hold since the beginning of December, and I'm ready to move on!

We got the results from her Developmental Testing. It's actually not as bad as I thought it would be. She is developmentally delayed (no surprise there). But I'm okay with it. There were no tears here. I know why and I know she'll catch up - so don't worry about me. But, I'll get more into that in another post.

I just wanted to give you a quick update to let you know all is well here. I'm currently trying to get Harlie out of bed. She is worse than any teenager - guaranteed. I think I will have to video tape the process one day so you can see for yourself. I've already made several attempts and got no where. I will try one more time and if she doesn't get up "willingly" then I will just have to pick her up and put her in the tub. That should do the trick. I know the girl looks sweet and all, but she can be mean as a snake. Trust me!

More later!

Today I spent the whole day doing Ainsley stuff. Met with her teacher, wrote a long letter (ie. book) to her PT, called about equipment. Oh, our lives are so fun! And it's just sad when getting sick is fun because you finally get to sit down and watch TV with no guilt that you should be doing something else.

I'm glad it turned out that the testing wasn't as traumatic as expected. Seriously, Harlie is going to kick butt! And I'll be watching to see it happen!

Glad you're feeling better so you can get to that laundry! Ha, ha.
