No Title

Okay so I am slacking on my posts here. I have been fighting with a headache or something for the last 4 days that just doesn't want to go away. I take my migrain medicine and get rid of it for a couple of hours but I can only take that 2 x a day and ibuprofen is not much help.

To make it worse I have had a terrible work week and am just fed up. I don't want to deal with it anymore. Yesterday I got a call from the school that Madison and Joshua were not at school but Kenzie was which obviously had me concerned because they leave for the bus when I go to work so I don't see them get on but there are several other kids at the stop. I called and asked my dad who I knew would be around if he could go by the house to see if they were there. Fortunatly they were otherwise I would really be in a panic. Maddie was sitting on the porch by then eating her sandwich and Joshua was playing. They had gone back to get something but the house was locked and even though the bus driver saw them and Kenzie told her they were comming she said they were late and she wasn't going to wait. That really irritates me.

Today I got a call from the school that Madison had an accident and didn't have any clothes to change into so they wanted me to come pick her up right now. The problem is I am working about an hour away from home and when they called it was already almost 2:30 by the time I would get there school would be out anyway. I called everyone I know on that side of town and couldn't get anyone. If they would follow what I suggest by having her use the bathroom every hour since she has bladder problems and takes meds to help to begin with maybe they wouldn't have had her having 3 accidents in a week.

Kelly ended up having to leave work early. When he got home we found out the hard way that we missed paying our natural gas bill and the heat is off until tomorrow when they will send someone out to turn it back on. Fortunatly its not last week when we had snow and freezing temperatures. Its not supposed to get quite as cold as it has been. Generally we turn it way down at night anyway since everyone sleeps so hot we don't need it on very high, but I am still sure it will get a little chilly by tomorrow morning. I feel like such a bad mother!

Also it is time for Izzaks IEP re-evaluation and the school waits until the week before it is due to call and schedule once again the fact that I work makes it hard to schedule things with only a weeks notice, since they wanted me to schedule out of the blue for next week. They could have called me farther in advance to schedule and it would have been a lot easier to get the time off. So now they are paniking to get it done because it has to be done by a certain date or they get in trouble with some government group for not following the rules. I wish they had to follow my deadlines that I wanted when this whole thing got started with his testing.

Anyway I am really glad they don't have school tomorrow that means no calls from the school to stress about. Ok so I am done ranting. I do have to say one good thing. I started Joshua on Melatonin to help him sleep last week and it is working wonders he actual goes to sleep at a decent time without to much fight.

2 people had something to say:

For some reason she has it out for my kids. This isn't the first time we have had problems with her. My dad works for the same bus company and hates her. But yes she saw them and didn't wait and also knows that I leave so no one is there for them to come home to.
