So, Ashley actually made it to school today, and for the whole day!! WHooHooo!!!
She was doing her usual, I don't feel good thing this morning, I had her take her meds that the doctor prescribed yesterday, and she promptly threw it all up in the kitchen sink. So, I made her go relax on the couch for a bit, and chomp on a couple saltines, hoping it would calm her stomach. The crazy thing about this is that she's fine in the afternoons, it's the mornings when she's been feeling all nauseous and whatever, which is what really makes me wonder if this is all psychosomatic (is that the correct word?). So, after settling down a bit, I had her re-take her meds, take a break, eat some more crackers, take a break, go brush her teeth, take a break, get dressed for school, take a break, brush her hair, take a break, etc., etc., etc.....
AND we made it out the door and across the street to school. She even managed a smile for her friends, and laughed a little at the boys' antics.
I didn't get a call from the school telling me to come pick her up. I am so relieved!!!
So, hopefully we've turned the corner on this thing. Thanks everyone for your well wishes and comments. I may still take her to see the school counselor, just to see if that might help even more. Definitely keeping an eye on her for the next little bit.
So, I was ringing up a customer at work the other night, and whenever I handle a credit card, I'm required to ask for ID, which I did in this case. You'd think I asked her to hand her eye balls to me or something. She was like "EXCUSE ME?", and not in the "I didn't hear you, could you repeat that" manner, but in the "are you insane?" manner.
So tell me, when a cashier asks to see your ID with your credit card, don't you feel good knowing they're watching out for you security, or are you offended?
I really need a fashion intervention, I wish someone would report me to What Not to Wear!
Oh, and as long as we're at it, one of those home makeover shows too.
I really, really am having a major problem with motivation lately. I just can't bring myself to do anything truly productive. It sucks!
I can't believe it's already June. Where has this year gone? I mean seriously...., Seriously.
My Christmas village is still on display.
I have noticed that if I just vacuum the floor, I'm more likely to do other housework with it, like clear off the table, and the island, and do the dishes. Hmmmmm. Looks like I need to begin every day with the vacuum cleaner.
Hope you're all having a great week!
