Who's going to tackle Wednesday with me?

Recommended Posts

Had serious phone call with placement agency about how we are not copping. I had to be forceful to get my point across that seperation is not working and I cannot think of anything else to do to stop the twins being bullied. They told me they cannot work with me until I am less angry, and when I think of a way that they can help me then let them know. Bang head.


I am completely spent. I social workers are so impossible to communicate with

Oh boy, Melissa, I haven't kept up with what is going on with you, but I do hope there's a solution for you soon!  And Jean, it is so frustrating to be sick!  Gets in the way of everything!  So I hope you feel better soon.



Do lots of my own homework

Get kids up - breakfast school, Latin

Dd needs to do lots of math

Ds needs to read a lot for his English class

I need to prep for co-op Latin

make phone calls

Take dd to math tutor

Take dd to voice lessons

Deal with annoying issues I haven't dealt with!

Maybe chicken for dinner???

Melissa, hope you get some help soon. I am irritated on your behalf at those social workers and their condescending attitudes. Of course they should be helping you, that is their job!

Good morning! Dropped dd2 off at school after am practice. I will leave shortly to take ds2 to the cc. Normally, he will get himself there, but today he is leaving after class to go to the art museum with dmil. After that, I will manage the boy and try to get him working hard. 12.5 years seems to be when the wheels come off of working here, lasting until 14. But lucky ds3, I only really have him to manage. :laugh:


To do:

daily chores

educate boy

jen things

PM practice run/pick up ds2 at dmil

pick everyone up 



Have a great day!

Melissa, they should be pointing you toward resources that can suggest possible solutions.  Surely your 8yo isn't the first kid in their jurisdiction who ever needed services for RAD.  :/  I hope you work something out soon.  What about sending him to a summer day camp or comparable ad hoc arrangement?  If you can stick it out until school starts, at least then you will have time to think about what to do next.

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I have a bunch of work that I was suppose to finish "yesterday" (which means before my clients / auditors look for it this morning).  Well it's 11am and I finished all but one of those projects.  I tried to get up early, but I just tossed and turned and worried instead.



  • Packed kids' gym clothes.
  • Kids up & off to the school bus.
  • Changed out piggie's bedding.
  • Took out the garbage.
  • Some housework.
  • A little reading.
  • A few hours of "work" work.

To do:

  • Lots more work.
  • Finish the laundry.
  • A little more housework and reading.
  • A little exercise.
  • Try to get my calendar up to date?
  • Pay some bills.
  • Some filing.
