Who's going to tackle Wednesday with me?

Recommended Posts

all the usual stuff plus:


grocery shopping

laundry - which is a usual stuff but hasn't gotten done in the last two days so I'm going to mention it specially

keep working on getting caught up in grading - focusing on biology which I hate to grade because I don't have an answer guide and so I have to actually do my homework in order to grade the homework.

call allergy clinic

library for book for ds

I'm pretty sure there was something else that ds asked me to do but I was doing something else when he told me and now that I can write it down, I can't remember what it was.

I actually feel better this morning!  Alleluia!  I felt like death warmed over for a couple of days there.


But it seems our cat had a stroke.  She can't move very well.  My dh decided to give her one more day and if there is no improvement we'd euthanize her.  So today is the day we decide.  Everyone was so gloomy yesterday.  My 18 yo on spectrum son started regressing. . . . he is having anxiety attacks over learning to drive.  We were so hopeful this time he could do it, but I don't think so.



Get 18 yo to driving lesson by 10

Get 15 yo to math tutor (remember to pay math tutor!)

Get them home again


take 15 yo to voice (remember to pay voice teacher!)

If I have the energy, I need to get some wide mouth bell jars and start freezing fresh spinach (plastic free!).

Figure out something for dinner.

Faith, I'm sorry about your cat.


I said this on another thread but my Aspie spent months just in the parking lot. We've taken a slow two years learning to drive but now he's a very good driver.

The cat got sicker in the night and still can't walk, so we are going in in about a half hour to say goodbye.


The crazy thing about my 18 yo is that he went to his lesson and the driving instructor said at the end, he's ready to take the test!  What he wants us to do is have 18 yo take an hour long lesson with him and then right afterwards go over to the DMV and have him take the test.  He says that ds is very nervous when starting to drive but after about 1/2 hour he begins to loosen up and then he drives just fine.  Thank God for understanding, experienced homeschooling fathers who happened to have started a driving school in their retirement!  That what this driving teacher is, so he is completely understanding about teaching ds to drive.


We just want ds to be able to drive to the community college and back by himself.  We think it will make him feel much more independent and give him a boost of confidence.

I passed my stress test.  I went almost 10 minutes (4 levels).  They tell me that's pretty good.  I think I could have gone longer, but they stopped it.  They see no problems with the ticker.  But they did say that it was good that I got the test, due to my family history for heart problems.  Particularly my sister, who had a small heart attack 4 years younger than I am.


It was only a little more than an hour from arrival to departure.  I was told to expect 3 hours.


Now I really need a shower.  And I'm gonna wash these clothes too.  :p

Got biology midterm graded and recorded.  That was my biggest roadblock to my grading backlog.  Now I can move on more quickly, I think, in getting things caught up.  


Got ds from college.  Brought him home because he forgot his wallet and I forgot his lunch.  Got that settled and took him to work.
