I’m so blessed to be too busy! 3 kids, 3 schools, 2 dogs, one wonderful husband and all that comes with a family! I’ve been blessed to be a “stay at home” mom, a never ending, wonderful, crazy, unscheduled “Job”, since Dev was born in 1996.
In my past life I was an Occupational Therapist. I’ve looked into going back at different times but life has always intervened: 1) When Dev was doing really well in preschool-August 2001, Sean was active duty in the Air Force… and sent overseas directly after September 11, 2001. 2) The birth of our 3 child–June 2002 ( I will attest we through cation to the wind as he was sent off to war) He was back before Ian was born (thank goodness). 3) Getting out of the Air Force–moving from Florida to Michigan. 4) Getting Ian ready for school. 5) Economic downturn… move from Michigan to Washington… 6) getting kids settled in new schools…7) NOW??
I do not really want any more life changing events, so I’m not looking into going back to OT right now … Instead I’m working on navigating the new world of collage for our oldest and getting ideas about secondary education for Dev. I’m working on volunteering in my son’s elementary school room. I’m working on marketing my husbands children’s book that includes a child with DS. I’m working on this committee and that committee to improve inclusion/opportunity/… for kids with special needs. I’m working on organizing the bills, the house, the garage, the garden, the….. continually.
My ADD life compounds my ADD personality, I’m always willing to leave the house work to play lego’s, go to the pool or help with home work.
I guess this is all an excuse for why I have not posted as often as I would like. I do have several posts in the works: Biking Independence, Driving…, Swimming, Reliving the Prom, Cheer leading, Sam’s Top Secret Journal.
