Good morning ladies, I was just wondering how many of you lovely ladies suffer from the "Not able to sleep all night syndrome" like me. I find the older I get the more I wake up several times a night...and there is no need to try to go back to sleep, I just lay there and toss. Was just wondering, you know the old saying "inquiring minds want to know"...lol..
Anyhow decided to make the best of the early morning quite and tell you about my visitors last Sat.
Middle boy and his wife live in Richland and both work so we don't get the pleasure of their company much except Holidays or special occasions. (or when Rissa is having a bad time and we have to keep her for a few days, since they both work and don't have a babysitter near by)
Our Rissa is a special little Angel, she is extremely smart makes very good grades and very talented..she learns quickly.....but she also has ADHD and OCD. She did great in school the first of the year...after they returned to school from the Holidays, she had a small adjustment problem, anyone who has a child with ADHD and OCD know they do not adjust to changes very well. She did not take to having the furniture moved around and someone else in "Her" desk, now to an average person all desks look a like and serve the same purpose, right? Right, but not to someone with OCD, her chair was her chair and she knew it from all the others, even though it was moved across the room to someone elses spot. Needless to say she would not accept this little boy in her chair and she pushed him out, kicked him and tried to drag the chair back to her spot...she became quite irritated and aggressive and would not do what the teacher told her to do and was very disruptive of the whole class, a behavior we do not except nor does the school so she was sent home for a week, Just the little item of someone else in her chair threw her whole world off and she couldn't handle it. So back to the Dr she went. Too make a long story short she spent several weeks with me, she was sent home for several days and when she went back she refused to do any class work so home she came again and back to her behavioral specialist., they have adjusted her meds and also working on a new program of good behaviour, rewards, bad behavior punishment.
For the last 3 weeks she has been doing good and she is working so hard, that she was rewarded with a new skate board, one she has been wanting for awhile, but had to earn. Right now she is doing good, but we are always holding our breath waiting for the other shoe to drop....waiting for something not right in her world, to set her off.
Middle boy decided to take Sat off from working around the house and just come down and visit with his Daddy and I, we Bar-B-Q chicken and just had a good time sitting around and talking, MinMin, Rissa and I went to several junk stores...yep they are junkers too...lol...and then we went to Saves-Alot grocery store, where MinMin bought groceries, for 79.00 she got enough groceries for 2 weeks, she was tickled to death, you can find lots of good buys there, since they don't have a Saves-Alot in Richland or Jackson, she said she would probably come down every 2 weeks or so to stock up.I took some pictures of my skate boarder...lol..no place to skate here but in the house, now I'm here to tell you my boys would never have gotten away with skating in the house...but Grands are just different...lol...
Of course since she had been so good, I found her a cute Barbie make-up kit for her reward/Valentines day...she's not allowed candy so she was just as happy with this or happier...I also gave her the cute kitten frame I showed the other day. She couldn't wait to get home and put Bella's picture in it.
Now Chi-Chi is not too sure she likes this skate board thing in her house...
she decided to bury herself under her Sponge Bob blanket..
Well can't a girl get any quite time around here..jeez...go home already.They finally went home and Chi Chi got some rest, until tomorrow night when Mo-Mo is coming to spend the night. She really hides from her. MoMo loves toting her puppies around and the Queen doesn't want to be touched....Bwahahaha
It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day here in Central Mississippi, hope it is nice where you are.If things go as planned Dear Sis and I are going to the Natchez Spring Pilgrimage next Tues. I will be sure and take my camera...I feel a picture post of the old homes coming soon.
