Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, post a recap of the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
On the Blog & Real Life:
I got back from Vacation on August 8th and we had such a good time (I’ll explain in a moment) It was so nice to refresh myself and when I came home I realized a lot of my stress is because I am so very unorganized. You might think I am organized but I fake adult very well and honestly I am so unorganized that it’s literally overwhelming at times. So this weekend I worked out what I need to do and it occurred to me that not only did I not know how to spell occurred but I think this would make a great post to share with others that have a very hard time getting organized. So look for that post very soon!
On to the vacation, we had a BLAST! We went to Wildwood, NJ if you haven’t been there that fine it’s not a must see before you die, trust me but it was so much fun to hang with the family and not have to clean anything or do laundry. We spent a lot of time swimming and 6 hours at the water park that was literally on the next blog from out hotel, we can see it from out window, the park is small but has so much to do that we got two lounge chairs and let the kids go off on there own checking in with us after they slide down two slides. If they were gone to long we would search for them but usually found them in the lazy river. The best part is the bucket that dumps down from above, it kind of hurts when it splashes down but that’s only if you have big ears like me, they get beat up by the water, but it’s fun to stand under it.
At nights we spent a lot of time on the boardwalk and spend a LOT of money. My son was obsessed with the crane machines and getting these BunBun toys but with great patience and skill he got them all.
He also won me a little stuffed Death Star and it’s adorable.
My son was watching a 13 year old girl with her parents trying to get a Racoon BunBun when the girl finished her last try, my superhero son stepped in and put his money in. He told them that you needed to try and grab their heads because it’s heavy and you can grab and hold it better, first shot and he grabbed the racoon. He took it out and handed it to the girl. The girl was so happy and the parents thanked him. He said no problem and I couldn’t be prouder of him. He has his issues but he has a big heart and just a wonderful little man.
The rest of the week was filled with swimming and boardwalk walking. The last two days were a bit overcast we even went to the beach one day and I HATE THE BEACH! We all came home darker than when we left but completely refreshed. I posted a lot of pictures on instagram, so feel free to check them out HERE.
Ryan update: He needs to go back to school we have been having some moments with him but not as bad as before he went to the hospital. I think the pills are making him tired, since he has a hard time expressing his feelings he lashes out and because of all his issues lashing out can get bad, but we have been handling it and trying to help him. I have a call in to see if we can switch his morning pills (its 5 pills) to night and the pills at night (2 pills) to the day, it might help him not be so tired. I am going to call the school to schedule a meeting with them (once it starts) so I can explain what I have been seeing over the summer and have them aware that a lot of what is happening now is more from the Autism than from the Bi-Polar/Mood disorder. So with a little teaching and a lot of patience we will work through it but I figure I haven’t updated in a while, so there is it. 🙂
