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:
Ok, let me apologize first for not visiting everyone on the Sunday post the last two Sundays, I feel really bad about it and I am around this Sunday, hopefully with no major set backs. I’ve been around a bit but nothing like I usually am and here is why…Most of you know the situation with my son, well the last month or so things have gotten crazy with him and we started to see him get more violent and just down right mean, nothing like last year, but it’s been enough that I had to readjust some things to focus on him. We think Ryan is accepting that he isn’t a good kid and that he will always be bad. He also will not face what he is doing wrong because he feels like this is just what it is. No matter what we say he just doesn’t care and instead of learning from his mistakes he is just accepting them as a part of who he is. Now how do we fix that? I have no idea. We have had some very crazy nights and I am exhausted from worry and tired of it all. That doesn’t mean I am giving up on him. I NEVER will give up on him but it just might be a little more work to make him see his worth and get him to understand emotions we have and he feels better. I spoke to his psychiatric nurse and we both feel that he just needs a bit of a change because the tactics we are using he seems to know the outcome and doesn’t care (we are hoping a change is what is needed). So if we change up how we do things it might make it harder for him to see what is coming. I will talk/work with his in home therapist and the state service person to see if we can adjust what we are doing. We are not changing his meds since we don’t think it is that it’s more behavior or something else going on in his head. I don’t know if what we plan to do will work but I am running out of options. I don’t want him back in the hospital, that killed me, I just hope we can get through to him. Sorry this is such a long post I just wanted to explain why I am not around but things seem a little better, for now, so I can get back to visits and posts because of course, I am behind AGAIN!!! 🙂
I was able to read this week and that always makes me feel better because it just takes me away from real life. I was able to finish Cheyanne Young’s City of Legends series and it was so much fun to be back in that world again. I am going to miss it so much. Such a great series. I am also mentioned in the second book which makes me so delighted! I need to get my hands on hardcopies, so I can display them on my bookshelf. (which I actually need a new one because I ran out of room)
This week I am hoping to work on more posts and get myself back to being organized because I totally fell off the wagon and noticed how stressful I feel when I am not. So I got a few things for my planner and will hopefully start getting myself back together. I also came up with a way to organize my books, of course I can’t find anything to suit my needs and will have to make it myself. I will share it when it is finished.
Julia had a great last game, of course she didn’t hit anything, of all the games she has always hit the ball at least once but the last game she just didn’t seem like she was 100% in but I must say throughout the season she has come a very long way. We came home to eat are celebratory Pizza Hut and ordered buffalo wings. Bite into the yummy buffalo wing and guess who broke her tooth? Yup! This girl right here. I am so mad, I am trying so hard to save money for Disney and now I have to get a tooth pulled because it pretty much broke in half, stupid teeth, this tooth never had any issues so I have no idea what happened.
I am also designing like a mad woman and I couldn’t be happier. If you need anything don’t forget to let me know. I would be delighted to make whatever you need look amazing.
