It seems that I'm not on SP that much lately. Which means that my computer time is way down too, which, I think, would make my son very happy -especially during this holiday. :)
I don't want to bore you with my see-saw weight loss at the moment, because it seems like the same old thing I rehash over and over again. (BTW, it is my down week this week. Thank heavens for small mercies)
I feel so much more relaxed knowing it is going to be school holidays for two weeks. I started buckling under the stress of my son struggling in school. I found school very stressful and I didn't even struggle at it, so now having my son struggle is hard for me to handle. Today the only thing that will happen is him bringing back his report card - which the teacher already warned me would not be pretty. So, I'm preparing myself for the worse.
We are taking him for an eye test today after school. Hopefully nothing will be wrong, but I do suspect we'll go home with some eye exercises at the very least. Then on Tuesday I'm taking him for the initial tests to be done so that he could start Neurofeedback. It is going to cost us a pretty penny, but the Pediatrician said it is worth trying before we go the medicine route again. I really hope this is the answer to our dilemma. However it is going to take time and the doc said that to give it three months before making any other changes.
Oh, and then two night ago, my son walks into the study and announced that he won't be going back to school after the holidays. He said that he will stay home and that I should teach him - especially about Rockets. :) I didn't know how to answer him, because he was so convicted in his argument that I couldn't outright say "no". He took it as a yes and promptly went to my husband and told him -very convincingly that I'm now going to teach him at home and he will have no need to ever go back to school. For a wannabe homeschooling family that should have been the best news ever, but it suddenly struck fear into my heart, because the last thing I want to do is fail my child. My husband thinks it is a sign. I think after two weeks at home, he will miss his friends and will want to go back to school. Although this morning he didn't want to get dressed and sternly reminded me that " Mommy remember I told you I am never going back to school."
These things all weigh heavily on my mind. Which could explain the gaining every two weeks.
Gym time will be few and far between this holiday. I will have to make the best of things at home. Time to dust down the elliptical and do some old exercises and maybe get the family to join me. :D
Well, I just wanted to touch base. I'll talk to you soon.
