Lately that's been my motto around the house. Last night I paid my bills and sorted a whole pile of snail mail and receipts. I also managed to write a long overdue complaint letter to Paypal, which resulted in my husband's account being reinstated and my account getting credited for a bad transaction (as a courtesy).
Still need to contact a psychologist for Alan as we still have control issue problems at home - not doing stuff on his own or using the potty for #2. Today he told us he was in time outs for both classes. In one class he took a book away from another student and then when his teacher spoke to him about it pushed the book across the table and hit the other student in the hand. In his other class he called a classmate a bad name (stupidhead) (I had been worried he'd used a curseword)
He's also gotten bossy and talks back to us. Hopefully I'll make those calls tommorrow. (We may just not be doing things the best way to work with him and need the guidance.)
A coworker brought in food for people today - two big trays of Biryani (made with turkey) and another tray of marinated cucumbers and onions. Even though I'm not a big Indian food fan, it was pretty good.
Stil figuring out the new matrix management structure at work. Not sure if it's bad or good in the long run.
Wrapped the presents I bought for the charity gifts through my office. The organization my co-workers work with (Stockings With Care
) collects gifts for children in homeless shelters. There are 3 gifts for each child, which are given to the parents to give as they please. I chose a little 5 year old girl who asked for "Pretend n Play" cooking set, "Pretend n Play" dishes and "Pretend n Play" lunch food. I got cute stuff @ Target and CVS - but I think the ones asked for were from KB Toys - but I am sure she'll be happy just the same - the food I got had 117 pieces and I got Disney Princess dishes. Some of the older children ask for more elaborate things like Mp3 players and cameras (I think digital). I'm not sure those are good things to have in a shelter or even if they have easy computer access to use them.
I looked at the long range forecast for next week - it might snow. I'd like a little snow (I may regret this later).
