TUESDAY’S ASPIE UPDATE


OK so normally Jacob goes to counseling. But apparently for the past 3 weeks his counselor Ms Christel has had emergencies to include a death in the family. Well it has defiantly been blatantly obvious that Jacob has not been to see her. He went from having pretty near perfect weeks to attacking me just because I was on the telephone.

Well luckily he had an appointment on Friday with Dr Smith, his psychiatrist. She took one look at him and said umm he’s not sleeping is he?! So after he broke down and told her that he didn’t think he needed to sleep and that he was having issues with his anger again, she changed up his meds. So now we are in the process of weaning him off his Clonidine and switching it for the new meds … Mirtazapine. So we are taking him from a low dose blood pressure medicine to a anti-depressant. Needless to say I have slept with him the past few days just to make sure all is well with my baby.

Oh and while we were there on Friday I was able to make a new appointment with Christel and after 3 weeks he got to see his arch-enemy today! He hates her because he knows she is right and that she has the power to put a stop to what he is doing. After talking with him alone for about 15 minutes today she quickly called me back to set things straight. He thought he had the wool pulled over her eyes and was trying to tell her that he was acting out because he was jealous of Abi and that since she has started back that we are ignoring him and just giving her all our attention! Uh nope and he knows that is a lie. I set her straight them she set him straight. She said that he was to get over it and get it together.. She’s not playing with him any more.

We shall see how this works… Pray people pray!

Love ya!

Manic Monday!


Mondays are always manic around here but it looks like yet again this whole week will be not only manic but stressful and extremely busy to say the least! Here is what I have planned..

Monday: Quick trip to the grocery store, homework and Girl Scouts.

Tuesday: Eye exam, homework and Jacobs counseling

Wednesday: prepare for the weekend and Cub Scouts

Thursday: Catch up for the week and Abi has Counseling

Friday: absolutely nothing… you can not make me do anything I do not want to do! LOL

Saturday: Going to Zoo Atlanta with the Girl Scouts

Ok so actually this week is fairly typical for us, but if you still feel it is too much for one to-do PLEASE BY ALL MEANS FEEL FREE TO STEP UP AND HELP OUT!

LOVE YA!

AHHHH!!!!


Let’s see my last post was on September 12, and I was apologizing for no longer blogging regularly and I put in a side note that Abi had started talking and Scott had gotten a job. It is now October 2, wanna know what has happened since then… Are you sure?!

LOL oh here it goes, you asked for it!

Indeed Abigael is talking again, just not to everyone just yet. As of now she will only speak to Jacob, her dad, Granny, Alvin and myself. As soon as she senses the presence of someone else, she shuts up like a clam and Jacob seems to be the only one who can get her back to talking. For those of us that she does talk to she just picked up where she left off she whispers, sings and has God forbidden tantrums in which she can scream to high heaven and back.. LOL I love her beautiful voice, just wished it was beautiful all the time! She is slowly starting to make noises around everyone else, which leads me to believe that someday soon everyone will hear this little angel!

Yes Scott did have a new job. A really good job too. But unfortunately he let the devil get into that thick skull of his and he quit,3 weeks in and he just walked away. But that is OK, well it’s not OK but what is done is done and there ain’t nothing I can do about it now! I screamed, I hollered, I threatened, I cried, I beat him with a yard stick, but non of that got his job back nor did it make me feel all that much better…Maybe I should have tried a bat?!

After all this we sat down like grown ups and had a little talk. He is going to get another job and we are going to reinvent our marriage. Although we thrive on routines, there are places that they don’t belong and a marriage is one such place. Over the past 9 years we have just figured out what works and kept doing that. And well our little rut is boring and not helping matters! So we through our the rule book and are changing things up.

Oh yea and in the past week I have been attacked by a bird, a stuffed monkey posed as a rat and a snake! LOL Ok I will tell more! Somehow, don’t know how and really don’t care how, a small brown thrasher managed his way into my house and into my bedroom. After about an hour of trying everything I could think of to rid myself of the sign of death in my bedroom. I through in the towel ran in got its attention and let it chace me all the way outside. I can still feel that mean lil booger on my back!

The stuffed monkey posed as a rat attacked me that very same night… OK OK it didn’t attack me, but it did scare the bejeezus out of me LOL. so here I am still visibly shaken by the bird attack that afternoon and trying to manage to still get a few things done. So I make my rounds and end up in Abi’s room turning down beds and laying out her clothes for the next day. When out of the corner of my eye I spot a good-sized white rat under her bed. I start freaking out cause I know she has no rat like toys. Scott comes running to the rescue and immediately starts trying to get it out from under the bed, only one problem. He has no clue what he’s after cause he doesn’t see anything under the bed. I continue screaming and add a few mean comments because only Scott can miss a huge white rat under the bed! By this time Granny hears me and grabs her bat if it comes after her. Then my beautiful Abigael manages to stop laughing just long enough to whisper Mommy it’s just a stuffed monkey! What no way.. i can tell its a rat! Well call me a fool I don’t care but she bravely and against my will reached behind her bed and grabbed the rat by the tail, only to show that it was indeed just a stuffed monkey! LOL oops!

So OK the snake didn’t exactly attack me either, but it was very real and very alive! Today Scott and I managed to find a few minutes to watch some TV while the kids played outside. Well halfway through Patch Adams, Abi runs in and screams Mommy there is a snake! We jump up run outside, and yep.. The was a 2 ft long black snake making its way across the yard. OK not scared of a black snake so we just scooped it up in the sand bucket and through it back in the woods. But Thank God it was just a harmless black snake and that she had enough sense to come get us and not play with it!

Not exactly sure that this catches you up on everything, but apparently if you don’t blog for a few weeks you end up writing a book! I promise to at least try to start back to my daily blog agenda come next week.

Until then… I love you!
