Tag Archive: Manic Monday

WOW what a Manic Monday!

WOW was today hectic or what! I was way too busy to even think about what was going on! Jacob had a sleepover last night and of course since they didn’t have school today, they were up at the break of dawn with the tv blaring and computer blasting video games! 6am was way too early for all that! Now of course come tomorrow morning when I am trying to wake them up at 6:30 it’ll be ww3, Jacob has already said that he wasn’t going tomorrow for us to not even bother waking him! Ugh, where did he get the idea that he can pick when he gets to go to school?!

Unfortunately the rest of the week is going to be just as hectic as today…minus the parties and sleepover of course!

We have our usual counseling and play therapy but also Cub Scouts start back this week so that is another thing we will be shoving into an already over booked calendar! Scott also has to call first thing tomorrow to find out about a drug test he has to take for a possible job he is going after. So pray pray pray that he gets this job! We also have curriculum nights for both the kids Tuesday and Wednesday. Don’t know how we are going to do it on Wednesday as Scott and I both have to be at Cub Scouts and will not be able to make it to the Kindergarten Night. Guess I will see if my mom or Granny can go cover for us.

Alright my loves, it is getting late and I have a migraine so I’m going to log off here and log into dream land. Show some love and subscribe or follow in some way. Love you and I will see you again tomorrow!



As promised on Monday, I am going to start having WORD UP WEDNESDAY! WORD UP WEDNESDAY  is where I will describe something in one word.. most likely the past few days.

So without further ado this weeks word is…..


Between kids going crazy and refusing to go to school, over booking myself, car repairs and everything else that has been thrown at me I am ready for this week to be over. I am really looking forward to the long weekend so I can sleep and do nothing!


Ok so like every Tuesday Jacob had counseling today… Pretty much standard meeting. She just wanted to find out how he was doing on the behavior chart we have worked on for a few week. He did AWESOME last week and showed us that when he puts his mind to it he really can behave like a little gentleman versus the wild indian we see much of the time! I love Jacob so very much and honestly wouldn’t cure him of the Aspergers if given the chance. Over the past 5 years we have known he was an ASPIE we have grown to love his quirkiness, as long as no one is getting hurt! I’ll list the behaviors below that he is working on. He gets a nickel for each one he gets a smiley face for on Sunday and his counselor lets him play Angry Birds on her phone if he gets a certain amount of points during the week. This past week he received 47/50 points! the 3 points he missed were for sneaking and playing video games while grounded!


Current Behaviors being monitored:

  1. limiting media possible 7 point
  2. hitting, kicking, pushing, possible 7 points
  3. getting to school without issue possible 5 points
  4. staying at school all day possible 5 points
  5. doing homework without issue possible 5 points
  6. back-talking possible 7 points
  7. self-control possible 7 points
  8. threatening possible 7 points

total possible points 50

If he gets all 50 points we will reward him with an extra 50 cents for a possible weekly allowance of $3.00!

Once he has met the terms of his contract (I’ll post more on that another day!)¬† a new one will be written out and a new behavior list made up, but for now we are very pleased with the progress of our Tuesday’s ASPIE!


Ok I am going to start something new. I have set up a weekly layout for my blogs… They will be as follows
