I'm here

Hi people! I can't write for very long, but I wanted to check in and say hi. Life is continuing as per normal, though we have had some major changes.

First off, since I last updated all the drama with my in-laws being at my place all the time has come to a close. So that's good. We have our house back to ourselves and it's very nice. And my mother-in-law's house looks lovely, so that's goodP, too.

The big change around here is that VEE started kindergarten last week. I know. I KNOW. It's full-day kindergarten and so far she's doing great. Her reading level is WAY beyond that of a normal kindergartener but she really does need socialization with other kids. Her only real friend her age is the little girl who lived next door, and she's six going on 17. Even her grandma (our neighbor) is like "That kid is OLD for her age." And not in an "old soul" kind of way. She's six and she has a favorite horror movie (Child's Play, in case you were curious). So I don't necessarily mind that she moved away. VEE needs more friends her age who just want to play superheroes or ponies or something. But I digress. She likes school, but usually by the time I pick her up after work she's gone from telling her uncle "School was great!" to "Ariel called me Puke Shoes and now I never want to go back to school." Ah, kids. Such fun...

MDR is doing okay. He's in therapy three times a week: developmental, speech, and occupational. The first and third therapists say he's doing well with him and they're seeing good progress. The speech therapist isn't getting as good of results, but 2 out of 3 aren't bad. He seems to *maybe* be better after a few months of therapy? I'm not sure. I might just be optimistic. But I've had a meeting with the local school about getting him into the IEP preschool program there. Next month there will be a play evaluation to see how he's doing and then he'll be placed into either the full-class IEP or the blended preschool. I have a strong feeling he'll be in the former. I'm hoping that doing 2.5 hours of preschool/therapy 5 times a week will make some big improvements in him. But we'll see. It'll take time.

Anyway, that's what's up. Work is busy again all of a sudden, which I don't enjoy since the books I'm working on are poopy. But one of the guys in my department has resigned (and since then been re-hired to work in the warehouse doing distribution) and once he's gone I get his desk. He's got a corner desk with double windows, so I'll take that spot, thank you. After nine years in the same desk, I'm looking forward to a change of scenery. But I'm still curious as to what brought a 19-year employee to quit...

So there we are. Hope you're all doing well!
