My previous blogs, while heartfelt, have been downers. Accentuating the positives here: I cleaned my house today! Fellow flybabies: 15 minutes at a time when I felt overwhelmed. And as I worked through my kitchen table, I thought, ya know, I could have done this 15 mins at a time a month ago! It's been an energy drain all this time. I bought some clearance long sleeve shirts, size large fits! I'm hoping it's b/c my body is morphing closer to fit and not just because this brand of L is more generous. Had a meaningful dialog with my oldest son (after a blowup on his part) still and all, I was clear on my problems with his actions. Weather has been beautiful, and hopefully some rain tomorrow. The new puppy and kitten cuddle together and melt my heart. The family signed up for a walk next weekend. Money to a great local cause. Not sure which of us will do 1mile and which will do 5K. It's an out and back route, so I can turn back if I'm not up for more than a mile or so. Craved chips and dip today: flat bread toasted and spinach artichoke dip augmented with water chestnuts, neufchatel and greek yogurt.

    I read your previous blog so I could have a handle on what's going on in your life.

    As a teacher I can tell you that perhaps a school solution is as close as your guidance counselor's office. Based on the sketch you said, he may qualify for an specialized education plan (an IEP in my state, you may have different initials) which would include a resource room to help with school work and specialized counseling with a in-school psychologist or therapist to help him cope and work on coping skills.

    9th grade is a rough year. Students frequently have trouble with the transition. SparkMail me if you need more info.
