Today was too busy, but had to be done. Here's how it went:
Dropped Ellsworth off at the vet for his dental
Credit Union to discuss debt consolidation
Breakfast - Got Isaac up
Went to look at the virtual school campus
Bank to again discuss debt consolidation
Costco with Maegann to choose her eyeglasses
Research on basketball options that Isaac chose
Picked up Ellsworth
Tired from the drama regarding basketball reality
Watched an episode of Chesapeake Shores
Watching an episode of Star Trek before bed
Tomorrow the day is totally clear and I intend to keep it calm. I have Bible study time at the top of my list.
Basketball reality is a tough one for Isaac. He refuses to believe he can't make his dreams happen. I'm sorry. The school district has rules. You have one option...the school he attended last year. Otherwise, he needs to choose a local league and the one he doesn't want to go back to is the only one with a guaranteed placement and affordable fees. There's a lot more to all of this story, but you get the idea. I told him all decisions regarding basketball and which school is being attended will be made by Saturday noon. Tim is wanting him to go back to the high school as it would be more helpful to me for down time and for him as there is a decent network in place for his autism. We'll see what happens! Tim may just end up saying "this is how it is going to be".
Finances are going to be handled early next week. We figured out which way to go and will get things shored up by consolidating and we will be much better off and able to start saving again. Tim's medical bills from his stroke several years ago, time without pay this past year, and other unexpected expenses this year have caught up with us. Better to get on top of it now or we'll be in a much worse spot. One stressor being handled!
