Well yesterday afternoon I went to a meeting about Tatum's services...This is what we now are starting...Speech once a week OT once a week PT twice a month and Education once a month...this is pretty much the most I am going to get...Once Tatum starts walking the OT well decrease and as she gets older the Speech well increase...Poor kid that is a super busy week for anyone... I did get some good information to look into about state medical wavers and hippotherapy for Tatum. Although I was a good 20mins late and felt super rude, the meeting went well and Tatum did great on her hearing test.

No matter what time of day I swear you can never predict the traffic in this area...The morning just keep getting worse and worse...I can only keep my fingers crossed that today does not follow the weeks trend on a 20mile one hour and twenty min. ride.....Frustrating to say the least... I had my camera in the morning the other morning and snapped this photo so you all could really feel my pain...It is sad that you get used to it, well I do anyway Chris is a total different story, thank God he is getting out of this mess...

In Other News...
We had a great weekend as far as I am concerned, The Eagles won we took the kids to the fair Sat. night, I know I said I was not going ot go but I really wanted a funnel cake and i was feeling like we needed to just get out of the house.
Sunday the girls ( all the girls, mine Zoe, Clare and Morgan) and I went to Kylie's b-day party at Adventure Park on Sunday...I am not sure who had the best time. Emma and I kicked butt in the go-carts although I am not sure that she'll ever go on that ride with me again and I was the first person there to ever play laser tag with a baby strapped to my hip...It was fun but I was a little sore from caring Tatum and the laser tag pack....you can imagine how silly I must have looked...Good thing Chris had my camera with him at the race track... He went up Sunday to see his buddy Scott race.
Anyway Busy during the month at work or not it always pours the last week so I'll be working a ton the next bunch of day...I do not mind thought just happy to have work...Happy Hump Day :)

Glad you had a good weekend. I don't really do rides. I know I'm a chicken. I could not handle that traffic. I used to drive 25 minutes everyday to and from work without that kind of traffic, I thougt that was bad.

Heather said...

Lis, Thanks for the update. Glad your meeting went well. Boy getting just the right amount of therapy is hard. Caleb is almost 10 and still needs OT and Speech and possibly PT. I don't ever see an end in sight.:( No wonder you call me on the morning drive. I would be a total wreck. the verification word for my comment is WOWSYS I thought that was funny. Once and awhile they actually resemble a funny word. Love you ton's too!

Great news on the IFSP! I do feel your pain, especially on my 20 minute drive to work with zero traffic...god I love the Midwest!

Tara said...

Sounds like the IFSP meeting went well!! You're weekend sounds great - and I would've loved to see you playing laser tag with a baby on your hip (I know I wouldn't have been able to move the next day)!

Im glad the meeting went well and it sounds like you had a great weekend too!
I dont do rides - i have enough trouble keeping my balance walking upright let alone after spinning in oblong circle patterns for 5 minutes!
That traffic looks AWFUL! Im blessed to live in a quiet capital city with great roads where it only takes 40 minutes to get from one side to the other!

Amen to Amy! I drive 19.6 miles (one way) to work. It takes me 22 minutes. I love rural life! When I lived in Lansing (our capital city) it took 45 minutes to drive 10 miles.

I am so glad Tatum can have speech therapy. They do amazing things with our kids.

OMG, I just looked at the word verification and it says "eypee". Where do they come up with this stuff?
