Toad’s Weekly Assessment #33

Aside from Monday, it’s been a very quiet week here. I’ve spent most of my time over on Scribophile. Actual revisions and changes have begun on my novel, Surge of the Soul Eater and I feel like more “stuff” is germinating in my head but no idea yet whether it will generate into anything or if ideas are still cooking. Also really grateful that I haven’t been hit with a big migraine despite not having any meds this week. Med clinic appointment this Tuesday so hopefully I will get my med order in correctly by asking in person instead of over the phone.

    • spoke about concerns over Little Bear and the slow escalation of aggression with all the boys since Christmas vacation, seems to be climbing still
    • also spoke about feeling bored, despite the crisis, but decided it’s because I’m juggling less since moving out of that horrid apartment so even with this thing going on with Little Bear, I feel like I don’t have that much to do

Wednesday ~ February 1, 2017

Notes

  • I really didn’t feel like getting out of bed today but I made it out and I live
  • irritation spiked when the boys got home – Little Bear had an unusually high constant demand for interaction, like in your face nonstop, couldn’t even talk to my sister, didn’t get a chance to talk to my cousin before they left – I feel bad for all of them, obviously Little Bear needs/wants one-on-one time but I can’t help but wonder if he’s doing this only because he’s grounded
  • Discussed with my sister, Piggie – who has been covering Health for Scholar Owl this year – his progress so far with homeschooling.

  • 4 cups of coffee
  • breaded fish fillets and potato puffs
  • couple of slices of Gouda cheese

Notes

  • Little Bear’s class had a family fun day at school today, I went and watched them make “snow” with baking soda and hair conditioner – he had a blast after he got over the scent (his was coconut and it upset him until I told him what the smell was)
  • now I finally have a use for the excessive amount of bottles of hair conditioner that has been donated to my family but didn’t have the heart to throw out and no one to give it to, just need to find a use for the shampoo, maybe this summer I’ll have them use it for blowing bubbles – assuming it will work and the boys will tolerate the scent
  • each Christmas the schools send us care packages for each of the boys and it always includes shampoo and conditioner – which would be awesome if we weren’t picky about the brands/types/scents we use, but we are and since the stuff is donated we have no say as to what we get, so each year it’s a minimum of 3 bottles of each – not sample size either, I’m talking the regular size
