First Week back!

September 5th, 2013 at 03:07 am

I'm trying to catch my breath with everything that's going on. New schools for the kids, new school for me, and trying to find my way around this place has been challenging.I'm relieved that it's starting to come together.

First off, the kids are back in school, getting to know other kids, and seem happy. No complaints from them! I'm glad my oldest DD has adjusted easily enough to high school. She has met other kids and exchanged numbers with them. My youngest DD has met a few kids in the neighborhood and likes her teacher, yay!

I really like my new job. There is so much support at this place, I'm not coming home physically and mentally exhausted like I used to. Yes, the students have challenging behaviors (or else they wouldn't be in this program), but the support is there for me to help change the behaviors. There is a system in place to radio for back up if a student has a melt down and is becoming unsafe. There is a behavior specialist on staff who pops in throughout the day with support. I actually get my planning time! I know that it is only day 2 but I'm so thankful for even 2 days. It has never gone so smoothly in the past.

I will update my goals and savings plan soon, financially things are still a bit up in the air. I have a new local credit union account, my old one, my online one, and the shared account with my partner. I'm in the middle of cutting this down to half.

    Great that your high school age DD is adjusting well! That can be a really hard age to go to a new school.
