I like Feel Good Friday because it reminds me to remember the great things, and to see the good in the things that might not have felt so great at the time.
Jeans Day Fundraiser!
Where Mark works, they have a jeans day on Friday -- just like a lot of places do.
You can also wear jeans on Mondays, on the condition that you make a donation to the designated charity of the month. Donations for the month of March are going to the National Fragile X Foundation. Mark is on the committee that helps decide what charity to donate to each month and he pushed for Fragile X.....we are so excited and proud of him!
Home Health Nurse
Last week the home health nurse came out to evaluate the boys and see if they still have Fragile X, I guess. They do, and we still qualify for funding from the state, which is a very good thing to feel good about. Not that they still have delays and still qualify as disabled -- I prefer to think of it as, it's great that we still qualify for funding that we desperately need!
On AJ's laptop, te "h" no longer works, and I'm going to use that as a reason to feel good on Friday because a) all the other letters still work, and b), you don't even need an "h" to spell Feel Good Friday!
This week I made a dinosaur diorama and two science fair projects - wait, I mean ALIZA did a dinosaur diorama and two science fair projects. I am feeling good about all that because it's DONE. And it's definitely "feel good" material because last night at dinner she actually thanked me for all my help. What a sweetheart she is. We are doing something right with that girl!
The MVMOM Used Clothing & Equipment Sale is in two weeks and I haven't done a thing to get ready for it. I have a ton of things to sell and none of them are entered into the system yet, much less hung on hangers and labeled. This is something to feel good about because... well because I still have almost two weeks to work on it, and now that the science fair is over, maybe I'll fit it in somewhere!
AJ and Zack also had a successful trip to their doctor this week and they not only tolerated the exam very well but they both left with a clean bill of health!
AJ said the cutest new things this week. 1) Yesterday when I told him to find his Big Sister Dora book so we could read it, he went over to the table, bent down to look underneath, and said "Big Sis Dora, where ahhh you?" Another time I told him I was going to look in the backpack for their sandwich, and he looked down in the backpack with me and said "sandwich, where ahhh you?" 2) And earlier this week he climbed into my lap and curled up and I said "oh, are you my baby?" He looked me square in the eye and said "big kid."
Tonight my book club gets together to discuss Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon. I love my book club people, I love the cafe/wine bar where we are meeting, and I loved that book. It's a guaranteed good time!
... is a much more "normal" week of school and therapy. We should get to stick to our routine a bit more, which will be nice for all of us. We had a fun week, but I think we're all a little frazzled!
