I just realized that the rest of March went by without a single post. And a lot happened in March. Of course, that would be why there wasn't another post in March... a lot happened. And is happening.
The biggest event in our near future? Nina will graduate from high school next month.
Did you know she was 8 1/2 years old when I started blogging? And now she's going to be 18 next birthday...
She got her driver's license last week. She has had a permit forever (okay, since she was 15), but it took her a while to gain confidence and improve in her driving skills. She took her first solo drive to church youth last week which was a bit of a shock in a way. I'm not sure why it was so shocking to me. It's not my first driving child, not my first high school graduate child, but it is still very... disconcerting.
Life is in hyperdrive right now. The end of the school year is always rough but with the great winding down of everything, it is just crazy. My bullet journal/calendar is bleeding ink with all the notes and lists and to-do items and events.
[I keep thinking about maybe writing about my own bullet journal (the latest craze! Everyone should have a bullet journal!) and how it's working for me (since January). I love this system - it's perfect for me. File that under future blog posts.]
Meanwhile, we are running hither and yon, mostly with Nina. I don't run Mac anywhere anymore, since he has a truck of his own now, and runs himself around just fine. We're also trying to get some new therapy started for Robbie, and that has been an odyssey of paperwork so far, with no actual evaluation or therapy. But we just got the approval for 4 sessions... between 4/1 and 5/1. Of course today is 4/7... ha. We're not sure how this is going to work out. But we have to keep trying. Don't we?
I think I will try to find time more often to write here, if only to be able to look back and see when things happened, or how things have changed. Future posts percolating in my brain: bullet journal, Autism awareness (aka look at how far Robbie's come, and so much farther we have to go), musical events in my near future, graduation, company is coming! and more... Maybe some free writing or memes. Who knows? That's the beauty of blogging.
