- Pissed off that its a hassle getting 3 children and a wheelchair in and out of the car every day for school and preschool drop offs.
- Pissed off that I have to spend so much time at appointments, which means the housework and washing backs up (which further pisses me off) and means I'm tired all the time
- Pissed off that it is only week 4 of the school term and that means it is 6 weeks until school holidays
- Pissed off at my children's behaviour
- Really pissed off when I see myself mirrored in my children's behaviour.
- Another thing that is really pissing me off is that our church is having a weekend away shortly. It is not the weekend away itself that pisses me off, it is how difficult it is for us to participate in it. They are having it at a wheelchair accessible venue, but that is the least of our difficulties. Having to deal with an Ashlea meltdown in front of a bunch of people we harldy know (there are heaps of new people at church) is far more stressful than any phsyical access. For some reason this weekend away has really unsettled me. I would like to go. I know with a lot of effort we could go. I just don't feel that I have that kind of energy at the moment. I feel like I would spend the whole time sticking out like a sore thumb and having to explain our situation or Ashlea's behaviour to people. I already have school and preschool for that - I can't do it on my weekend too.
2. No news on the car or the wheelchair.
3. Ashlea continues to make slow progress after the swine flu vaccination that went wrong. She is now crawling really well - not back to 100% but getting pretty close. Still no W-sitting - although she is starting to 'frog' sit - on all fours but rocked back on her hind legs...like a frog. Not much weight bearing on her legs yet though. We see the physio on Monday.
4. I have invited ALL the parents from Emma's class to my house for morning tea next week. Am I crazy???.
5. Today I actually took some photos on my camera using the manual settings. Its very exciting to understand how it all works (well, some of the basics anyway). For my photography course next week we are going on a night shoot in the city which should be great fun. Anyway, here are a couple of today's photos...you will notice that not all of my subjects like to co-operate, so this is the best I could get. Acutally none of my subjects like to co-operate. Ashlea tries to crawl all over me while yelling "take a picture", Emma pulls faces and Audrey refuses to look at the camera unless bribed with chocolate - all of this is captured in the pictures below...
