This blog should be called My Momentary Lapses of Time........

The last couple of weeks of been what can you call it.......a mess.  The kind that makes you think you are literally going crazy.  It all started out with a major high when my banner from the previous post got featured at Handmadeology and Tatertots and Jello.  I was literally floating on air.  I also got some new kids to watch which was great because our daycare has been so quiet lately.  It was all starting to look up.  But then two days later the kids were gone.  And I was crying and have yet to get paid.  Everything just came to a apex.  Kiah is still having trouble in school, Granny is becoming more confused, no time to do any things I need and want to do, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.  I really thought I was going crazy, I even cut my own hair and totally messed it up.  I am feeling some better.  But I am still a bit nervous because Kiah needs to see a behavioral specialist to get an IEP.  His school won't give him one unless his is two years behind.  Isn't that a little too long to wait when kids need help. I had a meeting with the teacher and principal and I think I made some headway.  Even though they still insisted I give him some kind of medication and didn't even seem to care when I told them his doctor says he doesn't need it.

Thank God for grandparents because Chris and I were finally able to get out of the house for more than a couple hours.  We took some business classes over the last weekend together.  It was an experience and informative but it is hard for me to just sit down and not think about everything else that is going on. 

In my crafty life I finished my ornaments for a swap I am participating in ~

I also made this Halloween door sign for our party.  It is the 23rd annual and once you come you always come back ~

I finished this up a couple weeks ago but never posted it.  This is my green ephemera collage ~

I also have another freebie to share.  Here are some vintage assorted poison labels for you crafts and decorating.  Just save image as and print out on cardstock.

Hope you all are enjoying the season.  Talk to ya later~

Beautiful, beautiful ornament! Can't wait to get mine!

I expect to finish mine tomarrow or Thursday.

Stick to your guns with Klah. One thing to consider; there is no funding for IEP's for children until they are two years behind. It's not the school's fault, it's the system. Also, Klah's behavior with the doctor may be very different from his behavior in school, as the environment in the doctor's office is very different from that of the classroom.

Good for you to bring in the bahavior specialist.
My heart really goes out to Klah. The classroom situation is obviously not working for him, and funding cuts mean schools may not have the resources they need to get him the extra help. I wish I knew him better and could advise a workable situation.

Thank you guys! I am glad you like the ornaments.
Suzanna, I know it's not the schools fault their hands are tied by the system. My son is getting good grades in all. The teacher just seems to be picking on him because of his learning style. It takes him a bit longer to finish his work and it is harder for him to concentrate probably because the larger class room size. So we will see what the behavior spealist has to say. Hopefully he can give me some pointers. Hope you all have a good week!

Hi there! Thanks for your comment (last week) I'm finally feeling better. Sorry to hear about all you're going through...and your computer...ouch! Texture Town is fantastic...I'm way behind from everyone being sick around here, so I'll slowly try to catch up...although there's NO rush because the class will be there...but for me, if I don't get to it right away..I'll avoid it I learned to force myself to get goin' while the gettin's good (what am I 80?) Hopefully you get the computer situation fixed soon cause I know you are going to rock this class!
