It's Been A Busy Month

Oops, it's October already. How did that happen? School started, boxes were unpacked, and life went on. I really meant to update this thing with some sort of regularity. Ah, such is life.

Two weeks ago I was finally able to get an evaluation for my oldest son, Xavier. He's a delightful child who is hyper as all hell, defiant, and at times, obnoxious. There are two sides to him, the sweet side and the devil side. He is eight, and I've struggled parenting him since day one. He's always needed more, more of my time and energy. He was diagnosed ADHD and ODD, which is oppositional defiant disorder. No one who knows him well was surprised. NO ONE. I did a happy dance in the parking lot of the mental health office. I finally have answers, and with answers, comes help.

The hubby, Bob, rode in a charity bike ride on Saturday. I'm so proud of him. I couldn't pedal 80 miles! Hell, I don't think I could go one.

In other news, I finished my bathroom floor. The ugly cream and green checker asbestos tiles are gone, replaced with shiny white ceramic tile. I have repaired the toilet about five times, including pulling the whole damn thing up three times. Gotta love home ownership!

Actually, I'm in love with this house. I still walk around and giggle to myself, we own a home! It's ours!

So glad you got some answers for Xavier. And 80 miles on a bike is pretty impressive - go Bob! (I definitely couldn't do a fraction of that distance)
We're still renting so I'm mildly envious of your home renos. Enjoy!
