First day went well. Friday might be a little more crazy though.
Normally she will be working a 10 to 4 prepper and sandwich maker shift on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays.

This poor kid doesn't get a break. Finally the sleep study results are in and we were told he pretty much has had the worst results they have seen. In the 6-7 hours we were there, he stopped or struggled to breathe 299 times. During REM he stopped 69 times. Sooooo, a C-pap it is. We will go for a fitting soon and a company will come to set it up and then some how or another we need to get him to agree to wear it.


I saw this and loved it. I ordered the bulbs and the light string to create it myself.
Only they failed to mention that the light sockets are actually 4 feet from each other and getting this result is not really possible. So I made a make shift 'sack' to hold and hide all the extra wire. But that was not the look I wanted so a piece of pipe and twine later....
I like it. Now lets see now long these spendy bulbs actually last!

Pottery Worx

Canyon started at Pottery Worx this week. Transportation was coming to get him and bring him back at crazy times but I think we got that worked out. Unfortunately there has been little to no communication which is bordering on unexceptable. Hopefully things will get more under control next week. For instance today I had attached a note to his backpack for the woman in chage there with a few questions. He returned home with the note still attached. There is no possible way they didn't see it. I might be sending Sahara for a sit-in next week so we can get a good picture of what the day looks like for him.
He seems to like it and is happy to go each morning. That and the transportation schedule getting straightened out is about all that's going right for now.
