Taylor had his backpack night at school tonight. Was able to meet all of his teachers. His special ed teacher is a girl I went to high school with and she is the one that recognised me(we were in two different group) but its been 12+ years so lol. She has an aide that I dont know. They seem like an awesome pair and seem like they will do good with him. His regular ed teacher is a lady that taught with my mom a few years back when my mom was still teaching. She is a really nice person and was supposed to be Trinitys teacher for preschool BUT we were able to switch her to the school that was closer to us. She is a good teacher. Her aide knows my aunt who actually had her son in law as a foster kid years and years ago. She was also the teachers aide so came to the home visit when Trinity was supposed to go there. Taylors last teacher which is actually his teacher of record which is someone who monitors everything and works with him a bit and keeps up with his iep (special ed paper that says his goals and everything) used to be Trinitys 4 year old teacher when I took them to a daycare center when I was going to college back in 2009/2010. So I know the main teachers and one of the aides personally. Kind of nice to know them all.
That's great news Kati. I'm glad it worked out that way. Gotta be a relief! :)
So... I think I'll be able to move into the new house this weekend. I'm going to head out there today to carpet clean and get some paint of sinks/floors/counters. I'm kinda excited about it. DH was gonna be switched to the swing shift but he told them he has birthing classes on thursdays so he would need a different schedule for that day and so at their manager meeting this morning I guess the bosses decided that he should stay on days because of "his pregnant wife and birthing classes." I feel kinda guilty.... he wasn't like refusing to do the swing shift and now someone else has to be put on it. I'll be glad to have him work the day shift though.
Id rather work days then swing shift. No thank you. Glad they were willing to keep him on days.
Trinitys first day of school is today. She was soooo excited to go. I was kind of sad we didnt get to walk them into their classes and do the whole picture bit in the room but thats ok. Shes growing up.
Ugh. I just need to say it somewhere. My marriage is struggling.
(---HUG--) You're not the only one, Maddz.
Im sorry Maddie. Hopefully you can work it out. I ended things with my fiance about 2 months ago and me and my kids are sooo much happier
I think it's got to do with hormones leveling off for pregnancy and my bi polar kicking back in. The pregnancy helped level me out but now that those hormones are getting level- I am getting more swings. Crazy how that works huh??
IDK. Plus its our first year of marriage. I knew it would be hard... but not this hard. Makes me sad.
On another note:
Tomorrow I have to take Riley to school.... It's my week with him so it's crazy for me. His 3 hours away will be a relief and saddening at the same time.
We have been moving this weekend so I've been SUPER Busy. I don't have internet at the new place yet. I have to get it set up SOOON though because my college classes start tomorrow. :/ lame. Our new house looks like a hoarders house because nothing is organized yet. So frustrating. I have to clean the old apartment still too. At least I have until the end of the month to do that.
IDK if anyone saw but I got my echocardiogram set up. On the 27th. SO NERVOUS> If the appt going well then this will be a low risk pregnancy again! WOW. I am so very hopeful and excited and anxious. Lots of mixed emotions. So I have two more appointments coming up soon. the 27th and then the 3rd.
Good luck with your eco appointment Maddie.
Taylor starts school tomorrow Im sooo excited for him and he is to. He cant wait. I have to work on a paper for him to take back ug. lol Horrible weekend but I'll come back and post about it in a few.
Our first year was really hard too. I don't know if you guys lived together for very long before getting married but we did and I always thought it would make being married less of a change... I was wrong. I don't know if the first year is always this hard but for us we moved overseas so that stress made it difficult. You've had an exceptionally tough time so don't beat yourself up. Just keep working on it and there will be better/good times. Eventually there will be more better than bad times. But there will always be some yucky times, it's just the nature of being different people. The bi-polar definitely doesn't make things easier.

I've often been able to just shut down an argument because I know that I can bring it up at the therapist's office that week. It has saved us from many hours of arguments. My sister sometimes goes to her pastor for marital help...
(sorry, didn't mean to write an essay here, and didn't mean to get all heavy. Just want you to know you're not alone in struggling with marriage, and that's it's not the end of the world to be struggling.)
