^^^ This is how I feel right now ^^^
And that is Tucker, by the way. Not Apollo.
Let me just give you glimpse into a day in my life.
6 am Alarm goes off, I start the coffee
6:15 I get Jubilee and Hezekiah up
6:30 Wake son with autism.
6:45 Wake son with autism.
7 am ABA therapist comes and attempts to get son with autism out bed.
7:10 Hezekiah and Jubilee get on the bus.
7:30 If the therapist is successful in getting son up, I drive him to school.
Meanwhile, I make breakfast for Apollo and myself.
8:40 Avi and Tucker get on the bus.
If it is a school day for Apollo (Mondays and Wednesdays) I pack him a lunch and pick up his friend, Indi, and drive them to school.
Yesterday was Thursday, and Chuck and I had an appointment at 10:30 am. We dropped off Apollo and his brother at my parents’ house and went to the meeting.
One member was 30 minutes late which put us behind schedule.
11:45 meeting is over. I needed to be home for a phone conference at 12 pm. Chuck drove me home, I handled my call. Chuck headed back into town to pick up the boys. He arrived home at 1:20.
1:20 I had a parent/teacher conference. Yes, I was late.
Chuck had a 1:45 appointment. He was probably late too.
5:00 pm Drop Jubilee off to babysit
5:30 ABA therapist comes back for evening session
6:30 Send Kalina to pick up Jubilee
7:30 Read Apollo a chapter out of Percy Jackson. Some people meditate to relax. I read Greek myths out loud to torture myself.
8 pm Send Chuck to pick up Hezekiah from play practice.
Yes, yesterday was worse than most days. Yes, I felt my brain was going to explode from switching gears so quickly. Yes, I didn’t get enough sleep last night.
And yes, I’ll be back to my regular blogging schedule soon.by
