There are lots of things I need to tell you, I will really try to do more posting. Big things with transition to adult day programs, wheel chair company begging me for YOUR feedback, and more. But here is something that has me pissed at the moment. I have been going to Pearlsky’s school unannounced

I am still waiting to hear about stuff. Every knock on the door, every phone call makes me jump. Nothing yet, hence no further discussion about that at this time. My best friend tells me yesterday of a beautiful, quiet place she found to walk and think. I need to think. It is not too
