I'm Being Myself
I've already conducted a webinar on puberty and adolescence in children with seizure disorders, made phone calls for my other job supporting advocacy efforts for kids in foster care, spoken to my sister about supporting Oliver with mindfulness meditation, gotten Sophie ready for an 11:00 orthotics fitting appointment that The Husband is thankfully taking her to, prepared for my afternoon meeting with the social worker from Medi-Cal and IHSS who will be appearing between noon and 2:30, hopefully closer to noon because I need to pick my boys up from school early because it's Tuesday, but not too close to noon because Sophie won't be back from her orthotic fitting, and she needs to be at the meeting so the social worker can ascertain whether she still needs benefits and am thinking ahead to this afternoon's semi-annual meeting with The Neurologist in Pasadena, hoping that she'll be in a better position to help ME get Sophie's medication added to Anthem's formulary so that I won't have to go to Vancouver, even though a trip away by myself in Vancouver is alluring.
There's a Mother-Son dance tonight, the culmination of Cotillion, and I'm kind of, sort of, hoping that Oliver will decide that he doesn't want to go. Because it's all too much. Then again, racing back from The Neurologist in Pasadena just in time to change my clothes to be squired around by my handsome youngest son is probably the brightest spot in an otherwise cockamamie schedule.
What are you up to, today?
