Much Improved

Things around our house are much improved. A huge thanks to Gerri & Texas Mary. I couldn't have gotten through it without you. Big things happened around our household that can't be blogged about but everyone came out in one piece and a huge step forward has happened. Possibly even 2 or 3 steps forward....

J worked unbelievably hard in AT yesterday. Undeniably the hardest she's ever worked. Zero yucky choices in school. This is a first! In AT she said (by her own volition) that she wanted to give up her anger and the thing that she wanted to work on the most was her anger. At the beginning of school she did the Secret Inside My Head workbook and she brought it to AT which she processed about half of it before we moved on to other things. We'll work on the other half next week. I really wanted her to work on the Volcano book but didn't find it in time. After she processes this book we'll move on to the Volcano book. I've just been putting this off for so long and it's time to pony up to the table and get with it.

Reiki on Tuesday night with Chris for whom I am eternally grateful. She helps me see the light at the end of the tunnel. A sea salt/baking soda bath and bedtime stories. J earned her American Girl magazine yesterday and boy was she excited.

To Daddy G's office after AT where she was able to play "The Boss" (for a limited time folks...). Sitting in his chair and answering the phone, "This is the Big Boss. What can I do to help you?" You KNOW being the radish that she is that she had the BEST time with this. Gave up play time at home for a while just to be "The Boss". G & I talked about her working a couple of hours a day in the mail room when she is 9/10 during the summer so that she can start working her way up the ladder. ;-) She LOVES sorting mail!

Tonight more Reiki and keep taking steps forward.....and hopefully not too many back.

It sounds VERY good. I am not familiar with the Volcano or Secrets inside my Head. I'll have to check into them.
