Playing Hooky

J had an appt. with her psychiatrist this morning. This is an all day event as it 1 1/2 hours each way, plus the time in the waiting room, etc. Since I had only started J on the Abilify last Friday night there was no sense in going to the appointment. I had already scheduled the time off from work so I played hooky and stayed at home with J.

8 days of math lessons, 3 history lessons and 4 days of Language Arts were accomplished. 5 assessments that were all graded at 100%. No power struggles, meltdowns or bad attitudes. Yeah! It might never happen again but I sure did enjoy today.

Any ideas how a single mom can make a living at home?

I played hookie today too! I went to a 2 hour training, and then took the rest of the day off, and had lunch and a spa day with a friend!

So much needed.

Have you noticed any changes yet with the Abilify.. May I ask, does your daughter have BiPolar?
Our J does and he is on Depakote and Seroquel...he isnt really doing any different..just wondering.

I am so happy for you!!!

You really deserve to have a day like that!

I hope there are many, many more!

You've inspired me. I think I'm going to play hookie today as well. The only thing that I can get out of doing is housework. So that's what I'll do. I'll ignore the house for the whole day.

I wish I had some good ideas for moms to work at home. I wouldn't mind doing something myself. It would just have to not involve going to do "parties" in other people's homes.

Thanks Lisa for the encouragement.

Hey Lisa,

I played hookie too...though not by choice. I was busy throwing up...grrr...

I'll be in touch tomorrow. Sorry I missed you! I must've been:

1. Asleep
2. Puking

Thinking of you!
