This week school pictures were delivered. This one is fuzzy because she took a picture of the pic and emailed it to me. I need to figure out how to scan the pic to the computer, then I'll have a better one. It's soooooo hard to believe she's 15. This coming week she will begin volunteering at the Children's Institute as a "Buddy" to an autistic child. The program is conjunction with her high school and the institute. Kristi and other classmates will spend time with these kids 2 times a month. They will go during the school day and work with their "buddy" in school activities. It'll be quite the experience for her.
Well......weather is cruising downhill or rather the temps are cruisin in a downward fashion. Rain/snow showers are expected on Tuesday. No accumulation has been predicted so we'll see. The temps will be borderline on freezing for the low. :cold:
Thanks to Ms. Asha, I have a cool bag to carry things in when I go up and down the steps. One step closer to independence. Today, for laundry day, I went downstairs to help sort laundry. I was surprised that Crystal didn't come and watch cos she usually has to snoop when we're in the same room. Then again, it's colder down there this time of year - poor kitty. If she'd let herself be covered we'd get her a sweater and booties but that ain't gonna happen with The Princess - no way - no how!! :nana:
There is no Steeler game to report "boohoo" as they're playing on Monday Night Football. I've been practicing staying up later so I don't have problems getting up the steps after the game. I can yell for Kristi if I have problems but that's part of the independence thing......after we first moved in, I went upstairs when she went to bed so I had her help if needed. Granted, there are times I'm ready to turn in early but there are times I'm not. So....I have graduated - Yeah Me :i_did_it!: . It is amazing how we tend to forget the little accomplishments we have after we've been at this for a period of time.
