Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner! Can you believe it?! Punkindoodle and BOO are SOOOO excited about the Halloween decorations that are popping up in the stores, I can't even tell you! My son (who is mostly non-verbal) wrapped himself in my yoga mat on Friday and told my husband that he wanted "up". He then proceeded to "chainsawintobat", translation "change into a bat" :). Hubby and I teared up at how cute he was flapping my yoga mat...
Well, I sincerely, sincerely apologize to those of you who were waiting for some exciting new items in this month's PFATT release. The construction crew is STILL not finished with my basement (err!) and all of my art supplies are buried in the mountain of Boo's therapy stuff in the garage. You know, it has been a wonderful summer, but there have been so many things going on with my son's health. To give you an idea, I spent two afternoons this last week seeing doctors. One afternoon in a meeting with the school nurse (we are trying an hour of school a day), and an hour and half waiting at the pharmacy for yet another Rx; Boo hasn't been able to sleep more than an hour or two a night lately. I'm afraid that all of it may be zapping my creativity a little too, as I have several pieces sitting in boxes in different stages. On top of it all, we have a meeting at the Children's Hospital at the end of this month. Several specialists and researchers will give us a final report on all of the testing that has been done in the last three months, and while I am taking it in stride, I think it is weighing on me more than I like to admit. So once again, please accept my apologies! I am very hopeful that things will get back on track and that my new studio space and Boo's new therapy room will be done very soon!
So the "up" side of all of this is that I have been getting out and running more! Mostly to escape that constant hammering and drilling in my house (err!) and to clear my head. As a result, crazy woman that I am, I signed up for Race for the Cure and the Colorado Wild Woman Duathlon! Wish me luck, I am a little nervous!
