We are doing well! Sam has her Christmas concert for school tonight. She is very very excited about it. It will be held at our local high school, Sickles @ 7pm. We leave for Disney on Sunday and will be coming back on Christmas Eve so she can sing @ 4pm Mass. It should be a very exciting and fun next few weeks for both Sammi & Matthew who will be out of school until Jan 6th!
Sam is still struggling with sleeping through the night, anxiety and stomach issues but I think that will probably be ongoing for a bit.
Matt is doing ok, he has his issues as well - mostly anger and striking out towards anyone...me, his BFF, his sister...doesn't seem to matter too much who, but we are working on Sam & Matt's issues at therapy and hoping that 2009 will bring some much needed results for both of them.
Work is good, still working the 2 jobs and between the 2 of them am up over 40 hours a week trying to make up for so much time out of work. I am thankful that I have that opportunity... there are many not so lucky. Day to day is a struggle for me but looking at and spending time with the kids makes it all worth while. I have to remind myself to do like we did for so many months...live day to day...and be thankful for it!
Wishing you all a safe, happy and blessed holiday season....
