And It Continues

Still no word on Little One's tests. He has a well check on the 28th, so I'm guessing I'll hear then. Hopefully that means nothing major???

Today was another long day. Girlie woke with a cough and fever. With her asthma history I kept her with me today. We brought some toys to my school and she did great there. Got a lot done, though it still looks like SO much to do. Still no desk or filing cabinet moved into my room. No chairs. After picking Braeden up from day care, found out he watched Shrek today. It's rated PG and is NOT appropriate for little ones. He watched Sponge Bob the day before. When I talked to them in the spring, I was told one hour of tv per week, and that they watched Disney movies. I will talk to them tomorrow I guess, I hate having to, I hate "confrontation." Got a message on my cell while I was out of my room, at 2:23 asking where to pick up Girlie for her 3:00 visit. Yea, what visit? No one told me anything about a visit for today. I called him back at 2:50 saying as much and that she was with me today. He apologized for no one letting me know - whatever - and came to get her. After they returned I asked if she visited with the aunt again today like last week. He said, no, not anymore. Which means to me that she won't be going back there, but I'm sure it's not "official" yet. ??? Once we were all finally home and I was getting dinner ready, the sitter I had lined up for Sunday during the Wiggles, our only real sitter, called to say she was sorry she was letting me know so late, but she can't babysit Sunday. My friend J doesn't want to, because it would mean putting her 4 year old in the back of her mini van and she doesn't want to have to climb back to buckle and unbuckle. I called a family with 3 teens who sometimes will sit if I'm in a lurch, but they're going to Chicago that day. I called another who has sat for us, but her step-grandma is fighting cancer and probably not going to make it. I'm going to ask tomorrow at Girlie's day care because sometimes people there will sit off time. I've had kids there previously and know all the people well. Will this week ever end???

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
