Fall meanderings

The old, summer’s just about over post—-

I love fall.  I am always eager for it to come.  But for some reason I hardly got to enjoy summer this year.  I was working all the time.  Finally took this week off mostly, though I can scarcely (well, I can’t at all) afford it.  But I had tons of paperwork to do and needed some time to do it.  I did test today for a new company and hope I passed.  I’ll start working a lot next week once school starts.

I think our biggest issue right now is this decision to put Chris in residential.  He has become so hard to handle as far as, we can’t let him outside because he might go in the creek (he’s forced his way over there the last few times we took a walk with him) and then it’s limited where we can take him when we go away because of not being able to stop him when he wants something, whether it’s some passer-by’s drink or whatever.

We do take him grocery shopping and stuff and did have a really nice outing like that last weekend.

But an opening came up for a nice group home and we did apply for him.  I am just praying if it’s meant to be it will all work out, and if it’s not supposed to happen that it will be blocked.

It’s hard though as there’s guilt involved and so much emotion.

I’ll update more on all this soon —-

First, after taking tons of pics like this with my camera phone, Which he really wasn’t supposed to to do but got away with it as much as possible anyway , Ryan lost the battery to my camera phone. This explains why I’ve had no August pictures.
