dyk and Ellie saw a witch --- face painted green and she was scared and cried after staring at her for a long long time

dyk there are no scary costumes allowed and hers wasn't "really" scary but... the face painting was realistic lol

dyk I started the NOV thread yesterday but November actually snuck up on me

dyk Abi has an appt on monday -- but I never did her bloodwork

dyk so I am moving that appt

dyk and we may not need an appt really if her blood levels are still good, we can just go next month to our reg check up

dyk in other news, half the food order came in (we ordered bulk through Kroger and Walmart b/c we were ordering 250 of each item)

dyk my friend Steph delivered it this morning to the Dream Center

In addition to more than 75 coats and 24 backpacks, this is DELIVERY 1 of 2 of food to feed 250 families at Thanksgiving, purchased with proceeds from the charity garage sale!!!! WOW!!!

dyk that's sad that Halloween was cancelled. :-( But probably a very safe, sound decision.

dyk I'm glad you're able to check in.

dyk all our NJ family is safe and sound. They do not live at the immediate coast.

dyk around laundry and school emails and teacher calls (Dek's teacher, update in a sec), I am painting my niece Lexi -- the baby

dyk she's sitting in a rocking chair in a "garden"

dyk I am SO pleased with how it's turning out

dyk it's been nice to have something to do instead of just housework constantly --- when I did the first wash, then it needed to dry so I did some laundry, then shadowed Lexi, then it needed to dry, so I did the dishes, etc

dyk the xanax I took this morning after a VERY rough start to the day has helped too -- I take 1/4 a table lol

dyk I don't need much

dyk the teacher phone call was to chat about the email I sent her

dyk a few things he's been doing are explained by new systems in the classroom -- but today is a "red flag" day at school --- meaning even if I hadn't emailed her, she would have called me to see what was up.

dyk we got a few things works out, both agreeing that he may just be newer to blends and sounding out than we realized given that he has so many sight words memorized but with the irlen, never learned to blend last year and was just memorizing words.

dyk so now that words are harder and new and need to be sounded out -- he's not very good at it yet

dyk and she said other than those few tests, he has a slew of 100's and his grade in language IS actually an A and she goes, "He is an A student."

dyk I agree, he is.
