Happy New Year
I love this year – 2010. It just looks so new and fresh and promising.
Today I got some money I’ve been expecting, so now I can move out of this rat-hole we’ve been living in for the last 6 months. The Palisades in Bellevue Washington. Without exception, the worst place I’ve ever lived. I’ll make a separate blog post about it, because I don’t want to drag down this one.
I didn’t do much today for a change. I’ve been working constantly – just launched a huge project, plus keeping all my other regular clients happy. I have new potential clients I’m discussing details with, so business is not just holding but improving.
Charlie is still having trouble at school, but he’s doing better than he ever has. And for the first time he is in a program/place with people who truly understand his problems and seem to know how to handle them. His teacher claims to really love him in class, despite the challenges he brings. She’s probably only the 2nd special ed teacher he’s ever had who not only understands and cares but has what it takes to reach him.
That being said, even though I detest living in Bellevue, I’m going to make sure we stay in Bellevue when we move so that he can stay in his current school/class/situation. That actually shows how much I think of the teacher/program he has now – because I seriously want out of Bellevue. Fortunately we can move to right up to the Redmond/Kirkland side and still have his school as the home school. Then I can just shop and do errands in Redmond and Kirkland and avoid Bellevue for the most part.
I’ve really enjoyed Facebook lately. I don’t like its interface as much as other platforms. But for some reason it’s really popular, and I’ve been able to connect and really re-acquaint myself with a large number of my graduating high school class. I’m sure a reunion in person would be great – a whole other element to see each other face to face. But this adds so much more. I get a glimplse into their daily lives, pics of them and their families, a daily feed of what is important in their lives, what they do for a living, etc. It’s interesting to see how people have grown and what they’ve done with their lives in the nearly 25 years since we’ve graduated.
I guess that is enough spewing via the keyboard for one day. I have to go check Facebook…
