Enter the Case Manager

I was at home having a voice lesson, yes I do sing for church and local plays. N is expecting one of her workers and I get a text from the worker saying she will be here in 10 minutes. Right around the time she would arrive there is a knock at the door. I... Continue Reading →

Happy Birthday M2

I am not by any means an emotional person. However yesterday I was in tears on and off because of the fact my baby turned 16. I was so overwhelmed with pride in her that I could not believe it. We had meetings to discuss job training so she can get a job. She started... Continue Reading →

Incredible Audacity

We have been homebound for a week and managing all right. M1 checks in when she has questions and to complain about her life but doesn't typically ask about the girls or how we are doing. She did ask today if we were getting COVID tested before quarantine ends, well she asked M2. Yesterday I... Continue Reading →

COVID Vacation

Christmas Tree Traditions

We put up the Christmas tree today despite the fact I am no where near the Christmas spirit. At first N was being a complete jerk, yelling what a bitch I am and refusing to help with anything. I reminded her that if she wanted to feel less like an outsider then participating in family... Continue Reading →
