The good news for this week is that Alex won't need speech therapy. He had his evaluation and he is on track for a 3 year old. So that is a relief. I haven't wanted to post because of how I've been feeling. The medication was doing what it was suppose to until I had to up the dosage. I was fine in the beginning of the week but I've had a headache for the last 2 days. Hopeful this will end soon. The layoffs happened so that's on my mind. It sucks having to be here again. I've been trying really hard to payoff the credit cards and to try to save some money. I've been hoping to move on up for the last 10 years. This old house is just too small for 6 people and a dog. The kids need room for play and these old house weren't designed with that in mind. The bedrooms are about the size of some of my relatives walk in closets. I know I shouldn't complain. We have more than a lot of people. We are at the moment in good shape financially. The bigger house fund just gets turned into the emergency fund. The severance package was fair. Hopefully, a new job will be found before that ends and we need to tap into the reserves. I'm just bummed. And worried. I keep reading about smart talented people being out of work for 6 months or more.

I was reading a blog and the mommy/author wrote about how her dog pooped in the bathtub. That reminded me of when Martha did the same thing. The family and I made the 4th trip to Disney World in 9 years. My sister was our doggy sitter. She told me that overnight, Martha had managed to break the wooden baby gate and had used the tub as her bathroom. She had never done anything like that before. Martha is fine with us, but she has some issues.
