I HAVE been away from my blog in a long time....

Life just gets in the way doesn't it.

Where I stored all of my soapmaking supplies was flooded, TONS of items ruined and I haven't had the heart to replace anything or to even make anything since then. I even had someone else clean up the area because it was too depressing for me to even so that.

Knitting, well that is a horse of a different color. I took a break from that too because of my life. I JUST got back to it again for the umpteenth time. I have been being boring and just making simple hats for co-workers. Various shades, various, yarns, etc. to try to get that creative energy flowing.

Miss Sunshine is doing as well as to be expected. She is still at the school that offers the ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) services. She still has prize winning moments and as my mom puts it, becomes unplugged often. Her team of specialists (BSC, TSS, MT, Speech) really work at helping her and me with getting Miss Sunshine to function daily. It Can be exhausting but, it does have its rewards.

With all this, The Princess has shown so colors and has been diagnosed with ODD (oppositional defiance disorder) and Impulse control issues. She had to be removed from her regular school and now attends a behavior support class. Her IQ is still off the charts so the school district offers her more of a 1-on-1 education daily and sends her to a gifted program 2.5 hours a week.

I have done a lot of escapism in the form of reading non-stop. Books, fan-fiction, the princess's writings... keeps my mind in an alternative world.

Work exists and keeps me busy and the girls do come there twice a week while I work so it helps.

Perhaps I will have more to post here soon. Perhaps not but, I just wanted tog et some thoughts down for now.
