Weekend Wrap-Up: it's Feb.!

I don't know why, but I'm kind of glad we're at the start of a fresh month.

Last week was predictably busy, but good.

Sylvia has made it into the Honors Society at school! She's very proud, as am I. While we certainly have our moments, she's doing really well.

Riley has also been getting good grades, and is being more responsible. She did totally work me the other day, though. We went to Target to pick up some supplies for her diorama (*sigh*) and she talked me into buying her a new binder. I first reminded her that we were only supposed to be buying the supplies, but then she said "but, Mommy, I want to be more oh-ganized." Oh, she's good!

Riley has her first therapy session tomorrow, and she's very excited about it. I think part of her recent positive changes are due to knowing that it's coming. (It was actually supposed to be last week, but her therapist got sick.) It took a while what with the holidays and getting back into the groove to finally get it on the schedule. Knowing Riley, she has a master plan of exactly what she wants to accomplish in her session and will be "cured" shortly thereafter.

We had a great, mostly relaxing weekend. I got to be a grown-up and see Christopher Durang's Why Torture is Wrong and the People who Love Them. SO funny! Nicholas Brendon is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors; this is the 3rd play I've seen him in, and every time, he impresses me. It was a really fun night.

The rest of the weekend was a nice balance of quality time on the couch and housework.

I was telling Huckdoll, it's so much harder for me to post when everything is going well!

I have no rants in me right now. I have no immediate needs that aren't being met. I don't even feel all that overwhelmed anymore.

I'm not even obsessing about some other shoe dropping. That's not to say that I expect to remain this content for the rest of my life. I just don't see any reason to needlessly worry about something that I cannot predict.

If nothing else, it'll provide for more interesting posts!

Nicholas Brendon from Buffy? Xander's doing theatre now?

Glad you seem to be in a calm place right now - enjoy it!

I'm liking the fact that it's a new month as well. Glad things are going so well and with no foreboding. I have a hard time with that myself.

I like that it is Feb too. Congratulations to Sylvia on the Honors Society! I think it's great that Riley is so excited about therapy, that girl has a good head on her shoulders.

Thats just what I was saying earlier! We tend to write more when things suck don't we!?

We should all make more of an effort to write when things are good!

Well, you may feel like you have nothing to write about but I like to come here and read you so content. I sense a ton of balance here, just like the title of your blog.
