Stuff ...

I am feeling very confused and sad at the moment. I cannot tell if it is regarding relationships with B, with k, seasonal, or otherwise situational.

I went today to the memorial service of this friend.

Otherwise I am spending all of my time in relationship with k or with B and seeing R (who had a birthday yesterday) and J frequently. I feel like I am helping a lot of families (mainly B's and k's) with things like helping with childwatching, getting to the airport on time, household cleaning tasks, and other stuff.

Maybe it is a feeling of not being recognized enough but that does not seem right either, now that I have typed it.

Anywhay I am still feeling sad and somewhat "insecure", I guess.

How are you all feeling ?

I have some info that might be of interest to you, but I'd rather discuss it in person...

Email me. I don't think I have yours. (bequiATsofthomeDOTnet)

I'm okay. Stressed. How have the kids been doing?

It is good to hear from you.

J is slowly dealing with his feelings regarding my "sudden" multiple relationships. He shares some train commonalities with k's younger child which is good. J however is also upset by changes in the school routine. Next year he loses both the security of his elementary school as well as the assistance of his long term Instructional Assistant whom he has had and known for the past five years.

R is seemingly more flexible. He still has a great deal of friends at his school and seems happy. His birthday was yesterday. He was sound asleep (on the floor) yesterday when I visited. Fortunately J now has learned to step over R's prone body even if a "war video" is on the TeVo.

R is having some trouble learning how to read. We are working on that.

I hope your currently "Stressed" feeling is not to much and that it is resolved to your liking.

Re: Hello
I miss those kids! I still have very fond memories of that summer. You know how it goes--there were some bad times, but as more time passes, the bad fades away and we are left only with good memories.

I remember R having some trouble learning to read, when I was attempting to help him that summer. How is J with his times tables? :) I remember that being a point of contention!

My stressed feeling will be much better once finals are over--thank you for your concern. I hope your drama resolves itself, as well!

Re: Hello
I am glad that you have fond memories of the kids. I am happy about this.

Yes, R continues to struggle with reading.

J is apparently doing great with his academics. He however still feels left out within the social realms. I have been attempting to visit him often when he is in school at class. I have some concerns that because the Full Inclusion Teacher modifies J's homework that his progress may be artificially elevated. He still struggles with doing his homework at home so even though I have concerns, I do not have any better solutions. I do not know how this will translate when he graduates into junior high school.

Meanwhile k's two children are 3 and 4 years old while B's child seems to do well with my minimal assistance with homework and just received a positive report card.

Would it work for you to prune back your "helping people" time a little, and take care of yourself? Helping is fabulous, but can be exhausting, too.

I'm sorry you're feeling so bad.
