This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

What's going on?

This is one I've seen floating around blogs recently.

Outside my window… sunshine, neighbor's falling down fence, bright green grass.
I am thinking… that I probably need to increase my anti-depressant again
I am thankful… for a loving husband, and a beautiful, healthy (physically) family.
From the kitchen… homemade cinnamon rolls!! I wish!
I am wearing… a big comfy Tigger t-shirt and jean shorts.
I am creating… a blog post about the PDH program Kitty is in.
I am going… crazy.
I am reading… "Step by Step Reiki." and "Because I said So" by Dawn MeehanI am hoping… that our finances turn around.
I am hearing… Marriage 911 on TV, and the cat snoring.
Around the house… all I can see is the clutter and mess.
One of my favorite things… sweet hugs and kisses and kisses from Ponito.
A few plans for the rest of the week… clean up the house, lots of therapy, put away laundry, therapeutic parenting, give Hubby some more attention, figure out ways for the family to spend more time together (Family Game Night on Thursdays? Company has to leave the house when we eat and by 8pm. Kids inside at 8pm. Park this weekend?).

Here is a “picture thought” I am sharing.

Edited to add: This is a variation on a Jackalope which is a mythical creature only found in TEXAS and surrounding areas. Jackalopes are a cross between Jack Rabbits and Antelopes. This one has a little partridge or quail added in (not sure which).

I thought I was the only one with a snoring cat :) You'd probably of laughed at the look I'm sure was on my face the first time I heard her too!
