Not Dead, Just Lazy

I'm still alive out here in the middle of nowhere, in case you were worried. As usual, things are moving at a lightening-quick pace here, and everything's happening at once.

That's not to say things aren't going well. Rosemary's Baby's full-time therapy program began last week, and I am absolutely amazed at what intensive interaction with another person can accomplish. While he has never been completely non-verbal, I have never heard this much spontaneous and appropriate language coming out of him! One big reason I haven't been online is that having someone here all day every day, and trying to learn the program to keep up my end of things takes up a lot of time and energy. But that will change when we get into our therapy groove.

And in other great news, we are finally approaching the end of the Captain's tour of duty! I can't give dates or locations for reasons of security, but there is a light at the end of this LONG tunnel, and thank goodness. I now understand why people drink!

Anyway, I just wanted to post an update in case any of you thought I'd offed myself. Hope you're all enjoying the same glorious weather we are!!

I was wondering what was going on since it had been a while since you posted. Glad to hear everything is fine, just busy.

Sounds like the therapy is going to work out- that's good news. And, yay to the prospective end of being a single parent operation!

Good to hear you're not dead! Great to hear about the new regime having some almost immediate effects - how encouraging!

Now, get off your backside and go and do some gardening, or sew somthing pretty, you lazy moo! LOL

Well hooray on all counts! I'm glad the therapy is working out so well and that himself will wander back home soon(ish)?!

I'm glad too, on both counts. Blogging is fun, and a good way to establish friendships, as I have discovered. But family and face-to-face are definitely more important!
Blessings!

I was beginning to get a little worried here! I hoped it was the new therapy just going on. I just love it when a plan comes together. Life is good!

Ummm, actually it had crossed my mind ...

I kid! Glad to hear that Captain Canada is homeward bound. Taking into consideration military speed and efficiency, you should see him ... what? Next spring?!?

Glad you're making so much progress with Rosemary's Baby! Fab news!! My poor DIL almost had a nervous breakdown when the "team" arrived to "desensitize" our autistic guy. It's not pretty but boy, does it work! The screams over hands in half-set Jello still hang in the air ...

Sending hugs!!

Great to hear life is well. Please keep us posted on everything, especially once your hubby is back home. (Although you'll be too busy to blog then!)
