Briggs did something he has never done before today. He is playing pretend. He is putting his fake food away in his own kitchen, separated the food that would need to go in the fridge if it was real AND PUT IT IN THE REAL FRIDGE.

I know it sounds silly to be so happy about it but playing pretend was something he couldn't do before and was one of the many reason why the doctor was concerned about him possibly being special needs. Well, kid now plays pretend and even started playing with other kids recently which he also didn't do before. This makes me so happy that at least, even if he has some special needs, he is developing despite it being behind others. He seemed to stuck there for awhile. I'm so happy.

Briggs is just purely a special spirit

I love how unique he is. He's my first child so its hard for me to say if he is typical or not as I don't really know what is. He certainly is a free spirit and I love how he seems to view things differently than a lot of other children do. I do want to make sure though that if he does have a special need I can learn new skills to better be there for him

I got a hefty gift card as part of my promotion, and I wanted to get something that would help both businesses... so I finally invested in a refurbushed Acer Iconia tablet. Mostly for work, but for a bit of play, too.

Interview went decently, I should hear back over the next week or two. It takes a whole for them to get you in an actual position at a school. She's sending me an application in the mean time.

I only work 3 days next week. Hells yes! And I'm off fri, sat, sun this week.

Getting taken to my favorite middle eastern restaurant tomorrow night.

And the guest speaker at last night's writers' workshop can -- and says she's glad to -- show me a road map for making internet writing pay. She also belongs to the Guild, and to one of the groups within the Guild that I've been thinking about joining.

I got the job I interviewed for last week! Which means I can leave the stress of my vet tech job. It's really bittersweet actually. But this job is as an assistant instructor for a before/after school program at an elementary school. We'll see what happens! Dixies Mom, sounds like the same kind of job you're going for? Good luck

Something, maybe, could be happening in the the not so distant future...if the stars align just the right way. We'll see!
