The blog suffers.
I have been away from Bakers Love now for what seems like a decade in the blogsphere. To be honest I have not been keeping up with Facebook or Twitter either. So what is going on you ask? Well, a few things. First is that I have a class this month, and after a few months hiatus from the rigorsof school, I am having a tough time focusing on all of my assignments. That is small potatoes though, in a few weeks that class will be over and I get to move on.
Secondly, Rex has hit a rough patch. When Rex hits a rough patch, we all hit the rough patch to a certain degree. About a month ago he had an extremely bad day at school that snowballed into a horrendous day which resulted in an alternative placement at a school for kids with emotional needs that can not be met at a traditional school. I will give more details on that later. The transition to this new school has been different, but for me mostly. I can't help but feel like I missed 'SOMETHING' and could be more helpful to my son. There is guilt that I am not doing enough combined with the guilt that I have for wishing I could have a life outside of counseling appointments, IEP meetings, and talks with teachers, neighbors, and strangers when my son does something odd. But right now, this day, he seems okay. WIth Rex, and all kids with Aspergers, everyday is different. There is always a calm before the storm.
So, that in a nut shell is why I have been away. Sure I have baked a few goodies, usually to make myself feel better, but did I have the thought to take a picture? Nope. I suppose THINKING of taking a picture does not really count now does it? I can't even remember what I made! What a scramble my brain has become!
