everyone I know has a head cold

Seriously, everyone I know, I think. Everyone in the house, everyone at my mother's house, everyone at work. It needs to stop now. Haven't really been posting much because Jupiter has been having some great afternoon naps this week. Which is great until its 9pm or 10pm, or 11pm (last Friday) and she can't go to sleep. A schedule that's a little hard on Mom's waking up at 4am. A schedule which is going to change in a few more months when school starts in the fall.

Speaking of which, I have a CDS meeting tomorrow afternoon to discuss/determine what services Jupiter may qualify for. I have prepared 8 pages of information/input/whatever you want to call it. And I made copies for whoever is invited to this meeting. Other than what I've prepared, I'm not really sure what to expect out of this meeting.

Spring has made it to Maine. I noticed coming home the other day that the lawns are greening up, and the maple trees are bursting into red buds, and the willow trees have a green tinge. This weekend we're scheduled for a ministretch of summer weather. I will open all the windows at an attempt to banish head cold germs. The baby plants are growing in the windows...tomatoes, peppers, and basil. Jupiter is putting her strong muscles to work helping me turn over the soil in the garden beds. She was a little disappointed when I told her that digging in the garden was actually a chore and not just for fun...guess I should have kept that little secret. I'm sitting on my CSA application because as much as I want to join for this year, the knowledge of paying out of pocket for sensory camp, the heating oil prepay, and possibly keeping Jupiter enrolled in preschool 2 days a week over the summer (which don't get me wrong, I'm happy to pay for it if she can receive in classroom services though the summer)...there's always plenty of places for the money to go. I forgot to check my megabucks ticket today...I'm not a lottery junkie but once in a while I feel exceptionally lucky and donate a dollar. It might work...
