Good day today…
In both sessions (60 mins), we did about 15 minutes worth of fencing and I think it was AWESOME for them both, I am going to try to use basic fencing lessons for almost all of my older kids at least once. Plus it wore them out to get them ready for table-top activities.
The body schematics kid has a tremor when he writes which is interesting – his family swears he has neuro issues but the neurologists haven't found anything…I'd agree with the family though.
The frustration tolerance kid worked on shoe-tying with me…which frustrated him but we did it on a timer session…and we had just finished writing up a list of things to do when you're angry. I need to watch a session or ask my OT to give me some tips on shoe-tying lessons. I was pretty old before I learned how. 😡
I met Allison to walk at track and then we had Taco Bell for dinner since we both were able to spare the calories as it was almost 9 pm and I'd only had 300 calories for the day, and she is a skinny minny on her feet all day who then went to cardio kickboxing and then walked with me. 🙂
Now it's almost 10pm. I'm going to shower and figure out the Google-maps for all our kids tomorrow….we found out today we are not treating them all tomorrow but rather doing Medicaid evals on them all, Christy was disheartened at the paperwork but what I did today was print out the eval and plan of care forms for all of them (with the basic form intact but no info), so that we can write the eval answers out in pen in order and do them as we go…and since there is two of us and it's home visits to individuals, one of us can be writing the information down, or I can drive and Christy can write goals, whatever. Because typing it into the computer is no big deal at all for me speed-wise if it's already intact on paper, so if we just write them out as we go it shouldn't be bad at all.
So the folders, evaluations, forms, etc, are ready to go…now it's a matter of google maps…so will be back in 20 to work on that. Gonna be a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG day tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!
