Autumnal Equinox

Having some friends and readers, I wish them a Happy Autumnal Equinox.  For the rest of my readers and my family, Happy Fall Y'all!  Either way, today is the first day of fall.  The day when the hours of light and darkness is equal in hours and minutes.  It is the mark on the calendar when we get ready to pull out the rakes, inspect the snow blowers (in those areas that need it) and put cooking spray on the shopping list for the snow shovels in preparation for the upcoming winter.

For us, it means we continue to sit and wait until the insurance company comes through and work can continue on our home.  The stress got too much for me and I did finally go to the doctor.  I got put on sertraline which will take a couple of weeks to take effect.  It is a short term thing to get me through this.  The doctor doesn't see me on it for more than a few months.  I feel like I have let myself down and God down.  That I am having to rely on a drug to get me through a tough time when I don't suffer from a chemical imbalance or head trauma or chronic depression or whatever.

I know God is with me and will (and is) seeing me through this.  But it is still hard.  But I also know that it would be a lot harder without Him by my side.  Anyway, to discuss the rest of the week.

The children have piano tomorrow.  Charlie read a story out of Great Myths and Legends today about a Blackfoot tribe.  It took him having to reread it several times for him to be able to answer our questions.

We also played a memory game, but instead of matching cards, they were synonyms.  Bethany joined it even though she didn't know what a lot of the words meant.  So each word was explained.

Charlie is not doing well at math again.  It is getting frustrating.  I know we struggle off an on and right now, the struggle is on.  I get annoyed with him when he plays dumb.  I know he knows this stuff, but he is acting like he doesn't.  Gaaaaah!

I am going to work with him 1:1 tomorrow a lot more closely.  Granted, this will be after I go to Rural King to pick up feed (yeah, we're doing RK feed right now which I don't like) then go to the house and milk and feed the animals.  I go in the morning and Husband goes at night.

We will get through this, we will get through this, we will get through this.  

Oh, and I got my laptop back and it still won't charge properly.  I got a lemon.
