Scholar Owl graduated last night! He earned himself a public high school diploma through the Adult Education program here in Maine’s education system. Continue reading “Scholar Owl’s Graduation”
It started with Little Bear last Monday, followed by Tuxedo Cat that Friday. Then my parents got it and yesterday I was hit with it – hard. (Didn’t realize until today that the reason my family has always used the term “creeping crud” for illness that spreads to everyone is because it’s military slang. Kind of amusing.)
Little Bear had a med clinic appointment yesterday. No med changes were made other than being told that I can go back to using Benadryl as a sleep aid for him. Which is what I did since without it he’s up until 2am or so.
Sorry I’m ridiculously late with the playlist this time around. Since this is the time of year that public school is starting back up again, I decided to pick out a set of fairly chill (not metal) songs that celebrate the weekend to relax with.
This is what we came up with at my therapist’s office earlier this week for Scholar Owl’s Health/PE elective this year for improving his skills in managing his Bipolar symptoms. It is set up to use the clinical numeric scale and aimed to be user friendly for those who aren’t used to mood trackers.

Yesterday was the first day of public school and everything went well EXCEPT the bus ride home. Tuxedo Cat got on the wrong bus home from the high school so he didn’t get home until 4pm. Apparently this year there is switching of buses involved and he not only got on the wrong bus to start with, but also switched to the wrong bus at the switch point. Thankfully the bus garage people were super polite with me when I called and were right on top of it to locate which bus he was on to get him home.
I failed to fill out the mood tracker chart this week but I can say I’ve been in good spirits despite being busy and feeling like my sleep has been wonky.
The weekend is upon us and I almost forgot to post my music selection for the week. My playlist this time around is centered on the themes of believing, never giving up, and sticking together.
I’ve been bugging out over getting the homeschool portfolio put together and mailed in on time and hoping to get the determination letter back on time, etc. – not to mention trying to reach them about the late fee for that when they sent out a newsletter notifying parents that there are two group portfolio review dates remaining at the end of this month.
So this morning I’ve been thinking about how I haven’t even started putting together that damn homeschool portfolio and wondering why that is. The med clinic was even kind enough to write a note for us to put in it about how we have been working together to get Scholar Owl stabilized and this may be a contributing factor in his work performance regarding getting assignments completed. Because really we have reached a do or die point here. He is out of time in making up the work. I can’t wait for him any longer. I have to get this portfolio together and get it sent out and just let the chips fall.
