We've had a busy week getting ready for the new school year. Little Guy is geared up for his senior year, and Big Kid and I are all registered for the fall semester at college.
I got Big Kid right into the doc's immediately after he got home a couple of weeks ago, to try to find something different (that won't make him manic) for his ADHD. The doc started him on a med that isn't traditionally used for this (it's a wakefulness medication used to treat sleeping disorders like narcolepsy).
I was doubtful.
And boy was I wrong.
It's amazing. He's totally focused----he had a driving lesson last week and his instructor said she could see 150% difference in his concentration and confidence. He went and filled out a bunch of job applications and had his first interview yesterday. They asked him to come back tomorrow for a second one. The best part is that there has been absolutely no manic rebound at night---rage or sadness---whatsoever.
I'm afraid to jinx it, but I'm starting to be very very hopeful.
In other news, blogging friends Carm and Kim welcomed Christopher Thomas into the world yesterday! Mom and baby are doing great. If you get a chance, drop by and offer your congrats!
I want to extend a big BIG thank you to Flamenco Mom for posting her Sofrito recipe. Just goes to show that Gluten-Casien-free cooking doesn't have to be boring. I can't wait to try it! Spicy meatballs, here I come!
Leaving you today with a snicker: Reasons NOT to hyphenate your Name. Like Butts-McCracken and Busch-Rash. ;-)
Have a great day!!
