I couldn't cash today's check at their bank because it is a credit union in SoCal. Blast. Tomorrow I should get enough from watching the AmazingA that the two checks together will get my account out of the red. Out of the red is a good place to be. I need quarters for the laundry!
KidFour remains very quiet. She will answer when directly addressed, but otherwise rather ostentatiously Is Not Speaking To Me. Tomorrow is her appt with the psychologist. I hope that helps her sort things out. Her appt starts half an hour before I return the AmazingA to her mother, so she and I can go spend a little while in the playground after we drop KidFour at the doctor's office.
Today KidThree and I went to a support group for SCI people. Last week was our first time; we only found out about it a week or so before that. Today there were four other SCI people there, all with varied causes of injury and degrees of damage. The loveliest person there was a man who was rendered a complete T10 at age 16; he has been in a chair now for fifty years. KidThree was thrilled to meet him--someone really could spend an entire life in a chair, and have it be a good life!! He is married, has children and grandchildren, and spent a full career as a school psychologist. What an incredible role model. We are going to be picking that lovely man's brain for years to come.
And now time to get some sleep before my day with the AmazingA.
