|It's a Good Life|
I had the worst day ever yesturday. The fourth was okay. Not the greatest.
So my hubby had off the Fourth and the fifth. We decided to to go the barracks for the Fourth of July celebration after we went car shopping. We ended up spending all day at the car dealership, waiting around. THey only wanted to give us 2500 back for our Chevy HHR as a trade-in. It is worth 8 grand when you sell it privately. My husband was furious. Then we got screwed over, having to wait all day and they couldn't do anything for us in the end bc all the banks were closed. I was like, why have a sale on the Fourth of July if you can't sell any cars anyway??
So we left there at around 4:30 no closer to gettting the new prius we want. we went right to the base. Hoobastank was playing when we got there but it was so crowded I couldn't enjoy any of it. We bought tickets for rides and food but the lines were so long for the rides that we literally spent all our time in one line. So my kids rode one dinky ride. They liked it but as soon as they got off they wanted to ride a pony. We looked at that line and said there was no way we were waiting in that line.
Samya started crying and TOsh was giving us a time too. We got them some cotton candy and went home. our neighbors said they were throwing a lil get together so we went over across the street for the rest of the night. My husband got drunk again and puked in the street. I wasn't happy. I also told them I was pregnant bc they kept offering me alcohol. My neighbors are nice and were excited for me. They promised to get me everything I need for the new baby and throw me a baby shower. Riiiiight. That'll never happen although it'd be nice since I don't have anything for babies anymore.
Guess I'll have to just buy all our new baby stuff second hand and dip into our savings to do so. Boo.
Oh well. I am excited for baby too but it is weird telling ppl bc I am only a few weeks along. They always ask how far I am and I'm not even past the first tri-mester. I just have to stop telling people I've decided. Not like I just walk up to people and say Hey I'm pregnant!
Anyway, So like I said the Fourth was a long day and kinda annoying. we didn't even see any fireworks. So the dealership promised they would call the next day. well we called them finally on Thursday bc we were tired of waiting to hear back from them. At the end of the day they finally told us that they got a rate of 9.8 for the loan interest which is not as low as I wanted. Our payments will be about a hundred more than we are paying now. I was not happy but we had no better offers from the banks. Plus they are screwing us over as far as the trade-in value goes so we're doubley screwed by them. Then they tell us we can't come pick up the car until Satruday bc the main finance guy is off on Friday (today). So we have to wait till Saturday to pick it up. I am planning on going to the arts and crafts for as long as I need on Saturday, not really planning on spending my whole day at the stupid car dealership again. Plus there is a end of the summer reading program party that I want my husband to take the kids too. They have been doing thier summer reading so they deserve a party and it gives them something to do while I'm at the arts and crafts building.
Yesturday was just sitting around, feeling lousey, waiting for stupid people to call. We waited forever to hear about the car. We didn't have much to do. I felt sick all day. Plus I've been off my depression meds for a few weeks now so I was bummed for no aparent reason. well i got a call from the lady at Samya's school.
She started school on Thursday. I was so proud of her. I took her in at 8am and stayed with her while she colored a picture of herself and had to write her name on it. I was horrified when I found out the other kids could write their own names knowing that Samya could not. She still can't sing all of the ABC's by herself or identify all the letters. But I needn't worry bc they practiced tracing thier names and she is getting better I am hoping at the same speed as the other children. SHe didn't cry or whine at all when I left her. She did great!
Anyways, I dropped off this paper for Tosh at Samya's school requesting an evaluation for him. I got it from the doctors I took him to before at Tripler hospital. I got a call back that day from the Special Education teacher and she asked me a bunch of questions. I talked to her about tosh for a while. She said that she would contact the speech therapist and the pre=school teacher to conduct an interview with me about Tosh. THen if they felt like he needed an evaluation that they'd give him one within 60 days. Then they'd come up with an Individual Education Plan to get him caught up to where he should be at his age. THe whole conversation just scared me bc I was thinking he's going to be labeled as Special Ed. Then I thought it probably doesn't matter as much when he's not in school yet bc none of his peers will see that he's behind. Hopefully he will be all caught up by the time he reaches Kindergarten.
I just don't like the label of Special Education.
We went out to dinner at blazing steaks probably bc my husband felt bad for me, moping around the house all day, and bc it's cheap. we ate out, it was the only time all day I'd gotten out of the house. Then we came home and watched The Grey. I have never seen and commercial for it so I didn't know what to expect. It was not a good movie. So depressing and gorey. I don't recommend it.
So it was a horrible ending to a horrible day. Hopefully today will be better. Already seems to be since Samya is amazing in school again this morning. I don't know what I'm going to do today since I've got all this time on my hands with nothing to do till tomorrow. I am feeling sick even as I type even tho I ate a nutri-grain bar and some orange juice this morning. My stomach never seems to be happy with this baby!
well i hope you all have some fun for me. have a good day! -me
