Default Derrick's first day, and then the rest of life

Derrick starts back at Purdue today. I think I'm probably more nervous
for him than he is. I know he will do great.

I have been busy with case conferences and meeting with parents.

Just life as usual it seems.

Oh gosh, heehee I thought I did.

I am forgetful with all my work things right now.

Derrick had a good day. He still doesn't know exactly what he is doing in the beginning. But that is fine. He has to get back to learning the things he
already knows.

He trained a new person on the things in the back which is what the kitchen is called I guess that he already knows on Tuesday. He always has Wednesdays off. So today is his second day.

He is all excited because starting next week he will ride the big bus home.
So he found out the girl he is training will be riding the same buses
he will. So he can ride with her if he just waits till she gets off. And that
is the plan. Unless he needs to be somewhere before she gets off.

So that is good. It was the one thing the training plan thought he
needed to change. To be more independent.

Well I had a great time with Derrick on Saturday in town.
Other than I seem to have lost my Money somewhere.
But that is life it seems once in a while. It was more than
I wanted to admit to losing. But luckily he had money.

And when I went to leave he let me have $6.00 so I would
have some so I wasn't without any for Sunday.

Good thing because I came home to a message that I was
needed to go down and pick up the young lady that stays
with me sometimes. She is having a rough time. And so I
did she doesn't have a lot of money. But that is okay.
I just buy her pops usually, and she then buys most things
else unless I'm buying supper or something.

Anyway she is staying with me a while and then going back
on Tuesday night, and going to her program. Her birthday is
Wednesday and I think she will get a surprise. Her sister put
it out on Facebook and I think some friends and family will
send her cards. And Derrick and I will celebrate with her tomorrow.

I have to take him for an EEG tomorrow so it makes it nice.
I also told her I'd help her get some food for her week too.
SO that is what we will do. And try and save her some money.

I am then going to Kokomo this next weekend to help my sisters,
I was worried about what to do with her. But someone just texted
her that they can't do anything with her till the weekend. So that
made it really good for me going away.

I'm glad that Derrick is doing well, and will be able to be a little more independent

It's so nice of you to take the girl in at times, and to help her out. You have such a kind heart

I'm hoping that things go well for you with your sisters this weekend.

Thanks, ladies. At times I think I do pretty good keeping up
with her. Today was one of those days. She lost her noon
medicine in a store and got really upset. I kept telling her that
calling and going back was the only thing we could do. Which
we did. And that she did a good job trying to find it.

She just kept melting down. And was so upset. It was adderall
and an anxiety med she took prn. And of course that she needed
after she got so upset.

But she finally calmed down, and had a good birthday lunch with
Derrick and I. And then we took Derrick home. It was getting
late. So I then started home with her. Well I had forgotten tomorrow
is her birthday, I had planned to buy her a birthday cake. Not really
knowing if anyone would. So I pulled into Meijers, and she wasn't
to happy, but apologized for getting upset. I wouldn't tell her right
away why we were there. But then I said, well its something to do
with tomorrow, she says you mean my birthday, I said yes. So
she perked up. And was ready. SO then she was trying to guess.

I said, what do you usually get on your birthday. She says a cake
really excited. I said, well I thought since your mom can't buy one
I thought I'd do it. So she was excited, and helped me find her one.

She was then looking through them all, and finding what she wanted.
She got a Oreo one. And some fancy Cupcakes. ANd then we
got some treats for work tomorrow also.

She was really excited and happy.

So it was nice.

Donna

Only problem with the day in the end I lost my Mom's Mother ring.
So far I can't find it in my house. I'm pretty sure I had it at home so
hopefully I'll find it later.

I really hope that you find that ring soon. It must have a lot of sentimental value

I'm so happy that that little girl has your support. It sounds like she needs it. You aren't just being kind, Donna. I'm sure that you are making a difference in her life
