Anthony is on fall break starting tomorrow, but thank God, he is going to Little Star every day. On Friday we took all four kids up to Little Star for a parents' night out and we went in and Anthony raced ahead and flung himself to the floor, he was so happy to be there. I feel excited for him, that he will be at a place all week that he likes so much.
Things are going okay, they are not great and we had a long weekend because his respite care girlfriend was off on Saturday, she was throwing a party for her daughter, who was turning two. But they are going okay, I mean, they are sometimes okay and sometimes hard but that is true with the girls, too. Felicity herself could drive a person to DRINK most days, and that honey badger is on break, too.
But as long as I stay in the present and just worry about today today and that's it, I'm okay. I can't worry about the future, even though it is tempting. Maria said today "when are we getting Anthony's dog?" and I said I am praying for it every day. I hope it all works out, I know it will. I told Anthony tonight when I went up because he was crying, I said, listen - soon we will have a dog and we will send you both to bed and he will hug you whenever you want and then our lives will change. He looked skeptical and I feel skeptical but what can you do? We are keeping on keeping on, wish us luck!
