How is everyone's stress levels? Holidays can be stressful, but add a special needs child and we can really go crazy. How are you doing?

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my siggy!

I have officially Let Go. This month, whatever happens happens, and whatever doesn't doesn't. So, for this week at least, the stress is low...but it fluctuates often.

Visit My Blog, and come join me at the JM Blogs!
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the siggy!

It varies from week to week. But so far, not bad.

Thanks Yvonne (Jaidynsmum) for my beautiful siggy!

At this exact moment... stress is through the roof.

We are looking at possibly moving next week. Joey needs a toddler bed now that he climbs out of the crib. But the biggest cause of stress is 'roid rage. Joey is on prednisone again and other than the constant eating, he has the attitude to go with it. The Preddie Prince...

I thought the 1st 12 weeks was bad... when he was 6-9 months old. But a cranky, teething, cooped up toddler on prednisone... LORD HELP ME! We only have 22-1/2 weeks left of this... and only 3-4 days each week.

We are getting ready to take a 2 day car trip to CO from WA state and I'm not to thrilled about it .I wanted to fly and be there in 3 hours but DH wanted to drive.With 2 boy under 6 it should be really fun! I am stressed out , i feel like I am the only one that is dealing with Joey's needs. My parents haven't been around him for almost a yr and same for my sister and they dismiss it alot and are just like its not that bad and then my DH just wants to make Joey do things that scare him and is like "he will get over it " I am like HELLO are you living in the same world as me ???

I will make it though an I just take alot of deep breaths lol I hope we all make it through the holiday season! lol
