Thursday



Holy crap, how is it possible that there is still one whole entire work/school day left this week. I am exhaustified, Lucy is exhaustified ... the kid has not complained about bedtime once this week (not that I am sad about that).

Lucy is doing good in preschool. I think she likes it and is definately getting a lot of stimulation. For her it's the ultimate in over stimulation, not only are there a lot of activities (great art projects) but the kids change from morning to afternoon and from day to day so she's not even getting a grasp of the people in her class and for social queen Lucy THIS is really challenging.

Work has been a little more challenging as well. Clients are coming and going at rapid speeds, getting the classes full and the waiting list tended to is challenging and finding/seeing my clients can be daunting. Once I DO get to see a client their issues slap me in the face with their complexities and sadnessess. I come to work exhausted, I leave more exhausted it's a viscious cycle.

Day by day I am slowly organizing my life. Going through closets, getting rid of precious (to me) "items" that were Lucy (Jacob is getting some of the goodies ... ) and making space for moving forward. Each bag of stuff that leaves or finds a permanent organized home takes an ounce of "overwhelmedness" off of my shoulders so it inspires me to plug away a little more.

Now if only I could come up with a few thousand dollars to pay bills and relieve my financial stress ...

OK well this blog post is all about me me me ... back to our regularly scheduled Lucymania next time ... thanks for listening

Love the hair! It sounds like while you may be overwhelmed and exhausted, you are handling it with grace and competence. One look at that little girls face and you know you are a pro.

Such a precious girl!! Do you mind me asking what sort of hair products you use for her hair?? We have an Ethiopian son and I'm just trying to figure out a way to keep his hair lookin' good. Lucy's hair always looks so soft and silky! :)

eric & amp: tara ... i've tried lots of things with Lucy's hair and by far the simplier the better in terms of hair care for her. I put warm water in sprayer and put some olive oil or coconut oil in the water and spritz her hair down before i comb it out (the wetter the better for painfree combing). When I do wash her hair I just use regular rinse out conditioner (suave, aveda, whatever i have). I use different leave in conditioners on the ends of her hair and all over if it's not in braids. In the photo in this post I used carol's daugher mimosa hair honey and in her whole life she has had two containers of this (and her 2nd one is 1/2 full still).
