Life is a bit crazy now. The end of the year stress has hit at work and I'm also worried about Serenity's impending vet appointment. She's supposed to go get her checkup with the specialists at the NC State towards the end of the month. We took her to our local vet last week and found out she's gained some weight. She weighs in at a whooping 8 pounds, which is a whole 3 pounds from the time that she had her surgery. We're really hopefully that this means that the surgery worked. However, I am not going to put all of my eggs in the basket just yet. My main goal in these next few weeks is to spend as much of my free time with her as possible.
I guess the one upside to all of the craziness of life is that it really sends me back to the basics. I pulled out one of my big foam dice cubes from the Dollar Tree this week for my articulation groups. My students used the dice to figure out how many times to say their word or phrase. It was so simple but so effective. I wish I had thought to do it sooner!
