Well things have been a little busy for me the past month. My job has been taking all of my energy from me. I was made temporary manager of one of the group homes the company I work for runs, wile the other is on medical leave. I finding in is a lot of work but is very rewording. In this home there are 6 guys ranging in age from 30 to 50 years old. All are either non verbal or speak very little. I have been working the day time and my responsibilities are many. I take them to and from their workshops; I get them to any appointments they may need to go to; I do any paperwork and documentation that needs to be done; and I check on the staff to make sure they are doing their jobs.
I’m finding that I really like being around these guys. They have so little and only two of the guys get visits from family. I got to go shopping for their Christmas and had lots of fun getting them new things. I’m even working on Christmas day with them; witch also excites me because I get to spent it with them because they have so little. I will get to see them open their gifts and make them dinner. It should be a fun day. I will of course be woken up early in the am by my boys so I will still get to see them open their gifts.
I’m hoping with all the work I am putting in that I will get my own home some day.

David’s birthday was on the 3rd of December we celebrated his birthday on the 2nd at my parents. David Got a lot of what he really wanted and what he is in to. This really is nice to see him growing in to his own person and we are starting to see what kind of person he will some day be. One thing David got a new board game, Spider-man Sorry, this is one thing I am really in to, on to levels, one I love board games and I really like Spiderman. David has really followed suit on this. It’s always nice to se your kids getting into the same things as you. He also got a basketball to go with the basketball hoop we were given just before his birthday. He really loves it. (Now he will have to wait until spring to use it). David also got a light bright and some art supplies.
