TGIF everyone! I have been super busy this week, organizing and working on my new projects and new business ventures. I networked with some women this week, and I can tell after spending 3 hours with them, we are gonna have a good working relationship. I’ll detail my new plans in a later post. I haven’t networked in a long time, and I kind of miss being around people. That being said, I must get out at least once a week if I just go to Starbucks, St Louis Bread Company (Panera Bread) or Einstein Brothers to just hang out, have a little coffee and people watch. They are all within 3 minutes of me, serious competition, huh? I’ll try going late mornings, and invite a couple of people to join me. We’ll see how that turns out. My Facebook page is coming along pretty good, thanks to everyone that’s liked my page and of course read and comment on my blog. I appreciate each comment and like.
Congratulations to President Barak Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for the inauguration and the beginning of his second term in office. I found this sketch on Pinterest , I thought it was beautiful.
I went to my daughter’s IEP meeting today and it was an eye opening experience. I’ve been attending these meetings faithfully from the beginning. She’s 17 now, and it’s time to start transitioning her. I have so many questions, concerns, doubts that my head is spinning. I have serious decisions to make, because when she turns 18, she is considered an adult and can do whatever she wants. I do have the ability to become her Power of Attorney, and I may just do that. There is so much you guys, teaching her how to use public transportation, putting her in a work environment that will be conducive to her disability. I never wanted to think my baby couldn’t do anything, and I still believe it, but I must be realistic too. Stay tuned, this is just the beginning of this subject. They sent me home with enough literature to keep me busy for 6 months. I’m going to read every page too. This is the face of autism, isn’t she beautiful?
Ok, here’s my rant for the day. Manti Te’o, talk about some craziness. For those of you unfamiliar with this young man, he’s the one that said his grandmother and girlfriend died within one day of each other. I’ve been following this story, not as close as some but enough to give this story a serious side eye. I believe everything he’s done has to do with being drafted into the NFL, he didn’t want nothing affecting his chances of being drafted. This is the bad part of the internet and social media. Pure madness, be interesting to see how this all turns out.
Have a great weekend, and if you are stuck in the house because of the cold, frigid weather..hold on spring is coming, in a few months!
