|It's cheese with my name on it!|
Since we last spoke, I had a birthday and fought several times with Alex's school. I've been trained on all of the students in my classroom except for one (which is coming soon), and today we finally enacted the safety/restraint training that we recently switched to so I was more able to help out in the room on a few occasions. And while it certainly has been tough to work with some of the boys without being able to engage physically if it should come to that, it's been a blessing in disguise because I've learned enough about their triggers and personalities that I've learned how to avoid an aggressive episode. It's better to avoid an incidence of aggression and self-injurious behavior than to have to engage a student who is having one.
Play At Life Yarns. I used one of her Maki and one of her semi-solids to knit another knee high. I've knit this sock with this exact yarn combo several times now and I love it each time. I'm looking forward to finishing my latest knee highs with her Dark Rainbow and Blackstrap. Look for those soon.
School (grad school that is) is going well for me. I'm on break from my latest class and I'm still carrying a 4.0 GPA. My job provides the supervision hours that I need to qualify for the BACB exam, which is great...but I had no idea that I would be required to do homework for that. Now I have homework from work AND homework from school. It's all really really overwhelming, especially with my rediculious schedule. I'm very much looking forward to summer when seminary will be out and I can sleep.
Eventually he will be opening an etsy shop and giving small business ownership a go. I'm really excited for him, and for the suddenly endless supply of candles I have to burn. Most of the first batch weren't good enough to sell, but they're good enough to scent my home :) Our apartment has never smelled so good.
