Generally good day

Nothing has really changed from my norm.

The swim coach used scare tactics to weed the class down, the first actual day of swimming was the only day he has made us due x amt. of laps in x time. Yesterday I also found my rhythm for the breaststroke. My confidence is high at the moment. I also believe this swim thing is messing with my appetite in a good way. When I got back to work we had taco lunch day. Usually I could eat a plate and a half plus dessert! I couldn't even get through the first plate without forcing it, and I paid for it too! :-( I wonder what the scale will look like come December. Hmmmmmm.

Working with my kids with autism, I got a hug from the young man that I wasn't supposed to deal with. He bites, pinches, and scratches people. When they were lining up to go to the gym he just came up and like any other child, raised his hands for a hug. I won't lie, it scared me. In my head I was like "if this little boy bites my neck or something it's gonna be on" the support staff was looking at us as I was looking at them watching to see what he may do. He just hugged me and went to his spot in line. "Whew!" After PE he let me hold his hand down the hall! I felt kinda good knowing that he was willing to let me work with him. We got out last little boy yesterday, he is the lowest functioning out of the group. I haven't had the chance to work with him yet, maybe next week. Who knows.

The state fair is coming soon! My job always works the fair and the schedule got put up for us to sign up for a shift. After I picked mine it reminded me to check out the entertainment this year. The only act they are advertising is Daughtry and his show is already sold out. Not like I would have brought a ticket for him anyways. As I scrolled down the entertainment page I saw this:
OMG!!!! Ruben is coming to town!!!! On the same day I signed up to work the fair!!! For 10 bucks a ticket!!!!! Oh heck yeah! LOL So I got me and Pooka a ticket, yeah he is not a kid show but he doesn't curse so I think I'm good. Anthony Hamilton is coming too for a great fee, but I am not sure if I am going. I shot some messages out asking folks if they wanted to go and we could do a group thing, but I haven't got much back. I'd rather go to his concert as a group. Then add the fact he is coming on a Thursday night *sigh* that's a school night. We'll see. I may change my mind cuz the ticket is price good and I like a few of his records.
With the exception of one member of my team at work leaving this week, yesterday was generally a good day.

You found your rhythm? Wanna help me find my rhythm for a stroke? :oD What? It's the gift that keeps on giving. I'm just talking about stroking.

You sure Anthony is performing and not just hanging with his goat brethren?

Ladynay said...

Sure I'll help you find all strokes and rhythms that will get the job done for you. What? You asked!

Hey hey hey! Don't talk about him just cuz his look is more homey than others! LOL

Kids can detect when someone is genuin and has a good heart, that's why this kid is allowing you to be near him.

Freaky Deaky said...

Yeah, I wouldn't want to get any angry hate mail from insulted Billy goats or goat lovers. *smirk*

Ladynay said...

I really hope that's it Erica.

FD, hate mail from billy goats? You're so wrong! *smh*

AR Gal said...

Awww, that's so sweet that the young man reached out to you. That just proves your good people!

I say go to the concert with or without the group. For $10, I'd be there too!
