found the bird in a leaky package at the bottom of the fridge. baked it a bit and tossed in the pot with carrots and celery and egg noodles. Little man is actually eating it because he likes it. boiled the broth all night and it worked out nicely. I had three bowls. total comfort food.
Today he said, “Chautauqua Elementary Sucks and I’m never going back.” Sigh. So be it. It’s still all about Rj’s suicide. (Rj was there for my other kids graduation from elementary school.) This backlash from my son gave me a bit of an anxiety attack today.
We recently received a somewhat cruel letter from the elementary school, dropping my son from their books due to his attendance while he’s been in treatment for depression.
Called the school requesting curriculum, but it looks like we are on our own.
We’ve been homeschooling, but out first priority is his mental health, he’s still showing signs of depression about Rj. Asking for the hoodie Rj gave him. He still likes to wear it.
We work a lot on math, art and music and cursive. He’s reading and writing is fine. In fact he doesn’t qualify for an IEP because he tested out and has no academic deficits. He’s just looking forward to middle school. We have plenty of time to prepare him academically. He’ll be showing up prepared and ready for the chaos of the first few days. He already has his science project for the science fair ready to go. So there.
Found them in the bottom drawer of the fridge. Left over, uncooked. This vegetarian/ sassy stuck up vegan went on to cook it and eat it and it was totally full of fat and I ate it because we went so far as to eat the turkey, didn’t want to waste any part of it. Suddenly feel like my Grandmother.
Now about the gizzard… still has 100% of b12 and lots of iron but no vitamin a, as compared to the liver. Interesting. Gonna eat that too, who knew?
