Brain dead--no title for this post

This is going to be a fairly short blog post since I'm super tired and have a very long day tomorrow. On my agenda for tomorrow:

Work--morning, afternoon, and late night
Pick up a few items at the store. There is a sale on Luna Bars!
Therapy appointment

It's not a huge list, but the day will start around 8 AM and not officially be over until after 10:30 PM. There are a few hang-ups as well. First, there is prediction of rain all day with a severe storm watch placed throughout most of the day. This wouldn't be so bad except that I have to drive into town in the evening. I'm not a fan of driving in the rain, and if it is down pouring, like I can't see through my windshield, I seriously panic! I keep having this image of myself sitting in my car on the side of the road, calling C., saying I can't drive there due to a panic attack of rain!

I'm also still trying to decide whether to take Tovah with me to my appointment. Normally, I wouldn't except that I have to drive from work to my appointment directly. I got the okay from C. at my last appointment, but I'm a little worried that she won't settle. In some ways, this is like toting a little kid somewhere except I can't just hand her a coloring book and crayons. Well, maybe I could, but I doubt the crayons would be used for the correct purpose! Of course, I'd bring stuff to keep her occupied, but I'm just concerned I'll be more focused on her than my appt., and C. is really big into making sure I get my time out of the session.

All right, I'm about to fall over the keyboard, so I'm wrapping this up. I also took some new photos of Tovah yesterday at her first official outing at the Arboretum. She really did quite well and was thrilled she is generalizing her behaviors. The photos came out great, so I'll post some of those soon.

How exciting that little Tovah is generalizing already! It took me quite awhile to teach Faith sit sit in different areas - she used to only sit on rugs or something soft.

Now she will sit anywhere - concrete, tile, etc.

You must be a very patient and tender teacher.

Thanks for the support, everyone. Luckily, the torrential downpour stopped before I had to drive, just had to deal with high winds.

GBMl, yes, Tovah is learning nicely how to generalize which is such a plus.
