I'll say up front that we will be lucky if next week is as productive as this week; Amber has 3 separate days of appointments, regular flute lesson, and an all afternoon drama class rehearsal on what was supposed to be a break from co-op. That rehearsal is not sitting well with either of us because we planned for a break week and she needs that day to rest. I try my best to schedule special appointments during the break weeks, but I can only do so much when we are given such short notice and I had to schedule these other appointments a couple of months in advance. I'm just frustrated.

We are recommitting ourselves to the low FODMAP diet, since we have strayed a little from it. My GI doctor would like me to be on it for my own digestion and not just in solidarity with Amber, while she is suffering some digestion setbacks and needs to recover some. It was good eating like normal people for a while. This weekend I'm working out our meal plans for next week to ensure we don't revert to old ways due to poor preparation.
Amber finished her IEW writing program for the year!! There was much rejoicing; okay not really. There was something of a half-hearted "yay", but that's about it. She's got more writing we are going to start in the next week or so. Still, it's nice to have something checked off the list as completed for the year.
History has been pathetic this year, but she made progress in it this week and seems to be pleased with the changes we made to her curriculum. It's always nice when changes I agonized over and spent hours designing are appreciated.

Biscotti is still separated, but desperately wants out of his guest bedroom now. He jumped behind me from a higher position and out of the door when I entered one time on Wednesday, but thankfully the other cats had both just run downstairs and I was able to pick up Biscotti and get him back into the room before the other saw him out.
