“The phrase “alt-right” was coined by one of the most bigoted, racist, white supremacists in America — Richard Betrand Spencer. He is the brain of the alt-right movement — which is nothing more than white supremacist bigotry by a new name. In 2013, the Anti-Defamation League labeled him as “symbol of the new white supremacy.” The Southern Poverty Law Center called the 38-year old-Spencer ‘a suit-and-tie version of the white supremacists of old, a kind of professional racist in khakis’.”
Overthinking: “Suzie has a well-check. I need to make sure to set a reminder on my phone for 1 day out and 1 hour out so that I don’t forget about it like I did last year. They will think I’m a complete airhead if I forget yet another appointment. They say it’s not a big deal, but they’re probably just being nice. Okay. Reminders set. I got this. “
Adoptive Mama Overthinking: “Suzie has a well-check next week! I need to make sure to set a reminder on my phone for 1 day out and 1 hour out so that I don’t forget about it like I did last year. They will think I’m a complete airhead if I forget yet another appointment. They say it’s not a big deal, but they’re probably just being nice. Okay. Reminders set. I got this. Oh! I wonder if I should take her by early to acclimate her to the office environment. Maybe I should take pictures of the staff so that she is familiar with them beforehand. I need to make sure to bring along our sensory items in case she starts to struggle with being in a sensory-deprived environment. I wonder if being at the doctor’s office will trigger any memories from her time visiting doctors before we came to get her. How many days will we spend recovering from this well-check visit? I hope she is on the growth chart this time. What if she’s not? Will we be referred to a new specialist? I wonder if I should start checking out specialists in my area beforehand just in case. I bet my Facebook group will have some good suggestions. Now I’m just freaking out. I know I am. Oh, but please dear Lord in heaven, let them not spring any blood work requests on us, Amen.
1.Make sure you have an 8 am appointment so you can’t possibly ride the school bus. This will save you from diesel fumes, car sickness and a relaxed morning.*
*this also gives you the distinct advantage of appearing busy and therefore important.
I LOVE giving gifts of experience but really love being able to give my family members something tangible as well. There’s just something about unwrapping a gift, or watching your family and friends unwrapping a gift, that just makes the day!
