and he was diagnosed with ADHD back in May/June of this year. he is now in kindergarten and i have tried numerous times to work on his writing skills with letters and numbers and he is not interested AT ALL. I am getting nervous because as we all know ADHD is a learning disability and i am afraid that he will NEVER want to do his homework, or schoolwork, and, i feel like i dont know where to turn. yes, i have my husband to turn to, but, he and i are NOT educators and we don't have a clue in terms of how to get your child motivated to work, we try, but, you know what i mean, right?! Anyway, he and I were just working on his letters...G...upper and lowercase, and he had a meltdown..he did not want to work on this at all...he did the writing, but, then proceeded to go through the alphabet song, and, goes on to tell me, that he knows his letters, i then encouraged him and praised him for singing..i tried to explain that he has to learn out to write the letters and know the sounds so he can learn how to read...he was not hearing it...i probably overwhelmed him, right?! Anyway, does anyone has suggestions/tips/advice for me and my husband as to what we can do in terms of keeping our son motivated, interested in doing his homework..he is our only child at this time, and, we dont have a clue...thanks! I am a nervous wreck and i feel like getting hysterical...thank you!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
