where i live for the last 2 days it's been snowing like mad. i am in a wheelchair and most of the time when it's like this i can't get even out of my house. now i have a 4 yr old son who goes to a special pre-school for kids with disabilities so you would think they would understand my situation. for all that don't know i have over a 300 foot driveway. and even if there's less then a half an inch my wheels just spin. so the last 2 days i have taken a shovel and shoveled my way down the ramp and side walk but due to the compact snow on the driveway and the fact that i would probably die before i got to the end. i have had to wait until the bus comes to send him by himself up the driveway. everyday i have cried watching him have problems himself get up the driveway. wondering if hes going to make it safely. well today i get a note home from the school saying that vaughn my son is taking an excessive amount of time to get down the driveway & onto the bus. make sure you have him ready to get on the bus when it gets there. first of all because i have to shovel just to get out of house and down the ramp to the walk way we are out there 30-40 min+ before the bus gets here everyday. so he is ready! Just in case your thinking well they might not know your in a chair well they do. i have volunteered there several times for the school and class, but that beside the point my son has a disability and part of it is walking. he can walk but balance is off so he falls now add the distance and the snow and his balance is off even more. i wrote heading i hate myself because i am so tried of not being able to take care of my kids the way i should. this is just another notch in my HEART!!!!
