Speech Meeting

Well this morning ate school John and I met with the Speech thearpist and he retested Felisha to see if she needed to see him. Which she does not so that is good. But after talking with him about Felisha and the way she is. He thinks she has a brain problem and it takes her longer to process things. She bascily has a processing problem. Plus she is a very senitive child and takes her alot longer to do things.

What a day

Wow what a day I have had. I have been listening to my book The Shack all day and oh man I have been in tears it is a great book. It sure has been given me things to think about how we think about GOD. I know we are brought up to think that GOD is a white man but not in this book. Then I have gotten 4 phone calls today. The first one was from my husband. Then my rehab councelor called to find out if I am all ready to come to the center.
Then the directory of the commission for the blind called and she told me she is mailing out my key on the 22nd of this month and she told me the first week I am there it will be crazy.
Then my step mom called and she will be sending out christmas cards to the kids that will be great she always sends money every christmas to the kids for christmas that is great of her.
I am worn out and tired and getting really excited and nervious about Jan getting here.

I am sure questioning if I should go to the commission. But I have made the decision to go so I know I should go thru with it. Alot of times in my past I decide to do something then I end up chickening out but not this time. I know this will be the best thing for me and my family but mostly the best thing for me. I did cry about this last night and how felisha was behaving about me going. For me alot has to do with being so scared to go and be away from my family.
My husband has left me and the kids many of times and for some reason it is ok for him to go. Well then I say to myself why is it not ok if I go. It is ok if I go.
So I am going to go.

The Shack just came in today

I am so excited to get started listening to The Shack. My husband told me this is a awesome book that will change my life. So after lunch I am going to get started listening to it. If anyone wants to check the book out it is called The Shack by William P. Young it is a Christian book

Felisha My daughter she is the youngest of the 3 kids I have. Felisha also has a severe learning disablity and a very low commuication skills which makes it had to try and say how she is feeling. Well I knew something was wrong with her she said she did not sleep well and was very tired and when she gets this way I know something is really wrong. So I told her was I was worried and after that she started crying really hard. She does not want me to leave and i total understand that.
I did try to explain why I needed to go not sure that even helped. There are times I do wonder if I need to wait until she is out of school.
I have alot of people telling me now i need to go. They are right I need this for myself. I am not good at making decisions for myself everyone in my life including my husband has always made decisions for me.
So for me this is a huge decision I have made for myself so I can better myself.
I feel God wants me to go know and I feel good about that decision yes I am totally scared to death but that will not stop me.
God will help me thru the time I am away from my husband and kids

Serotek releases System Access 3.0

This is so exciting for us with Vision Impairment or who are Blind. I am so excited about this.

Serotek releases System Access 3.0

Serotek Corporation continues to raise the bar in the assistive technology industry with its latest software release of System Access 3.0. In this release, there is a great deal to be excited about both for new and existing customers.

The update to version 3.0 will happen seamlessly for existing customers with no need for user intervention. And for new customers, it is not necessary to find and download an installation package. Users can simply log in to or visit and initiate the automated installation process. In this way, users can begin a trial or create a paid account without any complexity.

Serotek is proud to release the first full-featured screen access product with support for 64-bit operating systems. This support is not only an essential breakthrough for IT professionals working in 64-bit environments in the course of their employment, but for the average consumer as well. Blind individuals can now walk in to any of the increasing number of retail stores who stock their shelves exclusively with machines running 64-bit operating systems, and purchase a new computer without wondering whether or not the machine will be accessible when they take it out of the box. From the smallest Netbook to the most powerful server, System Access delivers fast, reliable, and easy to use accessibility. Remote Training and Support is now better than ever. System Access users have long had the ability to remotely access other users' computers for the purposes of support, training, or just for fun. Now System Access has added a voice over IP feature which allows for crisp and clear voice chat between connected users, eliminating the need to communicate by phone or through third-party VOIP software such as Skype.

Accessibility Anywhere is right at your fingertips with support for the Alva BC640 Braille display. With this light, portable, and fully plug and play Braille display, users can have full access to Braille in all their favorite applications both at home and on the go.

But screen access to computers isn't just for work anymore. It's also for fun, and for those living the accessible digital lifestyle, System Access brings you the most compelling support for iTunes 8 available on the market. And since everyone enjoys playing games, the Serotek team and the team at All In Play have collaborated to bring you a game-playing experience you'll want to return to again and again. All In Play features four games that are appealing to blind and sighted individuals alike, and with all plans being less than $8 per month, the fun is accessible and affordable for all. Combine System Access support for Anagram Tag, Texas Hold`em, Crazy Eights and the classic game of poker with the crisp clarity of the System Access Mobile network chat system and you'll have accessibility and entertainment wherever you go.

And whether you're at home or on the go, you'll always want the ability to keep in touch with friends and family. In addition to Serotek's built-in client supporting MSN Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger, subscribers to the SA Mobile Network can now easily communicate with each other through text or voice. Users can add their SAMNet friends to a list of SA Mobile Network contacts, and have the ability to initiate a text or voice conversation with those friends.

These are just a few of the many exciting features available in the release of System Access version 3.0. If you'd like to see a more comprehensive list of features, you can read what's new in System Access 3.0.
