I'm juggling too much: my older son's therapy at a clinic and starting the in-home therapy, my younger son's interesting issue where he can technically "hear" but doesn't respond to noises very often, trying to fit in work which is its own whole ball of wax, my husband in night classes four times a week while still working full time, housework since I have people coming 5 to 6 days a week, finishing fixer-upper stuff, and then trying to take care of myself. Oh, and my entire family has been sick for half of 2016 already. Like stay home, away from work/school sick. Just awful.

Money-wise, we are ok. I think we're spending just within our limits or slightly above, but I'm not positive. Credit cards are paid in full. We've had student loans come through and my husband's workplace will be reimbursing us here shortly. My HSA is fully funded, and will be used up here shortly.

Goals have fallen to more of the spontaneous daily kind. Almost a "what three things can I get done today". Usually they're simple like flip laundry or take out trash, but it's about all I can do.

I do need to figure out tax stuff. I'm not sure if I need an accountant this year or not. TurboTax and the like doesn't handle my particual situation very well. I feel like I got quadruple the number of tax forms this year than any other year. I guess buying a house plus ACA will do that to you.

    That would be me. I started with my younger one in Early intervention at 12 months. Both kids had tubes by 1 year, 6 months for my older. Failed hearing test for my younger. At 2 DK2 had about 3 words (dada, reee, mo). By age 3 maybe about 15. And not after YEARS of therapy and speech still 3x/week in public schools DK2 is finally talking at 3.5 year. It's not clear but it's been very painful.

    Definitely take it easy on yourself! We got the form for ACA too. H&R Block asked about it, but it wasn't any big issue to report if I remember correctly.

    This may be a year to hire someone, but you have about two months to see if you can make a little progress.

    Thank you everyone. Your kind words sure have helped a lot.

    LivingAlmostLarge: it's nice to "meet" others with the same issues. My youngest's ears work: ear drum vibrates right, no fluid, inner ear responds properly, but yet he can't hear most noises. It's flabbergasting.
