Day 48 ~ cleaning machine and some rep gains

Day Forty-Eight ~ September 19, 2018

Spent most of the day cleaning things up around the house, especially from my son’s room. I did a little re-arranging in there too. It kind of surprises me at how messy he can be and yet I know just how chaotic most ten-year old rooms actually are so it shouldn’t be remotely shocking! Some things are definitely age appropriate with him and some things most certainly are not haha

Day 42 ~ getting back into it

Day Forty-Two ~ September 13th, 2018

I nearly talked myself out of a run this afternoon and I’m glad that I didn’t. It’s been a few days since I last did one so a less than stellar performance in m opinion, but at least I did it anyway!

Summer is basically over here and the temps are getting cooler quicker than normal it feels like. Out on the trampoline for a bit this evening when the sun’s gone down and my toes were freezing. It feels great during the day, but the evenings already need a sweater.

Day 21 ~ relaxing, laughs and motivation

Day Twenty-One ~ August 23rd, 2018

I almost completely forgot about the CAN registration this week! It ends tomorrow so I’m glad that I remembered and I got my son’s registration in for three different programs. He probably won’t get into all three, but I’m hoping he’ll get into the two programs he hasn’t been into yet *fingers crossed*


Day 18 ~ misplaced his precious and a new SLP

Day Eighteen ~ August 20th, 2018

A meetings filled morning today which included my son meeting his new Speech Therapist. She seems like a cool chick and is easy to talk to for both me and my kiddo so I think they will be a good fit. Mostly just chatted about some goals for the new school year and took stock of where he is at and we have a good plan in place so far. Things always get checked and re-worked throughout the year as per his skills and daily needs so I am looking forward to his progress 🙂

On the less exciting side of things… my son misplaced his favourite duct taped Powerade “bracelet” (it’s a label from a bottle) early this afternoon and he was so sad! Thankfully it wasn’t lost to us forever because the poor guy was beside himself with the loss! My little dude feels so deeply about some of the oddest things, but it is endearing and I’m glad we found it.

Day 16 ~ smokey tromps

Day Sixteen ~ August 18th, 2018

Acted out a ton of Ratatouille scenes with my son this morning. I love hearing his hysterical giggles! One of the best ways to start a day in my opinion and an easy way as well. There are some days that things are a struggle to understand and then there are days that are so easily deciphered (like today) that it balances itself out. This kidlet never fails to make me smile though, even on the tough days 😀

I am incredibly sore today from the previous two days of lifting and extra core work. I love it, but it does make it incredibly difficult to fully relax when things are achy kind of all over!

Day 2 ~ sunshiney, breezey heel-toe-express

Day Two ~ August 4th, 2018

I feel like I had a good start to the weekend. My son came and cuddled with me before I was up and out of bed, which is such a rare occurrence these days. I took away his massive bag of stuff/garbage last night so he was an upset out-of-sorts first thing. Thankfully he moved past it faster than anticipated, small wins are amazing!

His recent obsession is picking up or keeping bits of garbage… Some of them he incorporates into crafts, but he tends to simply want to have them. Preferably in a bag of some sort. The process for curbing the tendency started last week because it was getting a little silly and fingers crossed we get it under control soon.

I went had a quick meeting with one of our landlord peeps this afternoon. We have an opportunity to get a dog that will eventually become a service dog for my son so I was nervous as all get out!

But it was all for naught! I was talking for like two minutes and she was completely on board with it. All they need for their records is a letter of intent basically from someone working my son. I have plenty of those so I was easily able to accommodate that step. And yeah, we pick up the pup next Monday. *happy dance* Hooray!

I am so excited for my son, he is going to utterly lose his mind when he realizes this dog is his forever haha
