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

Great morning with my son! He did some exercising with me and we did lots of playing. And he is chatting up a storm today too! I don’t normally have my son on Wednesday’s so it was very relaxed and we just hung out with each other, it was fun. His dad is back from vacation this weekend so I think everything goes (more or less) back to normal next week. I will miss seeing my kiddo every day, but we are both keen for our regular routine as well.

Today’s Calendar Quote:Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.” — Buddha

I’m a sleepy butt today, but that is because REM seems to be completely elusive lately. I don’t even have any dreams, which is the main reason I know that isn’t happening. I normally dream a lot and they are always extremely vivid and I recall them in the morning easily. I hope to get some deeper sleep this week.

It was a busy day!! I think we spent more time out of the house than it today!

Swimming lessons (through SwimAbility) at the pool across the bridge started early this afternoon and despite getting there earlier than intended and have to wait (which was difficult for my son!) he did amazing! He held hands with his instructor no problem so he wouldn’t run on the pool deck (a strange male! This is rare!), cleaned up the rings he was playing with before leaving the pool, didn’t freak out when he didn’t get the ball, and left the pool & right to me without a single hitch!
I am beyond pleased that this went so well because he loves water!!! *happy dance*

Day 59 ~ this yo-yo game

Day 59 ~ January 5th, 2018

An up and down morning with the kiddo… This are tougher days because it’s difficult to play the same yo-yo game as him when we are not on the same wavelength. But we get through it regardless and at the end of the day he was a super happy camper so I count that as a win in my books. Every day can’t be smooth sailing so the hiccup-y days are to be expected!
