Day 24 ~ back and forth it swings

Day 24 ~ December 1st, 2017

I had a great conversation with my son’s Speech Therapist (SLP) this morning during his session about incorporating French vocab/words in to his daily living. We came up with using the AAC core words but translating them to the french equivalent. Also, using the attaching core word stories, but translated of course, to pair with the words in a fun and applicable way. French is my dad’s first language so there is a usefulness to him learning it as he can use it with someone else who knows it well. Plus, it is good practice for me because my french is SO rusty! I’m excited to see how he takes to it, I think he will actually pick it up really well!

Day 23 ~ bring on the snow already

Day 23 ~ November 30th, 2017

Got out for some outdoor exploring and nature collecting again this morning. Plus, I wanted to scope out an area that has a suspension bridge that requires a bit of hike to it as well. Next outting might be up to the bridge, but this morning we went further up the back road, thankfully the road wasn’t bad for my little car. We grabbed some more sticks and rocks (small and medium) to do more painting in the future and the sticks for wrapping. At the spot I stopped to park the car there was a deer carcass off to the side, which means that someone shot it and cleaned it up there. Completely illegal and well within the city limits -_- so dangerous!

Day 22 ~ good sleep is a mythical creature

Day 22 ~ November 29th, 2017

I hoped to get a report typed up for my son’s teacher this afternoon, but the day kind of got away from me. At more than one point, I was trying to do 2 or 3 things at once and then I’d get distracted while do those things and start doing a different set of things instead. Eventually I’d go back to the previous tasks, but it took longer to do everything because I was so scattered. Irritating that I was all over the place, not only mentally, but physically most of the day. I think part of it is simply because I haven’t been getting much sleep lately, only about 5 hours a night, and it’s starting to wear on me. Fingers crossed for a better snooze-fest tonight!


Day 20 ~ all’s well

Day 20 ~ November 27th, 2017

OK, my reminder isn’t helping -_-
I am resigned to the fact that I will probably forget to publish in the evenings on occasion.

A great morning for the most part because it was sunny out! Got outside for a while with the kiddo and did some exploring, walking, running and some time at the park too. When we headed out at the start of session we noticed that the tree in the playground area of the complex uprooted itself and was held up by the electrical/cable/internet cables strung between the townhouse units. It must have happened in the storm the night before because it was crazy windy then and no one noticed it until this morning.


Day 19 ~ completely zapped

Day 19 ~ November 26th, 2017

Incredibly hard to get up and going this morning. It was like trying to run through chest deep water kind of slow… thankfully it didn’t last for too long and it’s been a fairly productive morning regardless. I am hoping to sort through the craft shelf/storage and see if I can make it more organized. I don’t even know what I have all crammed in there anymore because it’s all willy-nilly ~ !

Day 16 ~ never catching up it seems

Day 16 ~ November 23rd, 2017

Obviously I forgot to make a reminder sign… I’m doing that right now so I don’t forget again!

I was not feeling the greatest when I woke up this morning super early, around 5am (ish), and thankfully I fell back to sleep until my son woke up. I would have been worse off if I’d just tried to shoulder through it instead of resting. Upped my regular Vitamin C intake for the time being to give the immune system a bit of boost. I refuse to be sick like I was last, it was a personal hell!
