Day Seven ~ August 9th, 2018
I have successfully made it through a week of posts without forgetting. I’m attempting to carry out this list item in the same way of thinking when it comes to days that I don’t want to workout. Which is the second I think “I don’t want to” then I do it right then. It typically takes less than 15 minutes to do up a post and less than that if my journal entry isn’t digital that day so I really have no excuse to not make this happen every day right!
Day 134 ~ March 22nd, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: stoup ~ a container for drinking beers, etc.; a flagon.
Today’s Calendar Quote: “The eye may see from the hand, but not for the mind.” — Henry David Thoreau
Monday’s and Thursday’s seem to be the worst days of the week for me to get any kind of decent sleep. Not sure exactly why this is, but that’s what I’ve noticed over the last two weeks or so.
My son had his regular therapy session this afternoon and I went upstairs to fold laundry and nearly fell asleep when I took a moment to recline. Just so tired all the time and don’t have a solution for it for the time being.

Day 118 ~ March 5th, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: deipnosophist ~ a person skilled in the art of dining and dinner-table conversation.
Today’s Calendar Quote: “Listen. Keep silent. You are not God’s mouthpiece. Try to be an ear,
and if you do speak, ask for explanations.” — Rumi
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

Day 116 ~ March 3rd, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: pother ~ a commotion or fuss.
I decided to start lifting weights for the time being. I was missing it more than I thought I was I guess. I’m continuing with the Combat HIIT, but finishing the program on Level 3 is less important now. I’ll try to treat it as more of a warm-up before I start lifting. The ab days in the HIIT program are awesome, but the rest is not doing it for me. I should’ve gone with Power Cardio I think. Oh well, maybe do that one next.

Today’s Calendar Quote: “All those who suffer in the world do so because of their desire for their own happiness.” — Shantideva
I didn’t mention this yet, but I have a computer again! Yays!!
My younger brother is all the piles of awesome sauce (thank you, thank you again!) and hooked me up with an amazing CPU *happy dance* I haven’t had a computer working this great in an extremely long time and it is glorious!
I spent yesterday and part of this morning playing catch-up on forum threads at The Hive on Darebee. I missed talking with everyone there big time 🙂

Today’s Calendar Word: philophobia ~ a fear of love, falling in love.
Today’s Calendar Quote: “Gamble everything for love,, if you are a true human being. If not, leave this gathering. Half-heartedness doesn’t reach into majesty.” — Rumi
The super cleaning and organizing continued into most of today. I got the floors vacuumed and washed, my son’s room cleaned up and re-arranged again, the laundry done, the dishes done, swapped out the old kitchen table for a small desk, got the rest of the paper notes on my desk cleaned off and got some more stuff done for the action/pronoun cards I’m making for my son.
Day 95 ~ February 10th, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: calliopean ~ resembling a calliope in sound; piercingly loud.
Not too terribly much to say other than I still am not the biggest fan of the weekends….
