Today’s Calendar Word: gasconade ~ extravagant boasting
Today’s Calendar Quote:Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.” — Basho

This morning was the first solo session with the new Speech Therapist that is slowly replacing the one my son has used for the last two years. It went way better than I anticipated and I am so grateful that he seems to handle new people a hundred times better now than in the past. I hope he ends up liking her just as much as his previous one, but those are hard shoes to fill! She is amazing!

Today’s Calendar Quote:How wonderful! How wonderful! The inanimate expounding the Dharma. What an ineffable truth!” — Tung-shan

Energy-wise it was an extremely slow morning. I couldn’t get my ‘get-up-and-go’ going a hundred percent until much later in the afternoon. I nearly opted to do groceries a different day, but I knew that would just make me frazzled as far as time goes so I didn’t choose that route. I am so glad I didn’t because I saw a co-worker from my old job at the grocery store and I hadn’t seen him in a couple of years. Turns out he is about to leave the same place as well for partly the same reason I did, but it’s now a thousand times worse than when I left about 4 years ago. Considering how much it is stressing him out, I am so glad to hear he is cutting himself loose and I know he’ll find something better if he chooses to find other work.

He is easily one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met and I was so glad to run into him randomly this afternoon!


Day 50 ~ plopped my butt

Day 50 ~ December 27th, 2017

A totally chill day for the most part and this is gonna be a quick post. I played video games for almost the entire day and it was amazing! I haven’t done this in basically a year so it was kind of needed!

Today was also my rest day because I totally destroyed my core with my two ab workouts the day before. Holy am I sore!! Only yoga on the agenda for any moving around to help keep me loosey-goosey ~ ~


Day 49 ~ keeping up the daily pretzel

Day 49 ~ December 26th, 2017

I got most of my email inbox emptied out this morning! It was not what I originally planned to do at all today, but I got into a groove and just stuck with it. Not sure what I’ll do next though… maybe some reading or video games? I might hit up a shower first though to warm up all the extremities if I’m going to be sitting still for a good length of time.

Day 42 ~ it’s a hibernating day

Day 42 ~ December 19th, 2017

Sooooooooooooooooo incredibly happy that I feel better today! The sleep last night wasn’t great, partly because I like to sleep on my stomach and I couldn’t for fear of puking, and because I have this horrible shooting pain between my neck and shoulder on the right side. I suppose something must be pinched in the area so hopefully it goes away soon.

Day 29 ~ where change began

Day 29 ~ December 6th, 2017

I got some CBD tincture for myself this week and that is the ticket for an uninterrupted sleep at night and more than a handful of hours as well. I am glad I was able to get it even if I’ll only use it a few times a week. I sleep extremely heavy, like through earthquakes heavy, so I don’t like the idea of possibly not hearing my son in the middle of the night. Not that, that actually happens often at all, but I like to be ready.
