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 we spent most of the day out at my dad’s place. There is tons of snow up there! It was tough to walk around through it (though kinda fun) and my legs/butt are a bit sore.
My son played around with the dogs for such a long time and it was amazing to watch. Need to get this kid a dog so badly! I’ll put some vids/pics up on instagram in the next day or so. It is painful to do that with my phone because it hates the wi-fi for whatever reason. Irritating… anyway they are super cute!

Today’s Calendar Quote: “Keep your heart clear and transparent and you will never be bound.” — Ryokan
All of the sunshine today and a fantastic morning with the kidlet so all-in-all a fantastic morning!
I had another appointment at the hospital this afternoon. It wasn’t intended to be a biopsy, but the doc informed that it was very likely considering my history. And it was good for a second there, but then after some hardcore scrapping she needed to take samples from two places. *Sigh* I want this all to be over… It’s been over a year and I need to see her again in 6 months providing my biopsies come back negative. Just… sucks…. I was hoping for better news.
Day 110 ~ February 25th, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: muckrake ~ to search for and expose corruption, especially in politics.
Today’s Calendar Quote: “Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” — Socrates
It’s snowed on every Sunday (or darn close to all) that I need to go across the bridge for swimming lessons for my son since they started *vexed face* I don’t mind driving in it, its other drivers that disco dance on my last nerve for the duration. They are either cautious to the extreme, and unnecessarily so, or they drive like the roads are in impeccable condition and there are no other cars around them whatsoever (e.g. excessive speeding, no indicator or shoulder check turning/changing lanes, tailgating, etc). I’m a considerate, relaxed driver, but some days driving here incites that rage tingle between the shoulder blades!

Day 109 ~ February 24th, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: ambuscade ~ an ambush.
I didn’t get much sleep last night… I feel asleep after 2am and then I woke up at 6:30am and ended sort of dozing on the couch after that until my son woke up. It’s too damn cold to do much else in the morning when you’re sleepy. I thought about doing my workout, but I clearly couldn’t muster the motivation to start it then.
Day 108 ~ February 23rd, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: periapt ~ an item worn as a charm or amulet.
Today’s Calendar Quote: “Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear.” — Lao Tzu
It is another cold day and it snowed again -_-
Coming to the end of February and it is a little odd that it keeps snowing (at least I think so ??). The weather has been so weird the last few years here it’s difficult to know what should be typical anymore.
At least we got outside to play on the huge snow pile and side common area again for a while this afternoon. Too bad the sun didn’t make an appearance, but the kidlet still had fun.

I put my son’s pending registration in for the sports program via CAN (Canucks Autism Network) the second time around. Thankfully it is at a different place though so it’ll seem “new” if he a confirmed registration for the Spring session.
