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 ~ puppers!

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.

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

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 28 ~ I am ready for tomorrow *fist pump*

Day 28 ~ January 31st, 2017

I spent the morning out doing errands and getting a test done at school. I did really well on it, but I expected that to happen as I did well on the hand-in and all the practice assignments. I hope the next unit isn’t to difficult to understand, it’s about Rational Expressions I think. I can’t seem to recall anything about it from the review course(s) last year though…. *Fingers crossed*

I am up to 1,034 of 20,017 for the annual push-ups as of today. I did dragon, triangle, archer, cross body, and raised leg variations this afternoon. And I am really sore tonight as I’ve done just over 600reps over the last two days. I think I am still actually behind by about 700reps(-ish) still to finish on time if I eventually want to just do a set amount of 50-60reps a day. If I continue with the high rep volume I won’t stay behind, but it does mean that I am extra sore at least every other day!

Tomorrow I start two Darebee programs, another 30-day Yoga on YouTube with a couple of members from The Hive 😀 , and the monthly challenge from Darebee as well. It’s going to be a fun month!!

And well I am actually super sleepy now so going to head to bed and here’s hoping I get a decent night’s sleep!

Things I am grateful for today:

~ doing great on my Unit 2 math test
~ signing the paperwork for Respite for my son this morning
~ driving on the highway is getting less stressful
~ new sweaters!
~ getting even more clutter cleared from/in my desk

Day 27 ~ slowpoke fancy-pants & brain-syncing

Day 27 ~ January 29th, 2017

A fairly relaxing day I suppose… Went out for coffee with Hulkhands and that was nice 🙂
The sunshine was out and about throughout the day and I gave my car a wash on the way home as well. It needed it badly! I was amazed at how busy the car wash was this morning and there were so many fancy-pants that totally didn’t need a wash, but the peeps took their sweet A** time… *vexed face* Ahhhh oh well, at least I had the time to get it done today either way.

Other than getting some things tidied around the house, I basically worked on math homework most of the day. I finished everything I need to hand in on Tuesday before I write the Unit test and I am going to do the Unit quizzes shortly after posting. I’m glad this particular material seems to make more sense to me this time around. I think it’s just cause it was explained in more detail than it was in the review course last year. It was just not jivving with my noodle then, but elated that I seem to have sorted it out this year *fist pump* Hopefully the next unit is just as brain-syncing as this one!

Things I am grateful for today:

~ that I’ve come such long way with how patient I am with others
~ my son finds the act of putting a puzzle together so calming
~ washing my car from all the snow, road grime, and dirt
~ Hulkhands putting up the stationary pull-up bar
~ finishing up my current fitness program and challenges a day early

Cheers ~ ✌
