Kiddo is back and forth temperament-wise today and stim-ing as well… They happen now and then, but I am so grateful they are on the “not-so-often” end of things for him because they can be tough days!

Today’s Calendar Quote:There is a basket of fresh bread on your head, yet you go door to door asking for crusts.” — Rumi

A fantastic morning despite being incredibly sore from my core workout yesterday! Kidlet was in a great mood so that means the day start off on the right foot and it gives up more options to begin his schedule with as well.

This morning we went to the indoor track as I’ve wanted to take him for a while and not able to get it planned just right. All that changed this morning and he did amazing there and he had fun!! It was a mish-mash of walking and running but we ended up going just under two kilometers. I can’t wait to take him back again and I am ecstatic that he seems to actually like running!

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 32 ~ pushing on

Day 32 ~ December 9th, 2017

Tough getting myself going this morning. I woke up a little after three a.m. and couldn’t get back to sleep for a bit. I eventually did for about 2 hours, but I felt real muddled until after I finished my workout. I don’t like my head feeling like it’s in a fog. I don’t feel 100%, my throat still hurts some, but it feels the worst first thing in the morning and in the evening kind of after supper. I hope this is as bad as it gets because I don’t want to be full-blown sick again this year.

Day 30 ~ a pajama day

Day 30 ~ December 7th, 2017

The kiddo isn’t feeling any better this morning T-T
He was even able to tell me that his throat was hurting, which is something new, by holding his neck and saying “hurt”. Unfortunately not much I can do about that besides give him a throat lozenge, but he won’t take any… His fever still seems high too so I stayed focused on keeping him cool and hydrated. Thankfully he only threw up two times, once at either end of the day. He is becoming a big boy and after sitting in his sweat all day he has rank b.o. I can’t believe how bad it is and he’s only just 10 years old!
