Day 12 ~ big one right at the start

Day 12 ~ November 19th, 2017

I got done a few things with the kiddo this morning, lots of school work and crafts, and now we are almost a whole weekend ahead! It will make his portfolio look pretty swanky that is for certain and I’m sure at some point we will have a tougher week that will set us right back on target 😛 This is almost always how it ends up working out!

Today is my first real rest day in a very long time. It has been difficult to keep myself from doing anything that I might normally do… Thankfully I am usually very busy so I am not stuck sitting doing nothing and mentally putting myself through the wringer!

Day 11 ~ I got this!

Day 11 ~ November 18th, 2017

I thought I hit ‘publish’ on this yesterday afternoon, but I didn’t! Oops!

It was a busier morning than I expected it to be in that I ended up doing more school work with my son than I’d planned. He was fairly attentive, up until the last few pages, but I think that had more to do with his iPad totally spazzing! Whether it was that or not that was the main cause, it was sooooo upsetting and took close to an hour to get fully calm again. It’s a punch to the heart when he gets that out of sorts 😦 I always wish I could do more…

Day 10 ~ let’s get it started!

Day 10 ~ November 17th, 2017

A fantastic morning! My son had a great Speech Therapy session and I’ve got a copy of the sign language for the phonetic sounds of letters so I can give my son visuals to help him make the right sounds when he speaks. This is going to be so helpful! Also, we did some yoga and worked on some craft sticks (therapy sticks). He loves doing these sticks so much as he is basically putting all his favourite things on an object he can keep and display. I actually enjoy it immensely and am impressed with each end product I create too.

I decided to start Yoga Revolution again as the kiddo really enjoys Adrienne, she makes him smile immediately when she starts talking. It’s adorable and he went through most of the video as best as possible and for the moves he didn’t do he still stayed on his mat until it ended *thumbs up*

Day 9 ~ sunshine = smiles

Day 9 ~ November 16th, 2017

It was a beautiful day with more sunshine! I got out with the kiddo and a friend of mine this morning to a provincial park with some fun trails right in the area since I rarely go to them. We brought the nature home with us in the form of sticks and small stones. Likely paint and googlie eye the rocks and decorate the sticks with crafties 🙂 I was saying while we were out this morning that I should always bring a bucket with me because I always end up with stuff in my pockets by the end of the jaunt!

Day 8 ~ workout weekend thoughts

Day 8 – November 15th, 2017

*sigh* If I miss one day then it’s so likely that I will miss two… I’ve been so sore (hard DOMS) the last few days so sitting at my computer wasn’t appealing. Plus, with the snow melting this past week I wanted to get out to the yards to clean up most of the leaves before it snowed again and lost my chance.
I worked my core too hard this weekend, it’s a mistake I haven’t made in a long time and I’ve mentally berated myself several times over the last few days. I won’t make this mistake again!

Day 7 ~ ‘pairing’ galore!

Day 7 – November 12th, 2017

I simply forgot about posting yesterday… Between relaxing and going through school work with the kiddo it got shoved down in the back of my mind. I will continue prepping a weeks worth of posts on Sundays as that is working well and has me sitting down in the morning to do a quick start and then I usually finish it off in the afternoon.

Another meeting with the therapist (Behaviour Analyst) this morning to go over ‘pairing’ with my Hulkhands. It went very well so here’s hoping for continued progress in that regard 🙂

Day 6 ~ need some get up and go!

Day 6 – November 10th, 2017

I am feeling completely drained today and I’m not sure why. I don’t sleep well most nights, but it doesn’t normally leave me this sluggish the next day. I wanted to lay down for a nap by lunch time! Naps are extremely rare things for my to do or even contemplate so that says something for how tired I am today. Plus, that I feel low on energy is just strange because I typically have a difficult time expelling it throughout the day in time for bedtime.
