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.

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: “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.

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 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 27 ~ December 4th, 2017
A fairly relaxed day I suppose. A fantastic morning with the kiddo and my friend (his EA), they are getting along so well! It makes me incredibly happy! We had about a 30 minute hiccup in the afternoon when I decided TV was done for a while and I also needed to get my run in for my workout program today. Thankfully he was less physical today than he has been the last week or so and he used his words more than I expected, though still not a lot either. It’s always a work in progress and next time will be better!

Day 23 ~ November 30th, 2017
Got out for some outdoor exploring and nature collecting again this morning. Plus, I wanted to scope out an area that has a suspension bridge that requires a bit of hike to it as well. Next outting might be up to the bridge, but this morning we went further up the back road, thankfully the road wasn’t bad for my little car. We grabbed some more sticks and rocks (small and medium) to do more painting in the future and the sticks for wrapping. At the spot I stopped to park the car there was a deer carcass off to the side, which means that someone shot it and cleaned it up there. Completely illegal and well within the city limits -_- so dangerous!
