Today almost didn’t happen

      2 Comments on Today almost didn’t happen

We have an insanely busy day ahead of us. It will begin by meeting with Emmett’s teachers because he came home today and requested that we pull him from the school. I can’t go into what’s going on until I meet with the teachers and gain more insight.

Lizze and I will leave from the school and head to the Cleveland Clinic, where we will spend the rest of the day.

Lizze has a string of appointments and they begin first thing and won’t finish until dinner time. It’s going to be an exceptionally long day and unfortunately, these appointments aren’t all in the same location which means there’s going to be a good deal of driving.



Things are a bit tight in the financial department at moment and trips like this are expensive, at least by our standards. Food, parking and fuel aren’t cheap.

I was worried for the last few days how I was going to pull the trip off but last night we got a few jobs and that gave us a tiny bit of breathing room.

Someone is bound to ask so I’ll explain.

When I say I have a job, it’s usually something to do with an advertising client. These jobs come in at irregular intervals. Sometimes we can go awhile without any and there are times where I wake up to several or more, waiting in my inbox.

We lucked out with the timing on this round of jobs. I’m incredibly grateful for the business because it allowed me get my wife to her out of town doctors appointments and maybe something to eat while we’re spending the day bouncing between appointments. One of these appointments is very, very important and has the potential to be a life changer for her.

Anyway, that’s what I usually mean when I talk about a job.. ☺

Gavin will be with Lizze’s parents and they will be getting the boys from school in the afternoon as well. We’re super grateful for the help. ☺

I’m going to do my best to hold everything together, so we can get through the day and with any luck, end things on a high note.



  • If that school thinks that your kids aren’t doing so well at school then home school them. That way they can do the classwork online.
    For socialising maybe get them to choose something new to do. Scouts or something fun.

    Whenever we know we will have to be out all day like that, we pack a picnic lunch so that eliminates at least one of those costs. And since it is just you and Lizzie going you don’t have to really worry about sensory issues with food
