In my world, disrupting routine is an absolute no no

It was a relatively quiet day. The biggest thing we had to worry about were deliveries of supplies to the house. I mentioned eariler that I was organizing the pantry and putting things back where they belong. That made putting new things away, so much easier. Over time, things get put back incorrectly or weren’t …

I’m hoping for a good day

I was asleep by 11pm and up before 8am this morning. I feel pretty good and I’m looking forward to taking on the day. Gavin was up before I was but I beat everyone else. I got the trash cans put away and watered our mint garden. Ruby spent some time outside with me while …

There was drama but we recovered

Today was a sort of a mixed bag for the boys and I. We got off to a great start in the morning but then there was a shit ton of drama surrounding Gavin’s IVIG Infusion. He’s becoming paranoid when it comes to this and won’t leave the needles alone after they’re placed. He fiddles …

That is not conducive to good mental health. I find that I’m doing really good on some days but bad on others. I’m anxious, preoccupied with mortality …

It worked out for the best

Yesterday, we had a chance to get out of the house and we cautiously took advantage of it. We decided to head out to Quail Hollow for a little while. It’s about a 20 minute drive and we have to judge the situation once we get there as to whether it’s safe or not. We …

I can’t keep going without sleep

I’ve been having the worst time sleeping lately. This past week I haven’t had more than 3 hours of sleep a night, if I’m lucky. I’m grateful for even getting that much but it’s not enough. Even melatonin isn’t helping and that’s about as hardcore as I can personally get because I need to be …
