This has been one of those days where you wake up tired and never get over feeling tired. I also had yet another headache, but thankfully I can take the "severe headache" pill and it lessens when used with my essential oils "sinus bomb." This inversion (dirty air) is really messing with me. On top of that, my body has aches and pains all over from the workout yesterday with the trainer. I am hoping tomorrow's workout will help work some of these aches out!
The day has been quiet, but busy. Isaac had back-to-back therapies beginning at 9 a.m. and he was home by 12:30 and about 15 minutes later we were all heading out for Maegann's hair appointment. She is making changes to her hair and it is making her look like a young woman! She needs to stop growing up!!! We then headed to Taco Time for lunch at 2 so now nobody is hungry, except Tim, so decided to just go with leftovers and people could do what they want tonight. We all have to be somewhere by 7. Girls to craft night and boys to Isaac's basketball practice.
Once home this afternoon I finally stopped procrastinating and got busy cleaning out the sewing containers. I can actually find things in my sewing box again! I have a pile of patterns and some sewing items to get rid of and also put a bag together of ribbons to donate to the craft group. I was taken by surprise at the emotions that I went through going through everything. Just the memories of the time spent making doll clothes and outfits for my "little" girl, but the bomb came when I stumbled across a letter from my mom that she had written in Dec. 1983. She has been gone 19 years as of yesterday. Yes, I cried and I cried hard and long. I miss her so much and I am saddened every year when the date crosses by on the calendar. Anyway, the task is finished and leaves me down to one more pile of things to go through and I am finished purging and organizing until the drawers are built for storage that will go along the wall next to the staircase.
I was able to get dad's first appointment made with the pain clinic. I'm sure he won't be happy that he has to wait until next Thursday and I know he will be very upset that it isn't to take care of things completely. I am going to beg them to do something to offer relief until the actual injection. I also got things put in place to swap out his medical bed so that Medicaid will pay for it instead of us. That trade is supposed to happen on Wednesday.
Tomorrow... Trainer, Isaac's therapies (both again), school with the kids and game night here at the house. Our first one with the "20 something" group from church. Just going to barbecue hamburgers so will be a simple meal.
