Trying To Get It All Done...

Monday, April 08, 2013

I have been very busy! I only got two runs in last week. I did get into PT twice. I did get lots of walks in with Roxy and have been eating right. I had an eval Friday and my strength and flexibility measurements have improved considerably.

Friday I head back to California for two weeks. I am taking Roxy with me this time. My husband rented an apartment for us so we will be out of my brother's way. We are going to use aerobeds and a folding table and chairs to eat at. It's going to be quite primitive but it will work. The complex has a fitness center, pool and lots of activities. It is pet friendly so Roxy should be happy. My son still wants to live out there. This should give him the opportunity to start making friends. We rented it for three months so we will see what happens.

My son is getting neurotherapy 4 days per week. He sits in front of a computer screen for two hours per day with a one hour break in between. He presses a button whenever he sees a blue light while electrodes are attached to his head. Sounds pretty boring but he is doing it. He now has one week done - 9 to go. I pray that he doesn't give up. He also sees a therapist once per week. I asked my husband to change that to 3 times per week. He will also start seeing a nutritionist this week. I want to make sure he understands how important this all is to his body.

My husband will fly home next Monday so we can have the weekend together. We are planning to go to Temecula on a wine tasting tour. We talk and text throughout the day. I have crammed a month of work (home and business) into two weeks! I have been going nonstop. I spent Saturday pouring through all the medical bills and insurance claims. I wrote them all on a spread sheet and paid all that were through the whole insurance process. I am so thankful that I chose the lower deductible! My son's first hospital visit took care of it. Today I am working on stuff for our mortgage refinance. We started it right before we knew we would be going back and forth to California. Bad timing! When I get back to California I won't have much to do so I will have more time to run and work out. It's strange going from one extreme to the other.

I thank God that we have the means to be able to do all of this!

    Wow - this is crazy stuff going on with you. I can walk on the beach anytime or eat or whatever you want to do. I may not have a car. I hope we can both just walk and sit and vent. I can't wait...

    My secret to handling stress is to compartmentalize each task. I am doing spreadsheets of our receipts and check registers. The printer wouldn't print items I had typed in red, so I changed them all to green, and it worked. Hubby gets paid today, but right now money is tight and I don't want to have to run out to buy ink cartridges.

I admire you for all that you get done. You have a lot on your shoulders so schedule in some "me time." It is important for you to take care of yourself while you go through all of this.

The girlfriend sounds like a manipulator.

    The apartment sounds like a great idea, and so does finding your blessings. A little running, a little Roxy, and yes, having the means to get the care you all need.
Safe travels -- literally and metaphorically!
