- Simon was up before the alarm today. When I got up I found him on the
couch cuddled up under a blanket where he had gone back to sleep after
not being able to locate the Darth Vader mask.
- Bagel. OJ. Clothes on. Wait for bus. Off to school.
- Working on financial spreadsheet. Working on establishing a budget.
- Chris checking out Facebook.
- Chris tells me “I like it when you are funny.”
- We head out for coffee and to my OB appointment.
Starbucks: decaf pumpkin spice for me, cinnamon dolce for Chris.
- Wait 45 mins for doctor ☺.
- All good at the appointment. Measuring a bit big which she said was a
good thing. Lots of political banter (love that about her). Will be
going to OHSU for second level II appointment on Friday.
- I love that Chris comes to the appointments with me. I love having a bit of time with him to grab a coffee.
- Planning to cook homemade chicken noodle soup tonight.
- Work on Designer Digitals releases for this weekend.
- Simon home at 1:45pm (every Wednesday). A high five to Chris as he leans out the window from the living room.
- In the house. “Stayed in green.” And into the Darth costume.
- “I am the best Darth in the whole world.” According to Simon.
- On comes Empire Strikes Back.
- Nap time for me on the couch.
- Chris goes to a meeting. I cook dinner (did the homemade chicken noodle soup and it was great). Simon does his homework. Fix Simon’s dinner.
- Chris comes home + we head to the indoor swimming pool. A Wednesday night tradition.
- We leave there with Simon in his PJ’s. Home. Brush teeth. Read book. Prayer.
- Work a bit more.
So how’s it going? Are you still playing along?
I know it is a challenge to keep going. I find that by this evening I have found my rhythm. I am not capturing everything, but it is enough to tell a pretty complete story about our lives right now. I am not obsessing about the photos or the words or the stuff (I barely have any this time around)…just letting it become a part of my day without overtaking my day.
In the comments section of the last post Dena asked about stuff. So far I have very few things: a couple receipts, a copy of the paper, grocery list, a few things Simon has brought home from school. It’s not a big deal if you don’t have a ton of stuff – in the end we will just be working with whatever we have collected.
Make sure you are getting yourself in some of your photos. Use your self-timer or have someone in your family take some shots of you. You are a major part of this story.
Hope you are enjoying this journey.
