college, health

my crazy life goes on…

Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve been scarce. hope everyone is well! I had a crazy morning but just resting now. I decided not to go to the exercise class originally because I had a headache AND had to go to the store. Still hoping to go 2x a week but only been there once so far.

I’m going with Ryan to Giant Eagle after he gets home, and rest and clean while he’s at school. I’m going to take a shower/bath in a little while. I’ve already done half the dailies. I just got the shakes because I didn’t eat any protein this morning so I just had an egg sandwich and hopefully those shakes will calm down. Maybe I’m shaking from the migraine meds too…

I may also have a headache because I’m out of cocacola – don’t know. Going to buy some at the store – yum!

This morning I lost Ryan’s hearing aides, bookbag, and shoes, and my library card. I found the hearing aides in time for school (remembered I’d put them in this little bag) but not the shoes until after he went to school in sandals. Still haven’t found the bookbag or the library card. Luckily the library renewed them over the phone with my drivers license, but said it was a one-time favor.

My aide was in an accident as in the hospital! I don’t know any more than that. Prayers appreciated!

Rog is doing good. Got 248 files done yesterday and his goal today is 300. Then tomorrow he should be finishing up and come home. God is providing and sustaining us.

I’m still looking at court reporting or captioning so I can bring in hopefully in one day what it takes a week to make now – that would be more worth it. I wish I could start the court reporting course now but know it’s above my ability with all on my plate at this time. And from what I’ve seen it’s all online, I believe. So I would hardly have to leave the house 🙂

adhd, medications, organizing

stable here —

and I’m hopelessly behind as usual!

I’ve replaced with working with cleaning my house with a vengeance. Boy did it need it and still does!

I go this Thursday to the psych. to see if I need to some ADD meds. I still have trouble with losing things. I really have the house in pretty good shape but still couldn’t find Ryan’s book bag or shoes this morning. He went in sandals and a spare bag I had here. I also couldn’t find his hearing aids for a while and then remembered i’ put them in this other little bag. But wasted 5 minutes hunting for those.

I’m trying to force myself to stay on a system I call “dailies’ which keeps me petty much on track. I start in the back of the house and make all the beds and pick up extra stuff on the floor and put it away and wipe down both bathrooms with a bleach wipe. Then pick up the living room, and finally the kitchen. This takes me a few hours a day. I’d like to get to the point where in 2-3 hours I also clean the downstairs family room too and that bathroom but I still am not at the point where I’m getting down there. I also have a backlog of paperwork to file and stuff so that’s another chore I need to do!!! But it’s not automatic for me – I Have to have a system or it doesn’t get done.

Well, I’d better get to the system 😉 And I have the remains of a headache so not feeling great… was supposed to go to an exercise class today but putting off til Thurs. AND MUST go grocery shopping this morning– my aid is not coming as she usually does in afternoon for Chris so no way I’m taking all the kids shopping. She was in an accident – not sure what happened – hoping she’s okay!!
