I always thought of blogs as being narcissistic, business related, or as my sister's, a way of keeping in touch or memorializing.

But, by necessity, I am learning a lot about myself. I find I need to get my thoughts out, and it helps me to know that someone else will read them. So I have created this little space for myself, to express the things I have trouble saying (be it emotional or physical trouble), to share what I'm going through, and what I'm learning through it.

I absolutely welcome comments. It's nice to know how people relate to what I'm saying.

Bad Day? Yeah, kind of.

I can barely move today. Not sure where my fingers are getting the ability, but I don't feel it anywhere else. Getting out of bed was a monumental effort. My eyes do not want to stay open. But as usual, my head is full of activity, and some of it wants to come out and play, so here I am.

I think there are several factors contributing to this dip. One, a relatively busy week; two, stress; three, change, which leads right back to stress; four, yeah, I don't know - oh yeah! - the weather has been very gray and rainy (although surprisingly, the air pressure has been relatively steady).

So now you want to know about my busy week, the stress and changes, right?

Introducing the Hedgie Baby

Yesterday was, as you can imagine, a big day in our family. We went to a rescue center to pick up our not-so-gently-used hedgehog. She is a real sweetie, especially considering what she's been through.

The drive out there is pretty long, so because of that, and because he just loves them so much, my son asked my parents to drive us. Which was good, because I just knew the whole day would use up a load of marbles. The nice lady at the rescue showed us how to bathe her, clip her toenails, and so forth. She also sourced everything for us, which for a spoonie is a fantastic thing. We came home fully equipped!

So far, the only extra thing I need to get used to is the constant noise of the pattering feet on the wheel. Other than that, a bit of out-of-cage time every day, and we're good to go.

Rambling Update

I've been wanting to write for a while, and I just can't seem to figure out what it is I need/want to say.

I am doing pretty well. Survived the Jewish and family holidays, and all the discombobulation of schedules that they inevitably bring. Adding to my disorientation were changes in my son's schedule due to relatively mild complications in his stepmom's pregnancy and impending birth of his half-sister. I was sure it was Monday all day Wednesday. It was not. It was indeed Wednesday. I checked. Various times. It was Wednesday every time.

Health-wise, I was very relieved to hear, and am so super happy to report that these shifts and changes did not deplete my slowly yet steadily growing energy reserve. YAY! Although they did tire me out, and I had a hard time maintaining my levels of peaceful acceptance. Especially when my house was playdate central.
