I had the day off of PHP yesterday (and today) and didn't do much until 1:00, then it was RUN RUN RUN!
We got a food card because I am a starving artist even though I technically have a job with a payment guarantee and everything. And Tim is disabled but thus far has been denied disability (we have a lawyer now). You may know the feeling of being able to go to the store and actually buying everything you need (and a few things you don't) after struggling to come up with money for basics like milk and cereal. It's a great feeling. I made a pot roast in the old pressure cooker for dinner last night (put everything in, get the cooker indicator up to cook, and cook 8 - 10 minutes per pound of beef). It was totally something indulgent that we wouldn't have had the money for if not for our food card. And it was really good!
Took Kendall to the podiatrist and her bunion surgery has healed up enough that she can start skating again in 2 weeks - I only have two more weeks where I'm not a skater mama - Lord help me! Her feet are two different sizes now (a 5 and a 7) so we're not sure how she's going to even skate with the skates that she's got. All that is nothing, though, compared to her excitement of getting back on the ice.
(At this point, I made that totally awesome roast and did the dishes).
I'm still pretty worn out, but I'm able to get a lot more done than I have been. I'm not pushing myself as much. I totally pushed myself to the edge trying to be super housewife/writer/photographer/mommy. If I'm tired, I lay down (or just sit). If I'm getting nervous, I breathe. I'm getting good at deep cleansing breathes.
Today I take Will for a speech therapy evaluation (he has his own gobbeldygook language that we all have problems understanding). Then I get to make dinner and not have to come up with something crazy and thrown together from the disparate ingredients in my cabinets. I'm thinking chicken and dumplings or chili or maybe even pizza! Having food is a nice thing.
