Looking after ourselves

Re: Focussing on the positives-

Biggest positive for today is MIL is looking a little brighter. Drs are working on a transfer back to local hospital which will make visiting much easier. 

 

Re: Focussing on the positives-

Something that made me laugh today.

While darling took S1 & S2 to the movies this afternoon I took  S3 to the shops and got some new crayons books and a water bottle for him. Well when we got home he very excitedly took them across to the bird and was telling him all about them lol.

The funniest part was the bird actually looked like he was listening and looking. 

Re: Focussing on the positives-

awwww that is sooo good @Determined about S3 xxx

Re: Focussing on the positives-

One big positive for me this week.

When darling took S1 & S2 to the movies earlier this week while I looked after S3 she sent me a text while they were out thanking me for allowing them that time out. It really softened my heart as expressions of appreciation are few and far between.

Well I was not laughing to begin with as it all began when I twisted an ankle and fell down a flight if stairs 😫

Well when S3 saw me sitting on the floor propped up in a corner where I landed he ran to get a book and sat down beside me for a story. Most excited like I was sitting there just for him 😅

At least it took the pain away for a bit. Laughter really is the best medicine.
