The beginning of the day was heavenly. Had the most relaxing 90 minute massage and was feeling so happy afterwards. I stopped at Target to pick up a couple of containers I needed to get a couple things cleared off the kitchen counter and then headed home. That was my mistake. LOL I was not expecting my little guy to be so frustrating. He was choosing not to listen/focus at all. This does come harder for him with his autism, but today there was a lot of choice going on with it. It continued the entire day and sadly I was happy to see him go with Mr. T (from co-op) about 5 p.m. for the evening (Awanas) just for a break. Before lunch I had the kids (Maegann was able to help anyway) help straighten up the garage. Things were still just thrown everywhere from Saturday and it was overwhelming and I knew Tim needed to see there was room for a vehicle and/or working on his shelves again. Didn't take much time.
After lunch I took the kids with me on errands (bank, post office and storage shed) and then we were home about an hour before going back across town to drop Maegann off for bible study (it is 3 minutes from our old place). Once home had a few minutes to try and get Isaac ready to leave (lucky break that his ride was late). Thankful Tim could pick Maegann up on his way home from work so I could get supper put together (chili and cornbread).
After supper I headed to the grocery store as I needed to get items for a meal tomorrow for a co-op family. The mom had a miscarriage about a week ago but began having issues on Monday during lunch and ended up with a D&C so co-op is trying to get meals for them for about a week or so.
I also got the pre-move laundry caught up today (4 loads of towels & linens). Whew!
Tim's project tonight is trying to get air TV into the living room. We have tons of "dishes" on the roof, but we just want the handful that are free. This house is totally wired to the ex media room and not the living room. There was an antenna in the attic (rules say "no antennas on the roof) but it didn't broadcast anything. Going to buy a small one that you have inside the house instead and try that. Means we will be delayed on watching Survivor until tomorrow as we won't stay up late enough to see it online tonight.
Slept better last night as we finally found the controls for the electric blanket. Yep...we had gone from 80 on moving day back to 50 so it's been cool at night. Tim even worked on the heat for the house this morning as it was so chilly.
Tomorrow.... Our errands are to file the Homeowner's Exemption at the courthouse, stop by the appliance place where we bought the frig and see if they can adjust a drawer (keeps falling off and we don't see any way to change it) and go buy dog food. Isaac has group at 3:15 so I will drop supper items off for the family while he's there and then after group will drop him off for his physical therapy with Kenzie. Maybe I can find time to get the rest of these address changes done.
I am pretty much at a standstill on organizing until Tim can help me move furniture around in the ex-media room that currently looks like a messy storage room.
