Day 141

I knew this was going to be a lot of work but I guess I didn't know how tiring it was going to be. Last night I finally was able to go to bed at midnight. Rough night for both of us. Up at 2 again at 4:30 yet again at 6:15. I did get up then. No use trying to put off the inevitable.

Saturday cleaning followed by our new routine. I hope it get his all down quickly as I need to get more sleep, more time to cook and just more time for other things. Maybe things won't be so bad once she is more comfortable at home and I am more comfortable with how thing need to go.

I made a run to Wal-Mart yesterday to stock up on things I may need over the next few days anticipating snow, rain and wind. But as I was stowing all the paraphernalia they sent me home with I realized I need either more space or more bins. Since more space is not possible I made an other early run to Wal-mart for bins. I have to have things organized so I can put my finger on exactly what I want. I brought home my treasures, got busy in my space and voile! Mission accomplished.
I feel much better now.

My mom donated 10 sheet sets to our cause. When Nicole saw them all she wanted to call her right away and tell her Thank You. I am saying thank you also thins morning. I never thought I would need so many but I have already used 3 sets. I guess my middle name will be the laundress. Oh well, at least I don't have to go the the laundr-o-mat! What a blessing that is.

We are getting use to each other. It is surprising how much you have to take into consideration. Not only their feelings but how they want to be treated in such a close proximity to you. We are learning the give and take all over again.

I do have to say Nicole is very appreciative of all that is done for her. I try not to do everything and she wants to do a lot of things but what she can't do and I need to step in, WOW! It is nice to not be growled at and to know she is truly thankful.

I bit of reprieve for me. Nicole friend, Ashley, is going to come by soon and hang out with Nicole. Christian and I as well as Natalie (cousin) are all going to New Moon. I actually can't believe it myself. I thought I would be seeing for the first time when it came out on DVD. But nope. A night out with Christian. That doesn't ha[[en very often.

Wow, what an incredible journey my friend. I'm so glad Nicole is home with you and in good hands. You do have your hands full, I seriously don't know how you do it. You have been such an inspiration to me through all of your challenges. You rock!! Hang in there and give everyone a big squeeze. Tell Nicole we love her and think of her daily....Love Sandr
