This is such a good format to reflect on the past month (and more), so once again I plan on participating in the round-up at Chatting at the Sky. We'll see if I actually remember to link up in time.
It's been a long hard month. I'm not sure if anything will be silly, or if it will all be serious, but let's see what I write, shall we?
I have learned that I am desperately in need of margin in my life. What is margin? Merriam Webster online has several definitions but this is the one that applies to me: : an extra amount of something (such as time or space) that can be used if it is needed.
I do not have any extra time. I do not have any extra space. I need both.
I didn't say I've learned how to do this.
Usually it's February that is hard on me - but this year it's been a blur from February into March. Robbie's headaches continued on and on - between 4-7 per week. Poor buddy.
I had a bad headache when I woke up on Sunday, enough that I ended up staying home from church. And as I was dealing with the pain in my head, I wondered how I would deal with it not knowing what it was, or knowing that in all probability, it will end... I do not want to get into all of it, but I'll just say that my child with autism doesn't deal well with pain in general - and really doesn't deal well with headaches.
Thankfully, we've found out that there isn't anything terribly wrong with his head/brain (Sedated MRI. Long story. Not going to tell it. It's done. Thank God.). And... as of today, he has only had ONE headache in the past 10 days. Here's hoping the trend continues to improve.
I love to knit. I do not love learning how to knit. And I do not have enough time to really learn yet, but I'm making some time for it anyway.
And cables are actually very easy to do. At least the ones I am doing in the scarf I am knitting are easy. Who knew? They look so cool, and I was nervous about trying a pattern with cables in it, but don't be nervous - it's really not hard at all. At least not so far.
I went away on an extended weekend trip with my daughter this month, and I learned that Nina is a fabulous travel companion. We had such a great time together.
When our outgoing flight was cancelled, I figured out that she is a lot like me. I didn't like having the weather cancel our flight - but there wasn't anything I could do about it. You do what you can, and let the rest go, and try to keep a good attitude about the whole thing. And Nina is the same way. We settled into our long wait in line to talk with an agent about rescheduling, and we even had fun waiting. (The icing on the top of that was when the agent managed to get us on a flight that got us to our destination only 4 hours behind the original schedule!)
I think that will be it for this month. I'm really looking forward to April and hoping for spring weather!
