Man, my issues with ADHD have been bad lately. While I’m not formally diagnosed, I have worked in mental health long enough to recognize many of the symptoms in myself. As of late, it’s been the time thing that’s tripping me up. Just trying to keep track of time has been so hard. I feel like I blink and a week has gone by already. I’m trying to figure out how to fix this, but the ADHD is defeating me right now. So, I appreciate y’all so much as you bear with me and my issues. I promise I’ll figure out a way to work around this and be here more regularly.
As much as I miss my son being a baby, I enjoy watching him in kindergarten. He’s grown up so much in these first few months of school. The other day he got to go down to the Children’s Theater to see How the Grinch Stole Christmas. He had such a good time and loved to talk about his take on the play. He’s also learning to read and has quite the list of words he knows. There’s a core group of boys he loves to play with and often talks about. And, he’s getting to be more and more independent. I’m glad he still loves to come snuggle by me, though. I’m not ready to give that up.
I’m cold. Like my feet are ice cubes cold. This is why I hate the winter. Snow is beautiful and, being from Minnesota, Christmas is just not right without snow. But the cold can go back from where it came and stay there. Even as I type this, my hands are probably enough to give someone else frostbite—and I’ve been inside for several hours. My house is set at 70 degrees Fahrenheit, so it’s not like it’s cold in here. And I know it’s only going to get worse before it gets better here. As in another 30-50 degrees colder than it currently is (20 degrees above zero for anyone interested). Yep, even Hell freezes over around here (Hell, Michigan that is). So much fun.
