It's not been easy, but I'm doing it.... I'm sunny. I'm GD optimistic and cheerful. Dammit.
Here comes another slightly garbled post though - I'm so sorry! I'll take the decline in comments as a sign that y'all would prefer my normal writing style to return. I'll send that memo up to my (foggy) brain asap.
Sess has still not (independently) eaten, though I have forced about 4 syringes of wet food and water, and at least 12 zillion of water alone into her... she growls with the food, so I don't do too much. The maple syrup worked a bit though, I think I noticed the most change in her after starting that regiment. D and I went to the movies today to see Alice in Wonderland (slightly disappointing, not worth a review post) and when we got back she came to drink outta the tub! I tweeted it here.
This makes me (disproportionately?) happy
I am still not sleeping well, though I have taken to falling FAST asleep at around 4 or 5am in the last few nights, meaning that I'm getting a good 3- 4 hours of real sleep, which is an improvement from NONE. The bad Baycrest dreams are getting shorter. Appreciated. Gone would be better. But I'm being patient. And trying to stay off the sleeping pills. I don't wanna get hooked. Finding a fuzzy comfy fog in a little blue pill every night seems just a wee bit too tempting now-a-days.
And this morning I woke up with a crick in my neck - I look like a friggin' moron, turning my whole body to look around.
And, other than that, I'm pretty numb. I'm immersing myself in work as much as possible (having D here instead of out doing the jobs is kind of distracting, but as of the 15th he'll be out doing sales calls, much better for growing our little company. In my haste to anticipate having my days to myself again once Spring had sprung I forgot that hiring a crew meant that he did not have to work sun up to sun down if he didn't want to. Right now we only have one vehicle, so he has to stay home with me all day 'till the crew returns. As of the 15th we'll have two again. Thank god, or I'd probably... I won't finish that sentence.)
I listened to my uncles songs yesterday and had a good cry... every so often I look up in the sky and look out for birds(wondering why?)... I'm thinking of uploading some of his music for you all to hear - is that something that would appeal to y'all? It's not in English but the melodies are gorgeous. I'm not 100% how to do that without putting 'em on YouTube, or in my sidebar like my songs are, so any tips would be GREATLY appreciated! And I'm gonna get back on the Juri and the Bears Blog. I think it could be a great support to adults and children alike, who are going through a terminal illness.
And my plans for today? I've got more company organization work to do, customer calling to do...
and more F*ing positivity to radiate. <3
