Wow, I can't believe it's December. (Maybe because the high today is in the 50's and they are forecasting near 70 tomorrow? That could have some thing to do with it.)
The yard is so drab, little bursts of color here or there but mostly browns and more browns thrown in with some brown. Blech. I much prefer to look at snow.
I stopped walking the dogs in the morning because of hunting season. Instead we have figured out that we can take them in the evening, after it's gotten dark. You can only hunt sun up to sun down, so going when it's dark we don't have to worry about it. It's kind of cool too! We have a big flashlight that we take, and since I go in the evening my husband gets to go with me. It's kind of fun! A few evenings there was enough snow and moon light reflecting that we didn't need the flash light at all.
We are getting some major insulation and air sealing work done on our house. I can not wait. We have a wood stove that really kicks out the heat but our house is in such bad shape when it comes to those things that we are losing it all. It is going to be seriously warm in here when it's all done and I can not wait! I hate being cold. It's going to cost a pretty penny, but there is a 15 year loan we can get to have the work done and since we plan to live here forever we are fine with that, and so on a monthly basis it's not bad and the savings on the heat will more than make it pay for itself over time.
G is doing good. His therapists are seeing lots of improvements. We are having a meeting tomorrow to see if speech therapy can be added due to his stutter that is not going away on it's own. I found an ADEM support group type thing on facebook but the verdict is out for me whether I want to participate there or not. ADEM affects every one so differently and with such different outcomes, relating G's situation to any one else's on there isn't very useful, and reading about the things they have experienced that we have not can just feel scary. Many people on there have had relapses or 2nd episodes which is REALLY some thing I do not want to think about, so I am worried I will be more stressed and worried reading there. Ignorance may be bliss on that front I'm afraid. When I focus on G and his progress and current state I feel pretty good so I just need to put my attention there.
