Just joking on that title. My home is wherever my family is, of course. But somehow, the presence of my mom’s hutch and our china does make the place feel finished even though there are still boxes and bags everywhere…
Today I’m rolling with the punches pretty well and there have definitely been some hiccups this morning. What’s a girl to do though?
Cricket seems to be doing relatively well, all things considered. She is enjoying getting to sleep in our bedroom, something she hasn’t been allowed to do since she was a kitten. She still jumps up and down on things and it seems that it’s just the lower portion of her leg that is affected by whatever is going on, nerve-wise. I’ve gotten over the fact that she hasn’t been given a death sentence just yet…She’s just not as able-bodied as she once was. And goodness knows, I’m not one to criticize not having the faculties one once had! She’s a good, petite cat and I’m happy to have whatever time we have left together.
Liam gets registered for kindergarten next week, to start next school year. So so hard to believe my baby will be in the big school! He’s ready though, you can tell.
As is the nature of my illness, I’ve got my ups and downs since we moved into the new house. I slept three days this past week due to anxiety and overwhelmed-ness. I’ve got some medication specifically for anxiety but I’m reluctant to take it. However, I’ve finally gotten it through my thick head that I’ve got to take it for now, at least. The anxiety and post-traumatic stress make it hard for me to focus on getting anything done when I do not take the medicine, but the difference is like night and day when I have taken it. This is a medicine aside from my normal antidepressant and mood stabilizer and anti-psychotic. I don’t mind the volume of pills, I just don’t like taking that particular kind of anti-anxiety med. Suppose I just need to get over it and take care of myself so I can take better care of my family!
I definitely need to get back into taking pictures. That’s part of my therapy and I know it. It’s just something that I haven’t felt the inspiration for yet in this new (but beautiful) space, mostly because our things are strewn about. Will work on it today.
Home is wherever my family (and my china) are, for sure. And this definitely feels like home.
