Start of school. Meetings with teachers. Caring teachers. Teachers that are on the ball and sometimes even a step ahead of me. Doing what they are supposed to do without me having to remind them. It's been a long time since I have been to a school like that! Thank you!
Deliveries this week included: bed frame for my oldest son's bed, bedside tables to our room, a gas propane tank to the grill, the grill connection unit, garbage pick up, the dog tag for Sophie with our new number on it and even accepting a package for the neighbor.
My phone calls and emails were well received and I managed to have the parking permit company allow me to pick up my permit tomorrow so we can park the car on our block and not pay £2 an hour to park. So many helpful people everywhere. I am flabbergasted and not used to it.
The bed frame delivery company called me the day after delivery to see if I was pleased with their service.
Delivery of the rental car to my house, that is service I could get used to. So cool except for the part of finding a pay parking spot that I could maneuver into. I decided that only making left turns was the safest way to go today. Tomorrow I might have to make a right turn when I go to pick up the permits.
The kids have liked school so far. I have met a few other moms and it looks to be a promising year for all of us. They were happy when the teacher said there wouldn't be homework for the first 2 weeks.
I have energy in the morning but am feeling tired in the afternoon. As soon as I have a chance I take a quick nap. Of course, every time I do that it is interrupted by a phone call.
Fatigue is bearable if I don't overdo it. As soon as I do too much, I am reminded that I am still on this journey of recovery and that my body has taken a beating.
There is a lot to fix to get things to work in the everyday life. But once that is done, I can start catching up on all the other things that I should have done these past few months but have not had enough strength to tackle. I might have the boxes unpacked by Christmas.....or I might not.
LIFE IS GOOD. NEW SCHOOL. NEW FRIENDS. NEW HAIR. NEW CLOTHES. GOTTA LOVE IT. GRATEFUL.
