Update November 26, 2022


Saturday, we decided to buy a Highlander to replace the totaled Outback. It is a 7-seater, so we can fit our whole family in one car now. Then we watched a couple episodes of Psych and She-Hulk.

Sunday was a relaxing day in which not much happened.

Monday I ramped up to about 75% of my usual productivity goal. I wasn’t able to exercise due to still being tired from my injury, but I started my physical therapy stretches. Additionally, IL3 got his COVID and flu shots.

Tuesday was excellent. My tailbone seems to be improving, and it didn’t exhaust me like it had been – I managed the whole day without a nap. I credit the physical therapy exercises with the improvement. I had an interview to replace the hours I lost recently, and I should find out next week if I got it.

Wednesday was uneventful. I tried taking IL3 to Occupational Therapy, but my tailbone hurt too much for the 45 minutes each way. IL3 had a parent-teacher conference at the daycare, which went really well. His social skills and coloring skills have really improved, and the teacher said he’s right where he should be. D12 and M10 left with biomom to see their grandpa for Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving was great. With IL3’s help, I cooked corn casserole, green bean casserole, stuffing, turkey, garlic mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie. I was pretty exhausted by the end of all that cooking, but we all enjoyed the feast.

Friday was fun. I created my character for Saturday’s D&D one-shot with a group of friends – a 12th level Owlin Warlock. Then I had another interview for a potential job. Finally, I went shopping with Aaron and IL3 before going to work. I almost made my 10k step goal without going for a separate exercise!

Week’s Photos

Wednesday morning, M10 discovered that what he thought was a baby gate was actually a marble slide. Completely randomly, he rolled a marble down it and exclaimed “Rachel! Look! Isn’t it cool that a marble will go all the way down?!” IL3 was rolling marbles down it all day (I’m not sure how he figured that out) when M10 was at his mom’s.

    1. Lol. My sister crashed a few of my parent’s cars, if I remember correctly. One time, she totaled one, then had a fender bender (“someone hit me in a parking lot, I swear”) on the new one a week later.
