Had a DUH sort of day

Its been kind of a weird day here today. I had a headache ALL night-like one of those sick headaches-went to bed with it, woke up with it. Got through it somehow. I have been doing all sorts of odd things today-like for instance putting lids on things that they don't belong on (swapping the peanut jar lid for the one on the gel medium-duh!!!)
I took Aidan lunch today because he was griping about what they were having at the school today for lunch. what a great mom I am LOL Anyway, I had ordered a small thing of Chili for myself and a baked potato. I took the bag to him, and came home and realized that not only did his bag have his spicy chicken meal, but it also had the chili!! DUH!!!!
The only thing I can blame it on is the fact I was just SO exhausted today.

Something good did come out of the day though. In my post from last week about how upset I was about Gillian and her issues with her possible Sensory Integration stuff-I talked to her doctor about it today. Gillian has an ear infection, so I was there anyway, so the lightbulb in my head did actually go off while I was there and I discussed my concern with her. She is totally on board with me about it after talking with me in great detail. So, I have a referral to see a Neurologist for her. The doc gave me a name of a neurologist in the area that is an expert on this Sensory Integration stuff, so I am thrilled. I have been talking to my husband tonight alot about it, and he has said how I just HAVE to endure it, that it will all be okay in the end. Its so much easier said than done though! I try, I really do. Never did I ever imagine that these preemie issues would just keep on going. Its only been 4 years, but seems like so much longer. I guess it can take them up to 8 years to catch up.
Tonight has really made me reflect on the things I am grateful for. I delve into my art or my favorite music when I am feeling stressed or pressured. Its my coping mechanism and I am so grateful I have at least that. I am grateful to have those things to make life easier to deal with, or at least the moments that are difficult. This past week has been much easier because of those things. So, its all positive. I am trying to just hang onto these positive things. I have to, thats the only way to get through this.
its all gonna be ok.

Kristy, I am so glad that you talked with the doctor and got a referral from a neurologist. I hope that you are able to see the neurologist soon. I know that sometimes things seem so overwhelming but your hubby is right. In the end it will all be okay. You are doing the best you can and it is good that you have a way to deal with the stress. You are right, it is a good time to look at what you are grateful for...it seems to put life into perspective. Hang in there. Gillian is so lucky to have you for a mom.
