I know I said I would be posting more...

but somehow, a week off from school has been just as filled up as a week with school. I'm still struggling with a cold that continues to make my life cruddy but its now just intermittent instead of constant so maybe I'm gaining on it.

Last night was the first night I really got to just do nothing and that was mighty nice. Especially since there was also a home cooked meal of meat loaf, scalloped potatoes and pumpkin pie!

The BSU is really beginning to feel better and more confident and less shaky so she has been stretching her activities and last night it was dinner. She wasn't happy with the results and admits that she is out of practice in the kitchen, I assured her that sitting at our table with a meal she prepared was just dandy with me and that I would eat anything she wants to practice on.

She's felt so bad for so long that feeling good like she is right now is intimidating. She admits that is rather like waiting for the second shoe to fall while she anticipates the potential onset of feeling bad again. I'm encouraging her to first of all enjoy feeling good and secondly to practice feeling good and do things to reinforce the good feeling with positive behavior. Its a little hard for her to accept that idea but we might just keep moving forward with a little positive reinforcement.

Anyway, its a real nice change for all of us.
