In Which We Have A Crazy Day

Today was one of those days that ended up being kind of ridiculously busy. 

While Connor was at school I worked on some roller derby business, spent some time on the phone with our insurance company and finished (finally!) planting out the herb garden in the forty minutes or so that the weather cleared up.  Then I searched for his hearing aids (which are still AWOL) while he took a short nap.  When he woke up we were off to run some errands, including stopping by our adoption agency to drop off some more paperwork and have a quick meeting with our program manager.  From there we drove directly to physical therapy.  Connor usually has PT on Wednesdays, but we needed to switch our time this week so instead we had an evening appointment, which we ended up having to push even later because we got stuck in rush hour traffic on the way there.  I was supposed to have a roller derby meeting after that and a promo as well, but by the time I got Connor home it was already over and I was absolutely exhausted.

I'm not used to doing so many things out of the house in one day any more-- at least not with Connor in tow.  For the past three or four months he's been having so many seizures that I've been pretty much confined to the house when Jer or his respite care worker aren't here.  I've forgotten just how much more energy it takes to pull an eight hour day of running around with a kiddo!  Connor did really well, though-- he seemed to enjoy himself and didn't get crabby or impatient.  I think that alone shows just how well he's doing health-wise right now.  He especially liked the adoption agency trip-- they had a large sign on the wall that included pictures of some Asian children on it, and he got really excited about that and asked to take it home.  He also asked to take the receptionist home.  We're working on the idea that all people who have  black hair and skin darker than his are not his sister, but I don't think he's quite got it down yet.

Thankfully tomorrow should be a fairly quiet day, and that will give me the chance to recover!
