I 4GOT SOME STUFF, SO I'LL WRITE AN ADDITION 2 MY LAST POST, "TYPICAL WEEK.":
WED.â€”IF I HAVE AD, CARA'S HERE, FROM 9:15-3:15 TO HELP ME PREPARE.
SAT.â€”VARIES EACH WEEK
SUN.â€”6:30-9 AM IS COMP. TIME UNLESS THE KIDS WAKE EARLY (USUALLY, JESS DOES & WAKES FIAâ€”SHE TRIES 2 WAKE ZACH, BUT HE'S A GOOD LITTLE SLEEPER & HARD 2 WAKE). 12:30-3:30 PM IS CHURCH.
2 SAT. & 2 SUN. A MONTH R FAMILY DINNERS AT 5 PM, BUT MARK USUALLY COOKS, SO WE LEAVE AT 4 PM.
A FRIEND, INTRODUCED ABOUT A YEAR AGO 2 ME, SAID:
"I wouldn’t wish my paralysis off onto any of you regardless of its many up sides, but what a blessing it has been to me in giving me the time to ponder, meditate, and pray. My spirit has been strengthened and my mind enriched as I have lain in bed, unable to move my body, but able to let my mind reach out to a loving and kind Heavenly Father, who through the Holy Ghost, has inspired and blessed me more than I could ever say."
I AM A NIGHT PERSON WHO ONLY NEEDS ABOUT 6-7 HRS. OF SLEEP, SO GOING 2 BED AT 9-10 PM MEANS I USUALLY LIE AWAKE THERE FOR ABOUT 2 HRS., WAITING 4 THE ALARM. I ALSO CAN'T FALL ASLEEP UNTI; ALMOST 10:30, USUALLY. IRONICALLY, EVEN THOUGH I CAN'T MOVE OR TALK & CAN LIE AWAKE 4 HOURS, THIS CAN BE HARD 4 ME. AT 1ST I WOULD OCCUPY TIME BY THINKING OF & PREPARING 4 THE UPCOMING DAY, DOING THERAPY, &/OR TRYING 2 REACH MY FACE 2 SCRATCH OR MOVE MY HAIR (BOTH ARE EASIER LYING DOWN, SO I TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IT!) SOMEDAYS WHAT HE SAID IS SO TRUE, ESP. IN THE MORNING HOURS SINCE DISTRACTIONS ARE FEW. I TRY 2 TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT. SOMETIMES, THOUGH, MY MIND WANDERS, AS MANY DO, & IT'S NOT SO TRUE, DESPITE MY LIMITATIONS.
